Kim Kardashian Mourns ‘Mini-Me’ Kim Tripp Following Las Vegas Performer’s Death
Kim Kardashian is mourning the death of Kim Tripp, a Las Vegas performer who played a mini version of the reality star on stage at Beacher’s Madhouse, a vaudeville-inspired club. Tripp, 32, was found dead on the front porch of her Las Vegas apartment early Sunday morning.
“My thoughts and prayers go out to Kim Tripp’s friends and family! Rest in peace beautiful soul,” Kardashian tweeted after learning of Tripp’s passing. Tripp played “Mini Kim Kardashian” at Beacher’s Madhouse for a number of years. Two of her notable acts included recreating Kardashian’s wedding and the birth of North West.
Tripp’s body was discovered by her boyfriend, Ricky Sells Jr., who played Mini Kanye West in the same show, and with whom she shared an apartment. A cause of death has not yet been determined, and it isn’t known if foul play was involved or if she had some sort of medical condition. It’s not uncommon for little people to sometimes have health complications, including breathing issues and heart disease.
Tripp was among the most popular performers at Beacher’s Madhouse, which also features celebrity impersonators playing mini versions of Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Britney Spears and more.
