Allen Iverson’s Wife Files For Divorce

Posted by Media Outrage on March 4, 2010

Allen Iverson’s wife Tawanna has filed for divorce:

A week after the Philadelphia 76ers’ Allen Iverson announced he was leaving basketball for the rest of the season to be with his sick 4-year-old daughter, the star’s wife filed for divorce in Fulton County Superior Court.

In the divorce petition filed on Tuesday, Tawanna Iverson said her 8 ½-year-long marriage to the guard was “irretrievably broken.” In the petition, Tawanna Iverson asked for temporary and permanent custody of their five children as well as child support and alimony.

She did not ask for a specific dollar amount.

The children range in ages from 17 months to 15 years.

The children and their parents have lived in north Atlanta since August, according to the court filing. Before that, the family claimed homes in Rochester, Mich.; Englewood, Colo.; Denver, Colo.; and Villanova, Pa.

On Feb. 22, Allen Iverson and the 76ers announced that he was leaving the team for personal reasons.

The former NBA MVP and four-time scoring champion said he wanted to be in Atlanta to be with his daughter, Messiah, who had an undisclosed illness.

In a posting on Twitter, Allen Iverson wrote: “I need to be there to hold my little girl’s hand and encourage her to get better. I wanted her to wake up every morning and see her Daddy’s face, at least until she got better. Through God’s Strength, She Will Keep Getting Better!”

Prior to that announcement, Iverson had missed five games and the All-Star Game to be with his family.

The team said Tuesday, the day the divorce petition was filed, that lverson would not return to the team this season.

“After discussing the situation with Allen, we have come to the conclusion that he will not return to the Sixers for the remainder of the season, as he no longer wishes to be a distraction to the organization and teammates that he loves very deeply,” 76ers general manager Ed Stefanski said. “It has been very difficult for Allen and the team to maintain any consistency as he tries to balance his career with his personal life.”

        Emily I am sorry it happen to you, but no I am not ashamed of myself at all. AL is a whore monger,drunk and gambler. I know for a fact each year when the freshman women come to Hampton University he is there and goes away with at least three jumpoffs. He has been spotted in more than one casino drunk when he should be playing. Case in point he said he needed to leave the 76’ers for his daughter, and yet he was co-hosting a party with Luda.

        Don’t make his burden your burden, I am sure whatever happen to you had nothing to do with cheating,drinking, gambling. Old girl had enough of his shit period.

      llen Iverson recently took a leave of absence from the Philadelphia 76ers to care for his sick 4 year old daughter Messiah, but over the weekend he was spotted partying at the CIAA Tournament in Charlotte.
      Message boards and Twitter were aflame with A.I. sightings in clubs all over Charlotte, many condemning him for abandoning his child during her time of need. The question: Should Allen be partying if he can’t go to work? And is he being a neglectful father?

      P.S I got this off another site, and the correction i need to make is he was co-hosting with Jermain Dupree. Go to scroll down click on the link and see if there is not a party invitation with AL face and event info.

    She couldn’t wait? Sheesh! LOL!

    At least let the little girl get better. I mean it’s wrong for him to have this unnecessary stress-factor when he’s dealing with that. In my opinion anyway.

    Didn’t she file for divorce before?

    Well it’s been reported that their marriage has been on the rocks for a while now. Hopefully, they can still remain mature about the situation, after the dissolution of their marriage. Wish them all the best.
