George Zimmerman Fight

Turf War Over Rented Home

George Zimmerman
allegedly punched his estranged wife's father during a childish dispute over who had the right to be in the house -- the renter or the owner, aka George or his daddy-in-law ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Zimmerman tell us, George and his estranged wife Shellie Zimmerman have been renting a home from her parents, but ever since she filed for divorce they've been avoiding each other like the plague -- scheduling house visits ahead of time to keep the peace.

Must've been a snafu in scheduling -- because we're told George showed up Monday AM to remove some things, and ran into Shellie and her dad.

We're told the argument erupted when Pops declared it was his house, and George replied that he was paying rent ... and had every right to be there. The spat ended when Zimmerman allegedly punched Shellie's dad in the face.

Complicating matters was the fact George brought his new girlfriend with him. We're told she was waiting in his car while he went inside, and didn't get out until police arrived.

At the end of Shellie's 911 call you can hear her say, "There's a woman in there. Oh my god."

As for the identity of George's gf -- we're told she appears to be someone new ... NOT George's ex-fiancée, despite what reports are saying.

That is weird how he went and grabbed another woman so fast. Maybe they are trying to see who can make the other more angry. If he was renting, he did have a right to be there. The father shouldn't have been in the house at all.


Shellie bit off more than she can chew picking a fight with George. We know how that ends. He fights back.

His wife's behaviour now makes a lot more sense. What an idiot to turn up at your father in law's house with your new girlfriend within days of the announcement of the marriage breakup. All the media now know where they were living and he has put his wife and in laws at possible risk. If they have been hiding out as they claimed how has George managed to pick up a new girlfriend.

The new girl is pretty much attracted to the defense fund more so than the fat cow himself. This George guy is one hell of a sociopath! Someone will still sound stupid if they say Trayvon had no right to defend himself that night! Everything that has happened after the acquittal points to a very clear picture of things might have happened that night. George is selfish and has no regards for others. It's all about him. That's a narcissistic behavior.

George Zimmerman? Still? Really? News sure has gotten slow for TMZ since Oprah put Lindsay on a leash.

They search black men cars all the time, without warrants. must be nice. and they said they didn't find a gun but couldn't check the car... i guess gz has a lifetme get out of jail card from the po po and the racists who feel he's a hero feeling killing a black kid
