George Zimmerman Lawyer

I Hope His Paintings Make MILLION$

George Zimmerman could have a gold mine on his hands -- selling artwork to climb out of massive debt -- and no one's happier than the lawyer who defended him at his murder trial -- who's still waiting to be paid ... TMZ has learned.

Zimmerman is on the hook to attorney Mark O'Mara for a reported $1 million.  Zimmerman could make a serious dent in that debt if he sells his first original painting on eBay ...  because the highest bid is now well over $100K.

O'Mara wouldn't comment on Zimmerman's finances.  But he did tell us, "If selling paintings helps him rebuild his life, I'm not going to stand in the way of that."

But we're guessing if there's a big fat check in O'Mara's mailbox ... he'll gladly cash it.

Me too Mark O'Mara. Not because I want Zimmerman to make a red cent on it, but because it would be some serious poetic justice that you're the guy who got him off and he immediately tried to screw you from the defense fund monies. I hope you get it all Mark O'Mara, just on principal.

what the hell is this sick crap? why does this 'ethnic looking dude' get away so comically with killing some teen? if that dude mehserle who killed oscar grant went into the media as a clown after he as well was sentenced, he'd be dead by now. why does this total ahole get away with joking the last bit out of what he did? just because a jury acquitted him, it makes what he did ok? are you kidding me? this legal system is A JOKE. i swear, a total JOKE.

it's like black people are a wholly unprotected class. like they can be erased or eliminated at will, and will be 'repudiated' if need so be... media speaking. like there is a 'time' where it is 'ok' to kill a black person, and then there is a time where it is not. it 'depends'. FUQN CRAYYYYZEEE.

Mr. Omara will be paid when George gets a gazillion dollars from the MORONS at NBC ... And for those who will say that the Martins will get the money ... I don't think so.. Ya' see, The Martins will never bring a civil suit, as that would leave the door wide open to prove all the lies those despicable parents have made, and it would also reveal to the world who "The real Trayvon" actually was .. a theif, druggie, law-breaking 6'3" teen, who his parents didn't pay attention to.. it is what it is, folks :)

TMZ, why do you KEEP saying "original" when the image has been proven to be copied from a Getty owned image, and the fee not paid?
