About a month ago, it was reported that former NBA player Allen Iverson had three days to come up with over $70,000 dollars in back child support or he would be facing jail time.
Wanting no part of the clinker, Iverson apparently paid up – this according to TMZ:
TMZ broke the story … Iverson’s ex, Tawanna, has been trying to collect child support from the b-baller since their divorce was finalized in February, but no cigar. Then, last month she asked a judge to throw him in jail, if he continued to dodge the bill: $8,000 / month for the last 5 months.
In new court docs — filed last month in Fulton County, GA — Iverson said he never paid the money because he was led to believe he and Tawanna would reconcile.
Taking a hard stance a judge ordered Iverson pony up the cash within 72 hours … or be arrested.
The original report was that the former Philadelphia 76ers guard owed $71,000 dollars, but either that number was reduced to $40,000 dollars or incorrectly reported.
Either way, it’s a lot of cash in a quick amount of time.
