Taye Diggs & Idina Menzel are over? He ‘brags about his single status to strippers’


Back in July of this year, Star Magazine had a disturbing story about Taye Diggs. Apparently, some woman saw Taye grinding up on several women while he was out in LA. The observer woman took Star Mag’s polygraph and everything, and she seemed to be telling the truth. Taye is married to Idina Menzel. They’ve been married for nearly 11 years, and I think they were together for like four or five years before they even got married. They have one son together, Walker. Now Star Mag claims that Taye is acting like a single guy again, and he’s made up his mind that he and Idina and over. Damn.

After Star exclusively reported that Taye Diggs was caught cheating on his wife, Idina Menzel, with a sexy brunette in July, Taye has made no attempts to fix his marriage and is instead vying for his freedom – because the two are separating!

According to pals close to Diggs, not only is he adamant that a divorce is in the works, but he’s also bragging about his newly single status to strippers at X-rated gentlemen’s clubs around LA.

“Taye isn’t even waiting for the separation to be official,” says the source. “He’s ready to party and let loose.”

Idina and Taye, who would be celebrating their 11-year wedding anniversary in January, are the parents of 4-year-old son Walker.

“Taye will continue to coparent their son… but as far as he’s concerned, the marriage is over.”

Several commenters always tell me that the urban blogs are full of gossip about Taye’s wandering dong and/or his open marriage. I don’t know why Idina stayed with him for this long, quite honestly, because although the man is FINE, he sounds like a total dog. That might be the wrong word? What am I trying to say? If he’s “bragging to strippers” about being single, then he’s just pathetic. Strippers don’t care if you’re single or married, dude. Dumbass.

    How sad. She’s a beautiful woman and they made an attractive couple. Add a child to the mix and really, can’t he just behave like an adult and at least wait for the ink to dry on the divorce decree? His child will grow up and be able to read this information one day…and the mother of his child is always going to be the mother of his child, whether or not they are married. He could dig deep and find it in himself to treat her with a little respect on that basis alone, if he had any decency.

  2. John says:

    Oh, I really hope this is not true– about the split AND his canine tendencies. I like them.

  3. Tiffany27 says:

    I had always heard about his wandering eye so I’m not surprised. She’s too pretty to put up with that mess.

  4. Lucy2 says:

    Star Mag is not very credible, but if this is true, that’s sad, especially since they have a young kid.

  5. GiGi says:

    Aw, I hope they’re happily married- have you ever seen their vine videos? They *seem* very together… but who knows, really.

  7. T.fanty says:

    Meh. Those rumours have been circulating for years. Good for her, if she’s rid herself of a wandering dong.

  8. brin says:

    Yeah, I’ve read rumors of him cheating and it’s sad, they seem like such a happy couple.

  9. j.eyre says:

    Dammit Taye!

    Ignorance was truly bliss on my part. Crush over.

    • LadySlippers says:


      You and me both, Miss Eyre, you and me both.

      (Wandering eyes and even dongs can be excused if the couple are in a discreetly open marriage but if this is true — it’s very tacky and classless)

  10. Lark says:

    Ugh. Star Magazine is right up there with the fanfiction with Radar and Life and Style. I do think Taye probably has an open marriage (based on a few comments he and Indina have made in interviews and the amount of time they spend apart), and that Star got “inspiration” from that rumor to create these stripper/club rumors. Because frankly if Taye was was supposedly publicly being such a dog at the clubs, there would be a photo or two of him looking just a little “too” close to another woman imo.

  11. Jessiebes says:

    Ohh he is so beautiful, on the outside at least. An almost perfect male specimen.

    Any man who hangs out with strippers is PATHETIC. Especially when he’s not single. We’re talking about women who won’t even speak to you unless you give them money. Is all about the money for them. There was a Reddit post a while ago about strippers talking about their job, pretty much every single one of them hates the clients and mocks them backstage. They revealed so much stuff about the business, how they think all the guys are sad and lonely, how they think they are all gross and perverted, how they do anything for cash (including making them think that they are attracted to them) and how the guys generally go home broke and unsatisfied… all the dudebros on Reddit were like… Fantasy ruined. They will not go to a strip club anymore.

    It’s just absolutely a stupid way to spend your money, the girls there hate you with every fiber of their being, there is not a single client they respect because they are paying to see them naked and in the end you’re just disrespecting your woman. Absolutely the worst idea ever. Poor Idina. That to me is enough to dump someone. It’s just gross and sad.

    I heard her interviewed on EW Radio this week and she spoke like they were still very married.

  14. blue marie says:

    well damn, that stinks

  15. M.A.F. says:

    Don’t know about him but I will always love her.

  16. Abby says:


    Need to go back and read the article. I just had to comment on the title. ::tear::

  17. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Right. Be sure those strippers know you’re single, because, really they are looking for a committed relationship with you. For as long as your money holds out, anyway.

  18. Ag says:

    What an a$$.

  19. GlimmerBunny says:

    Sad news. They are a very hot and talented couple 🙁

  20. Jessie says:

    Zzzzz. This rumor has existed since the moment they got married. He goes out and has a good time when they’re apart. So what? Who’s to say she doesn’t do the same (but she is not as famous thus it wouldn’t get reported on in gossip rags). I highly doubt Idina – a very intelligent woman – is oblivious to rumors and reports. Hell half the time when he is photographed with a “mystery woman,” that woman is one of their friends!! This story is tired. Let it go.

    • PinkParasols says:

      Thanks for clearing that up Taye and Associates!

      Anyway, I totally believe he cheats. I totally believe she doesn’t care/mind….which might mean it’s not *really* cheating. Lots of couples are like this.

      He’s an arrogant, whiny little man. If she’s happy, I’m happy for her.

      • Jessie says:

        lol “taye and associates” – i’m actually an idina fan. but yes – if they’re happy with whatever their situation is , who cares?

  21. Han says:

    Although he is hot Idina is way more talented than him and has a lot more respect in the business.

  22. Miss Scarlet says:

    I believe this. I was at the 2007 Tony Awards after party, and found myself bellying up to the bar at the same time as Taye Diggs. Idina was there too, but had her back turned, talking to someone. He gave me a fairly blatant up and down gaze and then locked his eyes on me. It was that kind of look that makes a woman feel dirty when she hasn’t even done anything. I got my drink and got out of there.

  23. Daz London says:

    Who are they ?????????????????

  24. Claire says:

    l will forever love Idina for the orginal Wicked soundtrack. She is amazing

    I like bacon, but I am a vegan, so I started to eat more spinich and just imagined that it was bacon. Hope they love more veggies.
