Russell Armstrong's Lawyer

Taylor's Bruise Pics Are Phony!

9/20/2011 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Taylor Armstrong has sunk to a new low, according to her late husband's lawyer -- who claims the black eye photos she recently sold for 6 figures to E.T. are nothing but a shameless hoax.

The lawyer, Ronald Richards, tells TMZ ... the injuries depicted in the pictures were not inflicted by Russell.

According to Ronald, the injuries in the photos are either from plastic surgery ... or a recent incident involving a football to the face -- but not from domestic violence.

Richards tells TMZ, "If Mr. Armstrong was the cause of those injuries he would have been arrested and prosecuted."  Richards also notes ... Taylor never filed a police report.

Sources close to Taylor insist the pics are legit -- claiming Taylor never reported any injuries because she was under enormous pressure to keep up appearances for the show.

As one source puts it -- the black eye pics are just the tip of the iceberg ... the rest make Rihanna's battered face "look like child's play."

anyone with a soul would keep that information to themselves and not make that mans suicide all about her... what a nutcase the guy kills himself under horrible cir****tances and she comes out ....1 month after the whole thing to tell everybody how he was a bad guy.. thats sickenining in my opinion.

she is crafting a defense - abused wife syndrome - so people will think she was not the center of Russels cons- scams. Simply put- it's all about when he ran out of people to roll - and her faux Auto-empire act- ran out of people to target -keep in mind she had no issues spending other peoples money on her FISH LIP addiction.

I wouldn't be so quick to scream, "phony." There is a do***ented history of physical abuse against this man, from more than one prior relationship. She shouldn't be playing it up so publicly and dramatically, considering his suicide, but speaking of.....he didn't kill himself because he was happy and proud of himself. He obviously feared being exposed and ruined.....and feeling guilt, as well. She's a gold digger yes....and she's milking this for all it's worth. While there may be some exaggeration, I feel it has a lot of truth to it. HER MOUTH LOOKS LIKE A PAINTED-ON CLOWN'S MOUTH....LOOKS SPLATTERED ALL OVER HER FACE. These "women" go WAY overboard with cosmetic surgery!!

MY MEDICAL BACKGROUND was not in surgery, therefore, I am not qualified to comment on what looks like this woman's extremely serious eye injury, which, was posted earlier. If it is a "fake" someone "out there" is more talented in the make-up department than the public could possibly know.

I am not buying her stories either...she is a very smart woman and if he was being abused she would have left a long time ago...No one becomes an abuser over night...I do think they were having financial problems and thought they would make money from the show, but his financial problems were bigger than the money they would make...Lisa V. knew that they were having problems...she knew something was very wrong...he did not want to be around the other men...he was embarrassed. She made me sick on Dr. Phil and than I read that she has a guy already actually she had this guy before she filed for divorce...what people will do.Very, very sad for this man.

She is a disgrace to all women, what a complete phoney. Shame on you Taylor Armstrong, I feel bad for your daughter having a mother like you. GOD doesn't like ugly.

Please, please please -just go away. Taylor is pathetic and needs help. She is destroying the show with her ugly, phony crying on every episode. Wish she was the one that was gone.
