Good News! Allen Iverson Didn’t Abduct His Kids

No Events Available

This update took almost a full 24 hours to come out, which is a tad surprising. But Allen Iverson, apparently, didn’t abduct his kids.

First, a Georgia TV station caught up with Iverson at the hotel where he is holed up with his kids (yes, he’s actually with his kids at a Georgia hotel, for some reason) and that led to this strange sequence of sentences:

11Alive’s Jeff Hullinger looked up the hotel in the papers and went to see if we could find Iverson there. He spotted the basketball player walking his kids to his Maybach.

Hullinger offered to show Iverson the court document.

“They say I stole my kids? That’s what they say?” Iverson said, but he refused to comment further, saying, “If that’s what you believe and people think I’m crazy enough to do, then so be it.”

“I ain’t never treated fairly, don’t expect to be,” he added before driving away.

I do, actually, believe that Iverson is crazy enough to steal his own kids. But he says he didn’t. And so did a judge– this update from TMZ, who broke the initial story:

But TMZ has learned … Allen appeared in Fulton County court in Georgia last Wednesday and told the judge his ex-wife had full access to their kids during their stay at the hotel … and therefore he wasn’t doing anything wrong. We’re told Tawanna also testified that she could have picked up the children from Allen but didn’t want to drive 45 minutes to his location.

After A.I.’s testimony, the judge decided the former Philadelphia 76ers star didn’t deserve to be thrown in jail — despite his ex-wife’s request before the hearing.  The kids — ranging from ages 3 to 16 — were returned to their mother following the hearing.

In fact, sources connected to the case tell TMZ … Allen and his ex have worked out some of their issues … and she has already allowed Allen to spend more private time with the kids.

There’s a bit of a discrepancy there– AI was with the kids yesterday, but the TMZ report says he returned them (we’re just going to talk about them like they’re merchandise) last week. Either way, it doesn’t look like AI has abducted his children, and that’s probably a good thing.
