A rep for the couple confirmed the split to People saying, “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.”
Am I allowed to cry now?
I was sure that these two would be together forever! Idina and Taye have been together since the mid-1990s when they starred in the original production of RENT. The two married in 2003, and Idina gave birth to their super cute son Walkerin 2009.
So, if Benny and Maureen–sorry–Taye and Idina can’t even make it work, what hope is there for the rest of us? Maybe this is just a fluke and they’ll be back together soon. But if it’s not, good luck to you both. Are you surprised by the split? Sound off in the comments!
