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."

She still has that cute young innocent girlish grin and twinkle in her eyes...too bad as time goes by, and she does more of this type of work, it will disappear. Cant imagine the stmt of her dad being on set...what kind of parent could ever be on the set of their child doing something like this? If thats true, its worse than her doing the video.

Nola, instead of making generalizations and bigoted remarks about black women, maybe you need to stop listening to rappers and watching TV. Most black women do not listen to rap and have black men that adore them. We all are not on welfare and we are educated. And even if we don't have black men, we do not need black men or any kind of men to validate us as valuable members of this racist society. And yes it is whitey's fault if you think we are no better than animals.

This girl has some type of problem with self-esteem. First she is arrested for prostitution last November, now she is in this porno film. She keeps selling her body as if she were some kind of slave. This isn't just a "personal choice". This is some kind of sick.

Some a-hole pervert brainwashed this girl into believing the only way she can make it is with a sextape. And what the hell is with the Kim K comparison? Kim has nothing to do with Hollywood, she isn't an actress. Just like Paris and the Osbourne children, they are nothing more than Socialites that live off their family's fortune. Sextapes DO NOT lead to legit acting gigs. Poor Laurence. He has been a stand up guy that minds his own business and doesn't spout of idiotic political BS like the majority of self-loving Hollywood tools. His daughter is very pretty and could have made it (assuming she has some talent) on her own, with maybe a few doors getting opened for her by her father. I feel very sorry for Laurence. This has to be a nightmare for any dad.

Laurence Fishburne is presently appearing at the Geffen Theater on La Conte Avenue in Westwood, California (down the street from Ralph's store). Recently we observed a (white) fan ask Laurence for his autograph when Fishburne and his bodyguard walked out of the theater to cross the street toward UCLA. Laurence reacted like the worst conceited A-hole you can imagine. Usually I am not moved by behavior like that - but this time, I sincerely felt for that fan. Reading about Laurence Fishburne's disgusting daughter proves that the rotten apple didn't fall from the tree. The Laurence Fishburne family needs to learn from this incident that fame & flash isn't how we are going to judge them. Montana's sexcapade isn't worth wasting one million dollars -- instead, give her a dose of tough love! And, donate just $250,000. of your millions to the $$$ strapped food banks in the Los Angeles area. Instead of twisting over your daughter's disgraceful antics - go volunteer to carry trays of food to shut-in elders. Imagine their joy that Laurence Fishburne showed up at their door to bring them food. You will be blessed for that.

She's a grownup! This is what she wants to do! Meddlesome dad, interfering. Leave her alone! If people weren't such prudes they wouldn't give a fig about so-called "porn" movies. Consenting adults. So what. She's a grown-up!!! It's not his job to control her; she's not breaking the law.

Its one thing to have sex on camera and it accidentally get out. Its another to sit next to a low life male porn star in a restaurant and have him refer to you as a "B!tc#" while your sitting next to him with a dumb grin on your face like she did in that interview. Montana, grow up and get some dignity!

Me thinks Karma has bitten Mr. Fishburne right in the old arse. A short while ago he gave an interview where he bragged about his so-caled "man cave" and how no woman was allowed down there - with the exception of his wife and daughter - only if they asked for permission first. I suspect Fishburne was probably watching more than sports in his man cave. And now countless numbers of anonymous men, for their own lurid pleasures are going to watch his daughter get sexually exploited in the most God awful way - just like I'm sure Fishburne watched other men's daughters for his. It's tragic and perhaps a bit farcical that this world famous actor's daughter is now literally an attention whore. But Montana Fishburne's problems obviously started way before she took her clothes off for money. Daddy isolating himself away from his family may have something to do with it.

#98 AND 102: You may be right. I remember watching a Geraldo show some years ago and Larry's mom was on and she cried about how he wouldn't return her calls or help her financially. She helped him during his youth get acting jobs and now she was forsaken. I also recall that when Fishburne was in Chicago filming a gangster movie, he got a reputation for wanting to be called "Laurence" instead of "Larry." I wouldn't be surprised if he treated his daughter(s) he has two like outcasts or didn't want to be bothered with them. This is his daughter's way of getting back.
