George Zimmerman's Wife Files For Divorce
26-year old Shellie Zimmerman, wife of George Zimmerman, has filed for divorce, about two months after her husband was acquitted of murdering Trayvon Martin. The couple was married in November 2007, and her reason for wanting to be divorced is "disappointment".
Just last week, Shellie said during an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America" that she was having serious doubts about remaining married. During that interview, she refused to say if she and her husband were still together. The couple have no children together.
Regarding Trayvon Martin
During the interview, Shellie also revealed she wasn't at their home the night of Martin's shooting because she'd had a fight with her husband. She stated, "I was staying at my father's house. We had gotten into an argument the night before and I left."
Doe She Believe George's Story?
Yes. In her interview she said that she does believe his version of the events leading to the shooting. But she added, "I can't tell you how many nights I've gone or laid awake at night just thinking that I wish to God the circumstances had been different."
Why Did She Lie About The Money?
Shellie, who admitted to lying during a bail hearing following the murder of Trayvon Martin, pleaded guilty last week to a misdemeanor perjury charge. She commented, "I can rationalize a lot of reasons for why I was misleading, but the truth is that I knew I was lying."
She is reportedly planning to do her community service with a local church. "I've made mistakes and I want to own them right now," she said.
