Report: Iverson kidnapped own children

Boston Celtics v Philadelphia 76ers - Game Six Former Sixer Allen Iverson is reportedly facing legal problems again.

The ongoing saga centered around Allen Iverson’s divorce has taken another sharp and unexpected turn.

Iverson’s former wife, Tawanna, filed legal documents Monday claiming that the former Sixers star abducted his own children. According to, Iverson took the couple’s five children on vacation in Charlotte, NC (May 22-26) and didn’t return the kids to her custody. Iverson is reportedly keeping the kids in a hotel in Georgia.

Tawanna, who has sole legal and primary custody, is asking a judge to intervene and possibly put Iverson in jail. She previously asked a court to make Iverson pay more than $40,000 in back child support. Iverson has countered with legal documents to the contrary. Stay tuned, as always.
