Retired NBA star Allen Iverson has reportedly abducted his five children at a Sheraton Hotel in Georgia, according to reports from TMZ and NESN.
According to the reports, the former player told his ex-wife, Tawanna Iverson on May 22 that he was taking the kids on a vacation to Charlotte, North Carolina and that he would return them to her custody on May 26, however Allen has yet to return the kids.
Tawanna filed court papers saying Allen asked for permission, and when the agreed May 26 return date passed, she said she tried to organize an exchange with her ex-husband on June 4, but he failed to show up.
Tawanna has sole legal and primary physical custody of the five children - whose ages range from three to 16 - and she says she has not seen the kids since they left on May 22.
