Melanie Griffiths divorces Antonio Banderas
US actress Melanie Griffith has filed for divorce from fellow Hollywood A-lister Antonio Banderas, the TMZ celebrity news website has reported.

Griffith cited irreconcilable differences in seeking to end the Tinseltown power couple’s 18-year marriage, TMZ reported on Friday, citing legal documents.

“We have thoughtfully and consensually decided to finalize our almost 20 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 and Banderas said in a statement issued by their publicist.

Golden Globe-nominated Banderas, 53, is known in the United States for movies including the Shrek franchise and 1998’s The Mask of Zorro.

He also featured in several Pedro Almodovar movies.

The 56-year-old Griffith, who was nominated for an Oscar for 1988’s Working Girl, has three previous divorces.

Her former husbands include actor Don Johnson.

It is the second divorce for Banderas.
