Perez has been inexhaustibly providing updates, one of which was his sister revealing that he shot her. He was 6, and accidentally set off a loaded gun which their father left hanging around the house, so naturally Perez went with, "Russell Armstrong shot his sister" headline.
The next update?
"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. 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. 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. He was into S&M type stuff; choking, rough-housing and slapping."
Wow. Such an unbelievable tragedy.
It's clear that this man was struggling with a lot of stress and personal demons, and we suppose that he just couldn't see a way out.
We just sincerely hope that regardless of what comes out about their family's private life, that everyone keep in mind that Russell was still a father, husband, and friend to many, and Taylor and her young daughter are given the appropriate space, privacy and support they need to come to terms with this inconsolable loss.
Our thoughts are with you guys. Stay strong."
YOU'RE FUCKING TALKING ABOUT REPSECTING HIS FAMILY'S PRIVACY AFTER PROVIDING UPDATES ON HIS SEXUALITY???!!! IS HIM BEING BISEXUAL ANYTHING TO DO WITH HIS DEATH??!
And yet, I keep reading. I'm like the online equivalent of a rubbernecker.
