Tiny Closes Nail Shop Due to Fire Damages

Published September 17, 2012

Tameka "Tiny" Cottle is living an entrepreneur's headache. The wife of rapper T.I. experienced a destructive fire at her nail salon in Stockbridge, Georgia, and due to damages, is closing the shop down until further notice. The former Xscape member is currently seeking out a new spot to house her business, but has several issues to clean up in the meantime.

According to Tiny's lawyer, the fire that hit Tiny's Nail Bar has caused $50,000 in damages, burning up furniture and other irreplaceable items. The salon was in a strip mall, but thankfully, the fire was contained to just Tiny's shop due to the quick response from firefighters.

The cause of the fire has not been released; however, Tiny hopes to re-open her business in a new location in 30 days. The nail bar is just one of the many business ventures that she and her hip hop husband have taken on, so surely they'll be just fine.
