LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Montana Fishburne (aka Chippy D) is threatening Brian Pumper (aka B Pumper or Bling Man) with a lawsuit over extra footage in the feature film “Phattys Rhymes & Dimes 14″.
Pumper presented the first footage of Montana Fishburne before her recent claim to “fame”. In the hours of late July when news hit that Laurence Fishburne’s daughter Montana Fishburne was heading into another industry path, the first footage (video and images) of Montana was her interview alongside Brian Pumper.
Pumper is a reported 29-year old New York native, a multiple award winning film actor, producer and director has nearly 750 credits since 2001 first profiled on LALATE in July. A 2008 press described him as having “an enthusiastic approach” and “very polished” boasting “strengths as a .. director” as well.
Pumper has his own film company, a successful one at that. But from a young age, Pumper knew he was going to be successful.“Ever since I was a kid, growing up in a tough neighborhood, people tried to keep me down. But, uh uh … I knew I’d be successful.” And yet, while Montana is featured in the alleged footage in dispute, Brian says the following about the type of women he cast in his movies. “I like to work out so I can be in shape for the movies. …. The girl doesn’t have to be a supermodel.”
Montana Fishburne revealed this week her father Laurence Fishburne has allegedly told her that he is out of his life until she turns her own life around. For Brian, he admits he’s religious and says God accepts everyone. “I communicate with God. Even though some people feel [films] and God don’t go together, and that’s not righteous.
“But I don’t look at it like that. I’m making an honest living. I’m not out in the streets harming anyone. I’m having fun with what I do and I’m successful at it. I thank God for his blessings. That’s it. It’s real simple. I thank him for me being healthy, alive and strong and finding a career that I enjoy. I’m really grateful for being in the business. Life couldn’t be any better.”
Montana has said of her career decision “I’m impatient about getting well-known and having more opportunities and this seemed like a great way to get started on it.”
