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.

She is white trash. I have met her in person in palm springs. She has a real sewer mouth in public and dresses like a prostitute. No class. He should never have married her to begin with.

I give these two mass credit for staying together till there child grew up versus your typical celebs who get married make children t g then divorce. J lo, Brittney spears to name a few make babies then bail when the spark fizzles with little to none concern of what a traumatic event this is on the children .

Whites And Mexicans Don't Mix. Dunno Why He Married That Pale Plain Jane Woman. There's Nothing Wrong With Interracial Couples, But These 2 Just Always Seemed Odd Together

FOURTH DIVORCE? *She* is the problem. If she knew herself, she'd stay single & not marry again. It clearly isn't for her.

I wouldn't want to wake up to that face anyway. She has ruined her looks like other actresses. She was so insecure it radiated through her. Very sad. Wish her well but saw this coming years ago.
As far as Antonio, he's kinda creepy.
