    Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel Split Up

    Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel's lease on love is up.
    The actors, who met as members of the original Broadway cast of Rent in 1995, have split up after nearly 11 years of marriage, E! News has confirmed.
    "Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs have jointly decided to separate at this time," reps for the couple said in a statement. "Their primary focus and concern is for their son. We ask that you respect their privacy during this time."
    Their son, Walker Nathaniel Diggs, is 4. Diggs and Menzel tied the knot Jan. 11, 2003.

    Menzel and Diggs, both 42, also costarred in the 2005 film adaptation of Rent, reprising their respective Broadway roles as saucy bisexual performance artist Maureen and yuppie landlord Benny.
    Some of her more recent gigs, playing Lea Michele's mom on Glee and voicing Queen Elsa in the animated Frozen, have kept her closer to home, but Menzel talked in April about the difficulties of being based in Los Angeles while also often having to be in New York for work.
    "It's hard trying to make the decision to keep [Walker] in L.A. so he can go to school with his friends," the Tony winner for Wicked told People. "He would be with a babysitter or have to travel to me to New York where I am rehearsing all day—but at least he's with Mommy. It's those kind of decisions that torture me all the time."
    As for having a sometimes-long-distance marriage...
    "We work at it," Menzel admitted. "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."
    Meanwhile, Menzel was not at the recent premiere of Diggs' latest movie, The Best Man Holiday.

    Aw sad though not surprising. Hasn't he been cheating on her for years?

    I love her and her voice. She is so great in Frozen.

    I didn't know they were together in the first place, so I am double-shocked!

    This is sad. I didn't know about the blinds that he was such a manwhore homewrecker.

    Taye Diggs, Rumored New Girlfriend Amanza Smith Brown Make Red Carpet Debut at 2014 BET Awards: Picture

    Taye Diggs made his red carpet debut with new girlfriend Amanza Smith Brown at the 2014 BET Awards on June 29

    Digg this! Six months after announcing his split from wife Idina Menzel, Taye Diggs has moved on with model Amanza Smith Brown. The two made their red carpet debut on Sunday, June 29, at the 2014 BET Awards in L.A.

    The Murder in the First actor, 43, cut a handsome figure in a dark gray suit outside Nokia Theatre L.A. Live, where he happily posed for photos with his rumored new girlfriend. Brown—the ex-wife of former NFL player Ralph Brown, with whom she has two kids—turned heads in a white cutout halter dress with metallic accents and a sexy, thigh-high slit.

    Diggs was first spotted out with the stunning brunette in April, four months after he announced the end of his 10-year marriage to "Let It Go" singer Menzel. Speaking about their separation in a recent interview with Wendy Williams, the Best Man Holiday star admitted he was just "hanging in there."

    "I mean, it's not awesome," he told Williams. "It's definitely not awesome." Asked if he's "a mess" about their split, he replied, "Sometimes. Sometimes, but, like, it's okay." He played coy about his current love life, telling Williams only that he was "hanging out with people."

    The actor also spoke with Redbook about his ex, with whom he shares son Walker, 4. "Right now, we're still trying to figure out a lot of stuff because we're on different coasts and our son is getting older," he explained. "The toughest [part]...well, lately, it's just leaving for work when I know I have to be away from him for more than a few days."
