“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,” Wilkinson continued. “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.”

Basket and Wilkinson have two children together: son Hank IV, 8, and daughter Alijah, 3.

“Thank you Hank for a beautiful 8 years of marriage and 2 beautiful kids. I feel so thankful and blessed,” the caption said.

On Monday, E! News reported, Wilkinson posted several videos on her Instagram story that signaled she was nearing the end of her marriage.

“Ten years. I did everything I could. It wasn’t good enough,” Wilkinson said as she cried. “I will always love him and my heart will always remain open for him. I believed in forever, I really did. Guess it’s just not meant to be. I’m so scared, but I have to get strong for my kids — I will.”

Baskett, a former football player, married Wilkinson in 2009 at the Playboy Mansion. In 2014, Baskett allegedly had an affair while Wilkinson was eight months pregnant with Alijah.

Wilkinson previously opened up about marital problems in a Feb. 21 Instagram post. It has since been deleted.
