George Zimmerman's just won a big round in the "She-loves-me-she-loves-me-not" game -- his ex-girlfriend wants him back so badly, she's recanted her claim of domestic violence and the case has been dropped.
Zimmerman was arrested and charged with aggravated assault and battery ... after GF Samantha Schiebe claimed he pulled a shotgun on her and pushed her out of their house.
But Samantha has had a change of heart ... she wants George back, and the State Attorney for Seminole County says Samantha now says she lied about the encounter and refuses to cooperate ... hence, there's no way to successfully prosecute him.
But there's still something blocking these lovebirds from reuniting -- a restraining order, which Samantha's lawyer is now trying to get lifted.
Bottom line ... because she's fickle, George is out of a pickle.

Lindsay is adamant she wasn't kicked out, and only left because of rampant drug and alcohol use.

The guy who played Goldberg the Goalie in "The Mighty Ducks" is accused of trying to PEE on his ex-girlfriend ... after allegedly punching her in the face ... this according to legal docs obtained by TMZ.
Goldberg's ex Sonja Dimitrievska filed docs in L.A. this week asking a judge to grant her a restraining order against the 90's star -- real name Shaun Weiss -- claiming he beat the crap out of her several times during their 2-year relationship.
In the docs, Sonja says the final straw was back in April ... when she came home to a drunken Goldberg who threatened to kill her and pull her eyes out.
Sonja says she left for a few hours to let him cool off ... but claims Goldberg was in her bed holding a machete when she returned home -- and proceeded to sock her in the face.
Sonja says she ran away to hide in a nearby bedroom ... but Goldberg broke the door down and tried peeing on her while saying "this is all you're worth."
But here's where things take a turn -- Sonja says GOLDBERG called the cops ... and when they got to the scene, they arrested HER.
There's more -- the judge eventually DENIED Sonja's temporary request for a restraining order against Goldberg ... and has ordered a hearing for Dec. 17th to discuss the matter in depth.
We tried reaching out to Goldberg ... but he had no comment.
