George Zimmerman’s estranged wife Shellie claims she has doubts about her husband’s innocence in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Shellie Zimmerman told the “Today Show” Thursday that she no longer feels like she can trust her husband.

“I’m conflicted,” she said. “I believe the evidence, but this revelation in my life has helped me take the blinders off. I think anyone would doubt that innocence because I don’t know the person I’ve been married to.”

The 26-year-old told NBC host Matt Lauer that her husband was different after he was acquitted of second-degree murder in July.

“He just kind of treated me like I was disposable,” she said. “He went on a victory tour without me.”

Married for six years, Shellie recently filed for divorce after a domestic dispute.

On Sept. 9, Shellie called 911 claiming her husband had a gun and was threatening to shoot her and her father. She said Zimmerman punched her Dad and smashed her iPad.

Zimmerman claimed that Shellie started the fight by hitting him over the head with the iPad.

Police did not find a firearm at the home, but Shelly maintains that he had one.

“I absolutely stand by my story,” she said. “I did not see a gun, but I know my husband. I saw him in a stance and a look in his eyes that I’ve never seen before. He was putting his hand in his shirt saying, ‘Please step closer, please step closer.’ Logically I assumed he had a gun on him.”

Neither party pressed charges, but Shelly said she regrets having not done so.

Shelly told Lauer that the marriage is “irretrievably broken.”

“I felt like I was living a life with him and that we were going to rebuild after this, but he had other plans,” she said.
