LOS ANGELES – Following allegations of domestic violence and a messy ongoing divorce made public by a Bravo reality show, the estranged husband of a “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star was found dead Monday, according to TMZ.com.

Taylor Armstrong’s quiet, introverted husband, Russell, was found hanging in his Los Angeles home.

Los Angeles County coroner’s spokesman Ed Winter says the 47-year-old was pronounced dead at 8:16 p.m. at the home located on Mulholland Drive.

Winter says no suicide note has been found yet.

Russell Armstrong was an investment banker and venture capitalist.   His publicist, Rebekah Iliff, confirmed he’s the founding managing director of Crescent Financial Partners.
