After rumors spread on Tuesday that Kendra Wilkinson was considering filing for divorce from Hank Baskett, sources close to the reality-TV star stepped forward, claiming that the couple was still together despite Baskett’s recent affair with transsexual escort Ava London. While some of Wilkinson’s pals are claiming that the currently estranged duo are working on their marriage, some insiders close to the former Playboy model are singing a different tune.
According to a report from the July 14 edition of InTouch Weekly, Wilkinson, 29, is “100 percent done” with her 31-year-old retired NFL beau, the report going on to indicate that the couple’s split is imminent.
“She’s inconsolable,” one insider close to Wilkinson told the tabloid. According to sources, the “Girls Next Door” lead turned “Kendra” reality star has been sobbing non-stop since learning of Baskett’s alleged affair with London in her Northern California home in April. “She’s just trying to get her head around the fact that her life has been turned upside down almost overnight,” added the source.
In contrast to recent reports, two separate insiders close to Wilkinson (who was eight months pregnant during the athlete’s rumored tryst) claim that a permanent split is the only option Wilkinson is currently considering. “Kendra is a mess and won’t take him back. She will never get over this” said one source, another adding, “They are 100 percent done at this point. She feels like she doesn’t even know who she was married to all this time.”
Despite the possible end of her five-year marriage, Wilkinson is reportedly putting on a brave face for her two kids she shares with Baskett, Hank IV, 4, and Alijah, 1 month. “She’s such a good mother and so strong,” Kendra’s friend and former “Kendra” co-star Jessica Hall, 31, told the magazine at a benefit for the Leukemia and Lymphomas Society in Los Angeles June 27, an event which Wilkinson was originally slated to attend before news of the affair broke. “She’s a tough cookies,” added Hall. “Always has been.”
According to previous reports, Wilkinson is currently residing in her and Baskett’s Calabasas, California abode with three of her closest girlfriends, her two children, and her previously estranged mom, Patti.
