A smooth ending

Banderas and Griffith met during the making of the movie two more back in 1995 and got married a month later. In 2014 they announced that they were going to dissolve their marriage amicably and sources have confirmed that they have finally come to an agreement on all matters and aspects of the divorce. Their divorce attorneys have worked together and everything has been finalized and they only await the judges signature to declare them officially single.

Houston Texans’ star Arian Foster and wife set to divorce

Star running back of the NFL team Houston Texans, Arian Foster, and his wife Romina Lombardo, are calling it quits. Lombardo revealed in an interview that she contemplated the decision a lot but finally decided that she was going to divorce Foster, as reported by chron.com. They have two children together and their divorce attorneys maintain that they will remain on friendly terms.

There is speculation that the split was initiated when pictures of Foster with a blonde, no name, but voluptuous, student named Brittany Norwood who was probably looking for a payday surfaced on the Internet while he was married to Lombardo. So Norwood did not know Foster was already married with kids?

Norwood was pregnant and claimed that Foster was the father of the child she was carrying and even said that a DNA test had virtually confirmed that claim. Foster recently settled a child custody and support case with Norwood. He also said in an interview after the divorce filing that he will always be there for Lombardo and he was grateful for the wife he was to him and the mother she was and still is to their lovely children.
