Ms. Robbie Suing Gossip Blogger for Defamation


Earlier this year rapper Cardi B successfully sued Youtube blogger Tasha K for defamation of character, resulting in a $4 million judgment for Cardi [click here if you missed that]. 

Now Ms. Robbie from 'Welcome to Sweetie Pies' is also suing a Youtube blogger for defamation of character...

The owner of Sweetie Pie’s soul food restaurant accused an Arkansas-based YouTube creator of defamation this week over comments about an alleged murder-for-hire plot involving the family.
Robbie Montgomery, who starred with her family members in the reality TV series “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s,” said in a lawsuit filed Monday that Phyllis Flint and Shanice Coty defamed her by publishing a video in which they accuse her of being involved in criminal activity and promiscuity.
Some of the comments reference Montgomery’s connection to her son, James Timothy Norman, who is charged with orchestrating the fatal shooting of his 21-year-old nephew, Andre Montgomery Jr., who also appeared on the reality show. Charges say Norman hired a woman who was working in Memphis, Tennessee, to help in the March 2016 killing near Fairground Park and then attempted to collect Andre Montgomery’s life insurance benefits.
Most of the defamation allegations center on a video on Fint’s YouTube channel, “Eat with Phylly Phyl Talk Show & More,” titled “SWEETIE PIE’S TIM NORMAN’S FATHER BEST FRIEND WIFE CALLS & GIVES TEA ON THE FAMILY.”
The video, which had nearly a quarter of a million views as of Friday afternoon, features a recorded conversation between Coty and Flint in which the two women accuse Robbie Montgomery of crimes related to her grandson’s death, including murder and being an accessory to murder. They also accuse her of having a “promiscuous and adulterous sex life” during her time as one of the original Ikettes with the Ike and Tina Turner Review, according to the lawsuit.
The video with Coty immediately became Flint’s most popular and resulted in an “exponential increase” in her viewership, the lawsuit states.
The suit says Robbie Montgomery’s reputation has been damaged by the allegations and that the comments were “wanton,” “malicious” and “tended to expose plaintiff to hatred, contempt and/or ridicule.”

I don't know why these bloggers, ain't learned from Tasha K, and Alex Jones. People are not cool with being slandered.

How would they know if she was selling ass as a backup singer? She is old and senile because she doesn’t believe her lovely lady humps son is a murderer of his nephew though. Supporting him is senile but saying she was selling ass and they are not from her era is cause for a lawsuit.

I'm sure she's more concerned about criminal accusations than whether or not she gave it up as an Ikette. A son's daddy best friend wife could have a personal beef or be at an age where they blurt out whatever because they can. Both Tina and ike stated in their respective bios that getting it in with an ikette or band members was part of the scene.

Anything for a dollar or attention. I think the ass selling maybe true but who cares about that.

She's trying to get that money for her son's defense. Notuch to see here.

I follow Philly Phyl and heard the that interview. She made it clear to her audience that she has no control over what callers say, will also say "Allegedly" when necessary. The ONLY time Philly would make a statement as fact is when she is reading court documents, which she posts, and is a matter of public record. She is not doing anything near what Tasha K's foolish, prideful a$$ did.

Ms. Robbie needs to be more concerned as to why her son decided to take out almost a half a million dollars on his nephew only to be killed soon after. Instead of wasting her $ on high power attorneys who will only rip her off because we all know that SOB son did it, she should just be quiet before her skeletons break the door wide open.

Industry old heads did lots of things, like the newbies. They just didn't have the Internet. Whatever she did or may have done obviously didn't kill her and she was able to reinvent herself. There's that.

Where is Charles and the other cousin at? Ms Robbie still believes in Tim's innocence I wonder how the rest kf the family feels.

Charles and the rest of the family may not be as gullible as Ms. Robbie. They could be staying silent as to not anger her. Her support for Tim despite the proof is weird. She’s in heavy denial.

So she pissed cuz somebody that know her personally called her an old ho3. Priorities Ms. Robbie!!

@12:15 I keep asking the same question. I would love to know what Charles and the rest of the family have to say.

Youtube is no different than an unauthorized biographer when they right a book with a ton of salacious information. They all spill lots of tea and most of it is unsubstantiated. If you're a celebrity of elite or D-level, it is your responsibility to set the record straight. Unfortunately, Ms Robbie has decided to set the record straight by hiring an attorney. In any event, she will have to explain herself, as well as Phyllis and everyone else involved. I'm sorry to say, this case will be thrown out and they'll have to refile because Phyllis is the middle man and not responsible for the views or opinions of her callers. If Ms. Robbie really wanted to sue someone, it should be Youtube because they allow malicious gossip like this to go on all the time. Youtube is the vehicle that keeps moving with limited restrictions and they should have a responsibility to manage their content creators.

Charles said on one of his Lives that he will speak about everything but not at this time. They may have to testify and investigators could have probably asked them to not speak to the press or anyone else publicly.

Ella M Nopea said...

Thanks for the updates on Charles. I wasn't aware he said anything. I do remember he took his cousin's death hard. I wouldn't be surprised if Tim had a hit on Charles head too. He treated Charles and the Andre bad. I know Janae is happy she dodged that bullet.

Yes! Janae definitely dodged one.

At this point Robbie gets what she gets. She is way too old to care what somebody found out she did what every other doo boop bitch did.
Just when it was bad enough she is spending her latter days nursing a broken heart at the state of her family and has to support the POS she has left but.. to then spend time tying herself up in BS about some gossiping about it. Fuck it if she likes it great.
Glad its not Jennifer because if money was ever the case. He sure nuff would have no problem going on BBW and fake crying with chicks that would not care what happened to her. Fat hips would go with Jackie anywhere she wanted talking bout he is looking for Jennifer.

Well I guess the loss of of her grandson has lost its value.

This should be thrown out of court immediately. Most of us still don't have a clue who those vloggers are anyway. Insult to injury, the rest of us won't even look them up or that video in question. Sit down Ms. Robbie.
