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.
