So, who was that mystery lady with Taye Diggs on Sunday night? It was his new girlfriend — well, at least his rumored new paramour. Us Weekly reports that Taye Diggs and Amanza Smith Brown made their red carpet debut as a couple at the BET Awards, which obviously resulted in tons of questions — like "are they really a couple?" and "is it serious?" It seems like they're definitely a couple — you don't usually take red carpet pics with people you casually met at the bar the night before. But still — who is Smith Brown?
Smith Brown is a model, and she's the ex-wife of former NFL player Ralph Brown, with whom she has two kids. She and Diggs certainly have parenthood in common, as he's dad to Walker, 4, with his ex-wife Idina Menzel.
So how does she describe herself? According to her bio on Twitter, she's a model, a mommy, and a superhero — and judging by the looks and lack of follows on her Twitter account, she's not much of tweeter. (Although we'll see if that changes as her relationship with Diggs progresses — he notoriously follows practically everyone... except me. What's up with that, Taye?!) However, let's not assume that she'll follow her boyfriends Twitter-heavy ways; she may not want to be like her boyfriend — she just may be a regular gal who likes to keep her personal life private.
Regardless of their different stances on social media, the two looked pretty happy on Sunday night. Take another look at the couple:
Guess he, uh, "let it go" — "it" being his ex-wife, Idina Menzel. (Don't worry, she "let it go," too — she seems like she's doing more than fine right now. Getting to sing the power anthem of the year probably helps.)
