Hollywood’s most prominent power couple announced that they’re breaking up, suspiciously close to same-sex marriage becoming legal.

Celebrity break-ups often make the headlines, but with the recent referendum on same-sex marriage – could this couple have just reached their limit.

With Sarah and Nick Jensen also being in recent news by threatening to divorce their Christian marriage if same-sex marriage was introduced in Australia, many are questioning if ‘the Pig and the Frog’, as they’re known by their friends, have taken it a step further.

Fans took to twitter to voice they’re opinions on the controversy:Fullscreen capture 05082015 133129.bmp  Fullscreen capture 05082015 133145.bmpFullscreen capture 05082015 133136.bmp Fullscreen capture 05082015 133149.bmp

Official sources have released statement on behalf of Miss Piggy and Kermit about their conscious uncoupling.

On her Facebook, Miss Piggy stated: “After careful thought, thoughtful consideration and considerable squabbling, Kermit the Frog and moi have made the difficult decision to terminate our romantic relationship.

“We will continue to work together on television and in all media now known or hereafter devised, in perpetuity, throughout the universe.” she continued, “However, our personal lives are now distinct and separate, and we will be seeing other people, pigs, frogs, et al.”

Kermit’s sources have stated that Piggy’s statement is in fact false and the truth is: “After careful thought, thoughtful consideration and considerable squabbling, Miss Piggy made the difficult decision to terminate our romantic relationship.”

However it is clear, these ex-love birds – well love pig and love frog? – did not break up due to gay marriage…obviously.

In fact, the Muppets have actually openly supported same-sex marriage.The reason this pair split might actually be due to rumours concerning Miss Piggy and a certain Marvel villain.


But reports have said that Kermit has moved on and is ready for his new life as a bachelor. I’m sure he won’t miss those chops – Miss Piggy was always known for her lethal karate skills.
