Celebrity breakups have been happening fast and furiously. In recent news, there was Bennifer; Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale; Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton. But perhaps most upsetting is today's revelation that everyone's favorite Muppet couple, Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog, are over.

In a statement they both shared over Twitter, the pair announced, "After careful thought, thoughtful consideration and considerable squabbling, we have made the difficult decision to terminate our romantic relationship."

The pair did say they will continue to work together professionally on TV -- The Muppets will hit the small screen once again on Tuesdays 8/7C on ABC -- "howevever, our personal lives are now distinct and separate and we will be seeing other people, pigs, frogs, et al," the statement read. "This is our only comment on this private matter ... unless we get the right offer. Thank you for your understanding."

The breakup should make for good fodder when the show runs this fall. Surely, this isn't a publicity stunt, is it?
