Though Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs have been separated for a year, the two actors have just finalized their divorce.
December 2013 Split
Menzel and Diggs met during the original Broadway production of “Rent” in 1996. But after ten years of marriage, the couple decided to legally separate in December of 2013. A year later, it looks like the couple has quietly finalized their divorce. Diggs filed a divorce petition in November 2014. The two announced that their primary concern during the divorce was their 5-year-old son, Walker Nathaniel Diggs.
In June 2014, Diggs spoke about the separation in an interview with Redbook, saying that he was not surprised by how the public took their announcement of separation. “There weren’t a lot of couples like us in the theater community,” he said. “It was easy for people to root for us.” Around the same time as the release of the Redbook interview, Diggs made a public appearance with new girlfriend, model Amanza Smith Brown at the BET Awards.
Open to Dating
Menzel also spoke about the split and what it’s like to be single. During her Redbook interview in November, she said that while she’s open to dating, she doesn’t have much time to do so. “They’d have to meet me at, like, midnight after the show, and that’s kind of slutty, isn’t it?”
If you are facing legal separation or divorce you’ll want to work with a divorce attorney that can help walk you through the process. An attorney can ensure you get a fair settlement, as well as be able to help you with spousal support, child support, and any division of marital assets.
