Spokane area basketball fans may have heard about the divorce drama of former NBA star point guard Allen Iverson. Iverson's wife filed for divorce in March 2010, but the two later attempted to reconcile. Now, Tawanna Iverson has filed for divorce again and recently filed a very strange request in court.
She wants Allen Iverson to hand over the names and phone numbers of every woman he slept with during their 10-year marriage. She has previously said that infidelity was not a factor in the split. It is not exactly clear why Tawanna Iverson has asked for this information, but some have said that it may be a tactic to rush the divorce settlement.
In her June 2011 divorce filing, Tawanna Iverson requested full custody of five children, along with child support and alimony. Allen Iverson has reportedly earned $200 million during his basketball career, but rumors have swirled that he is broke now.
Tawanna Iverson has also requested full disclosure of his financial information in her recent court filing. She believes that since the divorce filing was made, Allen Iverson has squandered money, spending it on himself rather than to support his family.
It is often wise during a divorce proceeding to keep a close eye on finances to make sure that your future ex is not hiding or diminishing assets, or hurting your financial credit. In high-asset divorces, family law attorneys may even choose to utilize the skills of forensic accountants and valuation experts to discover assets and determine which accounts and property are a part of the marital estate.
