(Newser) – Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas say their divorce is amicable, but the inevitable rumors running wild suggest otherwise. Radar has heard a couple stories about Banderas—one source says he took an Indian actress on a romantic getaway in 2012; a Brazilian woman says he hit on her; even Sharon Stone had to deny a rumor that she seduced Banderas—and now the gossip site has a video taken during the Cannes Film Festival in May showing Banderas with a mystery woman, walking near a port and then into a luxury resort. Griffith filed for divorce two weeks later.

They're not the only couple weathering cheating rumors—in the wake of the news that Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres are having marriage troubles, Celeb Dirty Laundry suggests that Ellen may have cheated on Portia. The site points out that DeGeneres was, much like Banderas, photographed with a mystery brunette in February, around the time rumors of trouble in paradise first started cropping up. Apparently some say cheating led to Portia's downward spiral and eventually rehab—and rumor has it Ellen may have kept cheating on her wife even after de Rossi went into rehab, and that divorce may be imminent. There's no video "evidence" of that, but to see Antonio with his mystery brunette, click here.

I would say, the split was primarily, "because Melanie turned very very UGLY, from cigarettes". She wrinkled up, like a prune. From the coffin nails. And this, the premature aging, "the ugliness", caused by cigarettes, will, eventually, "take the physical love, aspect, out of any marriage". No one, would love, a cigarette smoker. And, no one would stay with them, long term. Because, they will turn, VERY VERY UGLY, over time. Then, "you'll be stuck with them". Living with, "a catchers mitt" From cigarettes. YOU DUMP HER. You have my permission. And find, "a clean girl" Or guy. But DUMP ASAP A smoker. They will ruin you, too.
