Iverson was asked to list lovers, contrary to wife's new denial

Posted: March 23, 2012

Tawanna Iverson and her divorce attorney may need to have a chat.

The wife of ex-Sixer superstar Allen Iverson on Thursday denied making any legal request for a list of all his lovers, according to a Fox29 report.

But, as reported in a Daily News cover story this week, the court papers are clear.

"Give the name and telelphone number of every person other than your spouse with whom you have had sexual relations and/or intimate physical contact from the date of the marriage to the date of the trial in the above-styled case," states item No. 18 in a request for information filed last June with Superior Court of Fulton County, Ga.

It was "respectfully submitted" by Tawanna Iverson's attorney, John C. Mayoue.

A second set of requests, for documents, asked the Answer last June for "All letters, correspondence and notes between you and any third party during the term of this marriage of a romantic and/or sexual nature."

On March 6, Mayoue further filed a "Motion to Compel Discovery," seeking the judge to order completion of the earlier requests.

The original information request also did some defining: "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."

Yet Fox29 reports, "She says neither she nor her attorney asked for any such information." The story can be seen online at http://bit.ly/GIAmpn.

The couple, high school sweethearts in Virginia, married in the summer of 2001, after the Sixers lost to the Los Angeles Lakes in the NBA Finals.

They have five children, who range in age from 3 to 17.
