Allen Iverson

Ex-Wife Claims


6/17/2013 6:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former NBA star Allen Iverson has abducted his own children ... so says his ex-wife, and now she's begging the court to force Allen to give them back.

Tawanna Iverson just filed legal docs, claiming Allen recently asked for permission to take their five kids on a short vacation to Charlotte, NC from May 22nd-May 26th (and Tawanna agreed) but when May 26th rolled around, the children hadn't been returned.

The kids range in age from 3 to 16 years old.

In the docs, Tawanna says she tried to set up an exchange on June 4th at a neutral location -- a nearby Target store -- but A.I. never showed up.

Tawanna -- who has sole legal and primary physical custody of their children -- now believes Allen never took their kids to Charlotte at all ... and is currently keeping them at a Sheraton hotel in Georgia.

Tawanna claims she's especially concerned because Allen's an alcoholic who drinks around their kids.

She now wants the court to force him to return the kids ... and punish him as well, even suggesting the judge lock him up in jail.

It's not the first time she's tried to get Iverson locked up ... she had previously begged the court to send him to the pokey for allegedly not paying more than $40,000 in child support.

Allen has filed legal docs in which he denies all of his ex-wife's allegations.

A Dead Beat Sports Figure, one good reason why the NBA should require a degree, something to fall back on when your career is over, you are Dead Broke, Can't pay Child Support, or Alimony. Maybe the league should provide Condoms at no charge so the Tax Payers don't have to support their Problem?

He needs to be very careful. With her having sole legal and primary physical custody, he could easily get charged with kidnapping his own kids. No court would give him a lot of trouble for a few hours, or even a day, but we are now talking about three weeks.

Well he couldn't have been too bad because she kept having kids with him. I think the older one, the 16 year old, would have contacted for help if kids in danger. Nevertheless, he should obey the custody rules.

This is not a good example of two people who once was in a relationship where a distraught woman is being very difficult towards a man she had five children with when they did get along. He drinks but, she never said he was abusive to the kids meaning the courts are taking sides against another man who probably felt the kids have a story to tell especially the 16 year old. Obviously they must love there father and she obviously trust him enough to let him go in the first place with the children. Now he has to answer to the law cause she flipped on him in a matter of a week now weeks of not having them in her care. There is a reason maybe he's making sure there all his since she sleeps around with his family and tries to pretend he is the only problem in their marriage. Two sides to every story...he needs to bring them back and move on cause she doesn't have his best interest. I'm upset on how manipulative she is towards using the system against him very sad. Disgusting tactics on a man I have seen woman do this all the time sneaky & deceitful.
