Denise: The Downfall of Kermit and Miss Piggy

Mere weeks after Kermit and Miss Piggy announced their heartbreaking split, rumors have been flying around about a new fling Kermit the Frog may be having. The younger, thinner pig (which is outraging many, many people) works in marketing and is named, Denise. Yes, Denise. (C'mon, Miss Piggy is the OG Pig here, no one can compete with that name.)

We can only imagine how Miss Piggy feels. Now we know she's a strong, independent woman, and the two did announce their split together, but this new public information leads us to wonder if perhaps Kermy met his new rumored beau while he and Miss Piggy were still together. Was Denise the cause for their split? Are they really together? We hear stories like this all the time, with a biz dedicated to breakups, but this one pulled our heart strings in a pretty mega way.

Since we all love Miss Piggy, this of course leads us to instantly hate Denise (sorry girl) and sympathize with the flirtatious, spunky pig we've grown up with and love. We're sure Miss Piggy is fine, but we're not so sure that we all are. This reminds us of some past celebrity breakups and hookups comparable to Miss Piggy and Kermit's situation.

Jennifer Anniston -- Brad Pitt -- Angelina Jolie

We know, we know, this has been talked about more times than your grandma telling you about the cute boy at the grocery store who helps her get the heavy milk that she can't reach into her cart every week and how she gave him your number because how much older are you going to be single and she'd like her first great-grandchild while she's still around.

We'll still never be over it. But props to you Jen, for snagging Justin Theroux! That was worth the wait. You go girl.

Anyway, Miss Piggy is the Jennifer, Kermit is Brad and Denise is Angelina, obviously. We're gonna go out on a limb here and say that it seems Kermit met Denise while on the set of the new Muppets show. There must've been some obvious chemistry as the two have been seen getting cozy. While they're denying rumors now, we have an inkling it'll end up being true. Kermit does have a thing for pigs, after all.

Demi Moore -- Ashton Kutcher -- Mila Kunis

It is true that Demi and Ashton were split months before rumors of Mila and Ashton took flight, we see a slight similarity here in that Ashton went from one relationship to a new one with a much younger woman than before. We kinda love Ashton and Mila though, since they grew up together (who doesn't like That '70s Show?) so it's hard to compare this too much to Miss Piggy, Kermit and Denise's position.

Jessica Ussery -- Jason Aldean -- Brittany Kerr

Country singer Jason Aldean was found to have a mistress, American Idol alum Brittney Kerr, back in 2012 while still married to his wife Jessica with whom he has two kids with. This was a big scandal which Aldean received tons of backlash for. While Kermit and Miss Piggy seem to be much more amicable and Denise doesn't appear to be a mistress as Kerr was, we can't help but wonder, was Denise scheming for Kermit since she met him?

Similarly to Jason and Brittany, Kermit and Denise are in somewhat of the same industry, and Denise undoubtedly knew about Kermit (and perhaps had a crush on him growing up) before meeting him in person.

But we're not gonna start any rumors here.
