Sending her condolences. Kim Kardashian paid tribute to the late Kimberly Tripp via Twitter on Monday, March 21. The Las Vegas performer, who was known as Mini Kim Kardashian, died at the age of 32 over the weekend.

"My thoughts and prayers go out to Kim Tripp's friends and family!" the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 35, tweeted. "Rest in peace beautiful soul."

As previously reported, Tripp's body was found outside her Las Vegas apartment by her boyfriend, Ricky Sells Jr., on Sunday, March 20. Sells Jr. plays Kanye West at the Beacher’s Madhouse theater.

"Today is a sad day," Jeff Beacher, founder of the performance theater, told Us Weekly in a statement. "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."

Tripp and Sells Jr. acted out several of Kimye's milestones for audiences over the years. In 2013, Tripp reenacted the birth of Kardashian and West's daughter, North. The actors also said "I do" in a fake wedding after the famous couple married in 2014.

Tripp's cause of death has yet to be determined and the incident is still under investigation.
