Antonio Banderas and wife Melanie Griffith are said to be on the verge of divorce after more rumors of his cheating and her addiction problems reared their ugly head again on Monday.
Banderas reportedly had a fling back in April with a woman he met in a bar and photos that were published of the two together allegedly sent Griffith spiraling out of control and back to abusing alcohol and prescription painkillers. Griffith has spent time in rehab more than once to try and overcome her addiction problems.
The handsome Banderas has been alleged to have had a number of affairs, routinely stepping out on Griffith. The two have not been intimate or shared a bed in some time according to those close to the situation. The couple is reportedly in marriage counseling but friends of the couple are predicting that the relationship will ultimately end in divorce.
Griffith is the daughter of actress Tippi Hedren who is best known for her roles in the Alfred Hitchcock movies "The Birds" and "Marnie." Griffith has had her share of failed relationships in the past including two rocky stints with actor Don Johnson.
Banderas has seen somewhat of a career revival with work in the animated "Shrek" series as Puss in Boots which spawned a feature movie of its own. The actor was raked over the proverbial coals for his role in the controversial movie "In Her Skin" where his character takes the rapist of his daughter and turns him into a woman in order to be raped as well.
While there are no official reports of Banderas and Griffith separating at this point friends and family both agree that it is really just a matter of time.
