Montana Fishburne could be in court again soon for something other than prostitution charges or for allegedly assaulting someone with a deadly weapon (not to be conflated). According to TMZ, the now notoriously famous daughter of noted actor Laurence Fishburne has sent several letters to Brian Pumper, noted porn star and adult film producer, demanding that he halt all sales of his sex tape video that features a segment wherein he and Montana Fishburne have sex.
According to the letters obtained by TMZ, Montana Fishburne has threatened to sue Brian Pumper for including extra sex scenes in his video production, “Phattys Rhymes & Dimes 14,” a sex tape that preceded her “first” sex tape video production with Vivid (which is now referred to not as an adult film or feature — as opposed to “sex tape”). Montana Fishburne, through her lawyers, maintains that Brian Pumper included “practice” sex session material on the sex tape. She further maintains that she never signed a release form for the use of the “practice” sex to be included on any sex tape.
TMZ asked Montana Fishburne for clarification, wanting to know why she allowed herself to be videotaped if the sex was just for “practice.” She told the celebrity gossip site that Pumper had offered the “practice” sessions to get her ready for her big debut.
Apparently that big debut was with Vivid, considering that TMZ links the words “her big debut” with the breaking story of her announcement of her sex tape video release with Vivid Entertainment.
TMZ also noted that Brian Pumper has not responded to the letters.
Montana Fishburne has certainly making a name for herself in the past few weeks. Up until July 30, almost no one outside of her immediate circle of friends and family (and possibly a few devoted fans of her father, Laurence Fishburne) even knew who she was. After announcing she was taking the modern route of riding a sex tape video to success, there are very few that do not now recognize her name. And lately, her name is everywhere, especially in gossip tabloids and on the Internet.
Within hours of her joint announcement with Vivid Entertainment, the scandal of a respected actor’s 19-year-old daughter was burning up the radio, television, and Internet. But with it came investigative journalists looking for more, not to mention bloggers and “experts” willing to speculate and prognosticate. It was soon discovered that even though Montana Fishburne was 19, she was no innocent simply entering the porn industry.
CarltonJordan.com, an investigative journalism website that specializes in celebrity dirt, broke the story of Montana Fishburne’s Brian Pumper connection, posting a picture of the cover of the sex tape video, “Phattys Rhymes & Dimes 14,” that was made prior to the Vivid production. Within days, CarltonJordan.com had posted accounts of a friend alleging that Montana Fishburne had been prostituting herself (with the help of her alleged pimp boyfriend, Jerome Greene) for some time and court documents that attested to the wannabe sex star’s arrest on prostitution charges in November. A few days later, EOnline posted another court document from the Los Angeles Superior Court revealing that the teen had also been arrested as recently as February on charges relating to an assault on her boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend.
It would seem that Montana Fishburne has had some practice in the legal arena as well, which might bode ill for the continued production of Brian Pumper’s sex tape video with the rising young porn star. But if Brian Pumper produces a signed release form…
