Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith are getting a divorce, after having been married for a little over eighteen years and having a daughter, Stella together.

A source claims that the Two Much co-stars, who met on the set of the 1995 romantic comedy, fell out of love a while ago, but "stayed together for the sake of the kids."

American actress Melanie is also filing for spousal support, on top of sole physical and joint custody over their daughter Stella, who turns eighteen in September. Melanie has two other children, Alexander Bauer and Dakota Johnson from previous marriages to Steven Bauer and Don Johnson respectively. Antonio divorced his wife, Ana Leza in 1996 after being married for nearly nine years.
