Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel Announce Their Separation

Is there no hope for any of us?

After more than a decade of marriage (and 18 years of knowing each other!), one of Hollywood’s most enduring couples Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel announced on December 11 that they are separated. The couple has been married since January 2003, and the two co-starred in the musical Rent together in 2005, after meeting during the show's original Broadway run in the 90s.  According to their reps, the decision to split was mutual.


The pair have a son named Walker, born in 2009, and they say that they are making their son their top priority right now.

“Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs have jointly decided to separate at this time,” reps for the couple tell People magazine. “Their primary focus and concern is for their son. We ask that you respect their privacy during this time.”

Though we’re sad to see this dynamic duo split, we’re glad at least that they were able to do so as responsibly as possible.
