Melanie & Antonio Divorce

She Wants Custody

... of the Dogs!

EXCLUSIVE

0613-melanie-anotonio01
Melanie Griffith thinks she's a better parent than Antonio Banderas -- a dog parent, that is -- and she's dead set on getting custody of their three dogs in the divorce ... TMZ has learned. 

As TMZ first reported, Griffith filed for divorce on June 6 after 18 years of marriage to Banderas.

Child custody won't be an issue -- their daughter turns 18 in September -- but sources close to Griffith tell TMZ she is angling for custody of their three dogs. The former couple has one terrier mix and two shepherd lab mixes they adopted last February.

Our sources say Melanie is the better dog owner between herself and Antonio ... and the pooches mean the world to her.

TMZ's trying to make the dogs seem insignificant. Yet when a black man like Vick has anything to do with dogs, all of a sudden dogs are the holiest beings on TMZ.

Racism at it worst. Truth.

If it that big of an issue then they should pick. One should get the terrier and the other the 2 sheperd labs.

Melanie Dear...Stop going to Mickey Rourke's doctor, he's making you look like crap. I would rather see you age gracefully than turn out looking like that.

Melanie Looks like a dude with a penis! I can also see a Adam's apple if you look close enough. I can see why Antonia is leaving this tranny.
