Many Rhode Island basketball fans consider Allen Iverson to be one of the best point guards to have ever played in the NBA. At the peak of his career in 2001, he married his wife, Tawanna. Unfortunately, the couple's marriage struggled throughout the rest of Iverson's basketball stint in the United States. At one point, rumors surfaced that Iverson may have been unfaithful. Now, as the couple deals with a divorce, Tawanna has filed court documents asking the basketball player to submit a list of every woman he had sexual relations with during their 10-year marriage.
According to reports, Iverson's wife filed for divorce in 2010. However, she dropped the petition for a short period when the couple attempted to reconcile. Ultimately, Tawanna filed again in the summer of 2011. In her recent petition, she requested custody of the couple's five children.
In addition to these requests, Tawanna has also asked for the name and telephone number of every person whom Iverson has had intimate relations with during the course of the couple's marriage. Sources say that the demand for this information is somewhat out of place, considering that Tawanna had affirmatively stated last June that her divorce had nothing to do with infidelity. Nevertheless, as the NBA player battles through the drama and disarray of his divorce, he will now have to address the issue of unfaithfulness.
This story is a reminder that the process of divorce can be extremely messy. It involves a lot of heavy matters such as property, money, emotions and children. Furthermore, dramatic divorce settlements can be drawn out and exhausting.
While it may be difficult to end a marriage, but with the help of legal counsel, couples can usually resolve any pending issues and happily move forward. Hopefully, this will be the case for the renowned NBA player, his wife and children.
