Melanie filed divorce papers citing Irreconcilable Differences (does anyone ever get divorced for any other reason in Hollywood?)
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.
18 years!! That’s a long time. I’m really taken a back by this. I thought these two would be together forever. Why? I don’t know. I guess they seemed to really love each other. Sad stuff. Happy Friday.
