Judge Calls Allen Iverson a Bad Parent

The war between NBA legend Allen Iverson and his ex-wife may be over, but his custody issues seem to be just beginning.

A family court judge in Atlanta, who awarded Iverson’s ex Tawanna Iverson full legal and physical custody of the couple’s five children, layed into the all-star baller, calling him a terrible parent and requiring him to attend AA meetings.

“[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,” the judge started.

“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 continued.  ”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.”

Besides Alcoholics Anonymous, the judge has required Iverson to see a shrink to deal with his emotional issues. In addition, the former NBA player cannot drink alcohol for the next 18 months and until his children have reached the age of adulthood, he is forbidden from drinking within 24 hours of seeing his kids.

Iverson’s life since high school has been a string of disappointments, run-ins with the law and confrontations with authority. Still, the baller was one of the most electrifying players an NBA court has ever seen.

Hopefully, The Answer can get his life back on track for the sake of his kids.

Allen Iverson Seeking to Have Estranged Wife Arrested

The tables have turned — again — in the divorce drama between Allen Iverson and his ex-wife Tawanna.

A few months ago, the NBA player was asking a judge to call off his divorce, saying that he and Tawanna had reconciled (sort of) and resumed “normal” husband-wife relations. Last month Tawanna filed a restraining order against AI, claiming he had been harassing and threatening her. Now, TMZ reports the former Philadephia 76ers MVP wants the court to lock her up and throw away the key.

Iverson claims in court papers that Tawanna ransacked his Atlanta, Georgia home while he was overseas, stealing memorabilia, art, furniture, other knick-knacks and a large sum of cash, and now he wants her arrested for contempt, at least until she gives him his stuff back.

The couple, who met in high school and have five children, have seen their marriage dissolve over the past year amid allegations of infidelity and harassment. Clearly there’s still passion between these two, so we say give it a shot on Couples Therapy! If that doesn’t work, they should hang up the gloves for good.

Allen Iverson’s Estranged Wife Claims Harassment

Looks like the divorce is still on between Allen Iverson and his ex Tawanna. The NBA all-star’s estranged wife claims he’s been harassing her to the point of fearing for her safety, and now she’s seeking a restraining order, TMZ reports.

Tawanna filed legal documents in court over the weekend, claiming Iverson “has engaged in increasingly contemptuous, threatening, and disturbing behavior” in recent months, and she wants court protection starting immediately.

Just a month ago, Iverson made a bid to stop the divorce proceedings, claiming he and Tawanna had reconciled their differences and were “cohabiting” and having “sexual relations” as late as February 2012.  Tawanna, meanwhile, demanded a list of all the other home fries Allen had been creepin’ on during their 10-year marriage. She also claims Iverson has been hiding cash from her, and wants him to disclose his true assets in court, presumably so she can get the better half.

The couple first began dating in high school and have five children together.

Allen Iverson Facing Foreclosure

Published by Runteldat on Monday, March 7, 2011 at 11:50 am.

The sad state of affairs for former NBA star Allen Iverson just gets even sadder.  He was long rumored to be facing money woes, and now comes a new report that his Denver-area home is slipping into foreclosure.

The Denver Post reports that Iverson has stopped paying the mortgage on the 6,848-square-foot six-bedroom, nine-bathroom spread he purchased in January 2008 for over $3 million.

The home was actually placed on the market recently and is expected to close on April 8. However, because he owes a balance of $2,572, 914 to Wells Fargo Bank on the mortgage, trouble, trouble still awaits his credit score.

Should the sale go through, Iverson will still have to pay attorney fees, foreclosure cost and default interest – all things someone without a job probably can’t afford.

Can someone get him a reality show already? Or some new legs? I’d say a rap contract, but I remember that one single he had. Yeah, that won’t work, so let’s shoot for something else. Anything really.

I hate to see this dude go out like this.
