What a reprehensible act. She put him on out of love and his best interest.

When it comes to money, who can you trust?

I thought only crack-heads steal from their mama....Poor Sweetie, I'm sure this cuts deep. You want to help people & keep the money in the fam but FUCK that. "Business & family don't mix like two dicks" Biggie

Ex drug dealer addicted to money! He was making to many moves on the show. Just another greedy negro.

Sad, but he raised him. He had to learn these values somewhere. Yeah, sometimes your children won't do right. But these things don't spring from nowhere.

I'm so confused about this. She knew about the restaurant because she was right there with him and what business person let's someone else control the money? This woman is not stupid by a long shot. I find it hard to believe that she let him have control of the money when she knows he's not responsible. He may have forged her name or something ION.

9.20 Since the last season he opened up competing restaurants and used her brand. She's saying she didn't give permission for his personal restaurant and they're taking money from her restaurants.

This can all be for a storyline.

Wait what?! I remember him trying to switch up, and add new items to their menus, but this is crazy. Negro came straight home from prison and was put on. How trifling of him to stiff his mama!

Even on the show, you could tell he was gettin' grand trying to be a business man, and never knew how. I'm not surprised at all.

My opinion: It seems she is selfish to sue her son for trying to go out and make his own way and his own name. Hell, he could've just laid back and lived off of her for the rest of her life. But I would love it if my own son even dared to compete with me in a business venture.

I still won't watch this show but do you still want to be in show business?

Her son is a convict who couldn't get any job other than working for his mom. Rather than playing his position he got greedy.

It depends on how you look at it. Was he competing against his mother out of spite or tryna make a larger brand and bring in more money to keep it flowing. Sad it had to come to this. Family and Business don't mix. Same with money. I use to wish I hit the lottery so I could give money to my family and open up businesses and hire my family Lol I was trippin.

@11:40, you said - "It seems she is selfish to sue her son for trying to go out and make his own way and his own name."

...but if he's using her trademark (name) and stealing her money to do it, how is that making his own way? he basically is already living off her. all of that being said, i do believe this is probably all for storyline. there's no way she didn't know these restaurants were opening with the Sweetie Pie name without her knowing.

Sounds like severe Mommy issues or downright hatred. I used to feel like it was a bad thing that I'm in my 40's with no children---but you folks have at it. I'm good. Lol

Story line? Y'all think every move someone makes is for a story line smh this is not basketball wives!! This is terrible news I've watched since the first season and I love this show and the people on it. I hope this is just a misunderstanding.

Ms. Robbie built that business while Tim was doing hard time in jail, that's HER business. She gave her son a job and let him rule the roost but she's still the owner. She doesn't owe it to her child to let him ruin her businesses or misappropriated money.Hes an only child, and Ms.Robbie is almost 80, he could've waited. This woman lost her first son and grandson to murder so Tim wrong for bringing her greif.

There are really some dumb comments on this topic. Seriously, who would sue their son??? Whether he is trying to change the brand or not, if you don't own shit you don't make moves unless the boss tell you its okay! Damn, its not good to do business with family all the time, money just makes you more of what you already were, if you addicted to money before and getting it illegally, then you damn sure are going to act a fool when it's available legally. His ungrateful, old @&&! Send him back to jail and leave EVERYTHING to your nephew!

Im with 11:35. Ms Robbie was going to leave everything to him anyway. All he had to do was wait. That's really sad though. Now who can she trust to run her business when she no longer can? She may just have to put Janae in that role.

Cosign 1:23pm & 11:35pm, This is terrible. I thought it was strange how he named the Los Angeles restaurant after the grandson without her permission, Ms Robbie found out after the fact. She was probably leaving everything to Tim so why this? Tim's ideas have expanded her brand so he didn't need to do anything underhanded, unless he felt like he wasn't getting what he deserved. She's not a young woman, and this is a lot for her to handle, especially after the murder of her nephew. I really hope that this is somehow a misunderstanding.

Wow, the article says Tim took large sums of money from the Sweeties Pie he manages in MO., and used it open and operate 3 other restaurants. Tim refuses to return the monies.
