It’s never a good idea to take merchandise without paying for it especially when you’re a superstar athlete who has the money to pay for it a million times over. Well that’s exactly what Allen Iverson did a few years ago regarding a jewelry tab:
Allen Iverson‘s bank account has been commandeered by a Georgia judge … who’s garnishing the former NBA star’s earnings so A.I. can repay a 6-figure debt to his flashy GA jeweler.
According to court papers obtained by TMZ … Iverson was sued back in 2010 for allegedly stiffing Aydin & Company Jewelers on a $375,000 bill.
The records show … A.I. never responded to the lawsuit … so a default judgement was issued in favor of the jewelry store … allowing A&C to collect $859,896.46 for the bling, court costs, interest and attorneys fees.
But A.I. still didn’t pay … so earlier this month .. the judge signed off on an order which allows the store to recoup their loss directly from Iverson’s Wells Fargo bank account.
