Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong has spoken out about the apparent suicide of her husband Russell on Monday night.

"Taylor Armstrong is devastated by the tragic events that have unfolded," her rep says in a statement. "She requests privacy at this time so that she may comfort her young daughter" – 5-year-old Kennedy.

The statement adds that Armstrong's "thoughts and prayers" are also with Russell’s 11- and 13-year-old sons from previous relationships.





Russell was found dead in a friend's Los Angeles home, according to police.

Taylor Armstrong, 40, had filed for divorce on July 15 from Russell, 47, citing physical and verbal abuse.
