Kimberly Tripp, a Las Vegas performer who was known as “Mini Kim Kardashian,” was found dead late Sunday outside her home, TMZ reported. The 32-year-old entertained crowds at Beacher's Madhouse at the MGM in Las Vegas and the Hollywood Roosevelt in Los Angeles.
Tripp’s body was found by her boyfriend Ricky Sells Jr., who performed along with her at shows. Sells was popularly known as “Mini Kanye West.” The cause of her death remains unclear, TMZ reported.
“Today is a sad day,” Jeff Beacher, founder of the performance theater, told Us Weekly. “The Beacher’s Madhouse family lost one of our founders and original members. She was our shining star. My prayers and love go out to our team and her family. She will be loved and missed by all.”
Beacher told TMZ that Tripp appeared to be in good health as recently as Saturday.
Tripp had pretended to give birth shortly after reality TV star Kim Kardashian welcomed her first child, daughter North West, in 2013. She and her boyfriend had also reportedly performed a fake wedding in May 2014, when the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star got married to the “Famous” rapper.
