George Zimmerman allegedly made threatening texts towards the Carters.
During the filming of the documentary, “Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story“, which Jay-Z co-produced, Zimmerman allegedly sent a series of text messages aimed at the superstar couple. The messages were obtained by The Blast. In the messages, he called Beyonce a “broke whore” and called Jay-Z a b***h.
“And I’m bringing hell with me. Oh yea and tell Jay-Z he’s a b***h and he is a broke whore,” Zimmerman wrote. “If I see either of them in my life, they’ll find themselves inside a 13-foot gator.” According to a source close Michael Gasparro, who executive-produced the Paramount Network series alongside Jay-Z, the texts are legitimate.
The messages will be shown on the finale of the series on Monday, September 10. Zimmerman was acquitted in 2013 of killing 17 -year-old Trayvon Martin. This is not the first time Zimmerman has made threats towards the Carters or the production team. During a December 2017 interview with The Blast, when it was announced that the Carters were making the film, Zimmerman allegedly threatened Gasparro saying, “anyone who f***s with my parents will be fed to an alligator.”
