Russell Armstrong, who viewers of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills may recognize as star Taylor Armstrong's now-estranged husband, was found dead of apparent suicide in his Los Angeles home Monday night.

This terrible news comes a month after Taylor filed for divorce from Armstrong under allegations of abuse. According to TMZ, he was found hanging in his bedroom.

People Magazine's report states that Armstrong was being sued for $1.5 million by My Medical Records at the time of his death for misuse of funds and a breach of contract.

Armstrong was 47.
