Was there another woman involved in Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith's sudden separation?

Recently, videos emerged of Banderas, 53, and Mallika Sherawat, 37, dancing at a Cannes party in 2012. Sources now speculate that the Bollywood star is the reason for the split. Sherawat, however, claims that the rumors are absolutely untrue. 

"Antonio Banderas is a wonderful man, a great dancer, and an acquaintaince of mine," she told E! News"I did not go on any vacation with him, and I'm sorry he's going through a divorce."

An alleged friend of Sherawat, Ivan Britton, told Radar Online that the actress and Banderas had a "lot of PDA" at the Cannes party. Britton also told the tabloid that the pair went on a romantic vacation together. 

"Ivan Britton is not my best friend," she told E! "I hired him as a stylist at Cannes and then fired him. I'm sure he released the video. I don't know what he's even talking about now. I haven't been in touch with Ivan since I fired him." 

Banderas and Griffith, 56, announced their divorce on June 6. "We have thoughtfully and consensually decided to finalize our almost twenty years of marriage in a loving and friendly manner," they wrote in a joint statement.
