Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas are going their separate ways after 18 years of marriage. According to TMZ, the actress filed for divorce from Banderas, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split. According to the website, Griffith, 56, is asking for child support and sole physical and joint legal custody of the couple's daughter, Stella, 17. She also asks for spousal support in the documents, filed by attorney to the stars Laura Wasser. The Working Girl star and the Spaniard, 53, have battled breakup rumors for years. The two met in Miami while on the set of 1993’s Two Much.
Hasta la vista
Jennifer Lopez is also a single woman, having split for real from Casper Smart. Those transgender flirtation rumors may have been too much to bear for the American Idol judge. A source told People a more politically correct reason: “The relationship had just run its course.”
But regarding their Instagram “chat,” Sofie Vissa told In Touch that she/he and Smart were trading racy photos and shared one of the fit dancer in his boxers.
Still, Vissa feels guilty. “I didn’t reach out to Casper for what it led to,” she tells the magazine. “It’s something Casper and Jennifer need to talk about. They need to figure out or fix whatever is wrong. He is looking to fill some void.”
Mad about Jane
The American Film Institute’s celebration of Jane Fonda was like a who’s who of Hollywood women. Meryl Streep, Sally Field, Sandra Bullock, Lily Tomlin and Cameron Diaz were among the actresses saluting the 76-year-old Oscar winner, who accepted AFI’s 42nd Life Achievement Award Thursday at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre. Guests at the private ceremony — which is set to air as a special on TNT June 14 — included Chelsea Handler, Melanie Griffith, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Gay Harden, Rosario Dawson, activist Eve Ensler and Disney president Anne Sweeney. Tomlin described Fonda as “an evolutionary agent for our species.”
