With all the Hollywood couples breaking up recently, fans of “The Muppets” are heartbroken to hear that Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy called it quits after 40 years of romance. Kermit has also confirmed that he already moved on and is seeing someone new.
“After careful thought, thoughtful consideration and considerable squabbling, we have made the difficult decision to terminate our romantic relationship.”
Despite their break up, the two promised that they will still be working together on screen (“The Muppets” Tuesdays 8/7c this fall on ABC).
“However, our personal lives are now distinct and separate, and we will be seeing other people, pig, frogs, et al. This is our only comment on this private matter… unless we get the right offer. Thank you for understanding,” their announcement continued.
Notably, according to his Facebook account, it was Miss Piggy who initiated the break up:
“After careful thought, thoughtful consideration and considerable squabbling, Miss Piggy made the difficult decision to terminate our romantic relationship,” Kermit revealed.
Miss Piggy also made a comment about their split.
“Dating moi is like flying close to the sun. It was inevitable that Kermit would drop down to the ground while I stayed in the heavens,” she bragged.
Soon after the announcement was made, actress Emmy Rossum tweeted the newly single frog obviously hinting at a possible romance. However, Kermit revealed that he is already seeing someone new.
.@emmyrossum Hi-ho, Emmy! Unfortunately, I’m seeing someone else… Denise. She’s in publicity at the network. She’s sweet, you’d like her!

According to TV Line, Denise is another pig, who “works in marketing” for ABC.
“She is a pig. I do have an attraction to pigs,” according to the source.
Could there be any possible reconciliation? Let’s cross our fingers.
