In 2014, we all heard the shocking news that Hank Baskett cheated on his wife, Kendra Wilkinson. Although rumors were floating around, the true story was never revealed. However, after a year of trying to put their marriage back together, the couple finally spoke the truth. So here it is:
Last April, Hank was suffering from depression and using alcohol and marijuana to help his condition. Hank encountered a couple smoking marijuana in a grocery store parking lot. He approached them to buy some pot. The couple gave him the number for their dealer. After calling the dealer and obtaining his address, he showed up to the home. Upon his arrival, Hank asked to use the restroom.
Hank told PEOPLE that the transgender woman who opened the door was nude and making out with another transgender woman.”I froze,” said Hank. The woman then approached Baskett and fondled him through the basketball shorts that he was wearing.
“I didn’t engage in anything,” he says. “It was like a bank robbery. You never know when you’ll freeze. I don’t know if it was a couple of seconds or 15 seconds, because all I was saying was get out, get out, get out.”
“I messed up,” a teary-eyed Baskett tells PEOPLE exclusively. “I put myself in a bad situation. And everything through me brought pain upon this family.”
Prior to Hank coming clean, Kendra went ballistic,”I couldn’t control my emotions,” she told PEOPLE. Kendra flushed her wedding rings down the toilet and threatened divorce on her show, Kendra On Top. But once Hank built up the courage to tell Kendra what really happened, she was understanding, and sympathetic. “Hank was very naïve and gullible,” she said. “He thinks everybody is his friend. That led him to the hell that we’ve lived.”
The couple worked out their issues and has moved on with their marriage.
