by at . Comments

New information has been revealed about the life of Russell Armstrong, the estranged ex-husband of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong, the day after he committed suicide by hanging.

According to attorny Ronald Richards, Russell had been staying at a friend's house due to major financial problems.

"His credit cards weren't working," Richards 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."
