Stars in Splitsville: Melanie Griffith, Antonio Banderas sign off

Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas have signed their divorce papers and are just waiting for a judge to sign off on them to make everything official.

The 57-year-old actress and the 54-year-old Spanish actor, who announced their split in June 2014 after 18 years of marriage, have both filed the final documents required to legally dissolve their union and are now waiting for a judge to sign off on them to make everything official.

Their divorce should be finalised later this week, according to gossip website TMZ.com, as the process should only take a matter of days.


Melanie, who has been divorced three times in the past, originally requested full custody of their daughter Stella, but the issue resolved itself when she turned 18 last September.

'Shrek' star Antonio previously insisted his relationship with Nicole Kimpel, whom he met at the Cannes Film Festival in the South of France in May 2014, had nothing to do with his split from the 'Working Girl' star a month later.

Speaking earlier this year, he said: "Nicole was not the motive of my divorce. I met her at the Cannes Festival last year but we both knew where we were. I was still a married man, although things were already heading the way they have now ended up.

"With Melanie all is good, thank God. Our marriage has finished in a very natural way, there were no ashtrays thrown to the head."

The 'Puss in Boots' star ended his first marriage to ex-wife Ana Leza in 1995.

Khloé Kardashian's divorce is almost official

Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom have both signed their divorce papers and their split will reportedly be made official within days.


The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star, who filed court documents seeking to end her four-year marriage to the former LA Lakers player in December 2013, following months of rumours he was addicted to drugs and cheating on her, and her estranged husband's have both finally signed and filed papers to make their split official within the next few days.

Court records, obtained by gossip website TMZ.com, show the 30-year-old reality TV star and the 35-year-old athlete, who tied the knot after a whirlwind month-long romance in September 2009, filed the remaining papers required to reinstate their single statuses last Friday.

The duo have already reached a property settlement and are now waiting for a judge to add his signature to the documents to make things official.

The judge previously threatened to dismiss the case after more than a year of inactivity amid speculation the former couple were attempting to reconcile.



Lamar recently insisted that Khloé was still "my girl," and a friend later explained: "It's no secret Lamar regrets a lot of things. He'd still love to be married to Khloé."

But the blonde beauty "finally reached a breaking point" and decided to move forward with their divorce after it was alleged he had started taking drugs again in May.
