Shellie Zimmerman said in a “Today” show interview
that after her husband’s behavior following the trial, she is unsure of his innocence in the Trayvon Martin killing, although she respects the jury’s verdict.
In an interview with Matt Lauer, Zimmerman said that the behavior she saw from George Zimmerman following his acquittal led her to file for a divorce and left her unsure of what she thought about the Martin killing.

Answering Lauer’s question about whether George Zimmerman’s behavior changed her perception of what happened to Martin, Shellie Zimmerman said, “I’m conflicted on that. I believe the evidence, but this revelation in my life has really helped me to take the blinders off and start to see things different.”
Lauer pushed harder, asking, “So now you doubt his innocence, at least the fact that he was acting in self-defense on the time that Trayvon Martin was killed?”
“I think anyone would doubt that innocence because I don’t know the person that I was married to,” Shellie Zimmerman said. “I have doubts. But I also believe the evidence.”
She did, however, vehemently deny that George Zimmerman was profiling Martin and assured Lauer that the night would have ended the same had Martin been white.
Shellie Zimmerman said she filed for divorce just weeks after the trial’s ending because George Zimmerman began to treat her as if she was disposable.
“I thought that I was living a life with him and that we were going to kind of rebuild after all of this and he had other plans for me,” she told Lauer.
Comments on stories about the “Today” interview, like this one on CNN
, were generally negative toward Shellie Zimmerman.
“This woman is just manipulating the media to push her own agenda, take all the money and run. She could care less about Trayvon but if she could make Zimmerman out to be some cold hearted animal for the divorce proceedings she could win by sympathy vote,” wrote one person.
