When you've had enough, you've had enough! And for Allen Iverson and his wife of 8.5 years, Tawanna, the only thing left to do is separate. Tawanna filed for divorce from Iverson, who isn't playing for the rest of the NBA season to "care for his sick daughter". AJC reports:
 In the divorce petition filed on Tuesday, Tawanna Iverson said her 8 ½-year-long marriage to the guard was “irretrievably broken.” In the petition, Tawanna Iverson asked for temporary and permanent custody of their five children as well as child support and alimony.

She did not ask for a specific dollar amount.

The children range in ages from 17 months to 15 years.

The children and their parents have lived in north Atlanta since August, according to the court filing. Before that, the family claimed homes in Rochester, Mich.; Englewood, Colo.; Denver, Colo.; and Villanova, Pa.

On Feb. 22, Allen Iverson and the 76ers announced that he was leaving the team for personal reasons.

The former NBA MVP and four-time scoring champion said he wanted to be in Atlanta to be with his daughter, Messiah, who had an undisclosed illness.
 The irony of the whole "missing games to attend to his sick daughter" is that Allen couldn't play in the NBA but managed to hit up parties. He partied with NFL'ers Deon Grant and Edgerrin James just last night at Vice Lounge in Atlanta. Hmmmm!
