Allen Iverson is having a no good, very bad week.

The former Sixers No. 3 lost his Atlanta mansion at a foreclosure auction, according to TMZ. Foreclosure proceedings began in December after Iverson defaulted on his $1.2 million mortage. TMZ reported Iverson was able to stave off foreclosure in December by filing a lawsuit claiming he never consented to the terms of the loan set up by his now-estranged wife Tawanna. Iverson bought the house, worth $4.5 milllion in December 2010. Sources told the gossip website that Iverson's bank bought the mansion for $2.5 mil.

This news comes after the ATL judge presiding over Iverson's divorce slammed the erstwhile basketball great over his parenting skills.
