The wife of former NBA star Allen Iverson has re-filed for divorce, an attorney told the AJC.

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.
