Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 3 star Mimi Faust is definitely going through a lot lately. In addition to receiving tons of criticism for her newly-released sex tape with boyfriend Nikko, Mimi revealed on May 8 that her father passed away.

“REST IN PEACE DAD!!! 5/8/14 U WILL ALWAYS BE MY HERO [Heart] U WITH ALL MY HEART!!!”  she posted to Instagram along with a photo of her father smiling.

In case you didn’t know, Mimi’s mom abandoned her at the age of 13 for the Church of Scientology. Thirteen years later, Mimi found her biological dad and started a loving relationship with him — even legally changing her last name at the time (James) to his (Faust).

While we’re not sure how close Mimi was to her father since their reunion in Mimi’s 20s, it appears that she loved her father dearly.

At this time, we know that Mimi’s life is already hectic enough — what with a new Season of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta and her now infamous sex tape — so wish Mimi all the best during this most sad time in her family.
