Sadly we have to report the dissolution of another union.

They’ve been married for 1o years, but actors Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel have announced they are going their separate ways.

“Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs have jointly decided to separate at this time,” reps for the couple informed PEOPLE. “Their primary focus and concern is for their son. We ask that you respect their privacy during this time.”

The now former interracial couple, who are both 42, met as costars in the original production of the Broadway musical “Rent.” In 2003 they married and their son, Walker, was born in 2009.

Interestingly, PEOPLE interviewed Menzel about their marriage earlier this year. She said like most marriages it had its ups and downs.

“We work at it,” she said. “I’m not going to glamorize it or glorify it – we go through tough times like everybody 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.”

As we reported earlier, Diggs, who’s currently starring in the hit film “Best Man Holiday,” took to Twitter to defend himself from false negative comments about black women

Here’s what he DID NOT say:

“Let’s just say it’s not a stereotype that black women are less submissive and harder to deal with. Being around all them black women made me really miss my wife”

The false quote actually came from a parody called CreamBPM. Here’s his response:

“Regarding the preposterous quote about black women: It is false. I have not and would never say such a thing. Ever. Period.”

    Ooops I said it, after his “false” comment got leaked. That she would soon move on, with a Black man with bigger feet. Do You White Girl, Do You !

      • No, you shut up and stop throwing the word racist around. it is the truth in what Snoopdog is saying. I will be surprise if he gets a black woman.Sorry but blacks folks have alot of other blacks who overlook them for the color of their skin. It is his business; however, it is others business to say what they want especially if it is true. Look at TIger Woods in which the same thing was said. Was it a lie? NO.

        Tammy, it wasn’t thrown. If it was thrown it would be a chance that it would have hit the wrong people. You would have no trouble getting ANY man if you chose the kings English from time to time.
        Do you like your steak cooked a certain way? Do you prefer not to eat steak at all? What if someone insisted that you change those preferences because of your race? Would you? Should you? Yes, it is the same thing. Please don’t tell me that you are one of those people who believe that to belong to a certain race you have to do X,Y, and Z.
        Are you an atheist? There is no way that you can truly believe in God and think that he wants us separate and only marrying people of our race. If you are a Christian, you are of the belief that he established marriage and that he created all of us. Any problems that you hold with those two issues should be taken up with him. Until, you hear from him on it, “shut up”.
