Maya Jama and Stormzy ‘remain great friends’ after being pictured at event together

Maya Jama and Stormzy 'remain great friends' but are not back together, a rep has clarified.

The former couple were seen together at the GQ Men of the Year 2022 awards on Wednesday (November 16), sparking rumours they were an item once again.

Rapper Stormzy and presenter Jama were in a relationship for four years before breaking up in 2019.

After being spotted back together, The Sun reported that a source had confirmed they had rekindled their romance; however, a rep for Jama has since quashed this rumour.

The 28-year-old's rep told The Evening Standard: "The reports about the romance being rekindled are untrue."

They added that the pair 'remain great friends'.

There was speculation that the grime artist had cheated on Jama after he released 'Lessons', the 15th track on his album Heavy is the Head.

In the reflective song, the 29-year-old admitted that he 'done the dirt' and said 'you cannot imagine how I'm sorry'.

If there was any doubt about who he was referring to, he even name-checked his former flame in the second verse.

However, in an interview with HOT 97 in 2020, he insisted that he didn't cheat.

When asked about the allegations, he said: "D'you know what? It's good that you asked me this. I didn't cheat. I didn't cheat!

"It's so mad because even with the song - I made a song called 'Lessons' addressing the situation. And since the situation happened, there was a lot of, like, 'You're a cheat!'

"With the song, I kind of just stepped out and [took] full accountability. [What I actually did was] a big disrespect. It was very inconsiderate.

"It didn't need for it to be cheating for it to be a disrespect. But I thought now was a good time to say that I didn't cheat on my ex."

He also addressed their separation more recently in an interview with Louis Theroux, admitting he had made 'mistakes' during their relationship, describing break-ups as the 'biggest catalyst for growth' as well as 'the biggest loss a man can have'.

As for how he dates nowadays, he told the much-loved documentary maker: "I don't really do it.

"Anytime I've had a date, we've gotta go through a back door at the restaurant.

"Because people are gonna blow the flipping poor girl's life.

"People in the restaurant want to try and film, and I always say that’s not fair on the person I'm with because they don't want to f***ing be in f***ing tabloid magazines."
