Taylor had filed for divorce from Russell last month. In a recent interview with People magazine
, the reality star alleged that she was verbally and physically abused during the couple's nearly six-year marriage. She said the couple often had explosive arguments in which Russell would curse and call her names and it would sometimes escalate from there. At times, Taylor said Russell resorted to physical violence, including grabbing her, throwing objects, shoving her and pulling her hair. "I felt like I was dying inside," Taylor told the magazine. "Now, there's some sense of peace," she said at the time.
