Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel Call It Quits After 10 Years of Marriage


Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs


No, you're not having a nightmare (unfortunately). Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel are splitting up, and, as such, tragically putting an end to their decade-long marriage. Please take a moment to plan your freakouts accordingly.

Sadly this isn't just another wild Hollywood rumor. People magazine actually spoke with the couple's reps, who confirmed that the (former) dynamic duo have indeed decided to go their separate ways.

"Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs have jointly decided to separate at this time," their reps told the site. "Their primary focus and concern is for their son. We ask that you respect their privacy during this time." No specific reason was cited for the split.

Diggs and Menzel met as co-stars in the original production of the Broadway musical 'Rent' during the mid-'90s. They were married years later in 2003 and eventually welcomed a son, Walker, in 2009. Menzel had spoken with the site about the state of her marriage earlier this year, admitting that things were a little rocky at times.

"We work at it," she stated. "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."

Diggs is best known in the TV realm for his turn on the popular ABC series 'Private Practice,' which aired its final episode earlier this year. He's also recently dropped by the set of 'New Girl' to flirt with Zooey Deschanel's character, Jessica Day. Meanwhile, Menzel has made several guest appearances on FOX's hit comedy-musical, 'Glee,' as Rachel's biological mother.

Are you sad to see yet another Hollywood romance come to an end? Did anyone else just go out and buy a ton of chocolate and ice cream? (No? Just me?) Sound off on your thoughts and feelings in the comments below!

Speak for yourselves. There are many other types of articles that don't appeal to me on this site, guess what happens then? NOTHING.. I simply don't read them. One person cannot please everyone. If the title offends you, don't read it. I am sorry to see the end of this relationship, personally. I'll shed five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred tears for them and their family.

Oh Kelly, stooping low for this one. Who really cares about lurid divorces. It isn't as if you posted a story regarding a Hollywood Dentist divorce and the shenanigans involved culminating in the action. besides we can never truly know not only what transpired but if one was a beard, cough Tom Cruise cough,under contract.To glorify people no better than McDonalds servers saddens me.
