Was Kimberly Tripp killed? The Las Vegas performer known for playing Kim Kardashian was found dead on March 20, and police have investigated the mysterious situation. Get the details here.
This is so scary. Just one day after the body of Mini Kim Kardashian (Kimberly Tripp) was discovered by her boyfriend, Ricky Sells Jr., police revealed whether her cause of death involved murder. She was only 32 years old when she passed, so it certainly seemed suspicious that she died so suddenly. Could it have been murder?
Despite the rather strange circumstances of Kimberly’s death, police determined that she passed from health issues and no foul play is suspected, according to TMZ. A source told the outlet that Kimberly had complained to friends she was having significant chest pains the day before her death. Specifics of the health issues are still pending.

While it is a relief to hear that no foul play was involved in Kimberly’s shocking death, it surely doesn’t make things any easier for her loved ones — especially Ricky. He didn’t just play Mini Kim’s love, Mini Kanye West, but he was her love in real life too. The pair lived together in their Las Vegas apartment, which is where he found her body on the porch just after midnight on March 20. According to reports, Kimberly was purple and couldn’t be revived. So sad!
Upon hearing the heartbreaking news of Kimberly’s passing, Kim immediately took to Twitter to express her sadness. “My thoughts and prayers go out to Kim Tripp’s friends and family! Rest in peace beautiful soul,” she tweeted. Mini Kim was known for her hilarious recreations of Kim’s most memorable moments, including Kimye’s wedding and the birth of North West.
Jeff Beacher, founder of Beacher’s Madhouse — where Mini Kim performed — also grieved Kimberly in a sweet statement announcing her death. “The Beacher’s Madhouse family lost one of our founders and original members. She was our shining star,” he wrote. “My prayers and love go out to our team and her family. She will be loved and missed by all.”
