Kendra Wilkinson is embroiled in divorce drama with husband Hank Baskett, but it appears that he’s not the only one at fault.
Hank was reportedly caught hooking up with transgender model Ava Sabrina London, an affair that carried on all while Kendra was pregnant with Hank’s child. But now it’s being reported that Kendra was having an affair of her own, and it was with one of her husband’s former NFL associates.
A new report from Star Magazine claims that Kendra Wilkinson has been having an affair with Shawne Merriman, the ex-NFL linebacker who she dated for a stretch in 2007. The source claims that Kendra and Shawne hooked up during Kendra’s visit to San Diego last year.
At the time, Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett were reportedly at odds over having more kids, and Kendra was growing tired of Hank’s refusal. The affair with Shawne Merriman only deepened the rift, sources say.
Celeb Dirty Laundry notes:
Not too long after that Kendra suggested to Hank that they should try an open marriage and he laughed at the idea because he thought that she was joking. Sources now say that Kendra’s suggestion was no joke and that she wasn’t totally happy in her marriage.
Kendra Wilkinson has been getting a lot of support during her recent troubles. Her former boyfriend and Playboy employer Hugh Hefner reportedly reached out to let Kendra know that she was welcome to stay at the Playboy mansion any time she wanted to.
“He told her to come to the Playboy Mansion any time,” a source told Us Weekly. “He’s been supportive and hates that Kendra is going through this.”
Sources say that Hank and Kendra are trying to deal with the matter privately, and Kendra has gone silent on social media during the crisis. She has also been spotted with her wedding ring off.
But Hank Baskett and Kendra Wilkinson have a lot of motivation to move past their affairs and make the marriage work again. The couple has a seven-week-old daughter at home, Aijah Mary
