Drag's superstar couple with ties to Pittsburgh have broken up. After four years together, Sharon Needles and boyfriend of four years, Alaska, announced their new relationship status Wednesday.

"I will always love Sharon, and we will continue to be part of each others' lives," said Alaska, aka Justin Honard.

"Due to the severe changes not only in mine but Alaska's life, the survival of our partnership relies on simply changing the word 'boy' in boyfriend to 'best,' " said Needles, whose given name is Aaron Coady.

Needles was the season four winner of Logo's "RuPaul's Drag Race." Alaska was a season five runner-up. They are scheduled to appear together on RuPaul's "Battle of the Seasons" tour, which kicks off a 10-city trek Jan. 10 in Vancouver.
