Melanie Griffith Files For Divorce

Surprising no one who comes here daily, Melanie Griffith finally filed for divorce from Antonio Banderas. The couple has been married for 18 years but over the past several years they have barely spent any time together while Antonio squired a bunch of different women. Does anyone use the word squired? Melanie is asking for child support which she will probably get, but Stella is almost 18 so that won't last long. Melanie is also asking for spousal support and she should ask for a ton. She deserves it. Hell, it will cost thousands just to rid herself of all her Antonio tattoos. I'm glad she is finished trying to make it work because he made no effort at all and she should have left him two years ago when this all started.

PugsterMom said...

Lothario. Does anyone use that word anymore? How about douchebag?

derek harvey said...

This is considered breaking news? Who cares about these 2...the worse is going to be reading about boring Dakota next year...

VIPblonde said...

Oh hayyy, Antonio!

MISCH said...

Wow, never thought she'd do it

Violet said...

'to squire: to escort (a woman), as to a dance or social gathering.'
Well that all sounds nice and innocent, I can't even imagine what Melanie's got her knickers in a twist about.

Riven said...

@Pugster Lothario is an A++ List reference and is thusly always acceptable.

Regarding Antonio: He's just so uncouth! But Assassins was a fantastic movie.

Regarding Melanie: Take him to town for every damn penny.

@Derek This is why I still care :)

nancer said...

yeah, it must be really bad because i thought there was nothing that would ever be enough to make her pull the trigger. she's clung to him for so long.

didn't he leave his last wife for her?

derek harvey said...

Always sad when a long term couple can't make it work. I always felt she loved him more than he loved her.

FrenchGirl said...

How many rehab did Melanie during her marriage? 3 at least .The last was 5 years ago

FrenchGirl said...

How many crazy scenes of Melanie? I remember a blind on a drunk crazy Melanie wanting to inject some stuff on her lips during a dinner.
Maybe Banderas was tired of crazy jealous Melanie and that he wanted to divorce but she refused.She always was insecure on their difference of age.He divorced for her.
Don't write she deserves his money because he cheated her since 2 years whereas he was behind her during their marriage.He dropped some projects for staying with her.He supported her during her rehabs

Riven said...

She deserves his money.

Henriette said...

I always felt sorry for Melanie. She really never had a chance. If you ever read the autobiographies of the kids during her era, Melanie was either being raped or drugged by some man. A lot of men worked her over.

sandybrook said...

Add Mr. X blinds to the Melanie reveals and things will be superb here all weekend. Just full of joy and happiness!

Tigercat said...

I agree with @French Girl Antonio stuck with her through all the rehab years.

Not saying that his jeeping is cool. Just that there's probably a whole lot more to this story.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Frankly, I'm shocked this lasted 18 years. I'm old enough to remember that when they got married, I was giving them 2 years, tops!

Sherry said...

Isn't it rumored he has a kid also? Yes Melanie was always clingy and insecure. Hollywood is a cruel mistress.

Dingle Barry said...

Remember years ago when everyone bought their life long love and forever together stuff? Seems like they have been married 30 or 40 years, not just 18.

Paint Chips said...

I wonder if he's the one insisting on a divorce but she is the one filing to save face (not that there's a lot of hope saving that face.)

Or, alternatively he doesn't want the divorce because he doesn't want any of his girlfriends to get the idea that he's free to marry them.

Froggy England said...

Or maybe he has a significant other,,,,,

auntliddy said...

Be strong Mellie, be strong. No drug or drink will make u feel better. Be good to self!

Froggy England said...

Well I might have to disagree with you there @auntiddy. I always find a large bar of galaxy and a bottle of wine can make me feel better for an evening at least,,,:-))

auntliddy said...

French, she said that may have been HIS perception but that he was not around when she was in rehab.

auntliddy said...

Maybe she plain got tired.

teresa crane said...

@Tiger I love you for including the word jeepin in your comment.

I'm proud of Melanie. She may be a bit cray cray but she deserves better.

Sand Bahe said...

how you found him is how you'll lose him. Yes he was married when she met him, he left his wife for her. But for some reason I just feel so sad for this girl, her mom let her run wild when she was just a child herself and she seems to have spent her life wrapped in insecurity. Hang tough Melanie.

They were both married when they met so they are both cheaters.

Why should she be shocked that he'd cheat on her when she was the other woman for his first round of adultery ?

jo davies said...

I'm glad Melanie filed... I hope its onwards and upwards for her as it should be ie Mel don't do a demi and fall apart over some douche who is not worth it.

MadLyb said...

They're both cheaters. I guess if one cheats more than the other, it can become a problem.

My friend used to clean Melanie Griffiths and Don Johnson's house in Aspen. Melanie gave her some clothes, and I can attest that, that woman is tiny. Even a slender 14 year old couldn't fit into her stuff.

MadLyb said...

The only interesting thing my friend had to report is that Melanie and Don sat around chain-smoking all day.

Lula Surber said...

@VIPblonde I love that movie. Thanks for the memories! As for Melanie - Seriously? I don't have a shred of compassion for her. She's jumped from guy to guy plenty in her lifetime. I have no doubt if she was still young and hot she'd still be doing it. Getting older IS a bitch. I don't remember if she and Don were still together at the time but Antonio was definitely married when she set her sites on him. How can people like that EVER be surprised when it ends the same way for them. He told her a long time ago if she didn't stop fucking up her face he was going to leave her. Shit it's not like he dumped her the first time there was trouble. There's been trouble for years. I don't find her sympathetic in the least. I'm not saying he's someone to look up to but if he wanted out and she didn't want to give him a divorce what is he suppose to do? You can't force someone to stay in a relationship that doesn't want to be there. I don't see why he should pay her a dime in support. They've both had decent careers let them split the money and go their separate ways. Divorce happens all the time. I don't see why this is a big deal at all.

Actually, I thought she'd ride that boat over the waterfall.

And he'd stay in the boat, as long as he was steering.

Oh well. Wonder what proverbial straw broke the poor camel?
