Weeks after reports that the longtime Hollywood duo were on the brink of divorce due to Banderas’ wandering eye, the 54-year-old stepped out in Hollywood on Tuesday, sans wedding ring – and RadarOnline.com has the photos.
Wearing a tight Chrome Hearts tank and Lululemon black leggings with thigh-high boots, the actress, who has been married to the Spanish hunk for 15 years, wore only a diamond bauble on her middle finger – not the square-cut engagement ring that usually lives on her ring finger.
In April 2012, Star Magazine and Australian Women’s Day both reported that Banderas was spotted getting cozy with a blonde in a Cancun nightclub.
“He was partying and dancing with lots of women,” an eyewitness spilled to Star.
“They kissed more than once,” another witness told Woman’s Day, who had a video of the incident on their site. “At 2 a.m., Antonio and his beautiful blonde left together.”
In June, The National Enquirer reported that the couple was headed for a $50 million divorce due to Banderas’ philandering.
“There’s a lot of money at stake,” a family friend told The Enquirer. “Melanie’s a mess. Not only is she in jeopardy of losing the love of her life, but her career is in the toilet while Antonio’s star is continuing to rise.”
“I think Melanie’s self esteem hit an all time low and she believed Antonio was torturing her,” the friend continued. “For years, it's as if she’s been consumed with jealousy over his flirting and outspoken love for beautiful women. I don’t think Melanie can live with the constant fear that he might cheat.”
