Taye Diggs and wife separate

Actor Taye Diggs and his wife, Idina Menzel, have separated after 10 years of marriage.

People confirmed that the couple have decided to separate. The couple's rep says in a statement, "Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs have jointly decided to separate at this time. Their primary focus is for their son. We ask that you respect their privacy at this time."

Diggs and Menzel met on the set of the Broadway production, Rent in the mid 1990s. The couple married in 2003 and have a son, who they named Walker, in 2009.

Menzel has said about their marriage earlier this year to People, "we work at it. I'm not going to glamorize it or glorify it, we go through tough times like every one 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."

The two were having a long distance relationship because they both have to work in different cities. The couple also starred in the movie version of Rent, playing the same roles as they did in the Broadway play.

E! Online reports that Menzel did not attend the The Best Man's Holiday movie premiere with her husband.
