This announcement isn’t as much of a surprise as the Channing Tatum/Jenna Dewan split, but still unfortunate and sad nonetheless, that Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett are ending their marriage of almost 9 years.
Rumors had been circulating for months that there was trouble in paradise for the reality TV stars, but it wasn’t confirmed until today when Kendra posted a number of videos online eluding to a split.
TMZ posted a couple of Kendra’s videos. In one of them, she said through tears that she’ll always love Hank and that she did everything she could. The couple got married in 2009 at the Playboy Mansion, and have two children together, a son, 8-year-old Hank IV and a daughter, 3-year-old Alijah.
We first learned of the couple’s marital troubles back in 2014, when Hank allegedly had an affair with a transgender model while Kendra was eight months pregnant. At the time, Kendra decided to stay with Hank and work things out. “The marriage was never a walk in the park. They had a lot of issues, whether it was his lack of longevity in his career to his Super Bowl fiasco to her postpartum depression to his infidelity to money and career problems. … It just never was the fairytale she wanted,” a source close to Kendra told People magazine.
People has also reported that Hank has moved out of the family home while Kendra prepared to file for legal separation.
