Isn’t it obvious that children are influenced by their parents? In most cases, we have seen that if someone has a successful father or mother, they want to become like them. But Laurence Fishburne’s daughter Montana Fishburne’s story is a bit different than their own.
Laurence Fishburne is one of the great media personalities in America. He is known as an actor, playwright, producer, screenwriter, and film director. He has two daughters, and the elder one is Montana Fishburne.
She created a lot of controversy in 2010 by appearing in a sex tape from Vivid Entertainment. When she turned 18, she made the decision to join the adult film industry.
And it was like a shock to everyone who admires the top-rated actor Laurence Fishburne. At that time people thought about why Laurence’s daughter joined the adult film industry instead of Hollywood.
In this blog post, we’ll let you know everything about Montana Fishburne, who is the daughter of an A-list actor in Hollywood.
Montana Fishburne and her Career in the Adult Movie Industry:
Montana was born on September 07, 1991. At the age of 16, she started thinking about her career—at that time, Montana decide what she wanted to do in life.
Montana openly told US Weekly at that time, “I had a little passion inside me to do adult movie, I didn’t really want to tell too many people about it because I was afraid of their reactions when I was younger. I started thinking about it…when I was 16.”
In another interview with Reuters, she also mentioned that Kim Kardashian’s sex tape inspired her to get into this profession. Because she has seen how Kim succeed in her career after releasing the tape in 2007 by Vivid Entertainment. She said,
“I’ve been aware of the industry for four years. After I turned 18, I seriously thought about the best way for me to enter (the business). I was impressed with Kim Kardashian’s success after her tape was released by Vivid and decided to call the company to see if I could arrange a meeting. I met with [founder and co-chairman] Steven Hirsch and convinced him that I knew what I wanted, and we planned my movie debut.“
It seems Montana was determined to do adult films. She released sex tapes on the internet and got all the attention she wanted. But her relationship with her Oscar-nominated dad was damaged completely.
However, Montana got arrested in 2009 on the charge of prostitution as a teenager. Later on, she was sentenced to 15 days in jail, but she avoided jail by doing community service.
How was Laurence Fishburne and Montana Fishburne’s relationship damaged by this?
Her father found it shameful that his daughter had chosen to do porn. Montana said her father wasn’t happy with her decision and The Matrix trilogy actor told her, “I’m not going to speak with you till you turn your life around.”
Now you can imagine how disappointed he was in his daughter. But Laurence’s unhappiness couldn’t prevent Montana’s dream. She told E! News, “It’s hard for any dad to see their daughter on tape like that. I understand, but at the same time, I want him to understand that this is my dream.”
Moreover, it was reported that Montana started working in a controversial strip club in Texas, though this hasn’t been proven.
Montana Fishburne and her Relationship with her Father:
Montana will turn 31 soon. It’s been around 11 years since the sex tape incident happened. She isn’t part of the adult industry now. In 2017 Montana again appeared in breaking news after the tape incident. That time she was arrested for a DUI.
In a 2013 interview, Montana admitted that she has reflected on her decision and that maybe she would have done things differently. On February 18, 2018, she posted on Instagram a photo with her father and wrote in the caption,
My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person….HE BELIEVED/S IN ME ❤️
Therefore, we believe the current relationship between the father and daughter is pretty stable.
