'Teen Mom' Pusher: Jenelle Got PAID for Fight Video

3/31/2011 7:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The girl who shoved "Teen Mom 2" star Jenelle Evans before that fight erupted ... is dropping a dime -- BIG TIME -- claiming Jenelle was actually in on a plot to make money off the brawl.

Brittany Maggard claims Jenelle only got up the guts to fight Britany Truett -- the eventual ass-beat victim -- because Maggard, Maggard's sister, and their friend Nick had her back. Maggard says Nick had the video camera.

After the fight, Maggard claims she and Nick came up with the idea to sell the video -- and Jenelle not only thought it was a "good idea" ... but SHE called "someone she knows at a [photo] agency to purchase the video."

According to Maggard, they sold the vid for $5,000 -- and Jenelle wanted a bigger cut because, as she said, "You wouldn't get any money if I wasn't famous!"

Jenelle's attorney says he doesn't believe Maggard's accusations.

She beat her A$$. She didn't need anyone to have her back. If it's two girls fighting, it's over a dude, the last tampon, or someone got called a skank.

Remind me again why I should care about this teenage redneck love triangle?
I feel sorry for Generation Y. Between Myspace, Facebook and twitter they have no privacy and have taken narcissism to a whole other level. Now they're starting to pay the price for it.

If true that has to be the among the most expensive iPhone or HTC footage ever. I would have minused $1000 for starting by pointing the phone in the direction of the sun. What times we live in. First that someone would see profit in something so mindblowingly stupid and second that the recording technology is widely available.

What difference does "set up" or payment matter to the defendant? She's still guilty of assault, it just means there's a conspiracy and others can be charged also. Hope the camera guy especially is charged and has to use his share of the money to pay attorney fees. At least now the State of North Carolina knows they have some money and are not indigent.

These people are so effing trashy!! It's sad to know that not a single one of them will ever amount to anything and that they will be raising their children to be just as awful :-(

DEAR TEEN MOM: Please fire Jenelle asap!! She is pure trash, doesn't have custody of her son so she isn't a mom at all.. maybe a mother effer but NOT A REAL MOM in any sense of the word!! Her behavior should not be condoned and I guess they all also get paid 60 grand to be on this show. The girl does not deserve anything but a kick in the ass.
