On August 15, 2011, Russell Armstrong was found dead of an apparently suicide at a Los Angeles mansion on Mulholland Drive. Just one month earlier his wife Taylor Armstrong filed for divorce and claimed that she was physically abused by Russell. It has also been reported that Armstrong was distraught over the impending divorce and was having crushing financial troubles. Apparently Russell was drowning in a mountain of debt, to the point where his credit cards were being declined at restaurants. Armstrong has been in debt before, having to file for bankruptcy in 2005. At the time he claimed to have no more than $50,000 in assets and as much as $10 million in debt.
