Allen Iverson Can Go To Jail or Pay $71K in Child Support in 72 Hours


Well if that isn’t an ultimatum.

Facing jail time, former NBA superstar Allen Iverson has three days to pay over $71,000 dollars in back child support. If he doesn’t? An arrest warrant will be placed in his name.

Even worse though? Iverson informed his former wife that he had no intentions to pay the support despite recently receiving nearly $500,000 dollars.

Per Dennis Byron:

Yesterday, Fulton County Superior court judge Bensonneta Tipton-Lane (the same judge who presided over Usher Raymond’s custody case) held former NBA star Allen Iverson in Contempt of Court for violating an earlier custody and support order in which he was supposed to fork over $40,000 to his ex-wife Tawanna Iverson as well as enroll in a substance abuse class as a condition of his visitation with his children.

On cross-examination by attorney John Mayoue who represents Tawanna Iverson,  Iverson admitted that he told her that he had no intention of paying her child support despite the fact that he had just received $462,460.24 and thus had the ability to pay.

With those words from his mouth, Judge Lane held him in Contempt of Court and ordered him to pay a total $71,000.00 within 72 hours otherwise she directed the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office to place him under arrest and keep him in jail until the payment is made.

It’s your kids, A.I. – come on.

    Are you kidding me?! Allen Iverson doesn’t make a quarter of the money he used to make. This stupid BITCH Tawanna Iverson got 3 MILLION DOLLARS back in January, couple months later she wants $71,000 more? Newsflash lady, your ex-husband isn’t an NBA player anymore. You need to alter your life-style too. For god sakes $71,000 is more than what some families make combined(father and mother). Such a ungrateful SCUM! had it not been for Allen Iverson she would of been like every other mom with a 9 to 5 job and let me tell you, she wouldn’t be getting 71 grand in a matter of months, she’d have a hard time making that in a year. After all the millions she took from their divorce, the luxurious lifestyle Iverson gave her, she wants to send him to JAIL?! THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS !…………… FUCK YOU.

    Yeah I second what crossover33 says and honestly you think she’s really going to spend 75k on those kids? FOH yes a.I may be bad at money management but how the hell is he supposed to get back in his feet if she keeps taking him to court for everything he has. I’m sure A.I gets his kids what they need when they need it they’re probably never a phone call away from daddy to help them out of they need it
