Idina Menzel says it “sucks” to be dating again.
The Broadway star separated from her husband Taye Diggs last December after ten-years of marriage, and the actress isn’t excited to be back in the dating pool.
“It all sucks,” Idina exclaimed on the radio show Valentine in the Morning
The singer-and-actress, who voiced Elsa in Disney’s Frozen, has a four-year-old son named Walker with her estranged husband. It’s the little boy who she is particularly worried about when it comes to her finding love again.
“I don’t want to keep introducing him to people and having him form bonds and then take them away, you know?” she explained. “It’s bad enough his mom and dad are getting divorced.”
Idina is no stranger to divorce. Her parents split when she was a teenager.
"I keep telling myself, because I feel so badly for him, it's better that he's four-and-a half than when he's 15,” she said. “He has two parents that love him very much, and we want to be great moms and dads. At 15 I was too aware, I thought I was an adult, and I got in the middle of everything and I took on the stress for both of them."
Idina and Taye are still trying to “figure out a lot of stuff” since they reside on different coasts, Taye told Redbook earlier this month.
Since the split Taye has started to date Amanza Smith. “They are fully dating. They’re telling friends they’re in love,” a source previously told People Magazine.
Idina and Taye met in 1995 when they both joined the original cast of Rent. They married eight years later. Taye now works in California and is shooting Murder in the First while Idina is performing in If/Then on Broadway in New York.
