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 ...

Does anybody actually read what he did to this woman, or just get their "news" from a TMZ blurb?

“Wait..they have money in a defense fund.? Why are the attorney asking state to pay them”
O'Mara claims he hasn't been paid by Zimmerman for his 16 months of work on the case, which would tally to more than $1 million in legal fees at his usual $400-per-hour rate. If he couldn't pay, he should have gotten a public defender!”

I'd venture a guess that she spends about 4250 of the 4300 a month on food. **** that fat **** and her abomination of a husband. I hope they both get murdered and I hope it ****ing hurts.

They've been married for 6 years. How long does someone get alimony for 6 years of marriage and no children? Two years maybe? They both need to get jobs.

There's a problem here    

Scamming again. Squirreling it away so they don't lose everything in the wrongful death suit. Count on it.

Incredibly stupid people donate to defense funds. What were they expecting? This was a trial in Florida, where more incredibly stupid Flor-idiots are allowed to sit on a jury and let the guilty go free. Anyone remember the Casey Anthony trial?

It's crazy people give them money. Not only did he get away with murder but now he gets paid for it too and she's living off it? So much for a post-racial America. George Zimmerman, executioner of Black youth, self-hired, publicly paid via "donation."

Obviously by now it's clear that noone is looking for any of the wannabe somebodies. People need to get over thier fantasies of him being hunted down, only people looking for this man is the bill collectors. Pathetic Being and the poor idiots giving away their bill monies. Sad Days indeed!
