For nearly two decades, Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas were one of those odd couples that made everyone think love in Hollywood was possible, until telling the world back in 2014 that they were going their separate ways - now that their divorce is final, what is Melanie Griffith's net worth?
After what looked like an amicable split, the first details of the finalized divorce have hit news outlets including E! Online, which has broken down the numbers in an attempt to figure out what is Melanie Griffith's net worth now that she's separated from her superstar husband.
Court documents of the couple's divorce express that Melanie Griffith's net worth is the one getting the most out of the split, as Banderas was the higher earning of the pair: the "Working Girl" actress will be getting the couple's home in Aspen, Colorado, as well as half of all earnings Banderas earned from 2004 until 2014.
While Griffith was one of the biggest stars of the 80s, Banderas became the ultimate "Latin Lover" figure in Hollywood since the early 90s after arriving from Spain; due to this, the actor must pay Griffith monthly spousal support for the sum of $65,000, which means $780,000 a year until Griffith remarries or either of them dies.
The Daily Mail reports that, interestingly enough, Banderas and Griffith's finances were separated for the first years of their marriage until signing an agreement in 2004 regarding joining them, which is the one currently favoring Melanie Griffith's net worth.
The couple's former Los Angeles home will stay with neither one of them, and both Banderas' and Melanie Griffith's net worth will benefit from it: they'll be selling the house and splitting the profits between the two.
Ahead of the divorce, Celebrity Net Worth listed Melanie Griffith's net worth at $30 million, while her former husband and father of daughter Stella Banderas is worth $45 million.
