Melanie Griffith is NOT trying to win back Antonio Banderas, despite an inaccurate tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this claim. We’re told it’s “not true.”

According to OK!, the actress wants to reconcile with her ex-husband two years after their breakup. The ex-spouses finalized their divorce last December, but now the outlet alleges she regrets doing so. A so-called “source” tells the magazine, “She’s realized that even with his flaws, Antonio was still a great catch. She misses the passion they shared.”

Banderas, however, began dating a Dutch banker named Nicole Kempel shortly following his split from Griffith, and the actor is still seeing her. But the tabloid’s “insider” further claims the actress isn’t concerned about her ex’s relationship, saying, “Mel can be impulsive, and she isn’t afraid to go after what she wants.”

But Gossip Cop looked into this claim, and we’re exclusively assured by a reliable source close to Griffith that she isn’t pining for her ex-husband or hoping to repair their marriage. We’re told the outlet’s claim otherwise is simply “not true.” Unfortunately, we’re not particularly surprised by this tall tale. Gossip Cop called out OK!’s sister publication, the National Enquirer, for wrongly reporting in June 2015 that Griffith and Banderas were getting back together. Obviously, time has proven that claim to be completely false, and the same goes for this latest story about the exes.
