Star: Taye Diggs was grinding up on some club girl, cheating on his wife Idina

Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel have been together more than a decade. They have a kid together (3-year-old son Walker) and for the longest time, I thought they were a down-to-earth, low-key couple and I truly believed that they had a traditional, monogamous marriage. Then a few years ago, I wrote that in a post and everyone yelled at me and informed me that there are tons of rumors that they maybe have an open marriage or that he just fools around a lot (either/or). And since that day, my innocence has been lost! Now I can’t look at Taye and Idina without thinking about how he’s allegedly fooling around all the time. Ugh. Anyway, I bring that up because – surprise! – Star Mag spoke to a woman (and they gave her a polygraph too!) who claims she witnessed Taye all up on some Not Idina Lady at a club. Apparently, Taye and this lady were pretty much dry-humping behind a pillar. Damn it, Taye.

Taye Diggs may be cheating on his wife of 10 years, Idina Menzel! Taye was spotted getting frisky with a sexy brunette while partying at Emerson nightclub in Hollywood on June 19.

“Taye was hanging all over the woman at a private table,” dishes a fellow clubgoer, who passed a polygraph test at Star’s request. “At 1 am, he led her upstairs to the back of the club, and they began making out behind a pillar. They were basically dry humping.”

Most recently, the same source say Taye, 42, flirting up a storm at a Sunday night Summer Sessions event at The Colony Night Club in Hollywood.

“He was acting like a bachelor,” spills the mole.

Taye’s racy behavior will undoubtedly come as a shock to his family. This past December, he appeared on Access Hollywood and gushed over the love he has for Idina and their 3-year-old son Walker. “We’ve got a kid… it make me more attracted to her every day.”

But despite the pair’s public persona, this isn’t the actor’s first brush with infidelity. Another source confirmed Taye’s scandalous ways after she witnessed him flirting with women in May 2011 at Voyeur club: “He was on a mission to get a bunch of hot girls.”

Taye’s publicist, Marla Farrell from WKT Public Relations, tells Star that the story is “not true”.

Did you notice that it’s the same “source” (the one taking the polygraph!) who claims she witnessed Taye fooling around TWICE. On two separate nights? Is this chick Taye Diggs’ stalker? Or is she employed by Idina? God knows. Anyway, I guess I might believe this. I’m still disappointed though. He a dog. It ain’t right.

    Pretty sure theirs is an open marriage. Taye is all over the place (according to black blogs and radio) and has been for as long as I remember. Even if its not a formal arrangement, shes been ignoring the very loud and consistent chatter for years. Money is a powerful thing I guess.

    • Original A says:

      Weren’t there rumors that she was bi and also liked too hook up with ladies? Sounds like a mutual agreement, to be honest, if it’s even true.

    • Faye says:

      I’m no fan of Idina Mendel personally, but I think it’s unfair to ascribe her staying with him for money. She’s had a pretty successful career. Maybe she reallly loves him and thinks he’ll change. Granted, I couldn’t put up with it, but everyone is different when it comes to cheating.

      • Leah says:

        I agree with you Faye. Idina has had a pretty succesful broadway career and some would venture she is the more talented of the pair.

      • V4Real says:

        I’m with you two on the money thing. They have been together for over ten years after meeting on the set of Rent. Also Adina has her own projects coming out. If he is cheating on her it’s sad. If it is an open marriage they have the right to live their lives the way they want even if we don’t like their decissions about how they choose to live it.

    • T.C. says:

      Indina has her own money plus her own successful career. She don’t need his money. She could still be with him cause she loves him or because of her son.

    • j says:

      i dont think they have an open marriage. he is super jealous. ever seen him on ellen when they show clips of her with other guys on screen? he is SUPER jealous.
      ironic since he is suck a cheating dick himself

  2. Elle says:

    If they do have an open marriage I guess it’s okay. But I think some women say they have an open marriage but really they just let their husbands cheat and don’t see other men themselves. Sad.

    • Bubbles says:

      Why would you even get married if you want an open marriage? What is the point?

      • Faye says:

        Yeah, I’ve always wondered that myself. Shouldn’t marriage mean commitment?

      • Elle says:

        I would never have an open marriage and I think it’s stupid aswell but some people are different and think differently. I’m just saying that if they are going to have an open marriage it should be on both sides and not just her turning a blind eye to his cheating.

      • tracking says:

        I get what Elle is saying. Commitment doesn’t necessarily equal fidelity, so long as both parties are on board.

      • VanillaFrosting says:

        My brother and his wife are in an open relationship. She is the only one who has slept with someone else though, his standards are ridiculously high. They both make out with other people at clubs though. They say it enhances their attraction for one another. My brother said he loves her and they have to be married but he won’t stop loving the chase and she likes to feel sought after. I dunno, doesn’t make sense to me and I honestly think like every other couple I know who has tried the arrangement they will fall out of love with it and just be faithful to one another.

  3. marie says:

    booo, no.. I really like Taye. so I hope it’s not true.

  4. Just Me says:

    I hope it’s an open marriage & he’s not just being a dick. I love these two together.

