Russell’s estranged wife Taylor reportedly discovered his double life but his long-time attorney says he would have known if there was such a book!
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Russell Armstrong‘s shocking Aug. 15 suicide is being linked to his bisexuality — allegedly discovered by his estranged wife Taylor and to be published in a tell-all book. But HollywoodLife.com spoke with Russell’s attorney Ronald Richards who tells us Russell wasn’t bisexual and that this is totally made up!
“It’s a total lie, canard and not even worth responding to … to give it any traction or merit,” Ronald tells us. “If such a book existed, no one would buy it and I would have bankrupted the publisher for libel. He did like women and these claims are defamatory on his face. Hopefully no one would publish such a libelous contention.”
RadarOnline reports that Russell, who died at 47, had first been shamed when Taylor, 40, discovered some of his secrets.
“About six months ago Taylor confided in a close friend that she’d found history for a gay website called Adam4Adam.com on Russell’s laptop,” a source says. “He was also spending a lot of time at the gym, but his body wasn’t changing, which she claims led her to believe he was meeting with men he’d met off the website and not spending time working out as he claimed.”
Furthermore, the details Russell feared would come out in a tell-all book allegedly got even more lurid.
“Not only was it going to come out that Russell was bisexual, but there were people on the record that were going to talk about the kind of sex he liked,” the source said. “He was into S&M type stuff; choking, rough-housing and slapping.”
This whole story is beyond tragic — we just hope the whole Armstrong family can begin to find some semblance of peace.
