Wife of NBA Star Allen Iverson Files for Divorce in Fulton County

Ever since he first stepped on a professional basketball court, NBA legend and certain hall-of famer Allen Iverson has been a media mainstay, having been a scoring champion, most valuable player and marketing magnet.

Iverson's career has tapered off recently, but that has had little impact on his enduring tabloid presence. Over the past 15 months, Iverson is garnering more media ink for his on and off -- and now, on again -- divorce goings-on than for anything associated with a basketball arena.

Iverson and his high-school girlfriend married in 2001, and now have five children. Tawanna Iverson filed for divorce in Fulton County Superior Court in March of last year, stating that the couple's marriage was "irretrievably broken."

She subsequently dropped her divorce petition, after Iverson left the pro game temporarily to be with one of the couple's children who was sick.

And then, last Monday, she filed again, citing the same reason for seeking dissolution.

Tawanna Iverson is asking for sole legal and physical custody of the children, as well as child support, spousal maintenance payments and an equitable share of the couple's assets.

Those assets could be substantial, given Iverson's stature and long-term presence in a professional league known for paying its superstars many millions of dollars each season. Although Iverson is currently out of the NBA, he signed a two-year contract for $4 million last autumn to play with a pro club in Turkey.
