It may not be easy being green, but the end of Kermit and Miss Piggy's love story is making Us blue. Hearts broke on Tuesday, Aug. 4, when news broke that the two Muppets were parting ways after decades together.
Kermit announced the split in a Television Critics Association panel in Beverly Hills, Calif., telling the crowd of reporters, "Piggy and I have gone our separate ways, romantically." The puppet exes are working together on the upcoming ABC show The Muppets, and went on to release a joint statement to Us Weekly about their split.
"After careful thought, thoughtful consideration and considerable squabbling, we have made the difficult decision to terminate our romantic relationship," they said. "We will continue to work together on television 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."
Kermit and Miss Piggy's inability to make it work inspired mourning from fans and celebs alike. Many expressed shock over the split, while others looked to the Muppets' romantic future. Check out stars' best reactions to the breakup below!

I'm actually really sad that Miss Piggy and Kermit have split up. Hoping it's just a publicity gimmick for the new Muppets show.
