The 18 years marriage between Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith seems to have reached the end as Griffith filled for divorce on Friday. The official reason offered: irreconcilable differences.
Griffith petitioned for child support, joint legal custody and sole physical custody of daughter Stella, together with spousal support.
The two actors started their romance in 1995, on the set of “Two Much”. Now, after almost a year of rumors surrounding their potential separation, the first official step was taken.
Melanie Griffith has a tattoo on the right shoulder with a heart and Antonio’s name in it.
This is not the first divorce experience for either stars. Banderas went through one divorce and Griffith through 3.
According to unofficial reports, Banderas agreed to the divorce. No statement was released about the other wishes of the spouse. It is believed that the couple will end up splitting real estate properties but the custody petition might not be agreed.
