*You may recall the big news about two years ago regarding Laurence Fishburne‘s daughter, Montana Fishburne, releasing a porn tape with Vivid Video in what was supposed to be her claim to fame.
Well unlike other women who released sex tapes and blew up over night, things didn’t exactly work out in Montana’s favor.
“Vivid told me they would give $125,000 and 25 percent of the back end, all the sales that are made. Basically, you’ll never see the back end after advertisement. You won’t get the money. It’s a very untrustworthy business,” industry insider Jasmine Waltz Fox 411 in an interview. “Lawrence Fishburne’s daughter got burned really, really bad. She got $60,000 dollars and never saw another penny.”
Another industry insider confirmed Waltz’s story, adding: “Montana Fishburne’s tape sold pretty well. That was a completely different time. It was $60,000 up front, but she didn’t get 70 percent of the tape sales.”
Montana was only 18 years old when she made her porno debut with Vivid back in 2010 and is now advising young women to avoid having sex on camera just to make money or become famous.
“I don’t encourage people to go into the porn industry. You’re not going to be famous, or be a movie star. You may end up having a really sucky life,” she said. “If you look at the celebrity sex tape, these girls are not your average girl next door jumping into porn and for the average girl to get into porn and have those results won’t happen. You have to look at where you come from. My idea is go to school and have life experience but don’t just jump into something blindly and have a big pay day. If you’re going to be going into porn, you have to have a very clear head.”
