Shellie Zimmerman, the estranged wife of child killer George Zimmerman, now says she doesn’t know him and she isn’t sure if he’s capable of murder.
In an interview with Matt Lauer on Thursday, Shellie said, “This person that I’m married to that I’m divorcing, I’ve kind of realized now that I don’t know him.. and I really don’t know what he’s capable of.”
Choosing her words carefully in the interview on NBC’s Today Show, Shellie said she wasn’t sure that George acted in self defense.
“I’m conflicted on that,” she said. “I believe the evidence, but this revelation in my life has really helped me to take the blinders off.”
Shellie also griped that George went “on a victory tour” without her after he was acquitted of 2nd degree murder by an all-female jury earlier this year.
Family friend Frank Taafe said Shellie Zimmerman had already moved out of the couple’s home before George Zimmerman gunned down 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in 2012.
George’s defense was aided by Shellie’s supportive wife act. But after his acquittal, George ran off with another woman and all that cash that was donated for his defense.
Shellie pleaded guilty to lying about $125,000 in donations during a April 2012 bond hearing.
The Zimmermans were involved in a domestic altercation earlier this month. Shellie says she tried to serve him with divorce papers but she can’t find him.
