Russell Armstrong's Insurance Policy Might Have Named His Son, Not Taylor

| Filed under: Sad SadReal Housewives

RusselL Armstrong Life Insurance

Russell Armstrong's sudden death has left those close to him scrambling to figure things out, including his life insurance situation and beneficiaries.

Apparently, he did have a policy that covered suicide, and the beneficiary is supposedly his son from his first marriage, not Taylor.

Aiden Armstrong, Russell's son, from his first marriage to Barbara Fredrickson, is believed to be the sole beneficiary of the policy.

Suicide is covered on some life insurance policies, and as long as the policy was taken out two years plus before the date of the suicide, and the premiums were paid and up to date, the beneficiary is entitled to the full amount of agreed payout.

"Aiden's mom, is trying to locate the documentation about Russell's life insurance policy. Barbara believes that there was a policy that named her son as the sole beneficiary at the time of Russell's suicide," the source reveals.

In a sea of bad news for Taylor, this just adds to it, as she's having major financial troubles right now.

Our hearts go out to those who are struggling in any way with his tragic passing.

    I think it's possible life insurance doesn't kick in for suicide — hope I'm wront!

    As sad as this whole situation is, this Taylor woman should be out searching for a job if she is in such financial ruin. I'm assuming she's above it though.

    That woman will probably make more from this season of her show than I will make in the next 5 years or more. So no sympathy about her finances from me. If she was left off his will, he probably had a very good reason. Get a real job like everyone else.

    I don't understand the purpose of commenting/blogging about something you clearly have no clue about. It is quite possible and very likely that this man had several life insurance policies (along with other financial concerns - annuities, etc.) It seems likely he had one for his son and another for his current wife and daughter. Not sure how old the son is, but if he is underage, then it actually would not matter if he was the named beneficiary of ONE policy, because the funds would go directly to the legal guardian (his mother), unless there was a trust set up. And sure, the son's mother is going to think he was named because when he first took out the policy, he had her sign off on naming the son a beneficiary. Even if he did have one policy, he could have changed the beneficiary when he remarried, and not notified the ex-wife, as he is not required to do. This whole thing about speculating is just so wrong and evil. And if you are wondering what I am doing on this site, it's because I read an article saying this blogger tweeted a photo of MC that could land him in prison — which is about time! I am so hoping for justice. And thus, it would end posting photos of underage girls in compromising positions, unbeknownst to them (pervert!!!!) and put an end to evil gossip about people, as well.

    I don't feel sorry for this woman. Hey, she's going to have to work like the best of us. Besides that, I'm sure she's getting a hefty check from Bravo. Geez, sure beats my $20 an hour job.

    If there is a policy and it is legit that would be awsome this filty cow would be flipping in her skin. LOL

    he may have had several policies and one may easily pre-date his marriage to Taylor
    very common actually for people with a bit of money

    fuck her. if she is having money problems she can get a real fucking job like everyone else. oh boo hoo. poor taylor. no pun intended.

    Good! I am glad it names his son, as it should. I guess it should name all 3 of his kids to be fair. These kids are going to need the $ to go to college. Taylor was a gold digger when she married him and she is a grown woman who came on the show bragging that she owned businesses and spends $60K on a birthday party. Let her go get a job if she is having financial troubles! Taylor wants us to feel sorry for her, this is a tragic event, but I feel sorry for the kids, not Taylor.

    Good, I am glad Taylor (or whatever the hell her real name is) isn't getting a dime! her lavish over the top spending is the reason they are having financial troubles in the first place. Maybe she should have spent less money on over the top birthday parties for her children, that were in reality all about her. Wah wah she has to actually work for something in her life, hell who are we kidding, she will just go around gold diggin and find another man who is looking for a trophy wife.

  13. @v@ says – reply to this


    The son isn't getting thousands an episode, so will probably need it now that support is out the window due to his actions.

    Taylor filed for divorce before he killed himself……

    she is NOT entitled to any money.

  15. 15

    Re: sunnie2000 – Taylor filed for divorce……she does not deserve any money….moron…..she caused Russell's pain.

  16. 16

    Good. His kid should get the money,not that stupid greedy cow. If not for her the kid would still have a father. If she's broke maybe she should get a job like everyone else does when they need money

    Are you SERIOUS!!?? Taylor should have shut her big EPIC Reality mouth instead of airing all their divorce dirty laundry on the NET!! They had a child together, people need to grow up and stop being so damn self centred/self absorbed! She looks like a freak with all her facial surgery, WAY older then her age, and now everyone should feel sorry for her b/c her husband had too much and killed himself! UM YEAH! Let's feel sorry for the person who potentially pushed this man over the edge to the point of no return! Shame on you TOO Perez! i thought you stopped your bitchy attacks online, but it seems you've persecuted this man as well, any guilt now? I hope Taylor has to work her ass off to keep her head above water, and that NO man is stupid enough to fall into her skelletor trap anytime soon! Let her grow a conscience in the mean time!
