LOS ANGELES (AP) — The estranged husband of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Taylor Armstrong has been found dead in his Los Angeles home.

Los Angeles County coroner's spokesman Ed Winter says 47-year-old Russell Armstrong was pronounced dead at 8:16 p.m. Monday in a home on Mulholland Drive.

Death was caused by hanging and Winter says a suicide note hasn't been found.

Bravo, which airs the reality series, issued a statement Tuesday saying, "All of us at Bravo are deeply saddened by this tragic news. Our sympathy and thoughts are with the Armstrong family at this difficult time."

Russell Armstrong was an investment banker and venture capitalist.

His publicist, Rebekah Iliff, says he's the founding managing director of Crescent Financial Partners. She also confirms Armstrong and his wife were in the midst of a divorce.

The death was first reported by TMZ.com.
