Armando wrote a lengthy statement on social media to explain what happened to the mother to his daughter. He said, “This message is to clear up my daughter’s mother’s passing. I am addressing this to clear up any confusion as I did not want to go into specifics on the show but not, I find it necessary.”
He added, “My then-wife and I had been separated for a few months before her passing for a number of reasons, one of which was anger issues she was working on. During our separation, we were working on rebuilding our friendship again … During the divorce proceedings and on the evening of her passing a disagreement took place over finances and I thought it would be best to leave the situation and return back to my home.”
Armando said, “After that, 15-20 minutes later I was driving down the highway and I was shocked when I suddenly struck from behind and then was hit again. As I continued down the highway, I then realized it was my ex-wife and before I knew it she lost control of her vehicle and passed away on the scene.”
He continued, “As you can understand this was a very tragic event in the life of my daughter and I as we lost her and an unborn baby. This was a very difficult moment for everyone involved, myself, our family, our friends and has been a long grieving process and out of respect for my daughter’s mother and her memory I ask for your empathy and understanding on this personal tragedy. Thank you.”
The reality star ended, “The reason I’m putting this out is because there are news articles out there from the time of the accident corroborating what I’m saying. I do not wish I did not have to touch on this in her loving memory but I was already receiving questions so decided to put out this statement to prevent any speculations or untruths. She was a wonderful mother and person.”
