According to the papers filed by Baskett on April 5, 2018 in Superior Court of California, he cites “irreconcilable differences” as a reason for the end of their marriage.
The couple request joint legal custody of their two minor children — son Hank Jr., 8 and daughter Alijah, 3.
Baskett and Wilkinson also decided to discuss spousal support at a later date. They “reserve for future determination the issue of support payable to Petitioner and Respondent,” the docs noted.
Baskett lists the date of marriage as June 27, 2009 and date of separation January 1, 2018. — 8 years and six months to be exact.
The former Playboy bunny made the shocking split announcement Friday afternoon in a heartbreaking Instagram post to her fans.
“Today is the last day of my marriage to this beautiful man,” she wrote to her nearly 3 million followers. “I will forever love Hank and be open but for now we have chosen to go our own ways.”
As RadarOnline.com readers know, Wilkinson, 32, and Baskett, 35, have been having issues for quite some time. In 2015, RadarOnline.com was the first to break the news that Baskett cheated on the blonde beauty with a transgender model.
Baskett denied any wrongdoing and claimed he froze when she started fondling him.
"I didn't engage in anything," he said at the time. "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."
The couple vowed to make marriage work. However, in recent years, the blonde beauty previously admitted she was going to counseling and the two had threatened divorce various times.
