George Zimmerman Allegedly Threatened Beyoncé and JAY-Z Because of Trayvon Martin Docuseries

George Zimmerman reportedly threatened Beyoncé and JAY-Z in a series of text messages sent to a private investigator who was hired to help find interviewees for 'Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story.'

The Blast reports that George Zimmerman sent a series of threatening text and voicemail messages to Dennis Warren, a private investigator who was hired to find potential people to be featured in the JAY-Z produced docuseries, Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story. Zimmerman was reportedly set off when Warren left him a voicemail asking him to be a part of the series.

In return, he says Zimmerman called him 55 times and left 36 voicemails, 67 texts, and 27 e-mails in the span of nine days. These included threats to Beyoncé and JAY-Z. In the texts, recently obtained The Blast, Zimmerman reportedly told Warren to "tell Jay-Z he's a bitch and his wife is a broke whore." He also reportedly said "if [he sees] either of them in [his] life, they'll find themselves inside a 13 foot gator."

In May, Zimmerman was charged with a misdemeanor for stalking and harassing Warren. The PI reportedly wasn't the only one to get threats from Zimmerman, though. He allegedly contacted one of the docuseries' executive producers, Michael Gasparro, and other members of the production team with claims that they "harassed" his family.

JAY addressed the threats in DJ Khaled's "Top Off" earlier this year. "Meanwhile Georgie Porgie sinnin’ and sendin’ me threats/Save your breath, you couldn’t beat a flight of steps/Try that shit with a grown man / I’ll kill that fuckboy with my own hand."

The six-part docuseries,  Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story, premiered on the Paramount Network on July 30.
