Hank Baskett and Kendra Wilkinson could be headed for divorce after the former NFL player was allegedly caught in an affair with a transsexual.
This weekend reports emerged that Hank had left the family home and went to a hotel. He reportedly stayed there for “several hours,” chatting with two friends there, but it’s not clear if Hank stayed the night. Reports did day he went home at least for a few hours, but it was unclear if he remained at his home or went back to the hotel.
A new report from Radar Online may shed light on just why Hank was stepping out on his Playboy playmate wife. Sources tell the site that Hank Baskett has been secretly meeting with a transsexual for an affair, one that started when Kendra was 8 months pregnant.
“Hank first met up with the woman around April 22 in Sherman Oaks, California,” an insider reveals. “He called her twice before they met in person. He said he’d seen her YouTube videos online, and he couldn’t believe that her photos were real.”
The source added that Hank has been sly about the affair, using fake name when setting up trysts.
Radar Online included some graphic details of their encounter, which reportedly stopped short of sex.
“Before leaving, he gave her almost $500 and told her he wanted to stay in touch,” the source claims.
But Hank Baskett was reportedly growing worried that the affair would be revealed, the source added.
“They spoke a couple times after their first sexual encounter. Hank always called from different numbers, and at least once from a pay phone,” the unnamed person said.
The source added:
“After the Casper Smart transsexual controversy, he started to get freaked out and paranoid she would say something, and called her six times in one day to plead with her not to spill.
“He promised he would take care of her financially, and even left her $2,000 in a coffee cup at her house. He promised her $5,000 to keep her mouth shut, and even threatened to kill himself if the story got out!”
The source said that Kendra Wilkinson is ready for divorce now that Hank Baskett has been caught cheating.
