Taylor Armstrong

Battling In-Laws Over

Russell's FINAL Resting Place

8/18/2011 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0817-taylor-russell-armstrong2-EXRussell Armstrong's parents and his estranged wife, Taylor Armstrong, are thousands of miles apart in a heated battle over where Russell's remains will end up.

Multiple sources close to Taylor tell us the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star is not only planning a memorial for Russell -- she also wants him to be buried at a Los Angeles area cemetery.

But Russell's attorney Ron Richards says his former client's parents want their son's body returned to Texas -- where they live -- for cremation.

As TMZ first reported, Taylor and Russell had been back in touch recently -- despite the fact she filed for divorce last month.

Richards says he believes Russell's final wishes were to be cremated. If true, Taylor might have a tough time winning this battle.

She was in the middle middle of a divorce from him. She should let HIS family do all the planning! The only reason why she is fighting them on "Anything" is because if there is money coming down the pike she wants to hide it in her lips! By her planning the service is feather in her cap later when his estate is in probate

I have no respect what-so-ever for this sl*t! She used him up till he was broke then filed for divorce but now that he's dead she wants to keep him - HUH? She needs to have one shred of human decency and leave the parents alone to do what they must with their son. Taylor can go on to do what we all know she will which is finding the next sucker to screw over for his money!

Unless he had a legal will on file stating cremation and burial site the only way his remains will be handled will be by his wife. Sorry to Russell's parents but you don't have a say... Oh and IF Taylor chose to not be a part of this then their child, Kennedy, would have the say so. It's the way the law works. SImple facts. Pre-plan your funerals and burials asap.

WTH?! Have the decency to sign off giving the poor man's remains to his parents to do as they see fit. Does Taylor have a deal with Bravo? - since Bravo is not allowed at the funeral, maybe Taylor is fashioning a deal to have Bravo film the burial? I wouldn't put anything past this gold digger or the s*** that is Bravo.

Oh cmon Taylor - the only reason you're asking for his body is because you think there might be some cash and his wallet no one retrieved yet and you want to check.

All of his friends know you only wanted him for his wallet, then you made up the BS about being abused to get him to hurry through a divorce and give you more $$ to shut up.

That is why you always should know who you are marrying and always have a will. If they don't have a will showing he wanted to be cremated there is nothing the family can do. Although she filed for divorce last month she is still married to him, and as far I as I know she has the right to his final resting place.

Taylor, You are the reason he is dead. Just because someone calls you an a** hole a few times does not constitute verbal abuse. I know you say you were abused as a child and i believe you. but you are delusional. The RHOBH has warped your thinking. Give the poor guy's parents Russell's body for goodness sake. They lost their son because of YOU and your quest for fame!!

His remains should remain closest to where HIS CHILDREN can pay their respects and visit him when they choose. If that's CA...then let it be CA. His parents need to be respectful of their grandchildren and do what's right by them.......

So much drama; with respect; the little that is left; she should honor his parents. The fact like everyone has mentioned she was divorcing him. This poor soul needs to be at peace! I feel sorry for his kids and hope they get peace as well!
