The Muppets’ Kermit and Miss Piggy announce split

(EVO) – Shocking and sad news out of Hollywood as yet another power couple bites the dust.

Fans clearly love Miss Piggy but apparently Kermit doesn’t. At least not romantically. Because after 40 years together – the Muppet duo says it’s the end of the road – for their romantic relationship.

They announced their sad separation on social media and said it was decided after “careful thought, thoughtful consideration and considerable squabbling.”

Like many powerful Hollywood couples – they’re promising to continue to work together on television and other projects. But personally they say they will be seeing other people, pigs and frogs.

The timing conveniently sets up a new dynamic for the upcoming “The Muppets” television show. A revival airing on ABC in September.
