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.

Melanie and Antonio were a SUCCESSFUL couple.

With a LOT of good years together.

SO tough to pull the plug...

Wow. She needs to be glad he has stuck with her for as long as he has. She should also be thinking about how she isn't getting any younger and she certainly doesn't look that good anymore. Perhaps she may need to rethink things. After all, I don't think men will be lining up at her door wanting to date her.

Wow. I am surprised he stuck around as long as he has. Maybe she needs to rethink the divorce. I really don't see men lining up to date her. She isn't pretty anymore, just looks like an old has been. She should be glad she has a man like Antonio. Matter of fact she should be glad she has a man at all.

How poor are you to ask for child support for a child that will be 18 in September ?! She so old so is he . I dint know will people divorce when their this old . Don't you want someone who you know and trusts to help wipe your butt . Don't you want someone to take care of you , you won't find a 20 something to take care of you .

She should not be granted sole physical custody-he has parental rights too. Boy she really looks terrible for someone her age

I couldnt imagine being 18 years old and either of my parents doing this for child support knowing they both had successful careers and income .. How embarrassing for the near to be 18 year old.

why does melanie need spousal support?

what is all this legal rubbish she is drawing up in do***ents. good gawd. she alone has enough cash to feed a family of 12 three meals a day... probably house them too.

Compared to most Hollywood marriages, this one lasted a lifetime. Sad to see.

Sorry, A MUCH younger good looking man and an older woman NEVER works forever….Only until the Botox stops working. This is a given especially in Hollywood! What were they thinking ?…? Although 18 years in Hollywood is Forever!

She's looking rough. Women sure have it rougher during the aging process... I don't think she's been in anything for a long time, so she's draining the meal ticket apparently.
