Dakota Johnson appears to be having the best time of her life, especially after Chris Martin revealed that he dedicates the song "My Universe" to the Fifty Shades of Grey lead actress. However, there have been speculations that Dakota has been facing some family problems recently.
Reports have it that Dakota Johnson is worried about her mom, Melanie Griffith, after her sister Stella filed to drop the surname of the Miami Vice star. Keep on reading to know more details.
Dakota Johnson's Mom In Pain After Her Daughter Filed To Drop Her Maiden Name
Woman's Day Australia, in its upcoming October 18, 2021, issue, that Stella del Carmen Banderas Griffith has declared that she wants to shorten her name by omitting the extra last name. The court papers, according to the entertainment publication, stated:
"As well, I typically do not use ‘Griffith' when referring to myself or on documents, so dropping the name would match my regular use."
An unnamed insider told Woman's Day Australia that the filing "blindsided" Melanie Griffith, who is feeling sad that the sister of Dakota Johnson wants to remove her maternal surname. The tipster claimed:
"It came out of the blue. It's obvious Stella is closer with her father, but Melanie didn't realize Stella's feelings were so strong leaning his way, that she's get rid of her own mother's name. You really have to want to, to go as far as the courts over something like this."
For starters, Melanie Griffith and Spanish actor Antonio Banderas divorced in 2015. At the time, the Hawaii Five-0 star claimed that their marriage brought on "a bout of an epileptic seizure." Sometime in 2017, the veteran American actress-film producer said:
"I had two seizures [while on a yatch], one they took me off the boat. I had this major grand mal seizure, and they took me to hospital in Cannes, and then brought me back to the boat. And then I had another seizure…When I came back [to the United States], I was diagnosed with epilepsy. I got divorced, which was the real healer for me."
Sources claimed that Stella got so disappointed with Melania Griffith after she made such comments about her dad. An identified informant told Woman's Day Australia that:
"Stella is forever begging Melania to grow up, and she gets super frustrated with her."
Dakota Johnson, for her part, is said to be doing her best not to take sides between her mom and half-sister Stella. Another source claimed:
"Dakota knows how her mum can be, so she gets Stella's frustrations, but she also knows Melanie is a fragile person and she's worried about how much this will hurt her. Dakota hates drama and wishes that her mother could be spared all the stress, so she'll be furious."
Dakota Johnson, Melania Griffith, and Stella del Carmen Banderas Griffith have yet to comment on the reports about their alleged complex family war. So, avid followers of the How To Be Single actress should take all these claims with a huge grain of salt until everything is proven true and correct.
