Idina Menzel & Taye Diggs Breakup Is One Seriously Sad Story

Idina MenzelSay it isn't so! The beautiful Idina Menzel and her equally lovely husband of 10 years Taye Diggs have called it quits after weathering so many storms and having a son together. There are very few Hollywood breakups that really hit me, but this is one of them.


The two met in the mid-1990s when they both starred in Rent and have been together ever since -- practically a lifetime when it comes to celeb marriages. But this one hits hard. Menzel has never been secretive about how hard marriage is, though. She said:


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.

Somehow, it all went wrong.

Now Menzel and Diggs join the ranks of other couples that broke our hearts. Here are a few (set to the tune of "The Way We Were")

  • Rhea Perlman and Danny DeVito: This one was a SHOCK. Although it looks like they may have reconciled. Because, duh. These two belong together.
  • Bruce Willis and Demi Moore: These two were big, big stars, but they seemed to have it all. Not so, I guess.
  • Heidi Klum and Seal: We thought they had it all! WHAT happened? We may never know. But honestly, this one was a shocker. And so, so sad.
  • Amy Poehler and Will Arnett: Heartbreaker. That's all. Can't say more. Too choked up.

As for Idina and Taye, I am sure they will move on with aplomb. These are two incredibly sexy, smart, and talented people. But still. I will always miss them together. Sigh.
