Actor Laurence Fishburne’s daughter wants to appear before the cameras, too—but she’ll be doing flicks of a different nature.
According to TheGrio.com, Montana Fishburne, 19, announced on July 30 that she will be appearing in a hardcore adult film scheduled to be released later this month.
Fishburne, who now goes by the name “Chippy D,” cited celebrity Kim Kardashian as her inspiration to appear in the adult film. “I’ve watched how successful Kim Kardashian became and I think a lot of it was due to the release of her sex tape.”
Fishburne discussed her confidence backing her decision to appear in adult films in an interview with gossip site CarltonJordan.com.
“I have a lot of at-home experience so I feel very comfortable with the camera,” she said in the interview. “The camera loves me and I love the camera. I know what I do and I do it well.”
The younger Fishburne recently told celebrity news site TMZ that her father is unhappy about her decision to break into the adult film industry. “ is very upset. I heard that he’s mad at me but I haven’t spoken to him yet,” Montana Fishburne said. “I feel pretty confident that I can work things out with him.”
She said she maintained a good relationship with her father and spoke with him on a weekly basis prior to her announcement last week. Fishburne said she never expressed her aspirations to join the adult film industry to him before, and plans to have a sit-down with him soon. “I think he wants to support me in everything I do, and though he sees this now as a negative, I believe in time he will view it as a positive,” she told TMZ.
While her choice may have surprised her father, according to news reports the teen’s life has not been free from controversy. According to spokespersons for the Superior Court of California, the younger Fishburne was arrested November 2009 in Hollywood and later charged with prostitution. She is currently serving two years probation as a result of that charge.
