Kendra Wilkinson, Hank Baskett Sex Scandal Truth: former Philadelphia Eagles star Finally Reveals the True Story Behind His Sex Scandal

Kendra Wilkinson’s husband finally revealed the truth behind his alleged cheating scandalwith a transgender model named Ava London. According to a report from People, Hank Baskettadmitted that he messed up with regard to the controversy that almost ruined his family last year.

Last June, rumors swirled that Hank had cheated on his wife with Ava Sabrina. Kendra, in turn, kicked Hank out of the house, took off her wedding ring, and met with divorce lawyers.

But the reality stars’ relationship is now better than ever, thanks in part to their time on Marriage Boot Camp. Hank finally admitted to Kendra the truth about the cheating scandal, and now he is coming clean to the public, as well.

Hank told People that the drama started when he tried to buy marijuana from a couple he met in a parking lot. They told him to show up at an address. Once he arrived at the home, he asked to use the restroom, and it was there that he encountered Ava Sabrina London and another transgender woman making out. Hank says that Ava Sabrina then came over and touched him through his clothes.

“I didn’t engage in anything,” Hank said. “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.”

So if Hank Baskett didn’t cheat on Kendra Wilkinson, why didn’t he admit the truth sooner? The former Philadelphia Eagles star admitted he was embarrassed by what happened.

“I was this big former football player,” he continued. “I was the alpha male. I could do anything to protect my family but I couldn’t protect myself.”

The constant tabloid speculation about the cheating scandal made Hank even more reluctant to admit the truth. “It’s hard to defend yourself when people are making up lies,” he said. “You never know what someone is going to make up [next].”

When Kendra heard the rumors that Hank Baskett had cheated on her, she flipped out. Now that she knows the truth, she sympathizes with him. But she would have liked him to coome clean sooner.

“Hank was very naïve and gullible,” Kendra told the magazine. “He thinks everybody is his friend. That led him to the hell that we’ve lived. I don’t say the word ‘cheat.’ I can say he was not loyal to me. I don’t care about the act. I care about how he reacted to it and how I was told by the media what happened. That scarred me.”

Alleged audio tape of Hank offering Ava Sabrina money to keep quiet only further angered Kendra. But now that Kendra knows the truth about the cheating scandal, she realizes that Hank was only doing what he needed to do to protect himself.

“I wouldn’t have pissed off that predator either,” Kendra added. “I would have said, ‘I’ll give you the world, please don’t ruin my life.’”

Many fans think Ava Sabrina leaked the audio as part of an extortion attempt against Hank. In fact, Hank is now reportedly seeking legal action against the transsexual model. The pending litigation may be another reason Hank remained silent on the cheating scandal for so long.

It’s still unclear if Hank’s version of the truth is the whole story. But Kendra believes her husband. They’ve looked happier than ever on recent family outings, including a trip to the Kentucky Derby. Kendra has even put her wedding ring back on, and she’s trying to look at the positive side of the cheating scandal.

“I’m finding the trust again,” she concluded. “And I’m actually very happy Hank went through this now because he’s able to teach his son and his daughter what it’s like to make a mistake and what you do after making a mistake.”
