Wanna get Allen Iverson to pay his child support bill? Threaten jail because the ex-NBA star finally coughed up the $40,000 he owed his ex wife narrowly escaping time in the slammer.
TMZ broke the story … Iverson’s ex, Tawanna, has been trying to collect child support from the b-baller since their divorce was finalized in February, but no cigar. Then, last month she asked a judge to throw him in jail, if he continued to dodge the bill: $8,000 / month for the last 5 months.
In new court docs — filed last month in Fulton County, GA — Iverson said he never paid the money because he was led to believe he and Tawanna would reconcile.
Taking a hard stance a judge ordered Iverson pony up the cash within 72 hours … or be arrested.
The threat apparently worked, Iverson’s lawyer tells TMZ … “Allen has complied with the order and met every term for which he was required.”
Also … he’s not in jail.

R. Kelly is accused in court papers filed Thursday by his ex-wife Andrea Kelly of failing to pay $20,833 a month in child support he owes. The claim comes after he reportedly fell behind more than $100,000 in payments last year, but then paid the debt off.
Kelly’s trouble doesn’t end there: One of his attorneys has told Kelly’s camp that if the singer doesn’t appear at a March 27 hearing in his child- custody battle in Chicago, a judge could give him 30 days to six months behind bars because Kelly didn’t show up at a November hearing.
“The judge was clear in November that he wasn’t happy R. Kelly didn’t show up,” said a source. “His lawyer is worried the judge could lock Kelly up if he doesn’t show this time, but he can’t reach his client.”
According to reports Kells owes a lot of people money from his last album and has been ‘unreachable’ for weeks.
