Who is Maya Jama dating? Latest boyfriend rumours and exes
IN a recent interview with The Sun, Maya Jama's father told us more about his daughter's childhood.
And it's clear that the relationship between the two is not a happy one. But what about the other men in the presenter's life?
Who is Maya Jama dating?
As she keeps her love life away from the lime light, Maya's dating record is the object of much speculation.
Since May, 2021, she is rumoured to be in a relationship with basketball star Ben Simmons, after being linked to Burberry boss with whom she shares a strictly platonic relationship.
Speculation kicked off when Maya was pictured in a kitchen rumoured to be Ben's.
To top it all off, Maya was said to be wearing shorts belonging to the Australian basketball star (who also happens to be Kendall Jenner's ex-boyfriend).

On Saturday, 12 June, they seemed to confirm the rumours when Ben shared a screenshot of an intimate FaceTime call he shared with Maya on his Instagram story.
"Things are hotting up for Maya and Ben", said a source to The Mirror, back in May.
"They are really into each other and the fact she flew to Philadelphia to be with him says a lot. They had a fun two weeks together. It’s nice to see her so happy."
For now, however, hey seem to be keeping a low profile.
Who are her ex-boyfriends?
Maya has been linked to other men during her time in the spotlight.
Before Ben, she was even in a relationship with a famous British rapper.
Her most famous relationship is the four years she spent alongside Stormzy.
The two began dating back in 2016, after being linked a year earlier.
Although their relationship seemed to be going smoothly, with fans dubbing them "couple goals" on social media, the pair abruptly broke up in 2019.
Rumours said that the rapper had been unfaithful to Maya and his 2019 song Lessons, inspired by the separation, only added fuel to the fire.
However, Stormzy cleared things up by saying : "I didn’t cheat. What I did was a big disrespect, what I did was very inconsiderate."
“It didn’t need to be cheating for it still to be a disrespect. But I thought now is a good time to say I didn’t cheat on my ex."
Despite their breakup, however, they seemed to be in good terms when they spent Christmas 2020 together.
Some fans believed Maya had a tryst with Drake. Others are convinced that she turned him down.
The rumour mill went into a spinning frenzy in 2020 when he name dropped her in his feature with Headie, Only You.
"Chubbs might jam this yute for a chain / And give it to a sweet one, called that Maya Jama", he rapped.
It was only after that it was revealed that Drake had sent a number of private messages while Maya was still in a relationship with Stormzy.
But since Kim and Kanye's split, Drake has apparently set his sights to the newly single reality star.
Maya's first love was heartbreakingly killed when she was 16 years old, in 2011.
Two men from rival gangs, aged 31 and 27,were since found guilty of his murder.
Shakah Anderson and Rickel Adams were given life sentences at Bristol Crown Court and were also found guilty of possession of a firearm.
Maya has since spoken of the trauma induced by her first boyfriend's murder.
Speaking to Cosmopolitan in July, 2020, she said:"with my boyfriend passing, it gave me a fearless approach to things. I felt like life was really short."
"Out of everything that happened in my life, that was a reality check on a massive scale."
"At 16 you think the world is a fairytale and it took me out of that. It made me even more determined."
