Maya Jama opens up about life after breaking up with rapper Stormzy

Heartbreak is never easy.

Maya Jama and rapper Stormzy were together for four years before they called it quits this summer.


Of course, being in the limelight is never easy when you're going through personal problems. Maya has opened up about what it has been like going from being unknown to being a celebrity - and how difficult it is.

Speaking to the Evening Standard, the presenter said: "I used to read magazines when I was little and see all these Hollywood people break up and they didn't feel like real people."

"And then when you're in that position, you're like, 'Oh s***, it's very real.'"

The Sun reported last month that Jama initiated the split because she wants to focus on her career.

"Maya has moved out of their home in South West London," a source told the publication.

"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."


However, now that she is living on her own, she's enjoying being by herself.

"I've got this little flat that reminds me of a Sex And The City apartment. But without the sex.

"I feel like the world's my oyster," she said.
