There has been a buzz about a mysterious injury Taylor Armstrong suffered just 4 days before her estranged husband, Russell, committed suicide, but Taylor's friends insist the cut above her eye was not inflicted by him.

Taylor's friends tell TMZ ... the injury occurred while she was playing a game of football.

Taylor filed for divorce last month, claiming Russell physically abused her.

The poor husband is gone forever and all of a sudden its a big deal that she has a 1/2 inch cut over her eye.. I watched the show and he didn't seem abusive, yeah he was a jerk sometimes (but what guy isn't) and didn't wanna hang out all night at parties filled with drama but that didn't make him an abuser or a bad husband. She didn't look to miserable or abused when she was out with all her girls spendng money.. RIP Russell so sad..

The nasty gash above Taylor's eye is typical of being pistol-whipped with a phone. I believe he was rough with her.

I do not care about these people whatsoever. They are non factors in my life. TV is such garbage now. Not even worth turning on. Glad im old enough to remember back when it was good though. I miss those days.

Not that I'm doubting what her friends say, but Taylor hardly seems like a "let's play a game of football" girl.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Russell Armstrong had secrets about his sexual preference that were about to be revealed, and RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that some were already discovered by his estranged wife, Taylor Armstrong.

According to sources close to the 47-year-old, he was bisexual and worried that a tell-all book was going to out him, along with Taylor.

"About six months ago Taylor confided in a close friend that she'd found history for a gay website called Adam4Adam.com on Russell's laptop," the insider told RadarOnline.com.

"He was also spending a lot of time at the gym, but his body wasn't changing, which she claims led her to believe he was meeting with men he'd met off the website and not spending time working out as he claimed."

The insider also tells RadarOnline.com that when Russell was approached for comment about the impending tell-all book, it included great detail about what he liked in the bedroom.

"Not only was it going to come out that Russell was bisexual, but there were people on the record that were going to talk about the kind of sex he liked," the source said. "He was into S&M type stuff; choking, rough-housing and slapping."

The businessman had a history of violence in his past, including allegations of abuse by Taylor and restraining orders filed against him by his ex-wife and an ex-girlfriend.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Russell's ex-wife attributes his suicide to his relationship with Taylor and the pressures of being on the hit Bravo TV show, along with immense financial hardship.

Russell was found hanged in the bedroom of a friend's home on Monday night and pronounced dead at 8:16 p.m. by the Los Angeles City Fire Department.

There is no way Taylor would play football. She'd be afraid she'd mess her face up worse than it already is with those fish lips.

By "injured" I thought you meant she had another gallon of crap stuffed into her lips - until I saw that tiny mark above her eye.

She's amazingly ugly, like a crocodile trying to look hot.

Well, if it is from her being pistol whipped by a phone as one laser states, then she absolutely deserved it, dude is gone, as in dead.
