Did Kermit's Flirtation with Tina Fey Cause Miss Piggy Split? A Semi-Serious Investigation

After 40 years as a couple, Kermit and Miss Piggy called it quits Thursday, vowing the breakup won't affect their work – but could the frog's wandering eye have been the final straw?

Last March, Kermit, 60, got flirtatious with Muppets Most Wanted costar Tina Fey – who wed composer, director and producer Jeff Richmond in 2001 – during a press conference in Los Angeles. Piggy, 41, arrived conspicuously late to the event.

"I'm actually stretching myself quite a lot as a dramatic actor in this thing. I did many, many scenes with Tina. One particular scene stands out to me. It was a closed set. It was the scene where she licks me," Kermit told reporters. "But I just want to clear it up right here with the press that Tina is happily married. Jeff was there during the shooting. Closed set."
