Digg this! Six months after announcing his split from wife Idina Menzel, Taye Diggs has moved on with model Amanza Smith Brown. The two made their red carpet debut on Sunday, June 29, at the 2014 BET Awards in L.A.
The Murder in the First actor, 43, cut a handsome figure in a dark gray suit outside Nokia Theatre L.A. Live, where he happily posed for photos with his rumored new girlfriend. Brown—the ex-wife of former NFL player Ralph Brown, with whom she has two kids—turned heads in a white cutout halter dress with metallic accents and a sexy, thigh-high slit.
Diggs was first spotted out with the stunning brunette in April, four months after he announced the end of his 10-year marriage to "Let It Go" singer Menzel. Speaking about their separation in a recent interview with Wendy Williams, the Best Man Holiday star admitted he was just "hanging in there."
"I mean, it's not awesome," he told Williams. "It's definitely not awesome." Asked if he's "a mess" about their split, he replied, "Sometimes. Sometimes, but, like, it's okay." He played coy about his current love life, telling Williams only that he was "hanging out with people."
The actor also spoke with Redbook about his ex, with whom he shares son Walker, 4. "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," he explained. "The toughest [part]…well, lately, it's just leaving for work when I know I have to be away from him for more than a few days."
