Has former NFL ace Hank Baskett been caught playing a game of “Hide the Pigskin (or in this case “Hide the Foreskin”) with a transgender bikini model?
Well, that depends on who’s telling the story: The Goss Watchers at RadarOnline have woven an intricate tale of sex, lies and YouTube with Kendra Wilkinson’s husband as the main character.
The Playboy bombshell’s five-year marriage to Baskett has been rocked by accusations that he cheated with Ava Sabrina London, a woman of trans-experience who’s found quite the fan following thanks to her penchant for uploading NC-17-rated videos to YouTube. That’s how Ava allegedly connected with Hank, Radar snitches say.
Baskett, 31, footed the bill for a secret rendezvous with Ava after watching her raunchy videos on the Web. Ava, who goes under the YouTube moniker Ava Masanai, has more than 50 videos of herself gyrating to music in assorted bikinis and lingerie. (Most of the videos are tagged “TS” — for transsexual. Ava even identifies herself as “TS Ava London.” Any man who reaches out to this woman knows what he’s signing up for.
An unidentified insider squeals:
“He called [Ava] twice before they met in person. He said he’d seen her YouTube videos online and he couldn’t believe that her photos were real.”
The source says Hank used a fake name to set up the date, which lasted less than 20 minutes. (Cue the laugh track.) At the time of the rumored hookup, a pregnant Kendra was only weeks away from giving birth to the couple’s first daughter, Alijah Mary. The baby joined son Hank Baskett Jr., 4, in May.
“Before leaving, he gave her almost $500 and told her he wanted to stay in touch.”
Telephone contact between Hank and Ava continued over the next few weeks. Hank reportedly sought to end things only after a Radar report (Oh, the irony…) surfaced romantically-linking Jennifer Lopez’s former boyfriend Casper Smart to two transsexual women he met online.
“After the Casper Smart transsexual controversy, he started to get freaked out and paranoid she would say something and called her six times in one day to plead with her not to spill.”
If Radar’s tattles are to believed Baskett’s been forking over fistfuls of cash to keep Ava’s pretty little lips pursed.
“He promised her $5000 to keep her mouth shut and even threatened to kill himself if the story got out.”
There’s talk of the one-time Philadelphia Eagles player leaving “$2000 in a coffee cup” in an effort to keep his Down Low brotha, extramarital dalliances on the hush.
Hank was last seen leaving the Los Angeles home he shares with his family with bags in tow. He spent the night in a hotel.
Wanna take a wild guess as to what drove him out of the house? The Baskett-Wilkinson marriage plays out on the WeTV reality soap Kendra on Top. The show’s most recent season has seen the couple spar over everything from the one-time Girl Next Door’s need to know Hank’s whereabouts at all times and the decision to welcome a second child.
