George Zimmerman Is Broke, Has No Job, And Spends $100 A Month On Vacations


Apparently selling paintings on eBay isn’t enough for George Zimmerman to pay the bills. According to records released during his divorce hearing, Zimmerman claims he is jobless, debt-ridden and burning through money on vacations.

Zimmerman says he’s been unable to find a job since he was acquitted last year for the murder of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

During the trial Zimmerman and his wife went into hiding, but after his acquittal he began his descent into a very public meltdown which included, but was not limited to: hitting his father-in-law, smashing up his ex-wife’s possessions, leaving a bullet-ridden target at her house, and later pointing a shotgun at his girlfriend.

He’s also been said to be suicidal, and according to the records, spends about $200 a month on psychological, psychiatric or mental health counseling.

His estranged wife, Shellie, told Katie Couric that she felt Zimmerman is “a ticking time bomb.”

In his divorce case, Zimmerman claims to have just $14,000 in total assets – most of it comprising of his 2008 Honda pickup – and carries a debt of around $2.5 million. Almost all of the money he owes belongs to his defense attorneys in his murder trial.

It’s staggering how much debt Zimmerman has accrued considering his brief moment of celebrity where conservatives couldn’t give him money fast enough. Apparently all of that is now gone. The legal defense fund that conservatives rushed to pour money into and once topped $400,000? All gone. And no sign of the painting he sold for $100,000 on eBay late last year, either. Zimmerman is absolutely broke.

Despite his destitution, Zimmerman claimed that he spends around $100 a month on vacations. It’s not specified where he goes to take some time off from his non-existent job, but one guess is gun shows and other publicity stunts.

In a perverse way, Zimmerman still serves as a hero to certain members of the pro-gun community and crowds come to shake the hand of a man whose only real accomplishment was to shoot an unarmed black teenager and not go to jail for it.

In March, Zimmerman emerged from hiding to sign autographs at an Orlando gun show where he was billed as a “featured guest.”

“The concept of being able to pay them back for what they did for me and seeing my supporters face to face was something I just couldn’t pass up,” Zimmerman said at the time.

His appearance wasn’t without controversy. After a backlash from people concerned over the fact that an admitted murderer was about to show up for autographs at a gun show, the venue told Zimmerman he had to do his appearance elsewhere. On Twitter, Zimmerman described it as “another company bowing to threats of being labeled racist.”

Late last year, Zimmerman was also spotted at a gun dealer in Florida looking to purchase a shotgun.

If Zimmerman is as poor as he claims to be, he may want to consider selling his most prized possessions: his mountain of guns.

While it’s true that he has a proven track record of violence and belligerence with guns, he is still technically allowed to own them. Zimmerman owns five guns and more than 100 rounds of ammunition. He has a .38-caliber handgun, a 9 mm handgun, a Glock 19 handgun, an AR-15 assault rifle, and it appears he did in fact purchase that shotgun because he has a Kel-Tec shotgun, as well.

While it’s inconceivable that Zimmerman would willingly give up his guns, it may come down to that. His very last potential cash cow – in the form of a lawsuit filed against NBC for allegedly slandering him – just went down in flames. On July 1st, a judge threw out the case. Zimmerman’s lawyer vows to appeal. So, in other words, more legal fees for Zimmerman to probably never pay back!
