-- what is back in session on the docket today at teen mom -- and we warn you this is disturbing.
Janelle evidence is the one here in the short stint I was the first punch she's a reality TV star -- MTV and I expect to -- before but when he.
She was caught on tape pummeling her supposedly friend.
Brittany -- -- was also a teen mom although not officially part of the show true it's.
Says she is now planning to sue.
Along with another girl literally pushed Janelle -- Into this fight to begin with especially that part of the tape.
Now however Janelle Evans the one doing all the beating right here.
Her lawyer says this was all a set up.
And that the victim in this case he alleged victim has been eyeing a payday since -- the right.
Joining us now on where the legal rights stands.
Our panel -- attorneys mark -- -- and David Wolf are right panel so but up next I just want our viewers know that the girl.
In the shorts Janelle that's teen mom has been charged the girl in the genes that's Britney true -- the victim she's been charged.
The girl who was also named Brittany who shoved -- Janelle.
Into the -- to begin with.
She's also been charged.
And now there are questions about whether the whole thing was a set up.
Mark -- of the legal rights stance.
What a mess Megan all right there's criminal.
And then there's civil.
Whoever throws the first punch.
It was not an act of self defense in this case she's guilty and that's actually not Janelle -- that's clearly she did -- and mom.
No question in fact you could see the victim on the screen we're calling it the victim and non teen mom holding -- hands out -- palms are like this at the time the first punch is thrown.
No question she was properly charge of battery and we see it don't you hate to the -- -- -- that -- mark -- that got -- By now on the civil arena where -- she's trying to recover for damages for money put.
As little breaking news piece I think she's got a good civil case if she set this up evict.
So any money that she's the victim and and money that she makes should absolutely be offset by the fact that she played a role in trying to videotape that.
I was -- just watch that as the -- That girls also been charged in this what you're learning is also -- she's been charged because daily instigated.
-- Janelle team -- the shorts.
To go start the -- and there's the Britney -- now threatening to sue who really took a beating down your David.
I got to ask you this how does this girl in the genes.
-- How on earth does does she get charged she's clearly the victim.
Well I don't know Megan there's some indication that this may have been instigated that -- dated teen mom's boyfriend who dropped out of high school and that sort of instigated the fight.
And if so if she staged this thing it was some sort of conspiracy.
Then she could be charged with conspiracy.
To state to fight conspiracy to provide false information to the law enforcement officers who investigated this -- she'd like -- they are gonna get herself a beat down.
Well the lawsuit lying in wait at least that's what teen mom claims this is initially an attempt to stage this thing so she could get pummeled as dumb as that sounds.
And then cash and with the civil lawsuit so.
That isn't out of the ordinary make it with this YouTube generation of staging these extreme fights.
And then targeting -- -- cashing in on and it's created this whole industry if you wealth and sort of -- not beyond the pale to imagine.
That happened go -- mark.
It's a bit at the wrong charge if she was also -- a major started battery yet -- was also -- -- -- metal assault.
Yet that is absolutely not the right charge.
First of all it at worst it would be disorderly conduct because.
Otherwise it's it's what it is it is and I'm sad it's self defense what what will want -- -- -- I'm getting -- -- -- of what I'm getting in the mind of law enforcement.
And and it would be mutual combat so at worst it wouldn't be a crime.
But it just doesn't make any sense -- accurate.
And it is its regular you know today's -- let's get to today's breaking news broken AT&T they now say that.
The girl who pushed.
The team up to start fighting in the first place.
Sold the video.
Freddie place between 5045000.
Dollars depending on the reports.
And that -- now teen mom doing the beating right here that in the shorts.
One and a bigger cut that she got a cut of it seems that you wouldn't be getting any money by weren't famous and -- a question about whether if there was set up.
It was all set up by it by the agree or not by the victim at all.
You know what that right there wouldn't be -- conspiracy provide false information to law enforcement.
Because it sounds like then if that is the case this whole thing was staged -- cash and and that everybody -- -- that it could be charged -- that would flip -- the entire criminal case.
I look at it there's no self defense here by the way if someone initiates the fight.
Sort of stages it through their own actions dating sort of antagonizing someone to create the fight.
And that pretends to be victim.
I'm -- I wanted to -- antagonistic towards it's another great -- -- I gotta go guys thank you.
Right at one final words -- You have a -- -- face any charges it was clearly self defense I do see evidence that the aggressor teen mom should be charged I think she's a lot of trouble.
As is the girl who literally pushed her.
Into the fight will be -- back.
