Although he calls the divorce “a devastating time,” he wants people to know he and Taylor are not “bitter enemies.” (In fact, he says they still love each other and are “very supportive” of each other.)
As for the reason for the split, Taylor cited irreconcilable differences, but Russell admits life in the limelight (read: RHoBH) may have had something to do with their crumbling union.
“The pressure of being in the TV spotlight was pretty overwhelming,” he tells RumorFix. “It took our manageable problems and made them worse.”
To us, the fact that Taylor saw her marriage as a business that lacked romance isn’t an issue that the addition of cameras could exacerbate, but what do we know?
“We had a wonderful marriage,” continues Russell. “We have a beautiful five-year-old daughter who we both love.”
Russell promises to “support [Taylor] as best [he] can” and of course, provide for daughter Kennedy financially in the coming years.
