Taye Diggs Opens Up About Idina Menzel Split: 'It Was Easy for People to Root For Us'

Taye Diggs shows off his contagious smile at the SiriusXM Studios on Monday (June 9) in New York City.

The 43-year-old actor has been promoting his new TNT television show Murder in the First. Over the weekend, he hit up Extra at their New York studios at H&M in Times Square to do some promo work for the upcoming show.

“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],” Taye recently told Redbook about his split from his wife of 10 years Idina Menzel.

“Maybe they thought it was cute that we met in Rent,” Taye said of the fans who were devastated by the split. “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,” Taye 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.”
