Melanie Griffith

Divorcing

Antonio Banderas

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.

She just gets weirder looking and acting the older she gets. However, Antonio is still a class act. This is why celebrities should never get married. Because when they divorce, there's always a lot at stake.

Hope she is done getting married! No one wants to work at fixing a marriage anymore. At least they raised their daughter first.

She likely can't handle that as time goes by she gets older and really looks it and he though shows his age is still a handsome man that other women desire. she has been married to fame four times, after this one though she run is over and she knows it this is why she is suing for so much.

He is one of the worst actors of all time. I don't understand how she could get support from him.

I remember an interview a few years ago when she was overcoming an addiction to prescription pills... he said how helpful he was during her ordeal, and she came back and tried to smile, but had to admit he wasn't really all that helpful... that he didn't understand addiction. That certainly made me wonder if their marriage would last.
