Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Russell Armstrong was found dead in his home on Mulholland Drive earlier this morning. Â According to TMZ.com, “L.A. CityÂ Fire DepartmentÂ arrived at [Russell's] home and pronounced him dead at 8:16 PM Monday.” Â No suicide note was found.
The wealthy Texan entrepreneur was currently separated from wife and fellow RHOBH star, Taylor Armstrong, and was under heavy fire regarding her very public allegations of physical and emotional abuse during the course of their six-year marriage.
Armstrong was also facingÂ a lawsuit that stood to cost his company in the neighborhood of $1.5 million.
As of yet, Taylor Armstrong has issued no comment. Â Our thoughts and prayers are with the Armstrong family.
