Kendra Wilkinson Baskett's Husband Hank Responds to Her Divorce Filing
In the former NFL player’s filing submitted Friday — the same day that Wilkinson, 32, filed for divorce from her husband of nearly nine years — Baskett also cited irreconcilable differences like Wilkinson, according to court documents obtained by The Blast.
Mirroring Wilkinson’s filing, Baskett, 35, also listed their date of separation as Jan. 1, 2018, and requested joint legal and physical custody of their two children: son Hank IV, 8, and daughter Alijah Mary, 3.
According to the documents, Baskett requested “reserve for future determination the issue of support payable to” both parties.
The former Playboy model’s filing came hours after she confirmed in an Instagram post that the couple had chosen to split.
“Today is the last day of my marriage to this beautiful man. I will forever love Hank and be open but for now we have chosen to go our own ways,” she captioned a photo of herself and Baskett on Friday. “I’m beyond sad and heartbroken because I did believe in forever, that’s why I said yes but unfortunately too much fear has gotten in the way. We are both amazing parents and our kids will be happy n never know the difference other than seeing mama smile.”
