Finally some relatively good Allen Iverson news. It now appears that the former NBA MVP was not holding his five kids hostage as his ex-wife, Tawanna Iverson, claimed in court.

Actually, it seems like the ex-Mrs. Iverson is crying wolf. Reports TMZ:

We broke the story … Iverson’s ex-wife filed court docs insisting Allen had all 5 of their kids holed up at an Atlanta hotel and refused to hand them over to their mother on the designated swap date.

But TMZ has learned … Allen appeared in Fulton County court in Georgia last Wednesday and told the judge his ex-wife had full access to their kids during their stay at the hotel … and therefore he wasn’t doing anything wrong. We’re told Tawanna also testified that she could have picked up the children from Allen but didn’t want to drive 45 minutes to his location.

After A.I.’s testimony, the judge decided the former Philadelphia 76ers star didn’t deserve to be thrown in jail — despite his ex-wife’s request before the hearing. The kids — ranging from ages 3 to 16 — were returned to their mother following the hearing.

In fact, sources connected to the case tell TMZ … Allen and his ex have worked out some of their issues … and she has already allowed Allen to spend more private time with the kids.

So she accused this man of kidnapping because she didn’t want to drive 45 minutes? Okay.

Considering she also wanted A.I. thrown in the pokey for allegedly being late on child support payments, we’re thinking she has an axe to grind. The two have reportedly worked out some of their issues, but damn.

Let us know what you think of this drama in the comments.
