Tawanna Iverson initially filed for divorce March 2, 2010, in Fulton County Superior Court, citing that her marriage was "irretrievably broken." The announcement came a week after Allen Iverson announced he was leaving the Philadelphia 76ers for the rest of the season to be with a sick daughter. The couple has five children.
That divorce petition was later dropped, Allen Iverson's attorney, Jonathan Levine, told the AJC Wednesday afternoon. But on Monday, Tawanna Iverson re-filed for divorce, said Levine, who declined to discuss the specifics regarding the initial filing.
Tawanna Iverson's attorney, John Mayoue, was unavailable for comment.
Allen Iverson, a former NBA scoring champ and all-star, is currently playing professional basketball in Turkey. He has said publicly he would like to return to the NBA to finish his career.
