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. 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. Sometimes love looks funny. We are told to make sacrifices in life if it’s true love well in this case it’s me. I want to see happy Hank again… i miss that. Marriage was just a piece of paper and a piece of jewelry but our hearts will always be real. U will prob see us together a lot but it’s because there’s no hate. Love wins in this case it’s just looks a little funny. Thank you Hank for a beautiful 8 years of marriage and 2 beautiful kids. I feel so thankful and blessed. ❤️
The news comes on the heels of a series of bizarre posts from the reality star where she hinted that she would soon file for divorce.
As Radar reported, Wilkinson tweeted on April 2 that it would be the “saddest, scariest day of my life.” She also claimed it was the day her “rebirth” would begin.
The mother of two then shared a video of her sobbing on her Instagram story, confessing that she was “scared.”
On Friday, Wilkinson said “fear has gotten in the way” of the couple’s marriage.
“We are both amazing parents and our kids will be happy and never know the difference other than seeing mama smile,” said Hugh Hefner’s ex.
Wilkinson also claimed she wants to see Hank happy.
As Radar readers know, Wilkinson, 32, and Baskett, 35, have been having issues for quite some time. In 2015, Radar was the first to break the news that Baskett cheated on the blonde beauty with a transsexual model.
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.
“Thank you Hank for a beautiful 8 years of marriage and two beautiful kids,” she wrote. “I feel so thankful and blessed.”
