GQ Men Of The Year Awards 2021: Friendly exes Stormzy and Maya Jama share a laugh while spending time together in the smoking area


They dated for four years before parting ways in 2019. 

And, Stormzy and Maya Jama proved to be friendly exes as they shared a laugh in the smoking area at the 24th GQ Men Of The Year Awards 2021 in association with BOSS at the Tate Modern in London on Wednesday night.

The talented musician, 28, and the former Radio 1 DJ, 27, were seen spending time together as they chatted with another friend, who Maya was seen hugging.

The pair appeared to be in good spirits as they gathered around a small high-table, where they rested their drinks. 

Maya opted for a glamorous bedazzled black dress with a daring neckline which left plenty of skin on show. 

Stormzy opted for a more casual look, wearing a tight, long-sleeved T-shirt and dark trousers for the bash. 

It comes after Maya recently took her relationship with NBA basketball star Ben Simmons, 25, public.

They were first romantically linked in June, after they were seen together on a night out at restaurant Sexy Fish in London. 

The couple went public while kissing in the stands at Wimbledon in front of the world’s media, as they stopped by the annual tennis tournament. 

Ben previously dated Kendall Jenner, 25, but the pair called things off in May 2019 after months of dating on-and-off.

Maya, meanwhile, dated rapper Stormzy for four years, with the pair splitting the same year – ending their relationship in order to focus on their careers instead.
