Tim Norman and his family stared in the popular OWN reality show “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s. ” The show ran from 2011-2018 with 100 episodes.
The show focused on the popular St. Louis soul-food business, Sweetie Pie’s, founded by Robbie Montgomery and her family. In the 1960’s, Robbie was a background singer for Ike and Tina Turner. In addition to Robbie, the restaurant was staffed by her family including her son James “Tim” Norman.
In 2016, Robbie’s grandson Andre Montgomery (Norman’s nephew) was murdered.
The Cinemaholic reported on Andre’s murder. “The police reported that Andre was found in a house with a gunshot wound, and was unconscious. He was pronounced dead on the scene. Robbie said that her grandson was in a recording studio, working on his rap skills when he got a call and went outside. The location of the studio was in the 3900 block of Natural Bridge in North St. Louis. She also stated that Andre was staying in a hotel and that someone had entered his room and stolen his personal belongings.”
Tim Norman and Andre were often seen together on the show.
On Friday, Tim Norman was found guilty of multiple charges for conspiring to kill his nephew Andre Montgomery.
