Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans might have been arrested for assault earlier this week after getting in a white trash brawl with another girl (Brittany Maggard) that was caught on video. But that shouldn’t stop her from treating it like a sex tape by selling it and pretending she’s devastated that it got out. E! News reports:
The Teen Mom 2 star, whose legal troubles seem to be mounting at every turn, exclusively tells E! News that Maggard sold the tape of their fight to the media for $45,000.
Who says there’s such a thing as bad publicity again?
“She told me herself and I got very upset,” Evans said Wednesday. “I cried for two hours.”
Multiple attempts to reach Maggard for comment were unsuccessful, though she told TMZ that Evans not only shared in the cash windfall, but personally made the initial contact to sell the video—though according to her, the payment they received was just $5,000, not $45,000.
When you’re the star of a reality show centered around idiot teenagers from backwoods towns getting knocked up, it’s kind of hard to feign indignity over a video of you rolling around in the mud being viewed by thousands of people. Instead, you should be pointing out the fact you didn’t use your baby as a club because, honestly, that’s impressive. I didn’t think this show actually helped girls like you grow as a person, yet here we are not using children as a weapon. Literally.
