Melanie Griffith has filed for divorce from her husband of 18 years Antonio Banderas, their rep confirms to JustJared.com.

The 56-year-old actress filed for divorce from her 53-year-old husband citing irreconcilable differences on the papers, where she also requested child support and sole physical and joint legal custody of their daughter Stella, who turns 18 in September. Melanie is also asking for spousal support.

“We have thoughtfully and consensually decided to finalize our almost twenty years marriage in a loving and friendly manner honoring and respecting each other, our family and friends and the beautiful time we have spent together – Melanie & Antonio” the duo said in a statement.

This is Melanie‘s fourth divorce and Antonio‘s second. Melanie was previously married to Don Johnson – the couple’s daughter is Dakota Johnson of Fifty Shades of Grey fame.
