Allen Iverson fighting Atlanta mansion foreclosure, says it’s his wife’s fault

Allen Iverson has no intention of letting his $4.5 million Atlanta mansion go to foreclosure without a fight. Earlier this month, word surfaced that the home Iverson purchased back in 2010 was set to be sold at auction on Dec. 4 after he allegedly defaulted on a $1.2 million mortgage. However, Iverson has filed a lawsuit against the lender that has held things up.

According to TMZ, Iverson’s suit claims that he never consented to the loan and that his estranged wife, Tawanna, was the one who signed off on the mortgage in order to “screw him.” Iverson says Tawanna agreed to the loan knowing that he would be unable to meet the financial terms.

That’s certainly an interesting accusation, to say the least. If nothing else, the lawsuit has postponed the auction for the time being. This isn’t the first bizarre story we’ve heard about A.I. and his estranged wife. Remember several months ago when she requested a list of all the sexual partners he has ever been with as a part of their divorce proceedings?

For Iverson’s sake, let’s hope that rumor about his friend tucking away $35 million for him in a secret account was true. It sounds like he may have to tap into those funds in order to sort this mess out.

    Do all women see a dollar sign when they get with and marry these professional athletes?  Just a shame that old-fashioned love and values don’t seem to apply anywhere and any more today.  Good luck, Iverson.  All I can say is take it slow next time, get a pre-nup and maybe a psychological evaluation of the woman you plan on making the next Mrs. Iverson.

    Yea i agree Eden. Most of the womans married to these guys seem
    evil. Its all about the money, sure woman talk about love and romance but
    all they want is da money. At least guys just want sex, women are nuts.

    I totally agree with u eden131, some men just cant keep their dick inside of there pants, so sad to see dis is happening, but as they day, when you make your bed, you have to lie on it. he should have sign a pre-nup, and should have take his time when it  comes to marriage, you doh just marry someone with ah pretty face.  lord have mercy on his soul these guys are too wild, they knos nothing about love and settling down when there are a lot of women out there who are throwing themselves at them, they jus cyah say no

    I’ve bought 2 houses and refinanced several times.  At no time would they ever loan me $1 without both me and my wife’s signature on the mortgage papers.  This case is pretty cut and dried, either Allen Iverson signed the contract (loan papers) or he didn’t   It least that is the law in CA, and lenders are ALWAYS cautious.   So, did she FORGE a signature (felony), or did he sign and is now lying?
