One of the longest-standing Hollywood marriages is ending as Melanie Griffith filed for divorce from Antonio Banderas.
56-year old Griffith cited “irreconcilable differences” as her reason for wanting to divorce 53-year old Banderas.
A spokesperson for the couple announced this statement: ‘We have thoughtfully and consensually decided to finalize our almost twenty years marriage in a loving and friendly manner honoring and respecting each other, our family and friends and the beautiful time we have spent together.’
Griffith is asking for child support and sole physical and joint legal custody of their 17-year-old daughter Stella.
The Working Girl star is also asking for spousal support.
