Allen Iverson's Divorce: Estranged Wife Demands List of Lovers

Tawanna Iverson, the estranged wife of former NBA superstar Allen Iverson, is seeking a divorce and now wants a list of the names of all the women Allen allegedly slept with, reports TMZ.

Tawanna Iverson's request to Allen Iverson is pretty specific:

"... give the name and telephone number of every person other than your spouse whom you have had sexual relations and/or intimate physical contact from the date of the marriage to the date of trial."

What, you might ask, could be the reason to seek this information other than to try and make Allen Iverson look bad?

Well, one possibility is that perhaps Tawanna Iverson is trying to reach out and interview some of these women to find out what kind of lifestyle they may have led when they were romantically involved with Iverson. That would make sense, because previously Tawanna Iverson has tried to argue that there is an imbalance between how Iverson lives his life and what he pays her in child support, as reported by TMZ.

Allen Iverson’s side is likely to raise the defense that speaking to his lovers is probably too big an intrusion into the private lives of these women, especially as the state of his financial affairs can be evaluated in other ways. These include looking at his bank accounts, real estate assets, and tax returns.

Having said that, this case shows that even in the age of no-fault divorce, the question of adultery can still come up, particularly as a negotiating tactic. The best person to advice on tactics like these in Texas is a local family law attorney.
