Robbie Montgomery is speaking out for the first time following the murder plot controversy impacting her son, Tim Norman.
We previously reported, Robbie and her son/business partner James Timothy “Tim” Norman had a huge falling out several years ago and they’ve been estranged ever since.
To make the situation even worse between them, Norman was arrested over the summer for an alleged murder-for-hire plot involving his nephew Andre Montgomery, and Miss Robbie’s grandson.
Norman was busted by feds for his alleged role in the 2016 shooting death of Andre after taking out a $450k life insurance policy on his nephew back in 2014. The Feds says he worked with a Memphis-based woman named Terica Ellis to allegedly pull off the murder.
Robbie has been quite on social media since news broke, but she recently made time to share a message to family, friends and fans for their love and support.
“I truly appreciate all the love, prayers, cards, calls, and messages, of support my family and I have received from you all,” she wrote in the caption of a photo of her making a heart with her hands. “May God bless you all.”
As reported by MadameNoire, a friend of the family, journalist April Simpson, recently shared a text message she received from Miss Robbie
“Understandingly, she is not ready to talk and just wants prayers,” Simpson said on Facebook. “In a text to me she wrote quote: ‘Thanks For The Prayers, But At This Time I’m Weak And Can’t Make A Statement. Please Keep Praying For Me And My Son.’”
Robbie and her son starred on the hit OWN series “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s,” and in a 2016 episode, he took her to their old neighborhood where Andre lost his life.
