Montana Fishburne

Dad's Pals

Tried to Block Porn

8/6/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Laurence Fishburne's friends tried to do him and his family a solid by buying up all of daughter Montana Fishburne's porn DVDs for a million dollars ... and they hired famed attorney Yale Galanter to make the offer to Vivid Entertainment.

Sources tell TMZ, Galanter -- fresh off his Charlie Sheen victory -- reached out to Vivid honcho Steve Hirsch with the million dollar deal. But, we're told, at the time Galanter reached Hirsch ... the DVDs had already shipped out.

Galanter would neither confirm nor deny the story to TMZ.

When we contacted Hirsch he said, "It's true that we had several conversations with Mr. Galanter. We would have stopped shipment but it was too late. We continue to have the utmost respect for all involved."

Poor guy, that's terrible. You raise this ungrateful brat, and then still try to save her after a stint like this....

I guess she is finally getting all the attention she always craved. Poor Larry.

Mr Fishburne? You've heard your friends say it... ao I'll say it again.

There is nothing you can do. This situation is nothing more or nothing less than any of us parents are dealing with in the year 2010.

No matter how our daughters were raised - virtually all of them are out-of-control animals who are controlled by forces beyond our comprehension. Our daughters now make day to day decisions based on what has been posted on facebook in the past few hours.

Wash your hads and walk away today.

Why, you ask???

Because sooner or later you will wash you hands and walk away anyway.

Trust me.

You will.

Good luck.

I feel for the family.. You would hope that coming from a family of a guy like that, that she would atleast respect her dad. It is unfortunate and i pray and i hope that things will work out the best for all of them. Its a shame that she had to humilate her dad like that. My prayers and taughts are with u the fishburne family

I actually feel bad for Laurence. While I'm personally not a father myself, I can understand him wanting to put a stop to his little girl doing all this. It will be interesting to hear her do an interview ten years from now talking about "the mistakes that she made when she was younger", like we've never heard that story before. The problem for Mr. Fishburne is, though, we now live in the online age (and it's highly unlikely that's going to stop anytime soon). No matter how much money he spends to confiscate as much as posiible, the reality is, since it was already "filmed", it's now out there forever.

Vivid Entertainment SUCKS!! They are always launching videos of stars who don't want them out and selling vids of girls too young to make a decision that will ruin their life. 18 is WAY too young to allow girls in videos such as this...and you can't drink until 21? The girl has screwed up big time and I feel bad for her family and every other family member that the porn industry hurts. I'm not a religious freak or anything but I don't watch porn because the girls on the shows have a mother and father and they could be my daughter and for me to watch it is not right. It disrespects the girls and their families. I wish L Fishburne could sue the hound out of Vivid but I'm sure the daughter signed something and it's all legit but Vivid shouldn't be able to release videos of people who don't want them released. Like I said...they SUCK but what do you expect out of a company that makes videos like that in the first place.

Lawrence, don't waste your money. This is a lesson Montana will have to learn, the hard way. The damage is done. If you had successfully bought the copies, someone would have leaked the tapes to the net anyway, and you will have blown 1 million dollars for naught. Your daughter would have done more such work elsewhere, no matter what. You need to cut her out of your life. She isn't an innocent here, this was a calculated and evil/cruel move on her part. She will only continue to act similarly if you come to the rescue here. Be smart and distance yourself from this, and from her, or she will only give you more trouble at the expense of your other children and wife.

Any woman who aspires to be a porn star, when she has the means to do otherwise is beyond saving. I don't blame Larry at all for Montana's choices. I still respect him as an actor and good guy.

see, there are honorable men, who are willing to save another mans daughter from disgrace and from disgracing her family,
polar opposites of the creeps of mankind who produce porn and thus gladly make on-camera prostitutes out of other mens daughters

i want to cry

because i'm so happy not all men are creeps

Are you sure?    

This story sounds like another press release from Vivid! They like to make up stories of tapes being stolen or some how released with out permission!

She's not expressing herself in a natural way.

She's a dumb slut. At least Porn stars say that they go into porn cause they love sex. This who-ah just wants to do it to make a name for herself, since she can't do it any other way. She said it herself. How sad.

I wonder what her mother thinks about this.

Daddy should have spent more time raises his daughter. Porn? How stupid can you get. I'm sure "I was molested" is next. Crying out for help on def ears.
