George Zimmerman Allegedly Threatened To Kill Beyoncé & Jay-Z In A Series Of Disturbing Texts

Disturbing text messages from George Zimmerman have emerged, in which he allegedly threatened both Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z during the filming of Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story

Jay-Z co-executive produced the six-part documentary series, which chronicles Zimmerman's murder of 17-year-old Trayvon, the subsequent trial, and the "Black Lives Matter" movement that transpired as a result. Zimmerman claimed self-defense using Florida's controversial "Stand Your Ground Law," and got off. He's been free ever since. 

Private Investigator Dennis Warren allegedly reached out to Zimmerman to see if he wanted to appear in the docu-series, which is what prompted Zimmerman to send "over hundreds of harassing messages along with voicemails," Hollywood Life reported. 

Among the messages, obtained by The Blast, were the threats to Beyoncé — who Zimmerman called a "broke whore" — and Jay-Z. He promised the two would "find themselves inside a 13 foot gator." 

Just a few months ago, Zimmerman was charged with stalking and harassing Warren. The PI also recently fought a subpoena from Zimmerman, which demanded he see the records of the investigation. Warren refused, insisting the information would put the people he spoke with at risk. 

According to The Blast, Zimmerman threatened another one of the show's executive producers, Michael Gasparro. He messaged Gasparro, letting him know he knew his address. Zimmerman also told him that members of the Genovese family — who are allegedly a powerful mafia family — were looking for him. 

The new details about the threats come after the New York Daily News' initial report in December 2017. At the time, Jay-Z didn't respond; however, a number of people came to his defense as they are now with both him and his wife. 

Zimmerman's texts will reportedly be unveiled in the final episode of Rest in Power, which airs Monday at 10 p.m. ET on the Paramount Network.
