Russell Armstrong, estranged ex-husband of ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star Taylor Armstrong, who committed suicide last night, was suffering from major financial problems, reports The Hollywood Gossip
“His credit cards weren’t working,” Ronald Richards, attorney for Armstrong, told TMZ. “He was also extremely bummed out about the divorce with Taylor. As far as a will, even if he does have a will, they don’t have any assets, so I’m not sure what there would be left to leave. I am extremely saddened . . . I had no idea he was depressed.”
