(Newser) – Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel are separating after more than a decade of marriage, Menzel's rep confirms to Us. The 42-year-olds first met in 1995 while both were starring in the original Broadway production of Rent, and later co-starred in the film version of the musical. They married in January 2003 and have a 4-year-old son together. No word on the cause for the split, but Us notes they were plagued by cheating rumors over the summer, and People points out that in April, Menzel said that they sometimes had a long-distance marriage, which can be hard but "we work at it."
