Things have been rough for Kendra Wilkinson. The 32-year-old former Playboy model announced that her dog, Martini, has passed away. “Martini has been by my side for 16 years. We will miss her,” Kendra wrote on Instagram. “This is one dog that has seen [and] been through it all. Lol from San Diego to the Playboy mansion, to the east coast to Calabasas, I can say she lived her best life. #ripMartini.”
Kendra then took to Twitter to share a gut-wrenching story about the pooch’s final days. “Martini became friends with a black crow these last couple weeks,” Kendra said. “[The] crow would come [and] sit [and] they’d stare for a long time. [The] Crow [came] today, [looked] for her, [and left].”
Martini’s death comes on the heels of Kendra’s heartbreaking split from her husband, Hank Baskett. The couple got married in 2009 and share two kids together — Hank IV, 8, and Alijah, 3. However, things weren’t always smooth sailing as cheating allegations plagued their relationship in 2014 when trans model, Ava London, claimed she had an affair with Hank while Kendra was pregnant for the second time.
Even though they seemed to work through the cheating scandal, Kendra exclusively told In Touch that marriage is hard because there will always be temptations. “We have already threatened divorce probably five times,” she said in June 2017.
“At the end of the day, the downside of being married is the temptation all around. You know, the sexual temptations. I am not going to lie — I am a sexual person. I am a 32-year-old person, and sometimes the temptation calls. My fantasies are very strong, let’s just leave it like that.” Since finalizing their split, Kendra has been spending time with her kids, her friends, and focusing on herself.
