Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs Finalize Their Divorce (1)

Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs have finalized their divorce.

The voice of Queen Elsa in Disney’s ‘Frozen’ is officially single again after finalizing her divorce from her longtime husband, actor Taye Diggs.

TMZ reports that Diggs filed for divorce in November in New York, and it was quickly finalized on December 3. The couple announced their split in December 2013, but papers were only filed late last year.

After announcing their split, Diggs told Redbook: “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 theatre 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. Right now, we’re still trying to figure out a lot of stuff because we’re on different coasts and our son is getting older.”

The couple met on the original Broadway production “Rent” in 1995 and tied the knot in 2003. They have a 5-year-old son, Walker Nathaniel.

Details of their divorce settlement including their child custody are not disclosed, but the split is claimed to be amicable. Diggs stepped out with his new girlfriend Amanza Smith Brown on the red carpet of BET Awards over the summer.
