It was announced this week that the incredibly talented power couple of Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs has split up after ten years of marriage. And you know what? We weren’t surprised.
It’s not just because marriages in the entertainment industry have a short life span. It’s not just because the two are so busy with their careers that they don’t have the time to spend on their relationship. It’s because of something Taye Diggs said on the Today Show recently while there to promote his film Baggage Claim.
In an interview with Kathie Lee and Hoda Kotb on the Today Show‘s third hour, Diggs spoke of his marriage and their 16 years together. Kathie Lee spoke of their union saying, “This is solid!” Diggs’ reply? “It’s solid today … you know how it goes.” Ouch.
Yeah, that didn’t sound like a very strong positive statement on the state of their marriage. When I saw that, I just knew that something was up.
“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.”
Hopefully these two will be able to co-parent in the midst of their separation in a way that will be the best for their son.
