Recently pictures of the Bravo star, Taylor Armstrong, were released that showed her face badly bruised. The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star has claimed these bruises were caused by her late husband, Russell Armstrong. Keep reading to find out what Russell’s attorney has to say about the alleged abuse.
If you are watching The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills you know that Russell and Taylor’s marriage was definitely hitting rock bottom. On last night’s episode, Taylor had what appeared to be a total emotional breakdown. The ladies hinted that Taylor suffered domestic violence, but nothing was confirmed. Watching the episode was somewhat chilling, now that we know how the story ends.
Tonight, on Entertainment Tonight, Taylor Armstrong is speaking out for the first time since Russell’s suicide. It’s rumored that Taylor will be talking about how Russell physically abused her. Russell may be deceased, but his lawyer is not happy with the story Taylor is sharing. Ronald Richards, the lawyer, spoke exclusively with TMZ and he is calling the pictures a “shameless hoax.” Ronald claims Taylor’s bruises are not from abuse, but from either plastic surgery or from an accident with a football that hit her face.
It’s true that Taylor never did file any police reports against her estranged husband. Though friends of Taylor say she didn’t go to the police because she was under intense pressure to maintain a certain image for the Bravo show. Taylor’s friends say the bruises were definitely caused by Russell and even go as far to say, “the black eye pics are just the tip of the iceberg…the rest make Rihanna’s battered face look like child’s play.”
Will you be watching the Entertainment Tonight interview? I’m sure Russell’s family or attorney will be watching and releasing a statement after the show. Let us know what you think about this story, comment below!
