    Actor Taye Diggs and singer/actress wife Idina Menzel split late last year after 11 years of marriage. They did so in relatively quiet fashion.

    He recently spoke out about their split, as Menzel has been high flying with her track "Let It Go" from Frozen, saying. "I'd be lying if I said there weren't times when I thought, 'Oh, man, people are going to trip out if we split.' Maybe they thought it was cute that we met in Rent. There weren't a lot of couples like us in the theater community and I know there aren't a lot of performers as talented as she is...and then you have the whole mixed race thing. It was easy for people to root for us."

    It sure was. They were the cutest couple and they just so happened to be interracial.

    Diggs and Menzel are currently navigating the challenges of bicoastal co-parenting of their son, Walker, 4.

    Diggs recently relocated from New York to Los Angeles to film his new TV series Murder in the First, while Menzel remains in NYC.

    Were you shocked by this split?
