Married stage and film actors Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs are splitting up.
A publicist for the couple announced the breakup Thursday in a statement that said the separation was jointly decided and that primary focus and concern is for their son.
The pair met while appearing in Rent off-Broadway and married in 2003 after dating for seven years. They co-starred on Broadway in the show Wild Party in 2000 and on the TV show Private Practice.
Their son, Walker, was born in 2009.
Menzel, 42, made her Broadway debut in Rent and won a Tony as Elphaba in Wicked. She also has launched a solo recording career and had a recurring role on TV in Glee. She is currently starring in the Broadway-bound musical If/Then.
