George Zimmerman's Wife Files for Divorce

Even George Zimmerman's own wife hates him. According to ABC News, Shellie Zimmerman has bailed on her marriage. In a recent interview with the same network, she said the fall-out from the 2012 Trayvon Martin shooting put a serious strain on the household bliss.

No shit.

"I think we have been pretty much like gypsies," she told ABC News. "We've lived in a 20-foot trailer in the woods, scared every night that someone was going to find us and that we'd be out in the woods alone and that it would be horrific."

The now ex-Mrs. Z pleaded guilty last month for perjury after she lied to a judge about the family's fiances following the Martin shooting.

She was handed 10 hours community service and one year probation. George was not in the courtroom standing by his wife during her sentencing.

On the bright side, she had finally get rid of that loaded last name.
