Real housewife Taylor Armstrong was allegedly beaten by her deceased husband Russell Armstrong after she told him she admitted on camera that he had abused her and also told her friends she planned to report his past physical abuse to law enforcement according to RadarOnline.com.
“Taylor’s friends were so worried about her and Kennedy’s welfare. Her advisers issued a gauntlet, either file for divorce, or we are going to the cops and Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services with our fears,” a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com. “When Taylor told Russell what her friends planned on doing, he beat her, and that is what caused her to go to the hospital.”
“Taylor was broken and beaten when she was hospitalized. She took pictures to document what had happened. Taylor made the decision to pull the plug on her marriage while she was still in the hospital. She realized she had no other choice,” the insider says.
During Russell Armstrong’s first marriage to wife Barbara court documents revealed that, “Russell threw me to the ground and slapped me across the face….the police were called to Russell’s and my residence during our marriage because Russell hit me, blackened my eyes, kicked me in the back, threw crystal drinking glasses at me and spit on me.”
In March of 1998 Armstrong was put on probation, ordered to attend an anger management program, 50 AA meetings and donate $1000 to a Women’s clinic in Venice, California.
