The Iverson Saga Continues: Former Lawyer Says He Owes Big Time On A Bill
Hopefully Allen Iverson has his umbrella because when it rains, it pours.
Jonathan Levine, Iverson’s former attorney in his divorce case, says the former NBA star owes him money for his services. He filed a lien against him in a Georgia court for all the money Iverson allegedly owes, according to TMZ.
Levine says the total is $61,098.86. Ouch.
Iverson was Levine’s client in 2012 when the divorce proceedings between he and his now ex-wife Tawanna first got started. However, by the end of the year, Levine quit as his attorney stating that it was very difficult to communicate with Iverson. The divorced was just finalized last month by a new attorney who handled the settlement.
Levine says if he doesn’t get paid, he will go after Iverson’s assets.
This allegation only seems to lend to the rumors that Iverson is broke. According to various reports, he spends a lot of money gambling and drinking. Most recently, he lost his mansion in Atlanta in a foreclosure auction after defaulting on his mortgage. However, A.I. has always maintained that even though he’s led a lavish lifestyle since becoming an NBA star. He might actually be right: he still has plenty of money – he just won’t see any of it until he’s 45 years old and his NBA pension kicks in. He also allegedly has an account he doesn’t gain full access to until he’s 55 years old.
He also recently agreed to $3 million to his ex-wife in their divorce settlement.
Perhaps he’ll pay the lawyer what he allegedly owes and at least get one thing off his financial plate.
