Taye Diggs opens up about Idina Menzel
When Taye Diggs and "Frozen" chanteuse Idina Menzel announced they were calling it quits in late 2013, their fans effectively lost it online, mourning the end of the 10-year relationship as if they'd been part of it. Since then, Diggs has been relatively quiet about his personal life, opting to speak through a rep about the former couple's determination to make the needs of their young son, Walker, the top priority in their lives.
The "Private Practice" star, who plays a cop on the new TNT series, "Murder in the First," recently opened up to Redbook about the experience of going through a high-profile divorce.
"I'd be lying if I said there weren't times when I thought, 'Oh, man, people are going to trip out [if we split],'" he admits. "Maybe they thought it was cute that we met in 'Rent.' There weren't a lot of couples like us in the theater community -- and I know there aren't a lot of performers as talented as she is ... and then you have the whole mixed [race] thing. It was easy for people to root for us. 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."
Walker, meanwhile, remains the light of Diggs' life. "The best [things about parenting] is seeing the expression on his face when I pick him up from school," he says. "The way he says 'Daddy' is unrivaled by anything."
