Shellie Zimmerman officially filed for divorce from George Zimmerman Thursday afternoon, ABC News reports.
This comes only two months after Zimmerman was acquitted of murdering Florida teenager Trayvon Martin. Last month, Shellie, discussed in an interview with ABC, the rifts in her marriage that came after the 2012 shooting.
ABC News correspondent Matt Gutman originally reported the development via twitter:
#Breaking: George Zimmerman’s wife, Shellie, has filed for divorce (via @mattgutmanABC)
4:14 PM – 5 Sep 2013
George Zimmerman’s brother, Robert Zimmerman, Jr. tweeted the news to his more than 24,000 followers just after 5 p.m: “According to Shellie’s atty Kelly Sims – Shellie is preparing to file 4 divorce. Docs have not yet been filed in Seminole Cty. Pray 4 them.”
The Associated Press reports that Sims has confirmed Shellie plans to end their six-year marriage.
Btw, George Zimmerman was pulled over for speeding (again) by a Fla. cop two days ago.
