Allen Iverson had an impressive career in the NBA and earned millions, but reports are now that he’s basically broke.
The former NBA ball player, who lost his Atlanta mansion to foreclosure earlier this year, and his ex-wife Tawanna Iverson went through a years long divorce battle that seemed to never end.
The pair finally came to an agreement and called it quits late last year, with Allen being admonished by a Fulton County judge about his bad parenting (click HERE if you missed that).
There were also stories about Iverson being negligent towards his children (including one where he left them at a hotel during a trip to a water park), and he has reportedly missed every single child-support payment due his ex-wife, Tawanna Iverson
Now the pair is back in the news after Iverson’s ex-wife claims that he’s basically kidnapped their kids and is keeping them held up in a Georgia hotel.
Former NBA star Allen Iverson has abducted his own children … so says his ex-wife, and now she’s begging the court to force Allen to give them back.
Tawanna Iverson just filed legal docs, claiming Allen recently asked for permission to take their five kids on a short vacation to Charlotte, NC from May 22nd-May 26th (and Tawanna agreed) but when May 26th rolled around, the children hadn’t been returned.
The kids range in age from 3 to 16 years old.
In the docs, Tawanna says she tried to set up an exchange on June 4th at a neutral location — a nearby Target store — but A.I. never showed up.
Tawanna — who has sole legal and primary physical custody of their children — now believes Allen never took their kids to Charlotte at all … and is currently keeping them at a Sheraton hotel in Georgia.
Tawanna claims she’s especially concerned because Allen’s an alcoholic who drinks around their kids.
She now wants the court to force him to return the kids … and punish him as well, even suggesting the judge throw his a$$ in jail.
What do you think of Allen Iverson’s sudden interest in his kids?
Should he be jailed for keeping them on an “extended” vacation?
