Taye Diggs Caught in “Cheating Scandal”?

Truth rating: 1

By Michael Lewittes


Taye Diggs’ Cheating Scandal!” blares a headline from Star. According to the supermarket tabloid, Diggs is fooling around behind the back of Idina Menzel, his wife of 10 years.

The magazine says the actor was “spotted getting frisky with a sexy brunette while partying at Emerson nightclub in Hollywood on June 19.” Star quotes a so-called “clubgoer” as saying, “At 1 a.m., [Diggs] led her upstairs to the back of the club, and they began making out behind a pillar.” So, the tab’s source saw them “behind a pillar”? Oh, it gets more ridiculous.

The magazine goes on to quote “the same source” behind the first alleged June 19 indiscretion as also eyewitnessing Diggs again “acting like a bachelor” at a different Hollywood hotspot on June 30. Wow, what do you think the chances are of the same — and only — person seeing Diggs “cheating” in two different clubs on two different nights? Hint: Zero.

Gossip Cop checked in with club sources, who tell us they didn’t see anything. And Diggs’ rep dismissed the allegations as “not true.” Star is not exactly on a roll. So far on Wednesday, Gossip Cop has corrected inaccurate story after story after story by the tab about Sandra Bullock, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Kris Jenner.
