George Zimmerman divorce records: I've got no home, no job and spend $100 a month on vacations
SANFORD - George Zimmerman
has no job, no home, no income but spends $100 a month on vacations and
$200 a month on psychological counseling, according to a financial
affidavit he recently filed in his divorce case.
Zimmerman, 30, is the former Neighborhood Watch volunteer acquitted last year of murdering Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black 17-year-old.
Immediately after the shooting - Feb. 26, 2012 – he quit his job and
went into hiding with his wife, Shellie, but two months after his
acquittal, she filed for divorce, saying he had taken to the road and
would not tell her where he was and what he was doing.
As part of the divorce case, Zimmerman filed a financial affidavit last week, spelling out his income, assets and debts.
According to it, he spends $3,304 a month, despite having no income.
He listed his total assets at
$14,000 – most of that is his 2008 Honda pickup. His debts total $2.5
million, most of that is money he owes criminal defense attorneys Mark O'Mara and Don West.
According to his paperwork, Zimmerman has no job, pays nothing for rent or a mortgage and has no health insurance.
He spends $350 a month for medical care plus $200 a month for psychological, psychiatric or mental health counseling.
He also spends $100 a month on vacations, he wrote.
Zimmerman's legal defense fund, which raised more than $400,000, now has a balance of $300, according to the affidavit.
It is not clear what happened to any money he earned from the sale of a painting on eBay in December. The winning bid was $100,000. There is no mention of it in his affidavit.
His banking account has $650, he reported.
In an interview last month, Zimmerman's brother, Robert Zimmerman
Jr., said the former Neighborhood Watch volunteer is homeless and moves
from place to place, sleeping in the homes of friends and supporters.
Zimmerman's divorce attorney, Howard Iken, would not comment.
