Since she split from Stormzy back in August 2019, Maya has kept her love life lowkey.

Maya got engaged to NBA player Ben Simmons in 2021 after less than a year of dating, but in summer 2022 it was reported they'd split due to their hectic work schedules and realising 'as much as they love each other, their nonstop careers and endless travel made it incredibly impossible to make it work.'

Rumours surfaced that she was romantically linked to Drake back in July 2020, after he name-dropped the star in his song, ‘Only You Freestyle’, but Maya didn’t address the speculation.
