Tameka ‘Tiny’ Harris Loses Dad To Alzheimer’s Disease

July 12, 2013  |  


For about as long as Tameka “Tiny” Harris has been on reality television, she’s been open about her father, Charles Pope’s struggle with Alzheimer’s disease. We’re sad to report that he succumbed to the disease earlier this week. Charles reportedly passed away in his Atlanta home Thursday at the age of 76.

Just moments ago, Tiny confirmed her father’s passing to fans via her Instagram page and thanked everyone for all of their love, support and prayers.

“Thanks to all my friends & family for coming to see me & praying for me. I really appreciate the Love! Blessings.. #MyGuy,” the founding Xscape member wrote.

Charles was also a member of 1960’s group The Tams.

We send our condolences to the Harris, Cottle and Pope families.
