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.”

I'm assuming it was a long time coming. Sometimes when tramatic things happen or have happened in a family, marriages tend to fall apart rather than get stronger.

You think Iverson is going to let the Mother of his 5 children (with her) "not get jack" from him? Believe me, a guy who has made the type of dough as he has is going to have to pay a hell of a lot of child support (and some).

Also, you don't really know what's been going on in their marriage or life to say it's pathetic or a lowblow. Perhaps this is the best thing for both of them.

Yes she's the mother of their sick child.

But if you believe the stuff going around the web that AI was using this as an excuse to hook up with his "jumpoffs" and this pretty much was the last straw for her.

That being said I don't really feel bad for either of them she knew who she married.

The kids however have my regards.

I can hardly imagine a more difficult, laborious and unflattering career end for one of the best players of the last decade.

That's what I thought too.

No class, no sense of tact, and no shame. (I'm talking about AI too, in this case).

They both deserve each other.

I know she will but, I it just kind of ticks me off a little that your daughter is fighting for her life and you are filing for divorce. IF they want to separate cool but, they really need to focus on their daughter not trying to get child support and custody right now.

So in short not mad at the divorce mad at the timing when daughter is sick.

brutal. timing sucks.

i hope AI gets one more year in the NBA to wipe this last one away. Just play hard from the bench on a decent team and enjoy a farewell tour without this kind of drama.

After the payments, AI is going to make one of those comebacks (for money), but this time, it'll be for chump change and a minor role. He's going to need the paychecks after all those alimony and child support sucking him dry.

Medical and Lawyer payments are the worst kind because they just take your money fast and you basically have no choice but to pay them.

Allen Iverson's wife re-files for divorceShareThisPrint E-mail .By Alexis Stevens


The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

The wife of former NBA star Allen Iverson has re-filed for divorce, an attorney told the AJC.

Tawanna Iverson initially filed for divorce March 2, 2010, in Fulton County Superior Court, citing that her marriage was “irretrievably broken.” The announcement came a week after Allen Iverson announced he was leaving the Philadelphia 76ers for the rest of the season to be with a sick daughter. The couple has five children.

That divorce petition was later dropped, Allen Iverson's attorney, Jonathan Levine, told the AJC Wednesday afternoon. But on Monday, Tawanna Iverson re-filed for divorce, said Levine, who declined to discuss the specifics regarding the initial filing.

Tawanna Iverson's attorney, John Mayoue, was unavailable for comment.

Allen Iverson, a former NBA scoring champ and all-star, is currently playing professional basketball in Turkey. He has said publicly he would like to return to the NBA to finish his career.

On March 30, he was a passenger in his own 2007 Lamborghini Murcielago that was stopped by Atlanta police for switching lanes without signaling. Iverson became irate and shouted expletives at the police officer, according to a report obtained by the AJC.

The Lamborghini had a dealer tag, despite being owned by the basketball star for two years, and a tow truck was called.

"Take the vehicle, I have 10 more," he reportedly told the officer at the scene. "Police don't have anything else [expletive] to do except [expletive] with me. ... Do you know who I am?"

Iverson's vehicle remained in an impound lot Wednesday, Officer Kim Jones with Atlanta police told the AJC.
