Celebrity divorces are nothing new for most Maryland movie fans. However, many may be shocked by the recent divorce filing by Melanie Griffith. She is seeking a divorce from Antonio Banderas, her husband of 18 years. Although the split is reportedly amicable, with $50 million in assets at stake this has the potential to become a complicated high asset divorce.

Americans are fascinated with celebrities. But when a high-profile couple goes through a high asset divorce, the media frenzy can be astonishing. That has been the case since news broke that Rupert and Wendi Murdoch would be getting a divorce. Rupert Murdoch is one of the wealthiest people in the country, and the fact that he himself is the chief executive of a major news corporation is only adding fuel to the fire. But, as a recent article noted, there may be some ways for the average Maryland resident to benefit from watching this type of divorce unfold.
From time to time the divorce of a high-profile couple will consume the news media, for a variety of reasons. When Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes divorced, much of the news coverage was focused on what would happen with the custody situation for their young daughter, Suri. When Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries divorced the media was obsessed with determining whether the whole marriage was a sham to begin with. Now, there is another couple in the headlines because they have filed for divorce, but this time the news is focused on much different topics: one of the parties himself is a member of the news media elite, and it is likely to be a high asset divorce - perhaps as high asset as it gets.
