Allen Iverson

I Wanna Pull the Plug

On My Divorce

NBA legend Allen Iverson is trying to slam the brakes on his divorce -- insisting he and his estranged wife have recently bumped uglies ... so her petition is null and void.

Iverson filed a motion to dismiss last week in his pending divorce case, claiming he and his wife Tawanna had temporarily reconciled from November 2011 to February 2012 -- and had "resumed their marital relationship, cohabiting, having sexual relations and holding themselves out as husband and wife."

According to Iverson, that's enough for a judge to throw out Tawanna's divorce petition -- on grounds the marriage isn't "irretrievably broken" ... as she had claimed.

It's unclear if Iverson actually wants to get back together with Tawanna -- the former NBA player's legal move might simply be an attempt to delay paying support.

A judge has yet to rule.

The comments about how his wife looks is irrelevant, he married her and his wife and kids are his responsibility. A man's responsibility to family does not change because he is wealthy and can afford to sleep with many women. He needs to take care of his children and stop the childish games........time to grow up!
