Shellie Zimmerman files for divorce from George Zimmerman
Shellie Zimmerman, wife of George Zimmerman, filed divorce papers via computer to a Florida court this evening, her lawyer says.
“Filed this pm – electronically – so took a while, but the documents have been received by the Seminole county clerks,” Shellie Zimmerman’s lawyer, Kelly Sims, wrote in an email to NBC News.
She recently plead guilty to a perjury charge in connection to the Trayvon Martin case.
Her soon-to-be ex-husband, George Zimmerman, was acquitted in the murder of Martin. His defense team argued he killed Martin in self-defense.
At her perjury hearing Shellie Zimmerman said she would “think about” whether or not she’d stay married to her spouse.
George Zimmerman is also making headlines. He was recently pulled over by Florida police for the second time since his trial for speeding.
