Allen Iverson

Throw My Wife in Jail!!!

5/30/2012 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

NBA legend Allen Iverson believes his wife should be locked up for ransacking his house while he was out of the country -- this according to new legal docs.

A.I. recently filed a motion for contempt in Georgia against his estranged wife Tawanna Iverson, claiming he had a basketball gig in Asia earlier this month ... and when he returned home, his house was totally gutted.

According to the docs, Iverson's wife infiltrated his home while he was gone -- pillaging furniture, art, memorabilia ... and a large sum of cash.

Iverson says he's asked Tawanna several times to return the stuff -- but so far, she's refused. Tawannna and A.I. have been warring since she filed for divorce last year. Last month she requested a restraining order, claiming her ex was harassing and threatening her.

Now, A.I. wants a judge to hold Tawanna in contempt for harassing him ... and throw her in jail ... at least until she returns the stolen goods. He also wants an order barring her from entering the home.

The judge has yet to rule.

NOT stolen goods if that was her house, too and there was not court order barring her from the home or its contents.

Of course the courts should take his word for it. Who wouldn't trust a nice, upstanding looking young man like that with a neck tattoo?

Here's another reason not to get married. Especially, to someone that has tested as almost retarded.

I think they already had 3 kids when he got drafted first overall in 1996, he really had no choice.

AI had a huge gambling issue in Detroit, and actually got banned from many of the casinos, he blew most of his money, and last I heard was playing overseas for pennies on the dollar of what he used to earn, same with a guy like Steve Francis, who at one point was making $18M per season...

Did we forget about the time he chased her out of their home with a Gun Naked. I guess the mother of his children has put on a few pounds from you know child-bearing and the stress of Divorce... Also, Some of you have this misconstrued with dating, where if you provide for someone it is a kind favor. We are talking MARRIAGE, if he married her and she wasnt working then who are we to judge these peoples choices... #Nobody #The Covenant #Provider

straight outta compton...crazy mfer named tawana! (and allen for god's sake) both of these ghetto skid marks make me tired and worried for the future of humanity.

I think people should lay off Tawana, simply because there is a lot more she could be saying and doing but she isnt. She was never in the spot light seeking attention or fame and that certainly is a far cry from all the other so called "BBW"..

if she did do what AI said she did,then yes she should either return the things or go to jail,if the shoe was on the other foot he would be in jail right now as we speak

They'll rule against her simply because she is a black woman, when he was obviously the one in the wrong. Men, especially those p u n k s in Georgia have gotten to the point now where they lie on black women by capitalizing with white folks on that "angry black woman" myth. The ABW Card.
