FROM WHERE TAWANNA Iverson stands, her soon-to-be ex, former 76ers superstar Allen Iverson, may have had too much "practice" outside their bedroom.
The Mrs. filed court papers earlier this month in Atlanta asking Iverson to ID each galpal he's hooked up with since the start of their 2001 marriage, as well as to give their numbers to the court.
The Answer must "give the name and telephone number of every person other than your spouse whom you have had sexual relations and/or intimate physical contact from the date of the marriage to the date of trial," according to papers filed March 7 in Fulton County Family Court.
Only A.I. litigation could get this steamy.
"Such sexual relations and/or intimate physical contact include, without limitation, sexual intercourse, and/or touching or being touched in a manner for sexual arousal," the papers say.
Tawanna Iverson's attorney, John C. Mayoue, in Atlanta declined to comment to the Daily News about the filing.
Calls to the former MVP's legal eagle, Jonathan R. Levine, were not returned yesterday.
Tawanna Iverson may have gone this route to push for a settlement, said Atlanta-based lawyer Eileen J. Shuman, whose firm specializes in family law. But she has to be careful because of Georgia divorce laws, Shuman added.
"If Allen Iverson had 150 women and Tawanna Iverson knew about it, but she forgave him and they went to counseling," the legal term for this is "condonation," Shuman said. "She can't go to the court later and complain about the 150 women. She has condoned the behavior."
The bottom line are the children, Shuman said: Tiaura, 17; Allen II, 14; Isaiah, 8; Messiah, 6, and Dream, 3.
And the judge presiding over the case, Bensonetta Tipton Lane, is a child-advocate and is "not going to be swayed by outside stuff," Shuman said.
Mrs. Iverson was humming a different tune last June when she filed for divorce, seeking sole custody of the couple's five children. The "irretrievably broken" marriage, she told the website TMZ back then, "had nothing to do with another woman."
Can't blame a woman for changing her mind. Especially after her estranged hubby - her high school sweetheart - started spending like Allen Iverson the minute she filed for divorce. The former Tawanna Turner, 36, claimed in a December court filing that A.I., also 36, stopped depositing money in their joint account and started withdrawing large amounts to buy bling.
She said she couldn't pay the bills or provide for the kids, TMZ reported then. Tawanna Iverson claimed that A.I. didn't help out of spite, the website said.
A.I.'s troubles - and therefore her troubles - didn't end there. A Georgia judge froze his Wells Fargo bank account in January because Iverson ignored a lawsuit filed against him by a jeweler. The unidentified judge signed an order allowing Aydin & Co. to recoup its losses and attorney fees from the bank account, totaling close to $860,000, TMZ reported. It is unclear how much money was in the account.
This month's court filing is the latest development in a storied, if controversial, athlete's life.
In May 2002, an indignant Iverson famously said the word "practice" at least 20 times during a news conference responding to questions about his missing team practices.
But no one questioned whether he showed up for games. The 6-foot guard won the NBA scoring title four times, and his regular-season career scoring average of 26.7 points per game ranks him sixth in league history.
It's unknown how much remains of the $200 million to $250 million he earned on and off the basketball court.
The New York Post reported earlier this month that A.I. has $32 million and can't touch it till he's 55. He does, in the meantime, get to collect $1 million annually.
And in less than 10 years, at age 45, A.I. starts to collect an $8,000-a-month NBA pension, the Post reported.
Just enough for a modest Tiffany's ring and some appetizers at TGI Friday's or Houlihan's.
