When it comes to Hollywood celebrities’ net worth, we can expect it to exceed a million dollars. Taye Diggs’ earnings will not disappoint you, as he is estimated to be worth $16 million. The actor/singer is 48 years old and has been involved in the entertainment industry for a long time, making numerous contributions.

In terms of facts, Taye etched his acting professionalism into the hearts of the audience with the play Rent in 1996.

He made his film debut in the film How Stella Got Her Groove Back (1998). This appearance gained him a lot of attention from the audience. Later, in 2003, Diggs appeared as James in the final season of Will & Grace, and then in the TV series Private Practise (2007).

Aside from that, he wrote two books for children in 2015, titled “Mixed Me” and “Chocolate Me.”

Wife and son

Taye was in a relationship with Idina Menze, his wife. They first met in 1995 as co-stars in the Broadway musical Rent.

Taye and his ex-wife, Idina Menzel, later married on January 11, 2003. Taye later gave birth to a son named Walker Nathaniel Diggs on September 3, 2009, who is now nine years old.

Unfortunately, the couple’s relationship deteriorated and they split up in 2013. They later divorced legally in December of 2015. Despite their divorce, Taye and his ex-wife, Idina, remain friends and co-parent their child.

In terms of Taye’s dating life, his ex-wife had already moved on and married Aaron Lohr.

Taye, on the other hand, had found a new partner. Despite the fact that Taye’s son did not want him to have a girlfriend, he was spotted with a model girlfriend, Amanda Smith. For the first time, the couple smiled as they walked down the red carpet at the 2014 BET Awards.

However, the couple reportedly split in October 2018 after four years of marriage.

Taye was later discovered to be unattached to any woman. He is also not dating anyone until 2019, in order to respect his son’s decision (he does not want Taye to be involved in any relationship). In addition, he told PEOPLE that his child is his top priority in life.

Is He a Gay Man?

Taye Diggs was once surrounded by gay rumors while preparing for his role as Hedwig in the show Hedwig and the Angry Inch in 2015. The character had previously been played by real-life gay actors such as Neil Patrick Harris.

Taye, as it turned out, caused some consternation in the media with his twisted statement to TMZ. With the interviewer, he owned his enthralling homosexuality. He stated;

“I’ve always said to my friends that I have a flaming gay man inside of me,” Diggs said. “She’s coming out right now! It’s both enjoyable and challenging. I don’t know how you girls do it all day in heels every day.”

He also claimed that during his high school years, he was involved in male prostitution and was a closet queen.

Surprisingly, in 2016, the actor was accused by a professional snuggler, Lisa VanArsedale, of turning a G-rated session into an awkward peep show. Taye has yet to respond to the allegations, but the rumor has severely tarnished his gentleman persona.

Age- Brief Bio

Taye Diggs is an American actor who has appeared in plays, films, and television shows throughout his career.

He was born Scott Leo Diggs on January 2, 1971, in New Jersey, and was nicknamed Taye due to his own incorrect pronunciation of his name as “Scottay.” As a result, he was known as Taye for the rest of his career.

Marcia Berry, his mother, was an actress, and his father, Andre Young, was a visual artist. Taye has four younger siblings: two brothers and two sisters, with both brothers being musicians.

Unfortunately, he had a difficult childhood because his parents divorced when he was a child and his mother married Jeffries Diggs. As a result, the surname “Diggs” was born.

Taye earned a BFA in musical theatre from the University of Syracuse. His mother allegedly influenced him to pursue acting, and he made his stage debut in 1994 as a member of the musical “Carousel.”
