Allen Iverson's Ex

Wants Him Tossed in Jail

Over Unpaid Child Support

6/8/2013 12:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0608-allen-iverson-gettyAllen Iverson has a date this week with the judge who earlier this year called him a horrible parent ... and seeing as his ex claims he owes $40,000 in child support ... this new hearing will probably go as poorly for Iverson as the last one.

As TMZ first reported, when Iverson's divorce was finalized back in February, the judge in the case tore Iverson's parenting skills a new one ... saying, "He does not know how to manage the children" and he "has been a hindrance to their spiritual and emotional growth and development."

Now TMZ has learned Iverson's ex, Tawanna, has filed docs with the court saying that Iverson has failed to honor the child support agreement that was handed down back in January. The order stated that Iverson was to pay $8,000/month in support for their 5 kids ... but Tawanna claims Iverson has missed every payment he was supposed to make.

The two are set to be in court this week, where Tawanna wants the judge to order Iverson to fork over the $40,000 he owes in support and even suggest the judge lock Iverson up for his actions. 

Should be a fun day in court.

This guy still thinks he is a 16 year old punk. He has never grown up because of all his enablers, from the GOVENOR of Virginia letting him out of jail, to his college coach at Georgetown, and then the entire "hoodlum" culture of the NBA that held him up as something great (?)Yet he is still the jerk he has always been.

My daughters ex owes her over $50,000, the court does nothing to him. They will not lock this guy up either, he should just quit working like the rest of the deadbeats. lol

That's a tough one. He doesn't make the money he used to make when he was big time. Maybe the amount should be reduced to something that he can afford. Maybe they both should lower their standard of living.

Unbelievable. According to an earlier article on TMZ, he just gave the her a lump sum of $3 million cash back in January. Now, 5 months later, the bitch wants him locked up?!?! Where's Scott Peterson when you need him?

AI- I'll tell youths one time.

At some point you have to decide that everything you did in the past you won't do that way in the future.

Real athletes are emotional people.

Just focus on your kid.

That's what matters.

Come up with something you can do with your skill and experience that can cover that.

That woman is trying to make you mad and stay on your mind.

Focus on the kid.

You have a lot of skills beyond basketball and it's time to work on that.

Everyone who knows basketball knows AI, now get your off court **** on track. You can't change the hard knocks of the past but you can control the future.

Everythings good.
