“Sweetie Pie’s” Owner Miss Robbie Sues Son Tim Over Trademark Infringement
Lawd! Looks like these reality shows really do ruin the family dynamics. “Welcome To Sweetie Pie’s” stars, Miss Robbie and her son Tim Norman, are the latest reality TV duo to be embroiled in an ugly lawsuit.
Robbie, the owner of Sweetie Pie’s restaurants in the St. Louis area and the driving force behind the OWN show, is suing her son for trademark infringement. The restaurateur filed suit in federal court Monday against Norman, who operates the two Sweetie Pie’s restaurants in the St. Louis area and one in North Hollywood, California.
According to The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Montgomery’s lawsuit accuses Norman of misusing signage and promotional materials for his locations and diverting “substantial sums” of revenue from the Manchester location toward his restaurants.
The suit seeks unspecified damages.
The sixth season of “Welcome To Sweetie Pie’s” wrapped up in January. No word on if this latest turmoil will be featured on a seventh season.
