Maya Jama and Stormzy ‘SPLIT’: Couple go their separate ways after four years to ‘focus on their careers’
Maya Jama and Stormzy have reportedly split.
The notoriously private couple dated for four years but are said to have ended their relationship in order to focus on their careers.
Maya, 25, is also reported to have ‘grown tired’ of her rapper beau’s, 26, ‘party lifestyle’.
‘The decision isn’t one she has come to lightly, but ultimately the relationship has come to an end.
‘She wants to focus on her TV and radio career for now.’
MailOnline has contacted Stormzy and Maya’s representatives for comment.
The pair, who have always been notoriously private about their dating life, are said to have split earlier in the month, but have yet to comment on the news.
The couple were last seen together on Wednesday, where they celebrated Maya’s birthday with a dinner at Sexy Fish, but were pictured separately.
The pair first went public with their romance in 2016 after initially keeping their relationship private, and have made no secret of their commitment to each other.
Stormzy previously said he wants to marry Maya, telling the Sunday Mirror in February 2018: ‘I’m still so young but I want to propose, it’s going to happen and I will do it right. She is so sick, she is the best.’
Last year, Maya hit out at being referred to as ‘Stormzy’s girlfriend’ calling the term ‘ignorant’.
Speaking on Loose Women about wanting to break out of his shadow, she explained: ‘I think sometimes but I’m not ignorant to the fact that a lot people only know me because of him and only know my name as Stormzy’s girlfriend but at the same time, I do have a name.
‘It happened to me once at the National Television Awards some girl came over to me and said ‘Stormzy’s girlfriend’ and I said ‘My name is Maya’.
‘It then went really silent and awkward… I can’t get angry but I do think it is a little ignorant.’
Maya recently told her Instagram followers that she has been struggling with her mental health.
Taking to her Instagram Stories she wrote: ‘Finally accepting that I’ve been struggling with my mental health for a while now, for ages I shrugged off feelings and would try to make excuses for why I felt low because I couldn’t explain what I was feeling or why.
‘I feel like this is the first step of me moving forward though. Accepting myself even when I’m not the bubbly positive girl and taking any of these days as they come.’
She added: ‘I’ve been wanting to cancel plans n shut off but I’m not going to today because something I have learnt is that as bad as it feels now it doesn’t last.
‘I’m always going on about how healthy transparency is online but always delete these kind of messages before posting because of the vulnerability that comes with it. But f**k it were all human.’
