The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills: Taylor and Russell Armstrong’s Divorce Plus $1.5 Million Lawsuit

July 30, 2011 07:18 AM by Megan Thompson

Taylor Armstrong, from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, filed for divorce from husband Russell just this past month. Viewers were not surprised, since Russell seemed to have no personality and seemed very controlling of his wife. What people are saddend by is that Taylor admitted her relationship was abusive! Plus, now she and Russell are being sued! Keep reading for the latest scoop!

Taylor opened up to People on why she is leaving her six year marriage. Taylor tells the magazine that Russell was emotionally and sometimes physically abusive to her! What? Yes, Taylor explained that their arguments would escalate with name calling, pushing and pulling hair. So what does this guy have to say for himself? Russell isn’t denying Taylors claims saying, “Did I push her? Yes, maybe things happened in the heat of the moment, but it was during a time in our lives that was not characteristic of who we were. This show has literally pushed us to the limit.” Does he really think this is a good excuse or a good home environment for their daughter, Kennedy?

And when it rains it pours! Besides his wife filing for divorce, Russell is also having trouble with his venture capital business. On Friday a suit was filed in L.A. court which states that Russell “breached his fiduciary duty.” Basically, Russell and Taylor are being sued for $1.5 million! The lawsuit is accusing Mr. and Mrs. Armstrong of using the plaintiff’s business funds for their own personal gain, like redecorating their house.

Taylor chose the right time to dump this guy! Hopefully Taylor will show us how much girl power she has on the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which premiers September 5th. Everyone likes a comeback story and we want Taylor to see there are successful and nice guys out there! What do you think of Russell? Let us know what you think about him, comment below!
