Montana Fishburne's Playboy, Porn Ambitions

Laurence Fishburne's Daughter Posed for a Test Shoot for Playboy


Aug. 26, 2010—

Apparently, Montana Fishburne is passionate about all sorts of porn.

According to, the 19-year-old daughter of Oscar-nominated actor Laurence Fishburne recently posed for a test photo shoot for Playboy magazine.

Fishburne's idol, Kim Kardashian, also posed for Playboy before her sex tape went public and made her a household name. Fishburne has said that she was inspired to get into the porn industry because Kardashian found mainstream success after starting out as a sex tape star.

"I've watched how successful Kim Kardashian became, and I think a lot of it was due to the release of her sex tape," Montana said in a statement through Vivid Entertainment, which is releasing her first porn film. "I'm hoping the same magic will work for me. I'm impatient about getting well-known and having more opportunities, and this seemed like a great way to get started on it."

As Fishburne's career heats up, her relationship with her dad has grown cold. She claims her dad refuses to talk to her.

According to TMZ, the two spoke Aug. 16, and Laurence Fishburne told his daughter, "I'm not going to speak with you till you turn your life around."

"You embarrassed me," he said. "You used your last name. No one uses their real name in porn."

Fishburne has more problems than her dad's opposition to her porn premiere. She's being investigated for allegedly roughing up her boyfriend's ex, according to E! News.

She was arrested in February and accused of breaking into the home of the victim, forcing her into a bathroom and beating her repeatedly. She pleaded not guilty to simple battery and false imprisonment. But prosecutors told E! they're working on additonal charges as well, including assault with a deadly weapon and trespassing.

Fishburne's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, didn't immediately return's requests for comment.

Laurence Fishburne's Friends Buy Up Porn Video

It's no surprise then that Laurence Fishburne is upset by his daughter's decision to appear in a porn video. Nor is it likely that the star of "The Matrix," "What's Love Got to Do With It" and "CSI" will be watching his daughter's small-screen debut.

According to TMZ, the actor's friends tried to block the video's release by buying up all the DVDs. His rep declined to comment.
