Allen Iverson & Tawanna Iverson*Ahh yes, the affairs of the heart … and maybe even the pocketbook.

In other words, for Allen Iverson, whose money is funny these days and a pending divorce, maybe it really is cheaper to keep her.

According to TMZ, the former NBA great is trying to stop the divorce action, saying he and his estranged wifey Tawanna got back together and did a lot more than rub bellies. So that means her petition is is null and void.

Iverson filed a motion to dismiss last week in his pending divorce case, claiming he and his wife Tawanna had temporarily reconciled from November 2011 to February 2012 — and had “resumed their marital relationship, cohabiting, having sexual relations and holding themselves out as husband and wife.”

According to Iverson, that’s enough for a judge to throw out Tawanna’s divorce petition — on grounds the marriage isn’t “irretrievably broken” … as she had claimed.

It’s unclear if Iverson actually wants to get back together with Tawanna — the former NBA player’s legal move might simply be an attempt to delay paying support.

So far,  judge has yet to rule. We’ll let you know how it goes.
