Even though we knew this was coming, it's still extremely sad.

In Alexis Arquette's death certificate obtained by TMZ, it was revealed the star passed away from complications related to AIDS. Apparently the actress had battled the disease for twenty-nine years, which means she contracted the illness at 18-years-old.

Wow… it's amazing the transgender star was able to hang on for that long in light of her serious condition.

As for the official cause of death, Ms. Arquette died of a heart attack after contracting a bacterial infection in her heart. Obviously, AIDS put the activist in the position to fall victim to the infection — not to mention her weakened immune system also prevented any chance at recovery.

Our thoughts continue to be with Alexis' loved ones and friends.
