Transcript for George Zimmerman's Wife Files for Divorce
Freak accident. Thank you, linsey. George zimmerman's wife, shellie, is filing for dwos. She sat down with steve osunsami in sanford, florida, this morning. Good morning, steve. Reporter: Good morning, robin. She told us you can blame it on the fame. After her husband won his case at this courthouse behind me, he started acting brand-new. I have been married to a person for almost seven years. And I don't think I ever really knew him at all. Reporter:26-year-old shellie zimmerman says she's filing for divorce from her husband, who was found not guilty in the shooting death of trayvon martin because according to her court filings, their marriage is irretrievably broken. Do you feel he feels after the trial a little more invensible? In my opinion, I think he feels invincible. I think he's making reckless decisions. Reporter: Since his acquittal in july, he spent maybe three or four nights at the home they quietly shared. AND SHE MOVED OUT AUGUST 13th. She claims he has a temper. Said he was verbally abusive. And said they went to counseling but it wasn't working. I have a selfish husband. And I think george is all about george. Reporter: She has had legal troubles of her own. Just last week, she pleaded guilty to lying in june of last year at a bond hearing for her husband, about how much money they had. I stood by my husband through everything. And I kind of feel like he left me with a bunch of pieces of broken glass that I'm supposed to now assemble and make a life. Reporter: She's asking for their two dogs and a share of whatever her husband might win in a defamation lawsuit he's filed against nbc. She's also hoping she can believe behind the drama that has taken over her life since that fateful night in sanford. It's just time. I have supported him for so long. And neglected myself for too long. And I feel like I'm finally starting to feel empowered again. Reporter: We reached out to zimmerman and his attorneys. And his attorneys told under the circumstances they would not comment on his wife's allegations.
