Allen Iverson just received some bad news from a Georgia judge. The judge told the ex-baller that he is going to have his paychecks garnished to repay his jeweler. According to court records, Iverson owes Aydin&Company jewelers the handsome sum of $375,000. He never responded to the company’s lawsuit, and the bill has ballooned to $859,896.46 to cover the cost of collection, attorneys, and interest.
TMZ is reporting that the artist formerly known as Iverson hasn’t yet responded to the lawsuit. After leaving the NBA in disgrace a couple of years ago and struggling financially, it’s not expected that Iverson will be able to repay anyone anytime soon.

On romance and Mariah Carey
“Mariah and I are both hopeless romantics. We just made a pact to say that we want to be in this because we enjoy each other and we love each other…We want to be successful at being in a relationship; we want to have a good time.”
“A relationship shouldn’t seem like something you have to work at; it is not a task. We always wanted a fairy tale relationship…and the drama that normally comes with it, we [can] do without.”
“I was built for fatherhood. I grew up in a family with a lot of kids…Ihave taken care of kids my whole life. As soon as my children were born, they became first and everything else became secondary.”
On being a sex symbol
“[Being labeled a sex symbol] comes with the territory when being a solid husband and good father. Women find that kind of stuff appealing and sexy. Growing up, I was always the smallest kid in the school…I was the skinny and lanky dude…So I embrace [being labeled a sex symbol] now.
If you haven’t heard or watched on dreblacksofresh, Christina Aguilera gave a stirring rendition of “At Last” at the homegoing services for Etta James this past weekend.

Bronx, New York rapper Cory Gunz was arrested this weekend, after police found him in possession of a loaded handgun.
Police caught the rapper with a loaded, unregistered Taurus .9mm handgun.
Cory Gunz, born Peter Pankey Jr., is currently in custody in the Bronx.
His father, rapper Peter Gunz, told MTV News that his son was the victim of an illegal search.
“It was definitely an illegal search,” Peter Gunz told MTV News.
Peter Gunz further elaborated on his 24-year-old son’s arrest.
The rapper was exiting a cab when plain clothes officers aggressively approached him.
“He just got out of a cab and police ran up on him and they were in plainclothes,” Peter Gunz told the New York Daily News. “He didn’t know they were cops – he thought he was getting robbed.”
Peter Gunz said his son was currently in Central Booking, where he is being processed.
Although its his first offense, Corey’s father is worried that New York’s strict anti-gun laws will have an adverse affect on his son’s career.
The same laws sent Lil Wayne, the CEO of Young Money, Cory’s label, to jail for eight months in 2010.
“At the end of the day, there’s a reason for everything, but at the same time, in New York, it’s mandatory jail time,” Peter Gunz told MTV News. “To go to a precinct and see your son, your junior, in handcuffs, it’s heartbreaking. Anytime you see your child in jail, in the cell, in handcuffs, it’s very hard.”
Even though its his first offense, Cory Gunz faces a minimum mandatory sentence of 3 and 1/2 years in prison.
