Laurence Fishburne’s Daughter Shared Why She Starred In Adult Films & How Dad Felt About It
Who remembers when Laurence Fishburne’s daughter, Montana Fishburne, decided to star in a XXX-rated adult film? The year was 2010, and she was barely legal at 18 years of age. Laurence allegedly went through hell and high water to stop his lil’ girls’ sex tape from seeing the light of day. His friends pitched in and tried to buy up all of Montana’s porn videos for $1million before anyone else had the chance too, but it was too late the DVDs were already shipped out to stores.
Montana Fishburne eventually faked a suicide attempt to scare her father. After her movie’s release, Laurence hired a private investigator to follow his daughter because he was concerned for her well being. When Montana found out, she staged a suicide attempt while the private investigator was watching her, to spook her Dad. She pretended to drink bleach.
The acting legend’s now 29 year old daughter actually wanted her movie to be distributed to as many stores as possible…until a few years later that is, but first let’s backtrack and check out what Montana’s state of mind was back then.
In 2011 Montana said the following to Huffington Post…
On her relationship with her father since the tape was released:
Montana Fishburne- “I did talk to my father. He told me he was embarrassed by me. My mom just says, ‘I love you.’ We don’t talk about it every day. She wants me to be happy and doesn’t want me to get dragged into the dark side of porn.”
On other offers she has received:
M.F.- “I can’t be specific, but they are acting roles. I’m open to scripted and reality. It just all depends on what the project it is. If something truly interests me, I’ll get super involved and want to make it happen. That’s why I did this movie.”
On how she expects the sex tape to affect her career:
M.F.- “Kim Kardashian’s sex tape was released, but she still got past that. Even though she got all that negative attention for it, she still has all these other ventures going on now. That is what I want to emulate: having a tape come out and still being seen as a positive person. Not just, ‘She’s a porn star.'”
According to Inquisitr, Montana thought that her Pops would eventually see the good in her decision about porn, but that never happened and at that time, Montana reportedly stated that she was no longer “welcome in his life.” However, thankfully, a few years after her adult film released, Montana shared photos of she and Laurence Fishburne happily reunited.
If Fishburne’s daughter starred in adult films simply because she loves the art of sexual expression, that would’ve been great, but striving to be Kim Kardashian only got her 5 minutes of fame and caused embarrassment to her Father.
Listen, we’ve all done things in our younger years that we regret, and we learned from them, but the next time Montana gets a big bright idea, her Momma or Daddy needs to regress back to the Old School days and knock some since into her head. For my sensitive folks out there who think it’s wrong to give your child an old fashioned butt whipping, don’t panic, I was only kidding.
