Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith Divorcing After 18 Years of Marriage (VIDEO)

News of another Hollywood couple's demise hit the web today — and this one's a doozy!

Melanie Griffith is filing for divorce from Antonio Banderas, seeking to end their 18-year marriage. TMZ confirms the breakup with scans of the legal documents she submitted.

That news eclipses today's report that Jennifer Lopez is splitting from Casper Smart after three years considering Melanie and Antonio have been together more than six times as long!

In the docs, Melanie cites irreconcilable differences, asks for child support, sole physical custody, and joint legal custody. As TMZ notes, however, their only child, daughter Stella, is nearly 18, so the issue of custody is practically irrelevant.

Despite those aforementioned "differences," sources tell the site that Antonio and Melanie are splitting amicably.

The two movie stars met on the set of 1995's Two Much and married on May 14, 1996.

Antonio, 53, is the Spanish leading man known for his roles in movies like The Mask of Zorro, Philadelphia, and Desperado. Melanie, meanwhile, is best known for her Oscar-nominated performance in 1988's Working Girl. The 56-year-old actress is also the daughter of The Birds star Tippi Hedren and the mother of Fifty Shades of Grey's Dakota Johnson.

Here's wishing them a drama-free separation.
