Allen Iverson is officially free of Tawanna Iverson, his now ex-wife and mother of his five kids, but not before the judge dropped the hammer on The Answer. In addition to signing off on the divorce, the Atlanta family court judge added some exceptionally harsh words in the final decree, basically calling the former NBA star a terrible father: “[Iverson] does not know how to manage the children; has little interest in learning to manage the children and has actually, at times, been a hindrance to their spiritual and emotional growth and development. For example, he has refused to attend to an obvious and serious alcohol problem, which has caused him to do inappropriate things in the presence of the children while impaired. He has left the children alone without supervision. He has left his young daughters in a hotel room with men who are unknown to the mother.” Using those words as ammunition, the judge awarded Tawanna legal and physical custody of the kids, granting visitation to Allen only if he abides by some very strict conditions. Those conditions include not drinking any alcohol for the next 18 months, and, until all of his kids are at least 18 years old, he can’t drink within 24 hours of his scheduled visitation time. The judge also ordered mandatory psychiatric treatment, and that he attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.
