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.

There is an ancient old adage in the old testament scrolls in Proverbs 22:6,that always reminds me "....a faithful man who can find?" More likely that is what happened wayward diverting eyes.

Surprised they lasted so long! Banderas has had to put up with her drug and plastic surgery addictions. Sad that all her plastic surgery has left her looking freaky.

She was pregnant when he married her. He probably had a Latino-Catholic sense of doing the right thing and married her and raised the kid to adulthood together. I would have left her the day she got that butt-ugly heart tattoo.

Woah, that's crazy. Didn't expect them to break up. Can't believe this is her fourth divorce. What the hell.

She has a long history of addiction. That wears on a marriage.

I'll give it more than a 50% chance he is the one who wants the divorce but seems to be a gentleman and wants to save face for her and let her file.

What's Melanie going to do with that big, ugly tattoo on her arm that says, ANTONIO?
I guess that's the least of her problems.

18 years in Hollywood time is like an eternity. They're one of the few couples i actually thought could make it work in the entertainment industry. Oh well. At least their daughter is almost an adult, so there's that at least.
