NEW YORK, N.Y. – Married stage and film actors Idina Menzel (ih-DEE’-nah mehn-ZEHL’) and Taye Diggs are splitting up.
A publicist for the couple announced the breakup Thursday in a statement that said the separation was “jointly decided” and that “primary focus and concern is for their son.”
The pair met while appearing in “Rent” off-Broadway and 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.”
Their son, Walker, was born in 2009.
