Shellie Zimmerman, the estranged wife of Trayvon Martin’s killer George Zimmerman, is speaking out about what led to the break-up of their six-year marriage. During an exclusive interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Shellie Zimmerman described her husband as “verbally abusive” and accused him of making reckless decisions since he was acquitted for Martin’s murder.
Shellie Zimmerman cited irreconcilable differences in her divorce petition filed on Thursday. She told GMA, “I stood by my husband through everything, and I feel like he left me with a bunch of pieces of broken glass, that I’m supposed to now assemble and make a life.”
She said she moved out of the home she shared with her husband a little under a month ago, after he spent only three or four nights following the end of the trial. She said, “I have selfish husband. George is all about George.” Um, is anyone surprised? Remember, the dispatcher told George Zimmerman not to follow Trayvon Martin and he did.
It’s equally damning that Shellie Zimmerman played the doting wife and stood by his side for the entire duration of his trial, but he was nowhere to be found when she pleaded guilty to perjury charges for misrepresenting their funds at a bail hearing. She was sentenced to probation and community service. George Zimmerman walked free.
Shellie Zimmerman said, “In my opinion, he feels more invincible.” “I just think he’s making some reckless decisions.” Um, that kinda sounds like the person who disobeyed the dispatcher’s instructions and still followed Trayvon Martin. I think in all this, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin will be vindicated to some degree because we will now hear about the real George Zimmerman from the person who should know him pretty well.
