Reps for the couple told People.com, "Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs have jointly decided to separate at this time. Their primary focus and concern is for their son. We ask that you respect their privacy during this time."
Diggs and Menzel, both 42, met when they co-starred in the ‘90s original Broadway production of the musical “Rent,” and married in 2003. They have one son, Walker, 4.
The Tony winner for “Wicked” talked to People earlier this year about her marriage. "We work at it. 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."
Menzel is best known as a Broadway performer but has also appeared on “Glee.” She voices the role of Elsa in the recent hit Disney film “Frozen.” Diggs is currently starring in “The Best Man Holiday.”
