Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith divorce official

Melanie Griffith and Antonio BanderasAntonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith‘s divorce will reportedly be confirmed on December 20.

The two will officially terminate their 18-year marriage later this month after filing for divorce last year, with documents seen by Entertainment Tonight showing that Banderas will pay Griffith $65,000 per month in spousal support.

What’s more, all of the money the duo made on their respective movies between 2004 and 2014 – including Shrek 2, Puss in Boots and The Expendables 3 – will be divided evenly.

However, a previously filed post-nuptial agreement means Antonio will be allowed to retain his earnings from before 2004, which includes money-spinning movies such as The Mask of Zorro and Spy Kids.

Earlier this year, Antonio said he will always love Melanie, despite the breakdown of their marriage.

He said: ”We’ll always be friends, I hope. We speak to each other every few days and I’m very happy that we’re not like many couples, where people can become bitter and angry after their marriages end. I don’t see any reason for that. It’s much better to try and remember and honor all the beautiful and happy moments you’ve enjoyed. [We were married for] a very long time and I believe Melanie wants to stay in contact, as do I. Melanie is a woman whom I have loved, whom I still love and whom I will always love.”
