Following the news of Zayn Malik and Perrie Edward's split, it looks like Miss Piggy and her Muppet co-star Kermit the Frog are also breaking up. Can't believe it? We can't too. Miss Piggy who married Kermit in a Vivienne Westwood gown, announced the news yesterday on her Facebook page. Kermit, meanwhile, confirmed the news by reposting it on his Twitter account.

"After careful thought, thoughtful consideration and considerable squabbling, Kermit the Frog and moi have made the difficult decision to terminate our romantic relationship," she wrote. "We will continue to work together on television ("The Muppets"/Tuesdays 8pm this fall on ABC) and in all media now known or hereafter devised, in perpetuity, throughout the universe."

"However, 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," she added.

The Daily Mail reports that their split comes weeks before the debut of the new Muppets sitcom that will take on a mockumentary style similar to The Office. The show will feature Miss Piggy as the talk show host and Kermit as the show's behind-the-scenes executive producer.
