Miss Piggy and Kermit The Frog Announce Split

Love is dead.

In easily the worst news that has ever been reported, Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog announced on Tuesday they are splitting up.

"After careful thought, thoughtful consideration and considerable squabbling, Kermit the Frog and moi have made the difficult decision to terminate our romantic relationship," Miss Piggy said on her official Facebook page. "We will continue to work together on television (“The Muppets”/Tuesdays 8pm this fall on ABC) and in all media now known or hereafter devised, in perpetuity, throughout the universe."

"However, our personal lives are now distinct and separate," she continued, "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." 

However, in his own statement announcing the separation, Kermit made it clear the decision was not, in fact, mutual: 

"After careful thought, thoughtful consideration and considerable squabbling, Miss Piggy made the difficult decision to terminate our romantic relationship," Kermit wrote. [Emphasis added.] 

Who do you blame for the breakup? Will Taylor Swift write a song from Miss Piggy's perspective? The split kind of seems like a cynical plug for the new Muppets show premiering this September ... 

 While you wait for answers, here are some GIFs to remind you of the couple's best moments:
