Sept. 26 (UPI) -- In a new interview with the "Today" show's Matt Lauer, Shellie Zimmerman discusses her evolving feelings about her estranged husband, George Zimmerman, and his involvement in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Shellie, who filed for divorce on Sept. 5, said the subsequent domestic altercation changed the way she saw her husband and his claim that he acted in self defense.

I'm conflicted on that,'' Shellie said of Zimmerman's acquittal. "I believe the evidence, but this revelation in my life has really helped me take the blinders off and start to see things differently."

A few days after the divorce filing, Shellie said Zimmerman showed up at her door, smashed her iPad and punched her father. In a phone call to police, Shellie claimed he had a gun, but later declined to press charges.

Asked whether the incident had any affect on Zimmerman's assertion that he acted in self-defense, Shellie said it gave her "doubts."

"I think anyone would doubt that innocence because I don't know the person that I've been married to," she added. "I have doubts, but I also believe the evidence."

Shellie still insists that her soon-to-be ex-husband didn't pursue Martin because he was black.

"He did not profile Trayvon Martin," she said.
