'Bachelorette' Star Kasey Kahl

My Accusers Just Want

15 Mins of Fame

1/18/2012 6:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kasey Kahl
Former "Bachelorette" star Kasey Kahl is adamant ... the couple he brawled with inside a Fresno nightclub are just a couple of "Jersey Shore" wannabes bent on attaining their 15 minutes of fame.

Kahl's rep has released a NEW statement in the wake of an explosive police report, in which an allegedly intoxicated Kahl is accused of beating up a 25-year-old named Richard Chaney ... and smashing the dude's GF in the face at a Fresno nightclub this weekend.

Team Kahl says ... "As Kasey is in the public eye, it is not unlikely that we would not be surprised if these persons bent on attaining their 15 minutes of fame, while intoxicated and perhaps fueled by jealousy, will antagonize and attack stars such as Kasey in a 'Jersey Shore' type brawl given the opportunity."

He adds, "These persons wanted their 15 minutes, which they received, and now those 15 minutes are over."

"We are confident that Kasey Kahl will be fully exonerated upon completion of a full investigation."

The rep also echos what Kasey told police on the night of the incident ... that any violence on Kasey's part was PURELY in self-defense.

TMZ broke the story ... the accusers told cops Kasey was acting like a drunk a-hole and beat up Chaney for no reason. Kahl was arrested for drunk and disorderly conduct.

Kahl originally told cops he wanted to press charges. We'll see if he follows through.

This delusional idiot thinks he is a STAR?!?!? Ahahahaah! Is he not completely self-UNaware that he doesn't realize he's working is OWN "15 minutes"? This guy is a tool! He was a joke on the Bachelorette, he was a joke on the Bachelor Pad, and he's a joke now. AND he hits women. Way to go, loser. Dear "Team Kahl", your client is Z list at best, not a star, not a celebrity, and not in the public eye except as a joke.

This guy is such a dork. He is a small town nerd who made himself look so bad by singing his "love song" to Ali and got the worst tattoo on his wrist - just like a girl. I thought he got in trouble with his trashy tranny looking ex-gf when drunk too.

I highly doubt Renee would have instigate a fight or her friends seeing as how I went to school with the majority of them in Kerman. Another friend of mine met Kahl a week or so ago and didn't have a clue who this dork was until he was told by the security guards. WHO HAS SECURITY GUARDS AT A CLUB IN WHEN THEY ARE LARGELY UNKNOWN?!?! Fricking loser.

People like Kasey need to take a hard look at themselves... cuz those comments sounds an awful lot like it was for him. Sorry Kasey, but u totally dissed yourself by acting like a total drunken jerk. I'm surprised you don't see how embarrassing you look to the public eye.
