Many rumors have circulated lately, questioning the strength of the couple and announcing that they are on the verge of divorce.
Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith have been married for fifteen years, but recently there has been talk of an impending separation.
Speculation began in the spring, when Banderas was in Cancun for the opening of a new hotel. He was spotted in the company of a beautiful blonde in a club.
In addition, a video of the actor dancing with Indian actress Mallika Sherawat aboard a yacht was widely distributed today.
Mallika’s stylist, Ivan Bitton, told Radar Online: “Antonio was very attracted to Mallika and you can see that from the video. Antonio grabbed her from behind, and he was really into the dance. I could hear Antonio telling Mallika how beautiful she was.”
“However, as Antonio and Mallika were dancing together, a haggard looking woman in her 40s, came up to them and violently pushed Mallika out of the way. It was like a move out of the jungle or something. I just grabbed Mallika’s hand and we went downstairs, we didn’t want to deal with any drama.”
“You could tell Antonio was hot for Mallika, and she was flattered, but she would NEVER get involved with a married man, it’s totally not her thing,” he added.
Meanwhile, Melanie Griffith was spotted on the streets of Los Angeles without her wedding ring, something which fueled the rumors, but she was also seen wearing it at the Munich Film Festival in early July.
However, despite the fuss on the internet, two sources told People that the couple is still going strong.
“They seem absolutely fine. Honestly, they seem happy,” an insider told the magazine.
Currently, Banderas “is in Budapest filming and they’ll be together again as soon as he’s done,” another source close to the couple said. “They really are very happy together.”
Hopefully they won’t suffer the same fate as Johnny and Vanessa.
