George Zimmerman

Will Continue To Pay Wife

From Legal Defense Fund

9/8/2013 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0906-george-zimmerman-shellie-gettyGeorge Zimmerman will continue to pay his estranged wife's living expenses from his legal defense fund, and he may even use money from the fund to pay her alimony if it comes to that ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story ... Shellie Zimmerman received $4,300 after the couple separated for living expenses, and the money came from the George Zimmerman Legal Defense Fund.  Solicitations for the fund stated that money could be used for their living expenses, but that's when they were still together.

Sources connected with the couple tell TMZ ... Shellie is not a gold digger and only wants necessary expenses.  We're told George will continue to pay her way from his fund, but the monthly amount will vary and every penny will be backed up with a receipt.

Now this is interesting.  If George is ordered to pay Shellie alimony when they divorce, he is leaving open the possibility that he could pay that through his legal defense fund.

So we gotta ask ...

This would be one of the reasons I would never give money to anyone for their legal defense, They go into the trouble without my help and they can get out of it without my help thank you very much.

You know, the safest place for her is probably with George. He knows how to handle himself with a gun, in the courts and on the run from crazy killers out for his blood. I don't think he should use that money for anything but the defense expenses. If she wants to leave, let her pay her own way.


He might need that money if they can figure out how to drag him back into court. I don't know if his enemies burned their minds out yet trying to come up with another way to legally do him in. If not, he needs that money to fight the feds and whoever else.

I get the impression that his wife wanted him to get convicted. Not because she thought he was guilty, but rather, it got her out of the marriage, and she would of gotten all the money from that fund.
