More Woes for Montana Fishburne, Family
You really have to feel for Laurence Fishburne these days. For the past couple of weeks, the Matrix actor's teenage daughter Montana Fishburne—professional name: Chippy D—has been publicly trumpeting her budding career as an adult-film actress. And now, TMZ reports, it turns out that his spawn also has some pretty hefty criminal charges hanging over her head.
Montana was arrested last February after allegedly bursting into the home of her then-boyfriend's ex, forcing her into the bathroom, and beating her until the unnamed victim sustained "significant injuries." Now the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office, which has already charged Fishburne with battery, plans to add charges of false imprisonment and assault with a deadly weapon. (The boyfriend, Jerome Green, was also charged in the incident, and pleaded no contest to domestic battery.)
Compounding Fishburne's legal woes is another arrest last November for alleged prostitution. The budding porn actress pleaded guilty to criminal trespass and was given probation—which she could be found in violation of due to these latest charges.
Meanwhile, Montana's XXX debut, with venerated porn woodsman Brian Pumper, is due for imminent release by Vivid Entertainment.
Forget the blue pill or red pill—ol' Morpheus could probably use something a little stronger right now.
