Iverson Divorce -- 'Nothing to Do with Another Woman'

6/18/2011 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Allen Iverson's soon-to-be ex-wife says she NEVER caught the NBA star with another woman during their marriage ... and tells TMZ she's simply filing for divorce because "sometimes people grow apart."

TMZ spoke with Tawanna Iverson ... who tells us despite widespread rumors, "Cheating in the marriage has never been an issue. My decision to divorce has nothing to do with another woman."

Tawanna -- who described her 10-year marriage in divorce papers as "irretreivably broken" -- explains, "Sometimes people just grow apart and it's just that simple."

She adds, "Many people want this to be more complicated than that and it's not."

TMZ dont like me    

A.I.'s paper stacks are getting lower and lower, each day. She's jumping ship now that there's no more income coming in....There's a big reason why he's talking about coming outta retirement and getting back into the NBA.

Allen Iverson is human filth, the only creature below him in civility is the dog killer, Michael Vick.

If you ever want to know why sports have deteriorated over the years....look at these two failures of evolution.

How refreshing to see someone who doesn't want to air their dirty laundry (whether or not it's philandering). Way to go, Mrs. Iverson.

Ellis, look in the mirror and then make such idiotic comments. These people are human and flawed, much like yourself. Sports performance has nothing to do with that. We all make mistakes, much like your parents did. Michael Vick did his time and AI performed well when in the NBA. They don't owe you anything.

This is refreshing....a spouse who isn't bad-mouthing her soon-to-be-ex. Sad that their marriage didn't work out though, it takes a lot of consistent effort...if only people thought of that before marrying, the divorce rate wouldn't have reached epic proportions.

Atta girl Dee, slide right on down that evolutionary scale with filth like Vick and Iverson. No need to make Yo'momma comments though, that's unnecessary.

Your writing seems OK but I'm guessing that when you're with your homegirls....this becomes dis, that becomes dat and month becomes munt.

Try to do better, OK

Tammy    

So, they just grew apart and she feels that she deserves SOLE LEGAL AND PHYSICAL CUSTODY?! Liar!! In a marriage where people grow apart, one parent doesn't do a thing so petty, vindictive and selfish. She's trying to punish him with that move!!

Loveit!    

In the Philly area there are so many stories of him cheating. I knew someone that he hit on and tried to bring home while stopped at a red light. We're not idiots... no need to air the dirty laundry... no need to lie either.

@ Ellis I never cease to be amazed by people with superiority complexes who come up with the most ridiculous asinine theories.I mean AI and Vick are single handedly responsible for the demise of sports? Let's be real. Male athletes in general (and yes white ones too)have done their share of juvinile dirt. No one group is above stupidity. If anything, we keep on seeing case after case of white guys in high positions being caught with their pants down. PLease take a good look at the world around you.
