Stephanie Russell is a doctor in Louisville, Kentucky…and she’s been knee-deep in a brutal custody battle with her ex-husband. She’s even gone as far as to hire a hitman to have him rubbed out…allegedly. Officials say the pediatrician paid $7,000 to an undercover FBI agent to do the job, and another $3,500 later on to “settle half the fake hitman’s bill”…with the other half coming after “he finished the job.”
This isn’t the first time, either. Court docs from 2020 show a legal rep claiming Russell tried the same stunt once before (in 2018). At the time, Russell’s lawyer denied the accusations, and Russell even took to suing the judge in the case over claims that she “coached” her kids in a custody case.
