Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs are getting a divorce after 10 years of marriage. A publicist for the couple broke the news on Thursday in a statement that said, “the separation was jointly decided and that primary focus and concern is for their son.”
The couple met on the set of “Rent” off-Broadway and got married in 2003 after dating for seven years. They co-starred on Broadway in the show Wild Party in 2000 and on the TV show Private Practice.
Menzel, 42, got her big break on Broadway with a debut in Rent and won a Tony as Elphaba in Wicked. She appeared in films such as Enchanted, Rent, and Ask the Dust. Menzel launched her recording career and had a recurring role on TV in Glee. She’s currently starring in the Broadway bound musical “If/Then.”
Diggs,42, is best known for his role as Winston Shakespeare in the hit 1998 romantic film How Stella Got Her Groove Back, and recently starring in The Best Man Holiday.
