Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Russell Armstrong was so distraught over his pending divorce that he hung himself in his room, leaving behind his ex-wife Taylor Armstrong and five-year-old daughter Kennedy.
According to TMZ, Russell reached a tipping point just days before his death, when he also discovered he was inundated with debt.
Armstrong’s lawyer Ronald Richards said, “I feel bad because his credit cards weren’t working … He had tremendous financial problems.”
Richards adds, “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.”
Going through a divorce is tough and when you add on tremendous debt in this economy, it’s hard for anyone to bare.
