Miss Piggy and Kemit the Frog have done a Zayn and Perrie!
If you’re looking for a story to ease those midweek blues then we suggest you duck and run for cover…
In a day of break-ups, another couple have decided enough is enough and called it a day- Miss Piggy and Kemit have split up! The pair have decided to follow the break-up trend (we have Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards to thank for this one *sob*) and after ‘thoughtful consideration and considerable squabbling’ will no longer be the Beyonce and Jay-Z of The Muppets clan.
The news has broken just a month before a new series of The Muppets begins airing in America- a series dedicated to the behind-the-scenes Muppet happenings of Miss Piggy‘s new talk show ‘Up Late with Miss Piggy‘.
The terrible news was confirmed by the both of them at an ABC event for the show, Kermit explaining ‘People change. So do frogs and pigs, we were together for a long, long time and it’s personal’. The announcement was then followed by matching his-and-hers break up statements on both official Twitter accounts which reads-
After careful thought, thoughtful consideration and considerable squabbling, we have made the difficult decision to terminate our romantic relationship.
‘We will continue to work together on television and in all the media now known or hereafter devised, in perpetuity, throughout the universe. However, our personal lives are now distinct and seperate, and we will be seeing other people, pigs, frogs, et al’.
And it seems there is a new curly tail in Kemit‘s life- the little green fella also confirmed he is in a relationship with another pig called Denise who works in ABC Marketing. We don’t think Miss Piggy will be too bothered though, who was quoted to say ‘Dating moi is like flying close too the sun. It was inevitable that Kermit would drop down to the ground while I stayed in the heavens’. Girl we like your style!
Despite the bad-blood the pair are going to try and stay professional throughout the press launches for the new series- Kermit insisting ‘We’re going to get through it. We’re going to be fine. We can be professionals. One of us can. Me’. We like your spirit Kermy.
As heartbroken as we are, we wish Denise-the-pig and Kermit the best of luck with their new relationship. Hopefully Miss Piggy has a very successful single life, as she is adament that ‘there is only one gift you should accept on your first date – diamonds’.
