Allen Iverson Finally Pays His Child Support, Avoids Jail

Phew. Allen Iverson, last seen appearing on horrible reality shows/appearing to kidnap his children, has finally done something quasi-laudable. He paid his child support under threat of imprisonment!

Iverson’s ex, Tawanna, has been trying to collect child support from the b-baller since their divorce was finalized in February, but no cigar. Then, last month she asked a judge to throw him in jail, if he continued to dodge the bill: $8,000 / month for the last 5 months. In new court docs — filed last month in Fulton County, GA — Iverson said he never paid the money because he was led to believe he and Tawanna would reconcile.

Mm-hmm. Now, says his lawyer, he’s finally forked over the $40,000 he owed. He’s turning over a new leaf. I can just feel it. [TMZ]
