Allen Iverson and his estranged wife, Tawanna Iverson, are in the middle of a highly-publicized, volatile divorce. Recently the divorce proceedings have centered around Iverson's finances as court documents show he claimed to have a deficit income of close to $300k per month. Iverson reportedly brings in $62k a month, however his monthly expenses are close to $360k. Approximately one-third of his monthly debt goes to mortgage payments, his jeweler and various other creditors. Iverson documented that he spends the remaining two-thirds on items such as food, clothing, dry cleaning and entertainment.
In addition, because Iverson allegedly defaulted on the mortgage to his $4.5 million dollar home, the Atlanta home was set to go on the auction block on December 4th, 2012. To stop the sale, and prevent foreclosure proceedings from moving forward, Iverson filled a lawsuit against his lender claiming that he never consented to the terms of the loan. The lawsuit goes on to state that it was Iverson's estranged wife who signed for the mortgage and agreed to financial terms Iverson would have no chance of being able to meet.