  5. ldub says:

    rachel berry needs to have a sit down with mom

  6. tracking says:

    She is so much more talented and interesting than he.

    • Cool Phosphorescent Shimmer says:

      This is true. I LOVE her. He used to be great-looking, but now, he just looks like the smarmy little douche that I fear he is.

    • Leah says:

      Totally agree, He is not much of an actor he basically rides on his looks. Idina is a genuine talent.

  7. DoMaJoReMc says:

    Ah, I was hoping that he was better than that 🙁

  8. Lola says:

    Dry humping. What is this source 13?

  9. If a man is lucky enogh to marry Idina Freaking Menzel cheating should be the last thing on his mind. She’s SO beautiful!

  10. Mercy says:

    Why her..i dont get.Why marry..i dont get.LOL@ this story.

  11. Itwillrain says:

    Cheating is not usually motivated by the lack of attractiveness of the spouse. It’s usually more related to the cheater’s own character flaws.

  12. Renee says:

    Open marriages are what men claim to have behind their wives’ backs.

  13. Jayna says:

    She I’m sure owns a smartphone. Where’s a photo easily taken?

  14. j.eyre says:

    *sticks fingers in ears* la, la, la – I can’t hear you.

    No, not my Taye. Darn it, darn it, darn it.

    • LL2 says:

      LOL, glad I’m not the only one who feels that way. I need evidence: pictures, receipts, etc., or else it didn’t happen. I’m not a Taye Diggs fan per se, but I always thought they made a nice couple.

  15. Lizzie says:

    well now i just want to watch rent…

  16. MrsBPitt says:

    nooooooo…I really love them as a couple…and I agree with the above posters…her career is as good, if not better than his…so she is not staying for money…I guess nobody knows what really goes on inside a marriage…we only see what people let us see…

  17. mslewis says:

    This man has been cheating for years. I’m confused about this article and why they needed the woman to take a lie detector test. It has never been a secret that he cheats and, no, they do not have an “open marriage.”

  18. lucy2 says:

    I do find it odd the same source is commenting on 2 different instances.

    If they are truly “open” and both on the same page, fine, whatever works for them is their business. But if it’s just cheating, that’s gross.

  19. Jenna says:

    Um, just so it’s said… the polygraph means crap. That’s why it isn’t actually allowed to be used/included in court cases, it’s too easy to mess with.

    Got an uncle who wanted to make that point a bit clearer to some colleagues so he and my dad (who was in the FBI at the time) got several of my cousins and myself together and gave us a 30 minute ‘class’ on how to screw with the machine, even when used by a long term ‘pro’ tester.

    We all made it thru with flying colors, including MY then ~6~ year old self! (hey, icecream was on the line. I paid attention!) So if all they have is a paid source and a lie-detector, it sounds like someone is just trying to throw crap into their lives. Which I hope is the case because cheaters and being cheated ON just… sucks.

    • UsedToBeLulu says:

      You may fool a polygraph once. But if the person giving it to you knows what they are doing, you will not fool it a second time. Two polygraphs is considered very accurate.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        I can fool a polygraph pretty much at will and multiple times with the same tester. It’s one of the first things I learned when I was doing forensic psychiatry (before I went into private practice)

      • UsedToBeLulu says:

        Two different testers? That is supposed to be the gold standard – if you can fool it with two different testers.

        Anyhoo. Impressive skill set! *g*

  20. I Choose Me says:

    Oh man, this guy. I had such a huge crush on him back in the day. This was around the time that movie The Best Man was out. For some reason How Stella Got Your Groove Back didn’t put him on my radar but that movie did. Then I started hearing rumors about him being a cheater and a bit of a douche and that turned me right off.

  21. Meanchick says:

    Never liked TD, his wife was always the more talented of the pair and I always beleived that he proposed to her to solidify coins in HIS pockets. He gave an interview once that summed it up for me. in it he says, ‘My mom told me she always knew I’d marry a white girl.” Huh? What a dick.

  22. bohemia says:

    Such a disappointment

  23. Ag says:

    That’s disappointing.

  24. Joanie says:

    I believe this. I was at the Tony Awards a few years back, standing at the bar during the afterparty, when I felt someone staring at me; I turned around to see Taye Diggs boring holes into me with his eyes. He did the whole head to toe, full body assessment eye fk. I was pretty taken aback, since I always loved him and Idina as a couple too. I saw him with her later that night. I get a squicky feeling whenever I look at him since that night.

  25. PhillyGurl says:

    “I’m shocked!”, said no one.

  26. mimi says:

    If you have a 3 years old at home, why on earth are you our going to clubs as if you are 21 years old and without a family?

    She is raising the child, and a very young kid, and he is out partying, looking for fun?

    Oh, and of the two of them, he is the less attractive one, so how dare him, not appreciate what he got at home?

  27. xxx says:

    Well, if they have an open marriage that they’re both happy with… fine. But if he is just cheating that is awful. And either way, this is going to f*ck up their kid if he ever becomes aware of it.
