MIAMI (AP) — Shellie Zimmerman said Thursday that she hasn’t been able to find her estranged husband to serve him divorce papers and that she doesn’t know what he’s capable of because he has changed since he was acquitted in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

Shellie Zimmerman said on NBC’s “Today” Show on Thursday that she is conflicted over George Zimmerman’s assertion that he killed the 17-year-old Martin in self-defense. But she said she believes the evidence and respects the jury’s verdict.

Martin, who was unarmed, was fatally shot in February 2012 after getting into a scuffle with Zimmerman as he walked home from a convenience store in Sanford, Fla. Shellie Zimmerman later pleaded guilty to perjury for lying about the couple’s finances after her husband’s arrest. She was sentenced to probation and community service.

“After standing by him, he kind of left and I guess kind of went on a victory tour without me,” Shellie Zimmerman said. “I thought I was living a life with him and that we were going to kind of rebuild after all this, and he had other plans for me.”

Zimmerman told Lauer she doesn’t believe her believe her husband profiled Martin, who was black. However, she said she now “doubts” his innocence on the self-defense claim.

Shellie Zimmerman, 26, also said she stands by her account of a Sept. 9 altercation with her husband at the house they shared in Lake Mary. She told a 911 dispatcher that her husband was threatening her with a gun.

The dispute took place just days after she filed for divorce. Shellie Zimmerman, her father and a friend were removing items from the home when her husband showed up and began taking photos.

“I didn’t see a gun, but I know my husband,” she said. “I saw him in a stance and a look in his eyes that I’ve never seen before. His shirt was half-way unbuttoned and he was putting his hand in his shirt and saying, ‘Please step closer, please step closer.’ So I think that just logically I assumed he had a gun on him.”

She added later: “This person that I’m married to and that I’m divorcing, I kind of realize now that I don’t know him and I really don’t know what he’s capable of.”

George Zimmerman hasn’t stayed at the home since then, and his whereabouts are unknown even to his wife and her attorney.

No charges were filed in that dispute, though deputies are still trying to retrieve footage of what happened from an iPad smashed by George Zimmerman during the argument.

    ‘Please step closer, please step closer.’ Those are probably the same words he said to Trayvon. Who really cares what this fat @ss cow has to say now. Are we to feel sorry for her? Why does she continue to do interviews? We all know her fat ass lying murdering husbabd Georgie Porgie dumped her greedy fat ass like a bad habit. That’s the only reason she’s spilling her guts. Don’t say one week he’s innocent and the next, because he took the money train without you, you now say he might be guilty. Damn right, he’s guilty and has been since day one. Go crawl back under the rock from whence you came.


  3. Oh Shellie, Shellie – you don’t live with a man and not know some of his afflictions – he didn’t just one day decide that all black boys would do him harm. George is the same man that you met on the first day that you met him – but now he’s gotten away with murder and you’re conflicted – none of this nonsense will bring Travyon back or bring peace to his parents, so just go on and live your life and stop with the comments – we don’t CARE!!

    We didn’t believe you when you stood by him then and we don’t believe you now, liar. We could careless and I would careless if he pistol whipped your fat greedy ass. I’d just say he was standing his ground. You made this bed bitch now lay down!
