At 80, soul singer Robbie Montgomery is as captivating as she was in her youth. The singing legend shared a picture of herself at 22, which left her fans stunned.
After nearly six decades in the entertainment industry, "Sweetie Pie's" star Robbie Montgomery is still an epitome of grace, charisma, and beauty.
In a new post shared on Instagram, the 80-year-old stunned her fans with a comparison between her looks at 22 and how she looks at eighty. She tagged the first picture as "how it started" while describing the second snap as "how it's coming."
SPOT THE DIFFERENCE
The comparison photo featured a black and white shot of the soul star, looking young and beautiful in tiny-strapped attire. The second shot was of a much older Montgomery, striking the same pose in a pink background. She accompanied the post with a summary of both pictures, writing:
"Age 22 vs. Age 80."
In the first picture, the restaurateur's blown-out hair accentuated her facial features, enhanced with a full makeover which gave her an overall aura of perfection. In the second, she donned a white, long-sleeved jacket, complemented by her gold bracelet and necklace.
The comparison post left fans in awe of the "Sweetie Pie's" star's ageless beauty, with most taking to the comment section to express their amusement. One fan noted that the singer looked more glamorous at eighty, while another referred to her as an ageless angel.
Rather than dwell on her grief, she utilized the pain of losing a son as a motivation to set up her restaurant.
More comments kept pouring in, all singing praise of Montgomery's beauty and how fantastic she looked. One commenter pointed out that the icon's look was in no way a reflection of the travails she's been through so far.
STUCK IN DIFFICULT TIMES
Considering the icon's optimism and ever-cheerful nature, one would never expect there were so many troubles going on in her life. Since losing her grandson, Andre Montgomery, in a shoot-out, the family became a minefield of hard times.
First was the ordeal of dealing with the grief of losing a loved one, then the soul singer's theory that the shooting was a set-up to kill the lad. The troubles became worse in August, when Montgomery's son, Tim Norman, turned out to be a suspect in Andre's death.
Police arrested him on allegations of hiring someone to murder his nephew. The news plunged the singer deeper in her grief, leaving her too "weak" to address the situation.
THE SHOOTING IN ST. LOUIS
The shooting which claimed Andre's life happened back in 2016 on the 3900 blocks of Natural Bridge, north St. Louis. Reports showed that the victim was in a recording studio composing a rap track when he received a call to step outside at about 8 p.m.
As soon as he did, he was shot and died at the scene, while his assailants fled successfully. Coincidentally, Andre's dad, who was Montgomery's eldest son, died in an almost similar way in a Gangland attack in 1997.
The experience, which the soul star believed was "the worst thing that could happen," left her in so much pain for years. However, rather than dwell on her grief, she utilized the pain of losing a son as a motivation to set up her restaurant.
Through the same driving force, she grew the restaurant into an empire, with help from her now-incarcerated son, Norman.
