In very sad news, the estranged husband of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ Taylor Armstrong was found dead on Monday night after reportedly committing suicide.
RumorFix spoke to Russell Armstrong just last month – and it was clear then that he was struggling to deal with his divorce while being under the media’s spotlight.
“This is a devastating time,” said Russell. “We had a wonderful marriage and I don’t want you to get the impression that Taylor and I are bitter enemies — we’re not. We have a beautiful five-year-old daughter who we both love.
“The pressure of being in the TV spotlight was pretty overwhelming. It took our manageable problems and made them worse. We are very supportive of each other and love each other. I will support her as best I can moving forward.”
Our thoughts are with Taylor and little Kennedy during this time.
