Yesterday (July 11), Tameka “Tiny” Harris lost her father, Charles Pope, to Alzheimer disease. The only surviving original member of The Tams passed away at age 76 in his Atlanta, GA home.
According to The Jasmine Brand, T.I.’s wife left a distraught note on her Facebook page addressing the sad news.
“Today I lost my father and right now I’m heart broken and I’m sad I’m crying because my father was my everything I was his everything. I never thought I would lost him this soon…he was the best father, he did everything he could for me and he never let me down,” said the former Xscape member.
Pope and Tiny’s close relationship was also documented on multiple episodes of The Family Hustle. He is survived by wife Dianne Pope and children Albert “Little Redd” Cottle and Michelle Pope.
We send our love and prayers to Tiny’s family during this difficult time.
