Melanie Griffith files for divorce from Antonio Banderas

By Kaitlyn Frey,

Melanie Griffith filed for divorce from Antonio Banderas, ending their 18 year marriage, on Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court citing irreconcilable differences.

TMZ leaked a divorce document that reveals that Griffith is asking for child support in addition to sole physical and joint legal custody. However, the couple's only daughter Stella will be turning 18 in September anyway. No separation date was listed in the legal documents.

According to People, the couple said in a statement from their rep, "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."

This will be Griffith's fourth divorce. It will be Banderas' second.
