Taylor and Russell Armstrong posed with their young daughter before jetting off for a surprise birthday bash in Dallas, but just weeks later the ‘Real Housewives‘ family has been torn apart by divorce, alleged abuse and now death.
The heart wrenching photos obtained are the last snaps of the Armstrongs together, before Russell’s suicide.
Taken in mid June, the couple and their four-year-old daughter, Kennedy, couldn’t keep the smiles off their faces as they boarded a private jet which whisked them away for the party organized by Russell.
But just weeks later the family crumbled as Taylor filed for divorce amid shocking claims of physical abuse.
The 47-year-old was found hanged in the bedroom of a friend’s home in Beverly Hills on Monday night.
“He hung himself with no suicide note found,” confirmed Ed Winter of the L.A Coroner’s Office.
An autopsy is planned for Wednesday.
