Taye Diggs And Idina Menzel Call It Quits After 10 Years Of Marriage
After 10 years of marriage, Taye Diggs and his wife, actress Idina Menzel, are throwing in the towel. A representative for the couple has confirmed the split to People.
“Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs have jointly decided to separate at this time,” a spokesperson told People. Their primary focus and concern is for their son. We ask that you respect their privacy during this time.”
According to the HuffPost, the pair met in the mid 90s when they were co-starring in “Rent” on Broadway. They eventually married in Jan. 2003. They share one son, Walker Nathaniel Diggs, who just celebrated his fourth birthday this past September. With both Taye and Idina working in Hollywood, we can totally see how their hectic schedules could place a strain on their marriage. Earlier this year Idina told People that marriage is a challenge, but revealed that both she and her husband were working hard to keep it all together.
“We work at it. I’m not going to glamorize it or glorify it — we go through tough times like everybody else, but we love each other very much. We try not to be away from each other for more than two weeks at a time, and we try to find new ways to communicate,” Idina said.
It’s unfortunate that Taye and Idina were unable to work things out. Hopefully they find a way to keep things amicable for the sake of their son.
