Kermit The Frog And Miss Piggy Announce Split
After more than three decades together, Miss Piggy confirms the Hollywood power couple broke up amid “considerable squabbling”.
Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy, the once inseparable Muppets couple whose love seemed eternal in a jaded world of celebrity break-ups, have announced they have split.
After more than three decades together, the pair dropped the bombshell during a Television Critics Association (TCA) event in Los Angeles while plugging their forthcoming ABC mockumentary series.
Kermit said: “Piggy and I have gone our separate ways, romantically.”
Miss Piggy wrote on Facebook: “After careful thought, thoughtful consideration and considerable squabbling, we have made the difficult decision to terminate our romantic relationship.
“We will continue to work together on television.”
She added: “Our personal lives are now distinct and separate, and we will be seeing other people, pigs, frogs, et al.
“This is our only comment on this private matter…unless we get the right offer. Thank you for your understanding.”
Miss Piggy first announced the pair were engaged to be married in 1979, but they apparently never officially tied the knot.
Kermit is now said to be already dating another pig named Denise, who works in marketing.
Miss Piggy put a brave face on the break-up on Tuesday.
The porcine diva told the audience at the TCAs: “Dating moi is like flying close to the sun.
“It was inevitable that Kermit would drop down to the ground while I stayed in the heavens.”
