Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs have split. On Dec. 11, a rep for the couple confirmed the news with People Magazine. Idina and Taye were married for 10 years and they have one child together. Their son, Walker is 4-years-old.
"Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs have jointly decided to separate at this time. Their primary focus and concern is for their son. We ask that you respect their privacy during this time," said their rep. Idina and Taye met in the 90's when they both starred in "Rent" on Broadway.
Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs experienced plenty of ups and downs like many couples did. While they always seemed so happy together, their Hollywood lives have gotten in the way of their romance on more than one occasion -- and that's normal. While some people manage to hang on for the wild ride, most find it too difficult to marry their demanding careers and equally demanding relationships.
"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," Menzel said earlier this year.
Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs have not filed for divorce yet... but with most Hollywood separations, that would be the next step.
