Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s’ reality star Tim Norman has responded to the lawsuit his mother, Robbie Montgomery, hit him with last week. The two are entangled in a lawsuit over trademark infringement and misappropriation of funds after he opened an eatery called TJ’s Sweetie Pie’s NOHO.
In the lawsuit, Ms. Robbie claims “the fact Defendant Norman is identified as a member of Miss Robbie’s family on the Sweetie Pie’s Show, along with his position on the Show, further increases the potential of causing confusion in the market place,” reports The Grio. Ms. Robbie’s suit also claims TJ is damaging her brand because of bad eatery reviews in addition to stealing money from the Montgomery, AL restaurant location.
Norman says that outsiders are “manipulating” his mother and that he wants to keep his family and family business together. He told the website TheYBF.com his side of the story.
“In this turn of events, unfortunately, outsiders appear to be misguiding and manipulating my mother to sell our family business,” said Norman. “It’s complicated, to say the least, as we have joint interest in various facets of the Sweetie Pies brand. I have to stay true to our brand and our business and I truly hope this disagreement can be settled between my mother and me.
