Taye Diggs & Idina Menzel Were Secretly Divorced

Nearly a year after their separation, these two have finally pulled the plug!

Though Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel thought that they filed divorce papers in secret, the media caught wind of the divorce via lthe divorce petition that Taye filed in NYC.

Diggs and Menzel announced their split in December of last year, and did all the essential (and uncomfortable) custody stuff (the two have a five year old son named Walker) and asset dividing during the lag.

According to TMZ’s source, the break-up has been as amicable as possible, as both remain committed to raising their son together, with as little drama as possible.

10 years of marriage…what a bummer.

Taye Diggs Has Officially Moved on From ‘Elsa’

The 2014 BET AWARDS in LA

Actor Taye Diggs seems to have officially moved on from his ex- Idina Menzel, who voiced the insanely popular character ‘Elsa’ in the Disney movie, Frozen.  She also sings ‘Let it Go’ which is a huge breakout song from the soundtrack.  Me and a lot of pre schoolers have the entire thing memorized.  Diggs made it pretty clear that he’s dating model, Amanza Smith Brown, when they hit the red carpet together last night, at the annual BET Awards in LA.

The two seemed very comfortable posing together on the red carpet.  Brown was previously married to Ralph Brown, a former NFL player, and they share two children together.  Diggs and Menzel share a 4-year old son.  Diggs spoke of how his split with Menzel was affecting his relationship with his son in a recent interview with Redbook.  

“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,” Diggs told Redbook. Asked about the most challenging part of parenting Walker, he added, “The toughest…well, lately, it’s just leaving for work when I know I have to be away from him for more than a few days.”

Always hard when couples with kids split.  But they all seem to be doing well enough.

Taye Diggs is Moving On…

Private Practice star, Taye Diggs, only separated from his wife of ten years, singer/actress Idina Menzel, in December – but it appears he is ready to move on.  He was spotted hitting the nightclubs in Hollywood on Wednesday night with a new brunette on his arm.  The two were pictured holding hands and whispering in each others’ ears.  Taye and Menzel met on Broadway in 1996 while both were were performing in Rent.  They were married in 2003 and have a four-year old son, Walter.  Menzel, who has experienced a new-found surge of fame due to the success of Frozen and the hit song, ‘Let it Go’ has addressed the split:

Idina joked on CBS Sunday Morning this week: ‘If I didn’t have a job… I’d be home eating a tray of brownies and, you know, watching sad romantic comedies and Bridget Jones-ing it out.’

And the 42-year-old added of Taye: ‘We met when we were 25 in Rent. So, we’ve been through a lot of ups and downs, and we’ve worked really hard for a long time.

‘I just think we’ve grown apart, grown up, grown to a place where we think maybe we can learn new things about ourselves, going on our own separate ways.’

I saw Menzel on Broadway when she was in ‘Wicked,’ and she was amazing.  Her voice is insane.  My daughter is clearly a fan, and wanders around the house at all hours singing her own rendition of ‘Let it Go.’ I liked them as a couple, but they mutually seem to have grown apart.  I heard an interview on the radio with her right before the split was announced, and she mentioned all of their different travel obligations for work.  It seemed like they were just leading separate lives.

PHOTOS: Taye Diggs dating again already!?

Celebrities Enjoy A Night Out At 1 Oak Nightclub

Looks like Taye Diggs didn’t waste any time after announcing his separation from wife Idina Menzel!

The 43-year-old actor was photographed leaving 1 OAK nightclub in West Hollywood last night with another woman.

The two walked out of the club together, but with some space between them. Scandalous!

Taye and Idina broke up in December after 10 years of marriage, and several years of dating. They had their first child in 2009.
“Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs have jointly decided to separate at this time,” reps for the couple told People. “Their primary focus and concern is for their son. We ask that you respect their privacy during this time.”

Before they split, Menzel opened up about their marriage. “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.”
