Taye Diggs is an American television, theater and movie actor best known for his acting in Pulitzer award-winning rock musical drama, “rent” and medical drama television series, “Private Practice” and the motion picture romantic drama film “How Stella Got Her Groove Back.”

However, his name Taye comes from the perky pronunciation of his birth name Scotty as "Scottay". See, if Scotty is pronounced playfully as “Scotty” , then you get the fun pronunciation as “Taye.”

The actor has done well for himself financially. He has been in the industry for more than 15 years now. He is a rich guy with a net worth of $22 million.

“Private Practice” star actor, Diggs is probably not gay.  But, it seems he is rather open about his feelings. In an Andy Cohen’s show “Watch what happens live” in 2013, he revealed he has taste in men. After one caller dialed and asked him whether he’s ever “dipped in the man pond,” Taye surprised everyone with his answer. He said:

“If I were to go that route, I would say Tyson Beckford is handsome and robust…Boris Kodjoe has a good look. If it’s white cats, white dudes if it blonde, maybe…Brad Pitt’s pretty. Now dark-haired white dudes…uh Ryan Gosling? Is he dark-haired? No, he’s Sandy, but he’s pretty cool.”

Well, his gay fans must have been happy with this answer and since his ten years of marriage with his actress wife Idina Menzel ended in late 2013, lots of gay people want to approach handsome Taye.

Let’s go away back in past. When he was young, his mother had told him:

 “I always knew you were gonna marry a white girl!”

Amazingly, what his mother felt was soon turning to reality after January 11, 2003.

It was the date when they married after dating for some years.  

The musical drama “rent” gave him two important aspects of his life. One is the immense success and recognition, and the other is his future wife, Idina Menzel, who was his co-star in rent.

Many people criticized their interracial love back then, but there were also a good number of individuals who supported their love. According to Taye, his mother and Idina’s family are some of these good people who supported their love and marriage.

Their love brought up their baby-son Walker Nathaniel Diggs into the world on September 2, 2009. Their divorce came as a complete surprise to the media in late 2013. They were thought to be a happily married couple, but it is well-known that everything people assume about celebrities can’t be the reality.

However, both Taye and Idina have admitted that they are still close to each other and have mutually agreed to raise the kid together. Soon after their divorce, speculations were being made about the cause of their divorce.

According to people, probable causes are like Taye’s betraying Idina for his girlfriend, Ted having other kids orIdina having other kids, Ted's a gay, busy schedule of both Ted and Idina and much more. Anyway, none of the speculation is verifiable. Therefore, the ex-couple only know what happened.

Moreover, Idina has admitted that she has gone through a hard time looking for the kid and her career.

Taye seems to be already recovered from the divorce. He was seen with a mystery woman leaving a club just in 2014. Check out the exclusive news going to the following site:


For both Idina and Taye’s, Broadway was the first platform to show their talent. “Wicked” was the fundamental way to fame for Idina whereas for Taye, his bridge to success was “rent”.

Very dashing, Taye, with the height of 5 feet and 8.25 inches, doesn’t mind going shirtless if the role demands.  In fact, he has gone shirtless on many occasions.  One can check out his hot pictures and work career on the internet.
