A rep for the couple tells People, “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 met during the original Broadway production of “Rent” in 1996, with Diggs as Benny and Menzel as Maureen. They were married in 2003 and their son Walker was born in 2009.
We always thought they were one of those Hollywood couples that would last forever. Here are four other couples that left us wondering if love was dead when they decided to go their separate ways.
Amy Poehler and Will Arnett split in 2012 after nine years of marriage and two children together. It left us feeling like we would never laugh again. They always seemed to enjoy one another so much.
Likewise, Heidi Klum and Seal, with their adorable twitpics of their brood and their annual Halloween party, seemed like one for the ages.
Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli also bummed us out. Their family of five, with three beautiful daughters, always looked like it came right from the pages of a J.Crew catalog.
And who can forget Kris and Bruce Jenner, who announced earlier this year they would be separating. We still have not recovered.
