The Allen Iverson child support drama continues. Allen Iverson and his ex-wife Tawanna have been in and out of court ever since the former NBA star and his high school sweetheart officially split. And it has been said A.I. is having money problems which has led to him allegedly not paying child support for their five kids. In addition to Allen supposedly not having the funds to make child support payments, his ex-wife filed court papers accusing A.I. of stealing their kids from her as she requested he be thrown in jail for not giving her their children back according to the agreement they made with each other. Allen Iverson denied the accusations made by his former wife and insisted he did nothing wrong.

Allen Iverson and his ex-wife Tawanna reportedly agreed to work on their co-parenting issues for the sake of their children. However, TMZ is reporting that Tawanna is growing tired of dragging Allen to court and is asking for a judge to make him pay child support for the next thirteen years right now, totaling a little over $1.2 million. Allen was ordered to pay $8,000 a month in child support for their five children and Tawanna has had to take him to court several times for allegedly not paying.

Things got ugly back in July when a judge threatened A.I. with jail time unless he paid back child support in the amount of $40,000. Although Allen paid the money, Tawanna isn’t trying to have the same issue with him again. This happens to be the reason why Tawanna filed legal documents requesting a judge require Allen to pay child support for 13 years in advance seeing as though their youngest child will be 18 years old by then. If the judge rules in Tawanna’s favor, Allen Iverson will have to pay his ex-wife $1,272,000 in child support and the money will be placed in a trust fund for the kids.



  1. She’s trying to pump blood out of a turnip. This guy’s career has been finished for a long time now and he was an idiot when he did have money. It’s has to be personal. She knows he doesn’t have sh-t.

      1. His handlers did that when he signed his Reebok deal. He is living off half of it now but can’t get the rest until his 50’s.

  2. If I were A.I. I’d pay that amount in a heartbeat! Sell whatever needed to be sold to get that whole situation out of my hair for good with the stipulation being that this be the final payment ever…. period. No increases, no courts, no nothing. I’d make that move in a heartbeat.

    Iverson has an account worth $32 million, a principal he is prohibited from touching until 55. In the meantime, it feeds him $1 million annually.

    At 45, Iverson is eligible to start drawing on an NBA pension that maxes out at 10 years of active duty, or take whatever’s there as lump sum. He will be entitled roughly to $8,000 per month ($800 per x 10).

    If at all possible, Iverson will issue a restraining order against himself until he’s 62 or so. At that time his lump sum will be between $1.5 million and $1.8 million, or he can elect to take monthly checks of approximately $14,000 per.

    So… errrm… yeah. 1.2 mil? I’m definitely doing that.
