Very sad news. Andre Montgomery, the grandson of Miss Robbie who stars on OWN’s ‘Welcome to Sweeti Pies‘ has passed. The 21-year-old was shot and killed in St. Louis, and she believes he was set up, TMZ reports.
Reportedly, Andre was found in a house, unconscious with a gunshot wound Monday night and was pronounced dead on the scene.
According to Miss Robbie, the house where her grandson was shot had a recording studio, and he was recording music. She’s been told that during the recording session, Andre got a phone call to meet someone outside. It is said that when he went outside, he was shot.
Apparently, Andre was staying in a hotel and on Tuesday morning someone allegedly used a key to enter the room. Miss Robbie says that Andre’s belongings were missing from the room, but the person who went in was captured on surveillance cameras.
Andre was frequently featured with his family members on ‘Sweetie Pie’ … including his high school graduation in 2013, when Miss Robbie was beaming with pride.
