Melanie Griffith divorcing Antonio Banderas after 18 years
Melanie Griffith filed for divorce from Antonio Banderas on Friday morning in Los Angeles Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple was married for 18 years. Griffith, 56, seeks spousal support from Banderas, 53, as well as physical custody for their 17-year-old daughter, Stella, with visitation rights. The pair co-starred in the 1995 romantic comedy Two Much together.
This is the Working Girl actress’ fourth divorce. She married Miami Vice star Don Johnson twice; Griffith and Johnson have a daughter, 24-year-old Dakota Johnson, who stars in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie. She was also married to Scarface actor Steven Bauer, with whom she has a 28-year-old son, Alexander Bauer. This is the second divorce for Banderas. The Desperado actor divorced his first wife, Ana Leza, in 1996 after nine years of marriage.
