At the same time she also posted a cryptic tweet on Monday: “Today will be the saddest, scariest day of my life. Today i will have to be the strongest I’ve ever been. Today, my rebirth begins.”

The Glamour model and TV personality married Baskett, 35, in June 2009. They have two children together — Hank IV, 8, and Alijah, 3. The former model revealed in recent months the pair were having marital problems. Last week, the reality star posted a series of selfies with heartbreaking captions. She was also spotted not wearing her wedding ring.

"I need to love myself again, and I will," she wrote at one point. "Life is too precious."

Wilkinson rose to fame on E!'s 'Girls Next Door,' which followed three live-in girlfriends of late Playboy founder Hugh Hefner.

She moved out of the Playboy Mansion to marry Baskett, but their marriage was swirled with rumors of Baskett cheating. The former NFL player allegedly had an affair while Wilkinson was eight months pregnant with their daughter. The couple remained together, determined to make their marriage work despite the cheating scandal.

E! News reported that Wilkinson and Baskett have been having problems for years.

“Things have been at an all-time low recently," a source told E! News. "Kendra wants out of the marriage and is planning to file for divorce soon. She wants to make sure she is making the right decision for her family, but has truly hit a breaking point."
