Laurence Fishburne’s Daughter Montana Sentenced To Two Years Of Probation For Striking An Officer

Laurence Fishburne’s eldest daughter, Montana Fishburne, has been sentenced to 24 months of probation following a 2022 arrest as reported by Us Weekly.

Montana, 32, was arrested in January 2022 by Broward County sheriffs and charged with battery on a law enforcement officer. According to police records in Florida, Montana called 911 about an ex-boyfriend allegedly stalking and threatening her. After police officers arrived on the scene, there was no one home. Per records, Montana allegedly started yelling at cops “that no one helped her” from the sidewalk near the reported address and approached them, with police telling her “multiple times to back up.” According to the police report, she slapped one of the deputies on the side of his head, causing swelling and redness on the officer’s ear.

However, on April 10, she reversed course and entered a no-contest plea. “There is no admission of guilt and no conviction, and the case will be sealed and put in the rearview. And young Ms. Fishburne will be able to move on with her life,” her attorney, Michael Grieco, told the outlet. He noted that her probation will conclude upon the completion of a 13-week anger management course.

Montana has previously been arrested twice. In 2017, she was charged with three misdemeanors for a DUI but released the next day after posting a $2,500 bond. Three years later in 2020, Montana was also arrested for driving under the influence in Florida. She was once again released on bond.

Laurence Fishburne is a father to three children: a son, Langston, and two daughters, Montana and Delilah.

The Matrix star shares his two elder children with his first wife, Hajna O. Moss, while he fathered his youngest child with his ex-wife, Suits actress Gina Torres.

Being in an adult film is not a big deal to me

Fishburne shares an estranged relationship with his daughter, Montana after she decided to enter the adult film industry. 

In an interview with People magazine, Montana stated her decision to enter the adult film industry. She mentioned that she wanted to do p*rn after seeing the response Kim Kardashian’s sex tape received after it was leaked, saying:

Being in an adult film is not a big deal to me. It’s something I always wanted to do. I have always been comfortable in my body and with my sexuality…I am not in p*rn to get into acting. I am in p*rn because I wanted to be in p*rn.”

The actress was eighteen at the time. In the article, she mentioned her parents’ reaction to her decision, saying,=:

“I had already filmed it by the time they knew so I didn’t give them a chance to talk me out of it…so I could pursue what I want to do without being constrained by them. I hear through relatives that he’s upset but I haven’t talked to him directly for him to tell me his feelings.”

She mentioned much later that her father had cut off all contact with her after her entry into the adult entertainment.

“I heard that he’s mad at me, but I haven’t spoken to him yet,” she told TMZ in 2010. “I feel pretty confident that I can work things out with him. 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.”
