Sources are saying Real Housewives of Beverly HillsTaylor Armstrong’s estranged husband Russell “felt totally out of control” before his suspected suicide Monday night.

Russell was dealing with both serious money troubles and his divorce from Taylor. “He was so angry about everything," a close friend of Russell told Us Weekly. "But never did anyone suspect he would kill himself."

Adds another insider: "Russell was dealing with a heavy amount of emotional and familial distress. His life was in shambles."

Taylor isn’t sure how to break the news to their daughter, Kennedy. "She's not emotionally ready to do so just yet,” says a friend close to the reality star.

Taylor's attorney, Robert Thorne, said Taylor has asked for privacy during this time of grieving.
