Teen Mom Lawyer on Charges: It's a Set Up!

3/29/2011 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The lawyer for "Teen Mom" star Jenelle Evans tells TMZ ... his client is the victim of a set up, and money is at the bottom of it all.

Dustin Sullivan, Jenelle's lawyer, tells us he has a "serious problem" with the fact that Brittany Maggard -- the woman who pushed Jenelle before the brawl -- and other parties involved were "paid substantially" for pictures and videos related to the incident.

Sullivan says it's suspicious that cameras were present when Jenelle arrived -- indeed, Sullivan says, multiple cameras were present capturing different angles of the impending brawl.

Sullivan is in the process of interviewing witnesses to determine if Britany Truett -- the woman who caught the beatdown -- pre-programmed the melee. 

And, Sullivan says, it's "highly suspicious" Britany waited five days before calling the cops.

032811_fight_videoSullivan says if there's proof of a set up, he will make that a centerpiece of the case when it goes before a jury.

when someone walks down a sidewalk, they rarely make eye contact with anyone they pass. they give the time of day to anyone who wants to know. but if they get hit by a bus, people rush over, not to see if they're ok, but to see the carnage. so of course when a couple of chicks are about to fight, you can bet money on the fact that people are gonna break out their camera phones and record the "action." this "set-up" deal the attorney is coming up with is just a ploy to get his client off the hook.

leave it to a reality show to exploit and glamorize the stupidity of a certain age group.

I suppose this is one way that Jenelle can pay back her mom for stealing her credit card. I'll bet that she was part of this and gets appearance offers; else, Kieffer set it up.

I don't care if Jenelle was set up or not. She didn't have to pummel anybody. She is no victim.

I hate Jenelle. Shes a piece of Sh*t. I had a child at 17 and i had problems, its no excuse to not care for your child. I cant imagine not being there everyday. She always says on the show that her mom is stupid and all she wants is to see her kid. But she is never even there with her child. Her mom is right and i feel really bad for her mother and that beautiful child. He is going to grow up with a piece of sh*t mother and no father being raised by his grandmother. its disgusting i wish it had been me she decided to punch in the face. She needs the dumb slapped outa her. She needs to grow up and step up. I dont ever see that happening because not only does she put herself before her child she puts men and smoking weed and going out before him too. I just dont understand how a mother could do that. it makes me sick.

Why put trash like this on TV? Why do I pay a cable bill to watch trash like this on TV? Why would anyone want to make a show like this and why would anyone want to be on a show like this...besides no moral people. Gosh, is this all the TV producers can come up with for TV watchers? I think they need a new job. Keep trash like this out of sight. It provokes more trash.

None of these girls are women.... They are all stupid little girls who are uneducated, high on drugs, and sleeping around with people. Did they no grow out of the fighting and drug **** in junior high or what?!? GROW UP!!! Get a jobh. They all should have been at work or scholl not figting outside of the trailer park!! Jenelle needs to get her **** together and start being a mom... if her mom would let her. "the pusher" should go back to jail on that violation (HAHA?) and the so called "vistim" is not a victim of anythign except not knowing how to defend herself. She was standing outside to fight- just because she got her @ss kicked now she wants to sue? What is she going to sue for Jenelles financial aid check!?!?! REALLY? These ghetto girls need help before they are strung out on heroin or crack and charging $ to open their legs or stealing other peoples cc's.
