RIP.

Transgender reality star and model, Miriam Rivera, has passed away at the age of 38.

Miriam, known for There's Something About Miriam and Big Brother, reportedly took her own life in February with news of her death only hitting the public this week.

A close friend of Miriam, who was last reported to be a $500-an-hour escort, Jeanett Ørtoft posted about her passing, writing: 

"You made a huge different for me and so many other people around this planet, that you made significantly more colourful. Your life was too short, but you sure made it remarkable."

The news is hitting headlines this week after Miriam's husband, Daniel Cuervo, told Mail Online that he suspected her death had been "passed off" as a suicide. 

Jenett expressed the same fears, telling Mail Online: “Some say she was killed for going against human trafficking, others say that she took her own life."
