Taylor Armstrong will likely not press charges against the girl who made death threats to her and her young daughter Kennedy, as long as the troubled teen seeks professional mental health counseling, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
As we previously reported, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star received two separate death threats on Twitter from a New Jersey teen.
“This was taken very, very seriously. The death threats Taylor and her daughter received are from a teenage girl that lives in New Jersey. The teenager appears to suffer from mental health issues,” a law enforcement source tells RadarOnline.com. “Taylor is extremely grateful to the FBI for identifying the culprit.
“It was disturbing for Taylor to find out that the girl lives in New Jersey, because of the specific threat she got in regards to her book signing there on February 7.”
The FBI was able to determine very quickly who was making the threats the source says, and after learning of the culprit’s identity, age and mental health problems Taylor is not considering further action — as long as the girl seeks help.
“Taylor is willing to drop the charges if the girl gets serious mental health counseling,” the law enforcement insider tells RadarOnline.com. “Taylor wants that to be done in the juvenile courts in New Jersey, so that the girl will have to be accountable. Taylor is extremely grateful to the FBI for identifying the culprit.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, on January 29, Taylor was sent a Twitter message by @Hardboiledpeggs which said: “see u on February 7 ill be there with a book and a rope so i can kidnap u,” to which Taylor responded by saying: “Don’t ever contact me again.”
The next threatening message mentioned Taylor’s daughter, Kennedy: “Turn around bright eyes every now and then, Kennedy’s dead,” @hardboiledpeggs wrote, to which Taylor once again replied: “Don’t ever contact me again.”
The Twitter user @hardboiledpeggs has since been deleted. Armstrong has a book signing event scheduled on February 7 in New Jersey, and law enforcement sources tell RadarOnline.com that she will have increased security.
