Allen Iverson’s Wife Files For Divorce


March 4, 2010

ATLANTA — The same day the Philadelphia 76ers announced that guard Allen Iverson would not return for the rest of the season, his wife filed for divorce in Atlanta.

In papers filed Tuesday in Fulton County Superior Court, Tawanna Iverson said their 8 1/2-year marriage is "irretrievably broken," and is asking for full custody of the couple's five children, child support and alimony.

The youngest child is 17 months old and the oldest is 15.

After returning to the 76ers as a free agent in December, Iverson returned to Atlanta in February to be with his family as they deal with an undisclosed illness of his 4-year-old daughter, Messiah.
