Allen Iverson took a “leave of absence” from the Sixers after his daughter was diagnosed with a currently-undisclosed ailment. Now it’ll be Iverson’s wife taking a leave of absence.

In the divorce petition filed on Tuesday, Tawanna Iverson said her 8 ½-year-long marriage to the guard was “irretrievably broken.” In the petition, Tawanna Iverson asked for temporary and permanent custody of their five children as well as child support and alimony.

She did not ask for a specific dollar amount. The children range in ages from 17 months to 15 years. –AJC, via Truth & Rumors.

Who would have thought that an aging NBA has-been could be such a pain in the ass to have around the house all day? Either way, it’s attorney-shopping time for Iverson. I wonder if he’ll go with a bigger firm or settle on a younger up-and-comer with his own private…practice. Aw, yeah. We talkin’ bout practice.
