The split comes two months after being acquitted of Trayvon Martin's murder

Less than two months after George Zimmerman was acquitted of the murder of Trayvon Martin, his wife, Shellie, has filed for divorce. The filing came just days after she told reporters that the trial had strained her marriage, reports ABC News.

After Zimmerman, 29, was charged in April 2012, the couple had to live in hiding and were received death threats. “I think we have been pretty much like gypsies,” Shellie Zimmerman said. “We’ve lived in a 20-foot-trailer in the words scared every night that someone was going to find us and that we’d be out in the woods alone and that it would be horrific.”

Shellie Zimmerman, 26, pleaded guilty last month to perjury after lying about the couple’s finances when the judge was setting bail for her husband. George Zimmerman did not accompany Shellie to the courtroom that day, and she said afterwards that she felt “very much alone” without his support. “I stood by my husband through everything and I kind of feel like he left me with a bunch of broken glass that I’m supposed to now assemble,” she told ABC News, blaming their split on his “selfish” attitude. For her perjury role, she will have to serve 100 hours of community service and one year of probation.

But she maintains that she believes her husband’s claim that he shot and killed Martin in self defense. She added the most hurtful thing about the trial was people accusing her husband of being a “murderer or some sort of racist.”

POLICE DISPATCHER: "Okay do you want to just meet with them (police) right near the mailboxes then?"  

ZIMMERMAN: "Yeah that's fine."  

POLICE DISPATCHER: "Alright George, I'll let them know to meet you around there, okay?"  

ZIMMERMAN: "Actually could you have them, could you have them call me and I'll tell them where I'm at?"  

Would you be scared if your husband killed someone and got away with it? He is invincible. An invincible man can kill his wife and get away with it again just like that neighborhood watch guy Derek Medina.

What a dead giveaway.

Z has been "making some reckless decisions."

The shooting of Trayvon was definitely a RECKLESS decision because he was the ALL-POWERFUL neighborhood watch CAPTAIN. He was invincible. He was the COP that evening he shot an unarmed teenager with the REAL cops as his backup unit.

Zimmerman's wife states that she was not at their home on the night of the Trayvon Martin shooting because she and George Zimmerman had a fight.The fight apparently was heated enough that she felt it necessary to go elsewhere to cool off.What did George Zimmerman do during his cooling off period – considering he had recently had a heated fight with his wife?Strapped on a 9mm Kel Tec and went neighborhood “watching.”

After all that hardship their relationship ends in divorce.  How sad.   At least there was no mention of children so hopefully the pain ends for them.   It seems her underlying reason for filing for divorce is having no support.   Perhaps they just need time.   I kind of hate seeing another divorce and I think this Zimmerman guy has gone through enough.  If everything he said was true, I imagine he must feel awful if this is his reward.   http://solanofamilycourt.com/?p=441

Zimmerman is just a scapegoat for the national taboo of lying about racial reality. We have an Afreakin' problem, that's all! Good riddance Teavon!

The great American hero that lied about the amount of money in his donated defense fund then lied on stand and got away with murder. He duped Americans twice! Yet fools still want him to walk their children to school and protect their neighborhoods.

@TIME but I thought Zimmerman was a hero for following an unarmed teen and killing him. Fox News said so.
