Recently split from Melanie Griffith, Antonio Banderas has been spotted on more than one occasion with an attractive blonde, most recently in Saint Tropez.
¡HOLA! magazine identified Antonio’s new girlfriend as Nicole Kimpel, an investment consultant of Dutch nationality.
According to the magazine this is the same lady the actor was photographed with at the Cannes Festival.
However, Nicole is not the cause of the divorce between the actor and Melanie Griffith; friends close to the actor said that they met after Antonio’s separation.
After the divorce was announced, a source told “US Weekly” how the couple simply fell out of love.
There was no cheating on either side. They had fallen out of love awhile ago, a source said to “Us Weekly.” Their daughter Stella is about to be 18 in September, and they wanted to wait until [the] kids were grown and out of the house before they split up, but knew they would awhile ago. They stayed together for the sake of the kids.
Dutch women seem to have a reputation of getting the attention of famous Spanish men, Julio Iglesias was also captivated by a dutch.
In 2010, he married Miranda Rijnsburger, a dutch model, after 20 years and five children Iglesias tied the knot with Rijnsburger at a private ceremony in Marbella, Spain.
In documents obtained by TMZ, the actress filed for divorce from Banderas because of irreconcilable differences. Griffith wants spousal support, child support and sole physical custody with joint legal custody of their 17-year-old daughter, Stella.
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 and Antonio.
Griffith hired Laura Wasser, considered the best U.S. attorney in the field, who has handled the million-dollar divorces of other stars including Demi Moore, Angelina Jolie, Christina Aguilera and Scarlett Johansson.
