Allen Iverson

I'm Fighting My

Atlanta Mansion Foreclosure

12/9/2012 5:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1207-allen-iverson-gettyFormer NBA star Allen Iverson isn't just gonna stand by and watch while his Atlanta mansion hits the foreclosure auction block -- TMZ has learned he's already filed legal docs to put a stop to the sale.

TMZ broke the story ... Iverson's $4.5 million mansion was scheduled to go up for auction on December 4th after he allegedly defaulted on a $1.2 million mortgage.

But before the sale took place, Iverson quickly filed a lawsuit against the lender that's trying to take the home, claiming he never consented to the loan.

Iverson claims his estranged wife -- with whom he's going through a nasty divorce -- signed for the mortgage in order to screw him ... by agreeing to financial terms he couldn't meet.

The lawsuit has since put a hold on the foreclosure proceedings ... buying Iverson some extra time.

Calls to Iverson's camp and the lender he's suing have not been returned.

Allen Iverson has the same taste in home decor as my dead granny. Makes sense though, he's got the whitest white guy name in the history of white guy names.

Can't feel sorry for someone that made millions and millions of dollars and squandered it all away just like countless other athletes who don't have sh*t to show for it and get to this point and can't even afford the roof over their head. Pure stupidity and their own fault.

Give us a break - leave it to the LaLa lawyers to come up with an excuse like that - idiotic excuse. The house is in default - period - regardless so it who ends up paying..WE ALL DO not the banks....they pass on losses to us.
