NBA legend, Allen Iverson, known just as much for his game as his hilarious disdain for “practice,” is embroiled in a bitter divorce dispute, and he refuses to let the judge treat him in the same dishonest way that she did Usher’s ex Tameka Raymond.
Iverson filed a motion for the judge to recuse herself last month, claiming she has accepted campaign donations from his estranged wife’s attorney — and has a track record of making biased decisions for contributors.
As for the Usher connection — the lawyer who repped the singer in his child custody showdown with Tameka Raymond is also repping Iverson’s ex.
In his motion, Allen claims the judge’s decision to strip Tameka of primary custody was biased, and he refuses to get the same treatment.

The judge claims that Iverson does not have enough evidence to force her recusal.
As previously reported by NewsOne, Raymond filed documents in September appealing a ruling that granted Usher primary custody. The grief-stricken mother, who lost her 8-year-old son Kile in a tragic jey-ski accident, says that she did so because she felt the judge was biased because she received campaign money from Usher’s lawyer.
