June 18 (UPI) -- In a Monday report, Tawanna Iverson claimed her ex-husband, former NBA star Allen Iverson, was holding the couple's five children hostage in a metro Atlanta hotel.

But Allen Iverson, 38, said he was never keeping them in the first place.

Jeff Hullinger of 11Alive looked up the hotel and found Iverson walking his children to his Maybach. There, he offered to show Iverson the court document.

"They say I stole my kids? That's what they say?" Iverson said. "If that's what you believe and people think I'm crazy enough to do, then so be it."

"I ain't never treated fairly, don't expect to be," he said.

Iverson's ex-wife filed court documents that said Allen had taken the children to a Georgia hotel rather than on a brief agreed-upon vacation to Charlotte, N.C. Tawanna has sole custody of the children and said he had refused to return them.

Allen appeared in a Fulton County, Ga., court on Wednesday, where he said he told Tawanna she had access to the children during their entire hotel stay.

Tawanna testified that she could have driven to get the children, but that they were 45 minutes away and it was too long a drive for her.

Tawanna said she wanted her ex-husband locked up for not returning them on time, but the judge said he didn't deserve to be thrown in jail.

The children were returned to Tawanna following the children. The children range in age from 3 to 16.
