Welcome To Sweetie Pie’s Reality Star Tim Norman Blames Murder-For-Hire Arrest On Corrupt Cops

Former reality tv star, Tim Norman is set to appear in federal court in St. Louis on Wednesday (Sept. 7) for the start of his murder trial as the alleged mastermind behind a murder-for-hire plot against his nephew, Andre Montgomery Jr.

Tim Norman, 43, is the son of of Robbie Montgomery, 82, better known as Miss Robbie. Their hit reality show, ‘Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s’, aired for nine season on the Oprah Winfrey Network. Things took a turn for the worst in 2020 when Norman was charged with murder-for-hire and conspiracy to commit murder-for-hire in relation to the death of his nephew, Andre Montgomery Jr., in 2016.

Federal authorities say that Tim Norman paid the gunman, Travell Anthony Hill, 30, and also paid Terica Ellis, 33, a Memphis-based exotic dancer, to lure Andre to his fate. With the help of insurance broker Waiel Yaghnam, 44, Norman took out $450,000 worth of life insurance policies on his nephew. Yaghnam was a former hip-hop producer who previously made chart-topping beats for Nelly but had since become a crooked insurance broker.

Yaghnam, Ellis and Hill have all pleaded guilty to their parts in the alleged conspiracy.

Tim Norman appears to be blaming corrupt police and has woven a conspiracy of his own.

Last summer, a journalist researching a potential podcast about Andre’s murder, wrote Norman a letter while Norman was in St. Genevieve County Jail awaiting trial. The journalist got a five-page letter in return, laying out a theory of the case in which Norman (who refers to himself as a “T.V. dude”) is being targeted by the government because of his participation Black Lives Matter protests following the police killing of Michael Brown.

The letter states in part,

“There were cops on Kim Gardner’s bad cop list after this T.V. dude for years…The Fraternal order has been messing with T.V. dude ever since the Mike Brown stuff…T.V. dude was really out there protesting with a lot of employees. His mom warned him.”

Reportedly, the letter did not provide any evidence supporting this theory of the case.

With motions being filed in federal court last week, additional information has surfaced. According to reports, about a year before Andre’s murder, Robbie’s north-county home was burglarized, with the perpetrator making off with $200,000 in jewelry and cash. The break-in had reportedly become a point of contention between Norman and his nephew Andre.

There were no signs of forced entry, and Robbie told the police only two people knew the security codes: her son Norman and her grandson Andre. Andre Montgomery Jr. spoke to police about the robbery on March 10, 2016, telling authorities that Norman had done it. Less than a week later, Montgomery Jr. was dead.
