The mystery behind the unexpected death of Kimberly Tripp, the Las Vegas performer known as ‘Mini Kim Kardashian,’ has been solved. After a thorough investigation, the coroner has revealed what tragically ended Kimberly’s life.
She was born Kimberly Tripp, but before she was found dead outside her apartment, the Las Vegas starlet was known as Mini Kim Kardashian. At just 32-years-old, Kimberly’s life ended far too soon, but authorities now know exactly what killed her.
Kim’s body was discovered March 20, and the Clark Country coroner has determined that Mini Kim Kardashian died from chronic alcohol abuse, according to TMZ. While no further details are currently available, it seems that Kimberly’s young life was cut short due to drinking. How sad.
Soon after she was found dead, the authorities reportedly launched an investigation into why such a young woman died so suddenly. Their initial report determined that Mini-Kim died from health issues and was not murdered. The coroner’s final reported confirmed this, saying there was no foul play involved.
Mini Kim worked at Beacher’s Madhouse, opposite her boyfriend, Ricky Sell Jr., who played Mini Kanye West. It was Ricky who discovered his love’s body, though his sadness was shared by all those who knew her. “She was our shining star,” Jeff Beacher, founder of Beacher’s Madhouse, said in a statement. “My prayers and love go out to our team and her family. She will be loved and missed by all.” Indeed!
Even the real Kim Kardashian, 35, mourned the loss of the Mini version of herself. “My thoughts and prayers go out to Kim Tripp’s friends and family,” she tweeted after she heard the news. “Rest in peace, beautiful soul.”
During her short time on earth, Mini Kim would perform by recreating all of Kim’s most amazing and unforgettable moments, including her wedding to Kanye and the birth of North West. Kimberly got the chance to meet plenty of fellow celebs that caught her show, including Miley Cyrus, 23, Sandra Bullock, 51, and David Beckham, 41.
