Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett’s marriage appears to be over, according to Hollywood Life.
News broke recently that Kendra Wilkinson’s husband, Hank Baskett, had cheated on his beautiful wife with 25-year-old transgender model Ava Sabrina London. Kendra Wilkinson, who is said to be devastated over the news, lashed out by throwing the couple’s wedding photos in the family pool, sources say. Days later, the blonde beauty was seen without her wedding ring.
Rumors of cheating began flying about Kendra Wilkinson’s husband Hank Baskett in 2010, with him being accused of sleeping with strippers. This latest rumor that Hank was sleeping with a transgender model was met with laughter when Kendra Wilkinson first heard about it. Now, sources say she believes the allegations and seems to be disgusted by his behavior.
Kendra Leigh Baskett, aka Kendra Wilkinson, is known for her appearance on Hugh Hefner’s 2005 E-show The Girls Next Door. The Playboy look-a-like and San Diego native became engaged to cheating hubby Hank Baskett in 2008 then married the former wide receiver in a lavish wedding in 2009. Wilkinson wore a beautiful $20,000 silk gown.
A very pregnant, Kendra Wilkinson told US Magazine in 2009: “Hank and I were videotaping ourselves, zooming in on my stomach and saying, ‘June 27, 2009, your mommy and daddy are getting married, and you’re going to be there!’ We’re so excited!” Now, five years and three kids later, the couple is said to be heading for separation or divorce.
According to New York Daily News, Kendra Wilkinson was so enraged by the cheating allegations that she flushed her wedding ring down the toilet. Another source tells TMZ that the rumors are not true. The source says that Wilkinson has not discarded her wedding ring, and that the couple is still living in the home together and trying to work it out.
The news that Kendra’s husband Hank cheated with a transgendered female comes on the heels of another scandal involving actress and singer Jennifer Lopez, who recently split from her beau, Casper Smart. It was rumored that Casper had also cheated with a transgender model.
The modeling industry has experienced an influx of transgender models due to discrimination on the job. According to a study found in the book Transgender Employment Experiences: Gendered Perceptions and The Law, by Kyla Bender-Baird, 50 percent of transgender people have reported discrimination in the workplace. And that discrimination has resulted in either being fired or not hired.
