Kendra Wilkinson Backtracks, Thinks About Divorcing Hank Baskett Again
The woman who said she’d be “stupid” to leave her cheating husband is eating her own words after new voice recordings of her man and his mistress have surfaced.
Kendra Wilkinson, who previously announced that she’ll be staying with Hank Baskett to work on their marriage, is reportedly reconsidering divorce amid her husband’s cheating scandal, according to Us Weekly. The publication reports that Wilkinson, 29, is hesitant to reconcile with her husband after an audio file of an alleged phone call between Baskett, 32, and transgender model Ava Sabrina London went public, in which the former NFL star appears promise London that he’ll “make deposits” totaling $5,000 into her account.
“Hank had told Kendra multiple times that no recordings existed between him and the woman,” a source says. “He said they never spoke again after ‘the incident.'”
“She thinks that everything he told her is a lie,” another source adds. “The sense of trust she was rebuilding with Hank is gone again.”
Wilkinson and Baskett’s marriage hit the rocks when word got out this summer that the latter had been unfaithful to his wife when she was pregnant with their second child. Upon learning about Baskett’s infidelity, Wilkinson reportedly flushed her wedding ring down the toilet and started to seek legal advice from a divorce attorney.
At the time, Wilkinson said she would give Baskett another chance and partly blamed herself for his affair.
“Life is too short,” she explained. “And this man who I loved for six years, I believe deserves — and everyone around us … everyone knows that this man deserves a second chance if he did make a mistake. And right now I’m working that out.”
“He was going through a lot of stuff that nobody knows about. And he was trying to talk to me about it, and I would not deal with it,” she added of their marriage before Baskett’s tryst with London. “He was very lost. Very, very lost. I wish I would’ve had it in my heart to slow down a little bit and listened.”
Wilkinson and Baskett are parents to 4-year-old son Hank Jr. and 5-month-old daughter Alijah. The couple have been married since 2009.
