Laurence Fishburne Tried to Purchase Daughter's Adult Film

August 6, 2010

In a desperate bid to stop the distribution of his daughter’s adult film, actor Laurence Fishburne has attempted to purchase every single copy.

Laurence Fishburne is reportedly “very hurt” that his 19-year-old is staring in an x-rated film. Montana Fishburne says she made the decision to star in the self-titled adult film so she could gain fame à la Kim Kardashian but has yet to discuss her new career with her father. Montanna told TMZ, “My dad is very upset. I heard that he's mad at me but I haven't spoken to him yet. I feel pretty confident that I can work things out with him.” Laurence Fishburne is apparently so upset that he tried to quash the release of the film by purchasing every single copy from the company distributing it.

According to TMZ, friends of Fishburne hired Charlie Sheen’s blazing attorney Yale Galanter to try and broker a deal with Vivid Entertainment, the company releasing the film. Galanter reportedly offered the company “a million dollars” to stop the release of the tape. TMZ says Galanter failed to make the deal as “the DVDs had already shipped out.” While Galanter has refused to confirm or deny if he’s been in contact with Vivid, the head of Vivid Entertainment Steven Hirsch confirmed the two had talked. He told TMZ, “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.”
