Allen Iverson

Dodges Jail Time ...

Forks Over $40k to Ex

Wanna get Allen Iverson to pay his child support bill? Threaten jail ... because the ex-NBA star finally coughed up the $40,000 he owed his ex wife ... narrowly escaping time in the slammer.

TMZ broke the story ... Iverson's ex, Tawanna, has been trying to collect child support from the b-baller since their divorce was finalized in February, but no cigar. Then, last month she asked a judge to throw him in jail, if he continued to dodge the bill: $8,000 / month for the last 5 months.

In new court docs -- filed last month in Fulton County, GA -- Iverson said he never paid the money because he was led to believe he and Tawanna would reconcile.

Taking a hard stance a judge ordered Iverson pony up the cash within 72 hours ... or be arrested. 

The threat apparently worked, Iverson's lawyer tells TMZ ... "Allen has complied with the order and met every term for which he was required."

Also ... he's not in jail.

Allen is a fool and Tawanna is a whore. That 5th kid she had is not allens. There is no resemblance at all She is a filthy slut who is making him pay for a kid that isn't even his. He is a fool for wanting to reconcile with such a whore. What an idiot.

Although this father lived in North Carolina and paid his child support to Michigan, which this man was taken out of his house by force by the local police acting on a fugitive warrant. Because of allegations of nonpayment of child support by the children’s mother. However, 4 months later, which he finds out the truth of his arrest. Look at how he is treated and what was going through his mind during this proceeding. Look at the video and you decide!
