“The pressure of being in the TV spotlight was pretty overwhelming. It took our manageable problems and made them worse. We are very supportive of each other and love each other. I will support her as best I can moving forward.”
Los Angeles County coroner’s spokesman Ed Winter told AP that Armstrong, 47, was found hanging and was pronounced dead at 8:16 p.m. Monday in a home on Mulholland Drive. No suicide note has been found and an autopsy is being conducted.
Taylor, 40, filed for divorce on July 15 from Armstrong, citing physical and verbal abuse. The show frequently showcased their on-air fights and she told People he would sometimes grab her, shove her, throw things at her and pull her air. He told the magazine the show had hurt their relationship.
