Laurence Fishburne Foots Montana's Legal Bill

8/24/2010 5:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Laurence Fishburne is secretly funding his daughter Montana's legal defense ... sources tell TMZ.

Montana Fishburne
TMZ broke the story ... Montana Fishburne claimed daddy Laurence wanted nothing to do with her after she decided to enter the world of porn.

But now we're told ... It was Laurence who hired Montana's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, to represent her in an ongoing assault with a deadly weapon case ... in an attempt to help her out and get her life back on track. We contacted Holley -- she refused to comment.

Our sources say Laurence continues to foot the bill for Montana's defense. 

So, Montana, who loves ya?

My dad would have NEVER fotted the bill. EVER. He would have written me off and that would have been that. Its nice to see that he does love his kid. Now, Montana, get yer ****z straight and see what you are doing to your family. Be glad he loves you. Mine sure didnt. Lucky girl and doesn't even know it.

I've seen her video. Its nasty, she's nasty, her parts are covered with sores and scars and there is nothing that would make me pay to see it - if it wasn't already out there for free.

@carol"And how is bailing her out of trouble going to help her the next time she gets in a jam. What is she learning from her actions? NADA - Nothing if other people are going to bail her out."

I think you are mistaking Laurence paying her legal bills with "bailing her out". Nothing of the sort is happening! She needs representation in court and good representation so she can get the help she needs. As a black prostitute and a battery case, she could end up serving years and years in jail! She is too young and she needs to learn her lesson and pay for her mistakes and the judge will make sure of that, but it he is being a good dad by not just letting her "rot". He clearly loves her and she is NOT being bailed out.

My two cents ;)    

He probably had a contract with the most scheming slithering evil attorney today SCH..Actually if she was a villain she would be the enabler...All of the whores and idiots she represents get off...Karma SCH maybe when she is at lilos funeral she'll figure it out..Maybe I should have not taken her recovery as a paycheck

Man, I had completely forgotten about Cadence. I remember liking it but don't remember that much about it anymore. Will have to look for it on Amazon since video stores likely won't have it...I remember Charlie's older brother Ramon Estevez was in it, too...

He was good in "Bobby", too. Emilio Estevez' movie about Bobby Kennedy. Martin Sheen in that one, also...he must be close with their family, I guess friendship made from Apocalypse Now stood the test of time which is good.

Just wondering ... who would want to watch this chick in porno, anyway? She looks exactly like her father and he's not even an attractive guy.

Yeah you're right about that, he couldn't deny she was his even if he wanted to. And like, waaaay back in the day if I happened to stumble across a little porn, I don't really recall that I looked at a dude's face too much. I'm just sayin', perhaps it's different for men though, I don't know.

You went there... if Toker really meant NI66ER TMZ don't you think they would have put that...that's the level you dropped toy putting "Honky TMZ" if not worse now do you feel better. It was a joke A§§... don't your people have a magazine called Ebony? Do you take offense to that? Jeez think before you type. Your people are full of double standards. Do you ever hear white people call each other "Honky" probably not but you hear blacks call each other NI66ER all the time. Looks to me your people prefer it. So apparently your people would rather white people use NI66ER wait then you would really have your panties in a wad and want to get your boyz and put the beat down on someone. Whatever your comment is full of Fail. Butt-hurt Bastard.

@Vincent and @Midnight Toker...You just proved the point that you are racist idiots. Why is it necessary to say move it over to Ebony??? Yes there are Black magazines but Laurence Fishburne is a mainstream actor so why can't the story be reported here?? Why is that even necessary??

And why is it necessary to take to a even sleazier level by using the word Ni66er?? And gotta love the "you people"...

Anyway, not all Blacks use the ni99er...but I guess you live in some lily white town where the only blacks you see are on MTV or BET and you believe that they "ooohhh they must represent a WHOLE RACE of people" I'm sure the same way David Duke must represent all whites??? No??

Maybe you should be a little less ignorant and close minded and realize that just like any other PEOPLE Blacks are INDIVIDUALS. We're not some other species that need to be grouped together under "hip hop".

You ignorant turd...

Aah, you see Montana WAS just using daddy not talking to her to get p.r for her porn film.
Laurence Fishburne has worked his ass off and is a highly credited and highly thought of actor - if his daughter had had one ounce of consideration for him she would have used one of these made up names for her porn film, she didn't want to do that because she thought it would pave her way into mainstream acting and make her an A lister!! Never going to happen and in the bargain her father's name has been dragged through the media so EVERYONE knows who her father is!!
So he's footing her legal bill for a prior incident or whatever, so what, he wants her to clean her act up and get her life together before she ends up wrecking it!! So he doesn't want to talk to her, neither would I lol, if he didn't love her he would have withdrawn his funds for her legal team hm?! You love your kids no matter what they do to hurt you, or betray you, love doesn't come with conditions but sometimes tough love needs to be applied no matter how much it hurts you to do it hm?!
#32 NYC I agree with you 100% and just so you know I'm white, not that it matters hm?! It shouldn't matter if someone is green with pink polka dots on, there is no lily white neighbourhood here and I have no problems. You can't be blind to what goes on around you though hm?! I don't know if you agree, but I always thought that the US calling out South Africa on apartheid (whilst good) was the height of hypocrisy for a country that until the late 50's early 60's segregated blacks from whites in schools, restaurants, on buses and in living areas hm?! Man is not defined by the color of his skin, nor does the color of a man's skin make him who he is hm?!

Montana Fishburn, understand that you will never make the impact that your father did because some people are lucky and some aren't. You are like countless other kids who will never shine as much as their parents did. LIVE WITH IT.

This whole porn thing is ruining your family and yourself. Years from now, this will be your greatest regret. Think about what you're doing and the situation you're in, don't make it worse.
