TMZ reports that Russell Armstrong of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was found dead in his home on Mulholland Drive last night. The police believe that Russell committed suicide, because the fire department found him hanging in his bedroom. Russell’s roommate found him at around 8pm. Russell was 47.
Russell was going through a messy ass divorce with Taylor Armstrong and she recently accused him of beating on her during the end of their marriage. Russell admitted to pushing her around, but said he never Ike Turnered her in any way. Russell was also facing a $1.5 million lawsuit from a company that claims he and Taylor skimmed money off the top to pay for their lifestyle.
Russell is survived by his 5-year-old daughter with Taylor and his two sons from a previous relationship.
