Melanie Griffith isn’t erasing the memory of her 18-year marriage to Antonio Banderas.

The star, who filed for divorce on Friday, was photographed out and about in Los Angeles still wearing her wedding band – and exposing her upper-arm tattoo bearing her estranged husband’s name.

Griffith, 56, looked casually chic while running errands on Tuesday in a powder blue, sleeveless blouse and jeans.

The shocking news came after friends say the couple’s separate schedules led to separate lives. Though the split seems amicable – the actors released a joint statement saying they’re ending their relationship “in a loving manner honoring and respecting each other” – there’s plenty at stake in the upcoming proceedings.

Their combined fortune is rumored to total $50 million, and Banderas, 53, has made money with international investments in real estate.
