George Zimmerman

Will Continue To Pay Wife

From Legal Defense Fund

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 ...

Seriously what's with this website and Zimmerman? Is he a celebrity or something? Are you running out of news about blacks so you have to post stuff about people hated by blacks?

There is no binding contract when giving a donation online. George Zimmerman can go buy new cars and Guns with the money, and there is nothing anybody can do about it.. Don't feel so sorry for his legal team they will get paid by the taxpayers of Florida.

You are clearly trying to make a big deal out of this, but it's not. People gave the money and were told it would be used for living expenses. Your PR war against Zimmerman is racist.

I wonder how all the white supremacist groups who donated all that money feel about his wife getting half.

This doesn't sit right with me. That money was donated for lawyers and trial,s not for Shelly to get away from her husband. I think it is wrong that she is leaving him at this difficult time anyway. I think she is the one who is being selfish, not him. She is probably sick of all the pressure from being married to him.


Probably no one would know who she was if she just kept quiet. Now everyone knows, so she is maybe making herself even more of a target. I don't know if the black crazies are still after them, but it seems she would want to lay low if she was so scared.

I never followed this story closely but if you're giving some poor bastard money for his legal defense ostensibly you're doing it to help him and it is reasonable the stress of a trial could break up an already troubled marriage so it reasonable to use that money for any expenses he incurs.
