Kendra Wilkinson has reportedly taken back estranged husband Hank Baskett, two months after reports emerged that he cheated on her with a transgender model. In June, Ava London said she and Baskett had sexual trysts earlier this year.
Wilkinson had tossed her wedding ring after London came forward, and it looked like the two were heading toward divorce. But Wilkinson has reportedly let Baskett move back into their home after he told her his side of the story. The former NFL player gave a “totally absurd story,” claiming he was in the same building as London to help a female friend with an issue in her apartment. Baskett reportedly told his wife that while there, London made “unwanted sexual advances” and that he felt “violated,” a source tells Life & Style.
After remaining silent about their relationship, Wilkinson opened up in a preview for her WeTV reality show, "Kendra on Top,” which has its Season 3 premiere next month. "Our marriage is down the drain," she said in a clip obtained by People last month. "I flushed my wedding rings down the toilet."
London told RadarOnline in July, “I met Hank Baskett probably around the 22nd or 23rd of April this year. He contacted me through a video I had posted on YouTube, and we exchanged information.”
“I gave him the address to my house, he came over,” she added. “I wasn’t expecting for him to come at the time he did, and I had just gotten out of the pool with my girlfriend.” London claims she did not know that Baskett was a former NFL player, and he never identified himself by his real name. He said instead that his name was Steve and, according to the model, Baskett knew she was a transsexual.
London claims the two were intimate, though they did not have intercourse. Baskett allegedly gave her about $500 for the encounter and took a shower at her home afterward.
Wilkinson, 29, was about eight months pregnant at the time of Baskett's alleged infidelity. Wilkinson has since given birth to their daughter. Baskett and Wilkinson were married on June 27, 2009, and have two children together: Hank Baskett IV, 4, and Alijah Mary, who is just months old.
