TMZ has reported that actress Melanie Griffith has filed for divorce from actor Antonio Banderas following 15 years of marriage. Melanie cites irreconcilable differences and is asking for spousal support, child support and sole physical custody and joint legal custody. Their daughter Stella will turn 18 in June.
Sources told TMZ that the divorce is amicable. However the division of property will be a bit more complicated.
This will be Griffith’s fourth divorce and Banderas second divorce. Griffith was twice married to actor Don Johnson and married to actor Steve Bauer.
A couple of years ago there was rumors according to PerezHilton that Antonio allegedly cheated on Melanie. Maybe their marriage has been on the rocks since then?
Wow! After 15 years of marriage they call it quits. Following three previous marriages. I would think you would finally get it right the fourth go around. However, statistics do say that the likely of getting a divorce in your second or third marriage are much higher than your first. Probably because you have been through divorce and have endured the hardship and survive. You are familiar of how it works. And also succeeded in marrying again.
I hope the odds are in my favor. I am not looking to have two more marriages. Just one more chance where I get it right.
I wish them the best.
Will Melanie make it for marriage number 5?
