NBA: Allen Iverson May Face Prison Over Unpaid Child Support Worth $40K

Jun 10 2013, 2:49am CDT | by

Former NBA superstar Allen Iverson is embroiled in a court battle with his ex-wife over unpaid child support which amounts to roughly $40,000.

Former Philadelphia 76er Allen Iverson may face imprisonment over unpaid child support.

The Inquisitr reports Iverson's ex-wife, Tawanna, is claiming he owes over $40,000 in child support. In January, courts forced Iverson to pay $8,000 a month for their five children. Tawanna is saying Iverson never made any of the payments. 

Upon the finalization of their divorce in February, a family court judge ruled in favor of maternal custody and said Iverson has no idea of what it's like to be a father. 

"[Iverson] does not know how to manage the children; has little interest in learning to manage the children and has actually, at times, been a hindrance to their spiritual and emotional growth and development. For example, he has refused to attend to an obvious and serious alcohol problem, which has caused him to do inappropriate things in the presence of the children while impaired. He has left the children alone without supervision. He has left his young daughters in a hotel room with men who are unknown to the mother."

TMZ states Allen and Tawanna are set to be in court this week, where the ex-wife wants Iverson to pay the $40,000 he owes her for child support and even suggest that Iverson be put behind bars for his actions. 

Iverson also paid $3 million to Tawanna in a divorce settlement

He played in the NBA from 1996-2010, averaging 26.7 points, 3.7 rebounds and 6.2 assists per game. He won the 1997 NBA Rookie of the Year Award and was the 2001 NBA MVP. He was named to the All-NBA Team seven times.

Oct 14 2014 12:45pm CDT | Source: dime mag

Michael Carter-Williams won the 2013 NBA Rookie of the Year award in pretty decisive fashion. Part of this was the dearth of talent in the 2013 NBA Draft, and part of it was Williams’ stellar rookie campaign for a dreadful Sixers team. So it’s with mild shock, we read — per Grantland’s Zach Lowe — […] The post Report: Sixers Tried To Trade Michael Carter-Williams During Draft appeared first on Dime Magazine (dimemag.com) : Daily NBA News, NBA Trades, NBA Rumors, Basketball ...

#SLAMTop50: Eric Bledsoe, no. 47

Sep 24 2014 11:00am CDT | Source: slamonline

There is perhaps no player in today’s NBA player who has more questions surrounding his immediate and long-term future than Eric Bledsoe. Is he worth a max contract? Where will he play this season? Can he stay healthy? And those are just the most obvious, over-arching questions. Never mind the doubts about whether he can co-exist over the long haul with fellow ball-dominating guard Goran Dragic, the endless arguments about what position Bled really should be playing, or the ...

Chauncey Billups was way better than all 16 players traded for him

Sep 10 2014 8:54am CDT | Source: SBNation

Chauncey Billups bounced around the NBA before establishing himself as an All-Star guard during an illustrious 17-year career. All of those teams that traded him should be kicking themselves. Chauncey Billups was not particularly productive early in his career. The same could be said for any number of high draft picks, some of whom go on to illustrious careers. But the difference between Billups and the rest is that the Colo ...

Bill Belichick led a characteristically somber press conference after the Patriots’ 33-20 loss in Miami. “We didn’t do anything well enough that we need to do in a game — all the way across the board,” he said. “We’ve got to get back to work and prove in every phase of the game: playing, coaching, offense, defense, special teams — you name it.” “I just don’t think we played well enough, coached well enough, or really do anything well enough,” he later answered. After that, the presser ...

If you made a list of the top trash talkers in the NFL, Peyton Manning would probably be near the bottom.
