Shellie Zimmerman, who filed for divorce on Thursday, told ABC's "Good Morning America" in an interview Friday that her husband is selfish.

She says the couple tried counseling, but added that in the end "George is all about George." She also said he has been verbally abusive and is making what she considers "reckless decisions."

She says her husband only spent three or four nights at their house since the trial ended in July and that she moved out Aug. 13.

George Zimmerman's attorney did not comment on the accusations.

She also is seeking an equal distribution of their checking accounts, trusts, partnerships and any unknown assets.

She asked that a judge prevent him from selling off any property.
