Who is Stormzy dating? Does he have a girlfriend or is he married? Here's what we know.
Stormzy is one of the UK's most successful rappers in the game and has been dominating the charts for years, but it's not just his music that has stolen the spotlight.
Croydon native Stormzy, whose real name is Michael Omari, was involved in a high-profile relationship with television and radio presenter Maya Jama for four years until their split in August 2019.
The rapper, 29, has since been romantically linked to Swedish model Yasmine Aisha Khalifa Holmgren, and singers Alexandra Burke and Jorja Smith - but who is Stormzy dating right now?
Who is Stormzy dating?
In September 2022, Stormzy confirmed to Louis Theroux that he was single and explained why he "doesn't really" date.
"Anytime I’ve had a date, we’ve gotta go through a back door at the restaurant," he explained, "Because people are gonna blow the flipping poor girl’s life,"
Stormzy added, "I’m still trying to figure it out. I always say I’ll just wait for God innit. I’ll just wait for God to present me with my situation and my woman and my family."
"I’m all out of ideas. Even the idea of dating for me is a new thing. I didn’t date before I met my ex."
Are Stormzy and Maya Jama back together?
As of 2023, it appears Stormzy and Maya Jama aren't back together.
In late 2022, the former couple were linked again following her split from then-fiancé basketball star Ben Simmons. They were spotted at the same event amid reports claiming they were "very much" back in each other's lives.
However, Maya's representatives went on to squash the rumours, confirming that the reports were indeed false but that the pair remain "great friends."
Speaking to Charlamagne Tha God back in January 2020, Stormzy admitted he still wanted to marry Bristol beauty Maya and confessed he still loves her.
"I would love for that to happen, but I don’t know. I would love to be the man who she… I would love to do all the things that make it work. I want to marry her, I want to have her children. All of that."
"I love her more than anything, I’ve never loved anyone how I love her."
Who has Stormzy dated?
In July 2020, it was reported that Victoria's Secret model Yasmine Aisha Khalifa Holmgren was spotted walking Stormzy’s two dogs in London after an image circulated on social media.
The Swedish model was first linked to the rapper back in March after they allegedly met backstage at one of his gigs in Stockholm and "spent two days together at hotel suite".
"Stormzy is bowled over," said reports at the time, "As soon as he met Yasmine backstage, he knew he wanted to spend quality time with her."
"He has been desperate to keep it under wraps in the hope they can forge a lasting relationship. Yasmine caught his eye straight away, within minutes they were [inseparable]."
Yasmine is signed to Wilhelmina Models London, her Instagram handle is @yaaskhalifa and she counts Drake as one of her famous followers.
Stormzy is yet to comment on the reports. Since his split with longterm girlfriend Maya Jama, Stormzy was previously linked to British soul singer Jorja Smith.
After news of his breakup with Maya surfaced, rumours circulated on social media that he had been unfaithful to Jama with Smith.
However, he told New York radio station Hot 97 in January 2020 that this was untrue. "I didn’t cheat. I didn’t cheat!" He also confirmed he and Jorja were never involved on a romantic level, saying "No, no, no, we’re not a thing. That’s a rumour."
Two months later, in March 2020, the rumour mill began swirling again after X Factor star Alexandra Burke posted a cosy photo of herself and Stormzy backstage at one of his gigs on Instagram.
"Poland was powerful," she captioned the photo, which saw both Alexandra and Stormzy beaming as they cuddled on a sofa. Fans immediately commented on the pair, with one writing, "You would made a great couple". Another wrote, "Now that's a couple".
Despite the rumours, Alexandra Burke is currently in a relationship with footballer Angus McDonald after splitting from her fiancé Josh Ginnelly in 2019, so it's pretty clear the duo are just friends.
