Melanie Griffith Files for Divorce From Husband of 18 Years, Antonio Banderas

tn Divorce attorney

After 18 years of holy matrimony and having shot down rumors of marital problems, Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas are calling it quits.

On June 6, Melanie Griffith filed for divorce in Los Angeles County Superior Court through her divorce attorney, Laura Wasser (a celebrity in her own right, specializing in celebrity divorce cases), citing grounds of irreconcilable differences.

The couple’s rep assures that the two are separating in a friendly manner, and that there is no bad blood between them. No separation date is yet known.

Griffith and Banderas have been married since 1996, and they have a daughter together who will be turning 18 later this summer.  Griffith has petitioned for child support, spousal support, joint legal and also sole physical custody for Stella.

The two first came together in the 1995 film, “Two Much.”  At the time, Griffith had been previously married four times, and Banderas only once.  Griffith also has other children, Dakota Johnson and Alexander Bauer, from her previous relationships.

In 2011, the two hosted a fund raiser for President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign.

Although Griffith is seeking spousal support, she is willing to pay her own divorce attorney fees, and it’s expected that the couple will divide their real estate in the U.S. and Spain.
