RuPaul’s Drag Race icons Alaska Thunderfuck and Sharon Needles call it splits.

Instinct reports that drag power couple and RuPaul’s Drag Race superstars Sharon Needles and Alaska Thunderfuck are calling it quits after four years. The ladies sent out press releases announcing the split:

Alaska said:

“I will always love Sharon, and we will continue to be a part of each other’s lives,” Alaska says in a press release. “Authenticity and honesty to our fans is so important to us, and we will always be there for all of you, no matter what. I appreciate your love and support in this period of change.”

Sharon said:

“Due to the severe change not only in mine but Alaska’s life, the survival of our partnership relies on simply changing the word “boy” in boyfriend to “best”. And because of my severe vanity, I’d like to keep my social media as a place dedicated to my art, and not a place to talk about my personal life. RuPaul once said that people come into our lives for different reasons for different intervals of time. I will treasure the four years we had together.”

We said:

Noooooo! And shocking, considering yesterday Alaska dropped her new video “Ru Girl,” where she calls Sharon Needles her boo. Check it out below.
