It’s a sad day in Las Vegas today after an entertainer known as ‘Mini Kim Kardashian‘ has been found dead in the US city at the age of 32.

Kimberly Tripp was a regular performer at Vegas hotspot Beachers Madhouse, based at swanky hotel and casino the MGM Grand, where she played a miniature version of everyone’s favourite reality star.

Her body was reportedly found by her boyfriend, Ricky Sells Jr – who appeared alongside her on stage as Mini Kanye West – in the front porch of their Las Vegas apartment just after midnight on Sunday morning.

The company’s founder, Jeff Beacher, confirmed the sad news, telling TMZ: ‘Today is a sad day, 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.’

The Beachers boss told the celebrity gossip site that Kimberly has been in good health as recently as Saturday.

He also told the New York Daily News: ‘Everybody loved her. She was very, very charming. It’s a real horrible loss. She was a great girl.’

Kimberly joined Beachers in 2005, giving many memorable performances – including one act that saw her give ‘birth’ live on stage hours after the real-life Kim and Kanye welcomed their first child, daughter North, into the world in 2013.

She went on to appear in a fake wedding with Ricky after Kim and Kanye tied the knot in 2014.

Kimberley was snapped with a string of celebrities during her time at Beachers, including Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie, The Hills star Lauren Conrad, and David Beckham.

Her cause of death is yet to be confirmed.
