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.

From what I've read, she battled alcoholism for a long time. I'm glad Antonio stayed with her during that time, but this is sad. I really wanted them to be together.

Somebody should call Madonna. Let her know Banderas is back on the market.

That's okay. She can use the bits snipped off her face over the years to grow a new husband.

These two share 3 brain cells together. Who ends up with the extra brain cell in the divorce?

So sad to hear this. You never read a lot of news so I figured all was well. But Spanish men are possessive and womanizing at times so I guess it it was good while it lasted

She would be trashing him if it were he asking for spousal support.

Wow.....she looks like an old piece of dried turkey skin with bloated fake lips slapped on it. Not pretty. Any woman who gets divorced 4 times surely is the problem....not her husbands!

Always though these two were a mismatch. Looks-wise, Melanie was never in the same league as Antonio-- and I'm talking even BEFORE all her ghastly surgeries. She has really eff'd her face up.

She looks like the women that sat next to me on a LA to New York flight, would not shut her trap and her breath smelled like a mixture of dead fish and horseradish. When see was leaving the plane I looked down and her seat was all wet. I think it was her..
