Weeks after news of her divorce surfaced, Taylor Armstrong reveals her husband, Russell, was physically and emotionally abusive during their 5-year marriage.
In a new interview with People magazine, Taylor openly admits Russell not only grabbed and shoved her, but also pulled her hair and threw things at her. Because Taylor suffered physical abuse as a child and has worked with survivors of domestic violence at shelters for years, we can imagine it must be a traumatizing place to revisit.
“Allowing this to happen in my own relationship was something I felt very ashamed of,” she says, adding that she also filed for divorce for the sake of her 5-year-daughter, Kennedy.
As for Russell, who moved out of the family home in June, he confessed to the mag that he may have pushed Taylor “in the heat of the moment” but denies ever pulling her hair.
It definitely sounds like Taylor did the right thing by ending this troubled marriage.
