'Welcome to Sweetie Pie's Miss Robbie Montgomery stuns in red jacket in pic with 2 grandsons
Now that her reality TV show "Welcome to Sweetie Pie's” came to its final season, Robbie Montgomery has been spending more time with her grandchildren whenever she’s not managing her restaurants.
Montogomery, who was a background singer for Ike & Tina Turner as a member of The Ikettes, has earned popularity in the entertainment industry thanks to the reality show that followed her family and their businesses for the last seven years.
The mother of two and recently shared a photo with her two youngest grandsons, Tim Norman’s son, as she cuddled with them at a birthday party.
In the pic, she’s rocking a vibrant red jacket and a Gucci cap of the same color, as she holds both kids on her lap. Her grandson TJ, who was celebrating his 7th birthday, is smiling brightly to the camera while his little brother, AJ, was peacefully sleeping while cuddled up to Miss Robbie.
Even though Robbie has nothing but love for the boys, the situation with their father has been rockier. The reality star made it to the headlines last year when she sued her son Tim, for stealing money and misusing her trademarks.
According to the Biz Journals, Tim withdrew money from Sweetie Pie’s to open competing restaurants in North Hollywood, California; Berkeley and Florissant, a suburb of St. Louis. He also refused to return the money.
Montgomery filed lawsuits in the Eastern District of Missouri after she found out that her son was misappropriating her restaurant's funds and name. Sweetie Pie's In The Grove has since then closed down.
According to the lawsuit filed, Norman violated Sweetie Pie's trademarks, registered with the U.S. Patent and Trademarks Office since 2006, when he decided to name his new business adventures with the same name even though his mother was not involved in the venture.
There are only two "authorized" Sweetie Pie's locations. The first one, in Dellwood, was opened in 1996, when Miss Robbie decided to enter the restauranteur business.
After gaining some popularity with her delicious food and her background story, her family life was turned into a reality TV show and was widely popular in the United States until the end of its last season that premiered earlier this year.
MISS ROBBIE'S TRAGIC LOSS
Now, Montgomery has been taking time to spend with her family despite all the issues that have transpired between them, after learning the hard way two years ago that people can be up and gone any minute.
In 2016, the Montgomery family suffered a terrible loss when Robbie’s eldest grandson, Andre Montgomery, was tragically shot to death by an unknown person.
According to the Daily Mail, St Louis police found Andre Montgomery dead at a home that had a recording studio where he was working on a rap. Miss Robbie told TMZ that her grandson received a call to meet someone outside the studio, and once he stepped out he was shot.
She added that there was a lead in the case because a man used Andre’s key to enter his hotel room and stole some of his belongings. The man was captured on surveillance cameras. As of now, is not clear if Miss Robbie and his family got the justice they were seeking for Andre's death.
