Melanie Griffith & Antonio Banderas Are Officially Divorced

I told you there was a lot of divorce news today! Back in June 2014, Melanie Griffith filed for divorce from Antonio Banderas after an impressive 18 year run, but it seemed their split was at a stand-still since then. Until now, that is. TMZ reports that the split is now a done deal and their marriage is officially over.

Court records show both signed the necessary legal docs to become officially single after 18 years of marriage.

Melanie was asking for full custody of their daughter, Stella, and also wanted spousal support. The custody issue resolved itself when Stella turned 18 last September.

A judge still needs to sign the docs to make everything official and that should happen in a matter of days.

It’s her 4th divorce and his 2nd.

Damn, her 4th? That’s intense. You’d think after the second or third, you’d be like, man, this whole marriage thing isn’t for me… I think I’ll chill on the nuptials for a while.

Ah, whatever. Shine on, you crazy diamond!

Melanie Griffith filed for divorce from Antonio Banderas

Bad news to kick off your weekend, everyone: Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas are getting divorced! They’ve been married for 18 years and have kept a pretty low profile throughout (always the secret to a healthier relationship in Hollywood), but alas, even keeping their privacy intact wasn’t enough to save their relationship, and Melanie filed for divorce this week.

From TMZ:

Griffith’s legal docs cite irreconcilable differences as the reason for ending her 18-year marriage.

In the docs — filed by disso-queen Laura Wasser — Griffith is asking for child support and sole physical and joint legal custody, although it’s pretty much moot — Stella, their only child together, turns 18 in September.

Griffith is also asking for spousal support.

The legal docs do not list the date of separation.

Sources connected with the couple tell TMZ … the divorce is amicable.  As for dividing property, we’re told it’s a little complicated … they have lots of real estate, both in the U.S. and Spain.

This is Griffith’s 4th divorce.   She was twice married to Don Johnson and also married to Steve Bauer.

It’s Banderas’ second divorce.

Shame, but I suppose shit happens. I don’t know why I particularly thought they were going to go the long haul considering I I have never thought much about them either way – they just seemed to be together for ages, and they’ve been through so much! Ah, well.
