Ex-wife: Iverson abducted their kids

Allen Iverson has abducted his own children, the ex-wife of the former basketball star alleges in court papers.

Tawanna Iverson, who has sole legal custody of the five children ranging in age from 3 to 16, filed legal documents claiming Allen recently asked for permission to take their kids on a five-day vacation to Charlotte, N.C. late last month, TMZ.com reported.

She says Iverson did not return the children on May 26 as agreed and the former player was a no-show June 4 for another planned return.

Tawanna Iverson’s filing indicates she believes the children are being kept in a hotel in Georgia and may be at risk, alleging her husband is an alcoholic who drinks around their kids.

Allen Iverson last played in the NBA for Philadelphia in 2010, the same year the couple divorced.
