Hank Baskett Sued

You Dirty (Gym) Rat!

Hank Baskett -- the ex-NFL player who fumbled away the 2010 Super Bowl -- has his hands full with a new legal problem ... all over his involvement with a high-end L.A. gym ... TMZ has learned.

Baskett -- aka Kendra Wilkinson's husband -- is being sued by a couple of businessmen who invested in his "Performance Gaines" gym ... co-owned by Baskett's personal trainer Travelle Gaines (hence the name). The gym opened last fall.

The guys behind the lawsuit -- Jory Wolf and Nicholas Lorenz -- claim they dumped six figures into the project before Baskett's name was even attached to it ... and got left high and dry with nothing to show for it.

Wolf and Lorenz are pointing the finger primarily at Gaines, claiming Gaines tricked them into investing their money by promising a 40% share in the "Performance Gaines" business ... and then yanked the rug from underneath them, giving away their shares to other partners.

According to the lawsuit, Baskett was one of those partners ... so his hands are dirty too.

Wolf and Lorenz are suing for unspecified damages.

Calls to Baskett and Gaines were not returned.

Hank Baskett should do a reality show with Cash Warren (Jessica Alba's unemployed husband). They could call the show A Brotha Needs Work. They could go on job interviews and see what kind of job they could actually get on their own and see what life is like when your wife doesn't pay for everything. The show could be hosted by Tori Spelling's husband Dean Mcdermott who also hasn't worked since meeting Tori

Baskett did not "fumble the 2010 Superbowl away." That was NOT the play that decided that Superbowl. The team the Colts were playing, The Saints won that Superbowl with their own superb playing, NOT because of a fumble of an onside kick by Hank Baskett in the 1st quarter of the 2nd half of the game. You are totally dissing the hard earned and well deserved win of Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints!

Looks like Kendra is struggling to support the family. Amazing, since she is so uneducated and appears
rather brainless.
