Shellie Zimmerman filed divorce papers Thursday to end her marriage to George Zimmerman, the infamous killer of Trayvon Martin who was acquitted in July.
"The documents have been received by the Seminole County clerks" in Florida, said her lawyer, Kelly Sims, in response to a Tweet by George's brother.
Robert Zimmerman wrote, "According to Shellie's atty Kelly Sims - Shellie is preparing to file 4 divorce. Docs have not yet been filed in Seminole Cty. Pray 4 them."
Shellie Zimmerman, a 26-year-old nurse, pleaded guilty to perjury August 28 for lying about the family's finances during one of George's pre-trial hearings.
She was sentenced to a year's probation and 100 hours' community service. In an interview with ABC News, she hinted that a divorce might be in the works.
