Montana Fishburne Faked Suicide Attempt

1/24/2011 8:29 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Montana Fishburne faked a suicide attempt and it was all caught on video ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us that last August, Montana's dad, Laurence Fishburne, was so concerned about his daughter's well-being that he had a private investigator follow her around. The investigator shot video of Montana drinking what appeared to be bleach.

Turns out, Montana faked the whole thing. Sources say she found out a P.I. was videotaping her and drank the bleach "to put on a show."

The tape has become relevant in the ongoing criminal assault case against Montana because her lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, had sent the tape to the prosecutor to demonstrate her client's troubled mental state and help get a plea deal that involved rehab, not jail time. The prosecutor agreed to the deal, but has since disavowed it and wants her to do jail time.

The prosecutor argues in legal papers, obtained by TMZ, that the video "was just a ploy by the defendant to manipulate the People to offer a more lenient sentence."

But we've learned, shortly after sending the video to the prosecutor, Holley learned it was fake and actually notified the prosecutor everyone had been duped by it.

Holley is asking the judge to enforce the original deal -- rehab and no jail.  The prosecutor is steadfast and does not want to honor that deal.

Most children are a disappointment to there parents...
If this girl was my daughter, i would have nothing to do with her, she would die of Aids or go to prison and fall of the map, pretty quickly...

My advice to Mr. Fishburne is to just let her hit the wall. She has to bottom out. She is acting out and it's paying off for her because everybody is paying attention to her including the press. Her parents need to let her hit her bottom. Stop enabling her and let her suffer the consequences of HER choices. She would not keep running to me expecting me to bail her out. Let her fall.

This girl is obviously in need of some attention. Wanting to be in porn should have been the first sign... joking about drinking bleach is another big one. Not to criticize Laurence Fishburne, but was he around a lot when she was growing up?

Well at least she drank the bleach instead of putting it on her skin. That makes her more well-adjusted than most members of the Jackson family.

I don't have any kids, but I imagine it's gotta suck for her dad. Maybe this is her way of showing she's all grown up (sheesh).
