We were definitely bummed to hear one of Hollywood’s most beloved couples, Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith have split after 19-years and one child together.
According to recent reports the couple who is currently divorcing separated earlier this year and had been facing trouble for some time before; and trouble has been identified by the name of Nicole Kempel!
Even though she is not to blame for the couple’s break, she has clearly kept Antonio entertained for some time now and could have been the last straw that moved 57-year-old Melanie to file for divorce in June.
RadarOnline claims that Banderas may have secretly already started a relationship with hot blonde banker Nicole Kempel! What’s more, an insider claims, he’s now “in love” with the statuesque Dutch woman, and ready to finalize his divorce from Griffith, so there is no turning back now.
So just who is Miss Kempel, here is what we know about her.
Banderas and Kempel were first spotted together tearing up the dance floor at the De Grisogno Fatale party in Cannes on May 20. Four days later, they enjoyed a romantic boat trip together off the coast of the French resort town.
They have secretly been on vacation together already and sources claim the 54-year-old actor is head over heals about the blonde and they just seem not willing to hide it anymore!
Kempel and Banderas were spotted partying together in St. Tropez last month, and then again hiking in Ferrat, France, on August 28.
Nicole –who is a lot younger than Banderas –is described as a Dutch investment consultant, so let’s say she is not only gorgeous but equally brainy. There is not much other info found or even pictures other than the ones from her appearances with Antonio, but we have to keep in mind until a few months ago we had no idea of her existence and that’s why she probably has to keep her stuff very private…until now.
Stay tuned, because for sure we’ll be hearing more about Kempel in the near future.
