It seems Allen will be avoiding jail time — for now.
According the the celebrity gossip juggernaut TMZ.com, shortly after Iverson’s ex-wife Tawanna Iverson filed paperwork stating that Allen owed her $40,000 in child support, Tawanna was back in court filing additional 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 exchange date.
I am not a an attorney, but that does not sound like a positive series of events for Iverson.
However, according to TMZ’s sources, “The Answer” has in fact returned his kids to their mother. Allen also testified in court that he was never holding them hostage in the first place.
