Antonio Banderas - Melanie's in Rehab for Drug Abuse

Antonio Banderas explains Melanie Griffin stay in rehab
Actress Melanie Griffith checked into rehab after fearing she was too "weak" to resist her urge for drugs, her husband Antonio Banderas has revealed. The 52-year-old plastic surgery loving lady has been seeking treatment at the Cirque Lodge in Utah since the end of August. Representatives for the star had previously refused to disclose the reason for her stay but her Spanish actor/hubby Banderas has spoken out, admitting that she turned to rehab in hopes of preventing a relapse.

Banderas tells Ellen DeGeneres, "Let me explain to you. It was actually in some magazine that I said that I gave an ultimatum to my wife. That I present the matter of divorce (sic) because she has been involved in addictions and blah, blah, blah. ...
"Melanie has been addicted for many years and we always came out. We said it out loud. It was OK, we were never embarrassed of the situation but ... she was clean and sober for six years."

Addiction to any kind of drug/alcohol/etc is a horrible demon to battle, so we hope Melanie gets better. She also needs to stop modifying her face before she becomes unrecognizable!


  1. Anotnia Banderas is the man! does anyone know if she is doing better now? I haven't been staying updated.

  2. If you’re like so many young people who become involved with drug and alcohol abuse, you may find that you’ve fallen behind in your education goals. Addiction might be causing you to place less emphasis upon things like goals in general, affecting your willingness and capacity to learn and retain information while you’re using or recovering from drug use.
