When Vivid Entertainment obtained the sex tape of NFL star Hank Baskett’s ex-Playboy model wife, Kendra Wilkinson, and a former boyfriend, many wondered what not only the existence of the sex tape would do to the young marriage but also what the release of a sex tape video to the public would do to said marriage. Â The internet went wild with speculation. Â Many thought it spelled trouble, perhaps divorce. Â But a source close to the family told Radar Online that Philadelphia Eagles star Hank Baskett is okay with the sex tape…
A close friend of Hank Baskett and Kendra Wilkinson told the celebrity gossip website that Hank Baskett has been pretty understanding about the entire sex tape situation. Â “This happened when she was young,” the source said. Â “He already knew about this. She told him about this before they got married.”
Hank Baskett and Kendra Wilkinson met after she had become a Playboy model and a regular on the E! Television show “The Girls Next Door,” which chronicled the lives of women at the Playboy mansion.
The source also told Radar Online that Kendra told Hank Baskett that she was young when the tapes were made and had thought she loved Justin Frye, her boyfriend and sex partner in the tape. Â She thought they would be married and be together forever.
The friend also said that Baskett knew about the “secret” deal the former Playboy model-turned-reality-tv-star to cash in on “Kendra Exposed.” Â Although she had publicly said she was attempting to block the release of the sex tape video, Wilkinson reported raked in $680,000 in advance and got an agreement where she would get 50% of the profits from the sales from Vivid.
It is not clear whether or not the advance included dealings for other tapes, one of which Vivid is said to have in its possession.
It would seem that Hank Baskett may have millions of reasons to be okay with a sex tape video that was made before he met his wife.
Vivid predicted that “Kendra Exposed” might become their best-selling sex tape video ever, even surpassing the sales of videos like their best-selling Pam Anderson and Kim Kardashian sex tape videos.
Because of the demand, Vivid moved up the release date of their sex tape video to May 26. Â “Kendra Exposed” quickly became the #1 video torrent in the U.S. Â According to RightTV.com, with preorders included, “Kendra Exposed” is now the biggest selling sex tape video ever.
Radar Online’s source said that Hank and Kendra Baskett’s marriage is holding up fine.
