Sharon Stone slammed the claims she is dating Antonio Banderas. She said in a statement that Antonio is a brother to her and Melanie has been with her for each and every birth of her three children.
They are my family. I find this salacious, unkind, unfounded reporting to be the typical pretense of what passes as ‘journalism’ today, she added.
Stone responded to the report in the British Grazia magazine. According to the magazine the 56 year old actress and the newly single actor are having a secret romance, planning a getaway together in July. The report came shortly after Banderas and his wife Melanie Griffith announced their split in a statement:
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. The couple have one daughter, the 18 year old Stella.
Sharon has been friends with Melanie for almost 20 years and she was last seen with Antonio at the Cannes Film Festival.
