Idina Menzel Hits Splitsville

Just when “Frozen” had you warm and fuzzy and believing in love, Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs have separated after a decade of marriage.

“Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs have jointly decided to separate at this time,” reps for the couple told People magazine. “Their primary focus and concern is for their son. We ask that you respect their privacy during this time.”

The two, who have one son together, met during the original production of Broadway musical Rent in the mid-1990s.

Former “Wicked” star Menzel had confessed that things were on the rocks in an interview with People earlier this year:

“We work at it,” she said. “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.”

Catch Diggs in the holiday rom-com “Best Man Holiday” and Menzel in the melt-your-fuzzy-socks-off amazing “Frozen.”
