Despite a stellar NBA career, Allen Iverson‘s off-court troubles continue to tarnish his legacy. The latest shenanigans involving A.I. are his ex-wife accusing him of kidnapping their children. 

According to Tawanna Iverson, the former All-Star point guard picked up his five kids in late May for a visit, and never returned them to their mother.  TMZ reports:

Tawanna Iverson just filed legal docs, claiming Allen recently asked for permission to take their five kids on a short vacation to Charlotte, NC from May 22nd-May 26th (and Tawanna agreed) but when May 26th rolled around, the children hadn’t been returned.

The kids range in age from 3 to 16 years old. 

In the docs, Tawanna says she tried to set up an exchange on June 4th at a neutral location — a nearby Target store — but A.I. never showed up. 

Tawanna — who has sole legal and primary physical custody of their children — now believes Allen never took their kids to Charlotte at all … and is currently keeping them at a Sheraton hotel in Georgia. 

Tawanna claims she’s especially concerned because Allen’s an alcoholic who drinks around their kids. 

She now wants the court to force him to return the kids … and punish him as well, even suggesting the judge throw his ass in jail. 

The former Mrs. Iverson has a thing for asking judges to throw her ex-hubby in the bing. Earlier in the month she claimed that A.I. owed her $40,000 in child support and suggest he be locked up until he pays.

Tough to earn money while in jail, though. Just saying.
