The wife of former NBA player Allen Iverson has filed for divorce for the secondtime in 15 months, according to a report by a prominent celebrity news site.
Tawanna Iverson, who filed for divorce last year but then dropped it, refiled at a Fulton County, Georgia, court, claiming her marriage was “irretrievably broken.” The media outlet said she is asking for child support and alimony payments as well as a share of the property and money accumulated during their 10-year union.
In addition, Tawanna Iverson is requesting sole legal and physical custody of the couple’s five children, reported the source.
Iverson is an 11-time NBA All-Star player, including a two-time All-Star MVP, an award which he won in 2001 and 2005. Iverson also won the NBA MVP award for the 2000-2001 season and helped bring the Philadelphia 76ers to the NBA Finals that year. The famous point guard also played for the Denver Nuggets, Detroit Pistons and the Memphis Grizzlies.
In October, Iverson signed a two-year contact with a Turkish Basketball League, although published reports state he hopes to return to the NBA next season.
