Allen Iverson's Estranged Wife

He's Buying Diamonds ...

And I Can't Pay Rent!

12/10/2011 5:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Allen Iverson & Tawanna
Allen Iverson's divorce has taken a nasty turn -- according to his estranged wife, the former NBA star went on a massive spending spree after she filed for divorce, leaving her completely penniless.

Tawanna just filed new docs in their bitter divorce battle -- claiming ever since she filed for divorce in June, Allen stopped depositing money in their joint bank account ... and then made several large cash withdrawals, including one for $20,000 ... which he spent on diamond jewelry.

Tawanna claims the account was $23,000 in the red at the time she filed the court docs -- and she's been unable to pay the bills ... or provide for their 5 kids.

According to Tawanna -- who says she gave up her career to be a stay-at-home mom -- Allen is worth over $20 million ... and refuses to help her out simply out of spite.

Allen denies Tawanna's allegations in the docs -- and since they're at a stalemate ... the judge will have to play peacemaker.  So far, no hearing date has been set.

What was she thinking to open her uterus and pop out 5 kids to this dumbazz. Women stop. stay on pills or use condoms betchas or plan for those kids before you open your legs. ENOUGH.

Who are these people and why do I care? Besides, FIVE kids? Pure genius. Better get a J-O-B and stop your crying. I hear they're hiring burger flippers down the street.

People kill me with this way of thinking they should get the perks of having lots of money and nice things just because they "were" with someone they "no longer" with anymore. Get a job you lazy gold digger. imo he's not entitled to give her **** unless it's child support.

Curious about what kind of "career" she gave up. Being a bball groupie maybe? Looks like the gravy train is over for her and her freeloading family. Get a job

These guys are a breed unto themselves. They have no concept of "responsibility", parenting" being a "father", everything is about THEM. Then you have your liberal sociologist who blame the schools, poverty and racism for their crime invested, single parent households, unemployment, deplorable houses, drug addiction, off the chain drop-out and incarceration rates. I mean, think about it. Forget the fact that this POS is worth[monetarily] millions [actually he's not worth chit] it would take a fluke of nature for a kid to walk away from that situationist and have a modi*** of decency.

If those are his kids then be a man and pay up son. If she's suing for HER expenses then I say get off your lazy butt and get to working.
