MuppetsThe summer of 2015 is when love died. Ben and Jen. Blake and Miranda. Gavin and Gwen. And now -- sob -- Kermit and Miss Piggy!

Kermit first broke the news to reporters about the breakup at the "Muppets" panel at TCA, then confirmed it via an official statement on Twitter.

"Piggy and I have gone our separate ways romantically. It can be tough to work with your ex," he said, referring to the new "Muppets" show which will debut this fall on ABC. Not only have Kermit and Piggy broken up, but the frog has already moved on — with another pig! He revealed he is dating a pig named Denise who works in marketing at ABC. "I do have an attraction to pigs," Kermit admitted.

As for Miss Piggy, who arrived late and in dramatic fashion to the panel, she shrugged off possible tensions on set. "I have no problem working with my ex, OK? It's fine," she said. "You know what? 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."
