Melanie Griffith is officially divorced from Antonio Banderas.

From the looks of things, Melanie Griffith can wipe her tears with hundred dollar bills, if she'd like.

Melanie Griffith stands to make $65K each month from her estranged husband, which works out to an astounding $780K each year until she remarries or one of them kicks the bucket.

If I were Melanie Griffith, I believe it would be the single life for me.

That's not all Melanie Griffith stands to gain in the divorce.

She also gets the couple's Aspen, Colorado home, half of all profits, royalties and residuals Banderas earned from 2004-2014 and half of the proceeds from the sale of their LA digs.

Not too bad of a deal for Melanie Griffith. Of course she did lose her love and husband of two decades.

Back in June of 2014, Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas announced that their long-lived marriage had died.

The divorce proceedings likely took so long because the couple had an extensive list of properties to divvy up.

In the 2014 announcement they wrote, "We have thoughtfully and consensually decided to finalize our almost twenty years marriage in a loving and friendly manner honoring and respecting each other, our family and friends and the beautiful time we have spent together - Melanie & Antonio."

Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas have a 19-year-old daughter, Stella.

This is the fourth marriage to fall apart for Melanie Griffith.

Do you think Melanie Griffith will stay single for a while or do you think she'll get back on the proverbial horse?
