Hugh Hefner is reportedly in Kendra Wilkinson’s corner.
According to Contact Music, the famed adult magazine publisher has reached out to his ex-girlfriend several times amid her estranged husband’s cheating scandal.
An inside source close to Hefner spoke briefly with US Weekly about Wilkinson.
“He told her to come to the Playboy Mansion any time. He’s been supportive and hates that Kendra is going through this,” a source explained.
For those who missed it, Wilkinson’s husband, former NFL player Hank Baskett, became the center of shocking allegations when transsexual model Ava Sabrina London came forward with details about their alleged affair.
The former Girls Next Door reality TV star was eight months pregnant with their second child when the story broke. London told the National Enquirer Baskett contacted her after seeing one of her videos on YouTube.
“I met Hank Baskett probably around the 22nd or 23rd of April this year,” she told the publication. “He contacted me through a video I had posted on YouTube and we exchanged information.”
Hefner dated the 29-year-old glamour model for four years before their split in 2008. Ironically, Wilkinson married Baskett on June 27, 2009 at the Playboy Mansion. They have two children together – a four-year-old son, Hank Baskett IV, 4 and a 7-week-old daughter, Alijah Mary Baskett.
It has been rumored that Wilkinson is planning to file for divorce, but she has yet to speak publicly about the situation. The mother-of-two reportedly “flipped out” after discovering mysterious, unexplained charges on her husband’s credit card back in June. Friends of Wilkinson claim she is “still in shock” and “inconsolable” over Baskett’s affair.
A source close to London gave a brief statement in regards to her “fling” with Baskett. “This was a one-time affair,” the source insisted. However, one time was more than enough because the damage is apparently done.
