Allen Iverson to Judge

Don't Screw Me Like

You Screwed Usher's Wife

1/5/2013 5:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0104-allen-iverson-gettyNBA legend Allen Iverson wants a new judge in his divorce case -- claiming the current judge unethically does legal favors for campaign contributors, and he's afraid she will screw him just like she did Usher's estranged wife.

Iverson filed a motion for the judge to recuse herself last month, claiming she has accepted campaign donations from his estranged wife's attorney -- and has a track record of making biased decisions for contributors.

As for the Usher connection -- the lawyer who repped the singer in his child custody showdown with Tameka Raymond is also repping Iverson's ex. 

In his motion, Allen claims the judge's decision to strip Tameka of primary custody was biased, and he refuses to get the same treatment.

The judge ain't going anywhere ... for now. She shut down Allen's motion, claiming he failed to provide enough evidence to back his allegations.

If it's true that for every campaign contributor, she has ruled in their favor then he has every right to want a new judge. Judges are biased and it isn't fair for him to go through the entire court process for an already determined result. Anywho, I can say that he is better than the rest. Atleast she was a wife and not a "baby momma" like the rest of the fools have. On top of that, they've been married for 11 years; his H.S. sweetheart. That deserves some credit. Atleast he married for love, while these other guys are out here marrying for the size of a woman's ass, and other stupid trivial things; or not even marrying at all. With that being said, I fail to understand how he's broke. But then again, he was a basketball player and they spend it just as quick as they get it.

In New York EVERYONE has the right to ask for a new judge, and not just because there are conflicts of interest. Your case goes back to what they call the 'Tap Room' and is redistributed to another judge. If Cali doesn't have this they are crazy.

I think Allen is right. I used to be completely team Usher, but now I think he is a jerk. What mother loses custody, with no evidence of being unfit, to a person who as busy as Usher? NO ONE has ever said why she lost. Second, what kind of man can take children from a woman who just lost a child? But the last straw was his Oprah interview. He was clearly lying and it was obvious he cheated on her during the marriage. Then he acknowledged that he needed a team of relatives and nannies to raise the children because he is too busy. Watch it for yourself.

This is just bizarre. They have been in divorce proceedings for the past 10 years. This has to be the longest divorce case ever!

I dont feel the least bit sorry for him. He assualted people in a bowling alley brawl and played the race card so he could play ball instead of paying for his crime. He deserves every bad thing that happens to him.
