Maya Jama and Stormzy have been facing rumours that they’ve rekindled their relationship, but are they back together?
The new Love Island host and her rapper ex have been in attendance at the same events in recent weeks, where they’ve crossed paths, including a Kendrick Lamar concert at The O2, in which the pair were spotted sharing a hug as they said a brief hello.
It was also claimed they kissed in a private VIP area at the MTV EMAs earlier in November.
Reports have been swirling in recent days that the pair had rekindled their romance, but Maya’s team have since responded to these claims.
So, are Stormzy and Maya Jama actually back together?
Here’s what we know…
An insider told this tabloid that Maya and Stormzy ran into each other at the GQ Men of the Year 2022 awards, claiming that they left the event within minutes of each other.
They were said to have been in ‘deep conversation’ at the event, with a source saying: “Stormzy and Maya are together again. They’re taking it slow but are very much back in each other’s lives after a long time when they didn’t speak or see each other.”
A second insider at the party said: “They spent loads of time together at the afterparty and were chatting in a corner for ages.
“It seemed as though they went somewhere else together afterwards because she walked out and then he followed her out five minutes later.”
However, Maya’s later denied the claims, telling Mirror.co.uk that the former couple are ‘not romantically together’ despite the speculation.
After denying an official reconciliation, it was reported they were seen kissing at the MTV EMAs in Dusseldorf on 13 November, even apparently flying home to the UK together after they both missed their flights.
The insider who claimed to witness their kiss only spoke out after Maya's team denied they're back on.
Stormzy and Maya began dating in 2015 and were together until their split four years later, which the ‘Own It’ rapper recently described as ‘the biggest loss a man could have’.
The television presenter went on to date NBA player Ben Simmons and got engaged at the end of 2021, but are thought to have ended their romance in August.
Stormzy is making his music comeback and has already revealed that a number of songs on his upcoming album, ‘This Is What I Mean’, are inspired by his split from Maya.
