Taye Diggs has been taking Hollywood and Broadway by storm since the ‘90s. He’s starred in many musicals, movies, and TV series over the course of his career. Plus, he has a beautiful voice, amazing acting chops, and undeniable good looks to inspire many celebrity crushes. For ten years, Diggs was married to another superstar, Wicked and Frozen powerhouse, Idina Menzel. Now he’s giving every sign of being all loved up with another beautiful actress, Apryl Jones. Find out what’s going on in Taye Diggs’ love life and who else he has dated in the past.
Diggs’s TikTok Romance
These days, Diggs is getting cozy with a TV beauty. He sparked dating rumors in 2021 when he attended a party with Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star, Apryl Jones. In February 2022, Jones all but confirmed the rumors when she posted a video to Instagram that ended with Diggs kissing her on the cheek. A June post of the pair full-on lip locked really seemed to let the cat out of the bag:
Since then, the two haven’t been shy about posting TikToks together, although Diggs hasn’t officially confirmed that they are in a relationship. He did, however, open up about how he met Jones after sliding into her DMs. “I literally saw one of her Instagrams or TikToks, and I just texted, or whatever it’s called, and said that she was hilarious,” Diggs explained. Jones replied, and the rest is history.
While they have yet to say they’re an item, this pair seems like a good match. Jones already knows all about co-parenting and raising kids in the spotlight. She co-parents her children with her famous ex, Omarion. We hope this adorable couple continues to get closer together. We’re certainly enjoying seeing their relationship develop on TikTok and Instagram!
Taye Diggs Split From Ex-Wife Idina Menzel In 2013
In their day, Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel were Broadway’s ‘It’ couple. The pair met in 1995 when they played Benny and Maureen in the original Broadway production of the hit musical, Rent. The couple tied the knot in 2003. Two years later, they reprised their roles in the 2005 Rent film adaptation. In 2009, they welcomed their baby boy, Walker Nathaniel Diggs, to the family.
In December 2013, they announced their separation. They kept most details of their split private. Even so, they were clear about one thing that they agreed on: their son always comes first. Diggs told People, “He’s what’s most important for us, so we’re still there as a family.” The couple’s divorce was finalized in December 2014.
The How Stella Got Her Groove Back star and his Disney princess ex-wife definitely found their groove as co-parents. According to Menzel, “It’s all about [our son, Walker.] He comes first and you have to get past your own egos and you never talk bad about each other.” Diggs is definitely on the same page. He told Us, “I’m the last person to give advice, but I think you can’t go wrong when you just put the kid first.”
Diggs Dated Amanza Smith After Splitting From Menzel
According to the Selling Sunset star, Amanza Smith was the first person to date Diggs after his split from Menzel. In 2020, Smith told the podcast, Not Skinny But Not Fat, “He’d only been divorced like five months…I was the first person he’d been with after her.” She recalled, “If you’re the first relationship someone has fresh out of a divorce, it’s probably never going to work. We’re better friends.”
Plenty of people try to stay friends with their exes, but it seems that the Private Practice star and his real estate agent ex really have. According to Smith, ”His son is the same age as my daughter… We still have playdates, and I’ll drop my kids off at Idina’s house and they’ll have playdates and sleepovers there with Walker.”
Diggs sure does have this ‘amicable breakup’ thing wired. He really seems to know how to end a relationship gracefully. It’s anyone’s guess where things will go from here (and the Broadway star definitely plays his cards pretty close to his chest), but we’re certainly rooting for him and Jones to go the distance.
