Griffith is asking for child support and sole physical and joint legal custody of the couple’s teenage daughter Stella, who turns 18 in September. She is also requesting spousal support.

This is Griffith’s fourth divorce and Banderas’ second.

It is not clear when the couple separated, but Banderas and Griffith have been dogged by split rumors for years.
