Melanie Griffith

Divorcing

Antonio Banderas

6/6/2014 8:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas DivorceMelanie Griffith has filed for divorce from Antonio Banderas ... TMZ has learned.

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.

I give Banderas kudos for hanging on as long as he did .... she'd drive me crazy after a few weeks.

My husband knows a guy at work that has been to their house on a few occasions and says he is an idiot. He's a womanizer and treated her badly.

That's too bad. I have nothing against either of them. They seem like nice enough people. 18yrs is a long time. Ashame they could not work it out.

It must be a little weird hanging with a middle aged woman who has the voice of a 6 year old girl.

He's escaping that nasty plastic surgery nightmare.

Anyone who was married twice to the same person should be on some kind of marriage blacklist.
