As some have come to doubt Taylor Armstrong's abuse claims, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has just released medical records detailing the injuries she obtained at the hands of her late husband, Russell Armstrong.
Announced this morning via Armstrong's Facebook
accounts, Taylor told followers that she had been pushed to a breaking point of sorts, and would finally release her official medical records in an effort to silence those who disbelieve her allegations.
"For those who continue to say I'm lying. Ur harming women who suffer n silence making them even mote afraid 2 speak up & get help. So...I'm releasing my medical records on my FB page in a few minutes," wrote Armstrong. "I'm not doing it because I have to. I'm doing it because I want to. Calling someone who has been abused a liar is abusive."
"Here's the first record from the imaging center who examined my eye," said Taylor in an accompanying document
posted to Facebook, promising "more to come" later. "Despite what the doubters have said, I will say again -- this was not an elective, cosmetic surgery."
The article concerns a June 2011 visit to a Beverly Hills doctor, detailing "trauma" and "fracture" to Armstrong's right eye. Shocking photos of the injury
were obtained exclusively by ET
in September, showing Taylor in a hospital bed with said bruise.
Taylor's husband Russell committed suicide last August just one month after she had filed for divorce. After his suicide, Taylor described the abuse that she suffered during their marriage in an interview with ET.
Armstrong is currently promoting her memoir entitled Hiding from Reality: My Story of Love, Loss, and Finding the Courage Within, released February 7, 2012.
