Chillest exes ever Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas are officially divorced. TMZ has obtained copies of the divorce papers which both couples have signed, making them officially free agents.

The couple, who were married in 1996, will keep all of the money they each earned prior to 2004. However, that year, the two reportedly signed a postnup which means they’ll split all the money they made in their last 11 years together evenly. That includes Banderas’s profits from Shrek 2, Puss in Boots, and The Expendables 3.

Banderas will also pay Griffith $65,000 per month in spousal support.

Griffith will keep the couple’s home in Aspen (which you can buy now for a cool $8.9 million; the couple already sold their home in Los Angeles and are splitting the proceeds. Because they are so chill, they’re splitting the Picassos they owned: Griffith will get one of his “Painter and His Model” paintings, while Banderas gets a pencil drawing by the late Spanish artist, as well as a drawing by Diego Rivera.

Both Griffith and Banderas seem to have moved on from their split with ease. Antonio, 55, has been going strong with his 35-year-old girlfriend of more than a year, Nicole Kimpel, and is attending fashion school in London. Melanie, 58, has successfully covered up her couple tattoo and has been living it up with her pal, Kris Jenner.
