Russell Armstrong, the husband of Taylor Armstrong from “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” was reportedly found dead Monday night at the age of 47.
E! News reports that the L.A. Police Department confirmed that Armstrong’s body was found last night in his home on Mulholland Drive after an apparent hanging. His death is being investigated as a suicide.
Armstrong, a venture capitalist and investment banker, had been married to Taylor Armstrong for six years, but the two had a rocky relationship, as regular viewers of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” could often see. Taylor Armstrong filed for divorce from her husband last month. The two have a daughter, Kennedy, who is 5.
In a recent interview with E!’s Marc Malkin, Taylor Armstrong discussed the dissolution of her marriage, which will be depicted further in the second season of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” beginning next month.
“I know it’s going to be hard for me to watch a lot of it,” she said.. “It’s been such an emotional ride for me this year. And it’s one thing to experience it, but then to watch it again on television and know that millions of other people are watching, it’s going to be tough.”
