Allen Iverson
's estranged wife is frightened of her husband -- claiming the NBA legend has been harassing her and her family ... and now, she wants a restraining order.

Tawanna Iverson just filed legal docs in the couple's bitter divorce battle -- claiming Allen "has engaged in increasingly contemptuous, threatening, and disturbing behavior" over the last few months ... and she's afraid things will get worse.

Tawanna is asking for a judge to issue a protective order stat. It's unclear whether she wants Iverson to stay away physically, or just stop harassing her.

Tawanna also claims Allen is hiding big money from her -- and she wants a judge to stop him.

Calls to Allen's camp were not returned.

And the last, most important part of this post...he's hiding money from her. What a money grubbing whore! More importantly, Harvey Levin is a homosexual. He is obviously mentally ill and needs help. What a pervert!

It looks like this broad could take care of herself, you know what I'm saying? She has that look, scary and she does look like Houston's daughter.

Wow, what a shocker, she needs a restraining order against this thug piece of trash. Nobody saw that coming. Let me be perfectly clear: Allen Iverson always has been and always will be nothing more than a piece of ghetto trash!

I waited on Allen Iverson once at a bar. He's from where I live. His mother tried to pick up the tab, but her credit card was declined. At least he's not just hiding the money from his wife...

I'm not taking sides because I don't personally know these people however I notice that these divorces get real ugly when these women don't have there own to fall back on. This is why they need to stop trying to live like a basketball wife and take the time to make investments or get a college education. This is so tacky the back and forth with these two and the battle for money.

Thanks to the reporting of Stephen A. Smith, we know of Allen Iverson numerous character issues.....

Too bad this woman chose to mix genes with such an undesirable POS..... The offthugs will be wards of the state shortly.

Funny how small of a percentage of celebrities (especially athletes and rappers) turn out to be decent human beings.
