Mabel 'splits from American actor boyfriend Rome Flynn' for the SECOND time

Mabel has reportedly split from her American actor boyfriend Rome Flynn.

The pair are said to have started seeing each other last year, splitting initially six months in. But by April they were back together when travel became allowed and Mabel, 25, was able to go to the US for work.

Mabel – daughter of Neneh Cherry – was recording new music in LA, when she and Rome, 29, reconnected.

A source has told The Sun, however, that the God Is A Dancer songstress and the How To Get Away With Murder actor have split once again.

‘Mabel and Rome have a lot of chemistry but it’s no secret their relationship faced serious challenges. He lives in LA while she is based in the UK and they both travel a lot for work,’ the insider told the publication.

‘When you consider those factors, it is a pretty unlikely romance. But they like each other so much, so they agreed to try again earlier this year.

‘Things were much more in their favour while they were actually in the same country. But unfortunately it still didn’t work out and they are both single again.’

MailOnline has approached reps for comment. 

Rome stated on social media last week that he was single, and Mabel has not interacted with him online for over a month.

Mabel is set to feature on Love Island next week. The series jets a musician or DJ in for a villa party every year, with 2021 seeing the chanteuse make an appearance, following the recent Casa Amor dramas, which left several relationships in tatters. 

Will they, won't they? The pair are said to have started seeing each other last year, splitting initially six months in. But by April they were back together when travel became allowed and Mabel, 25, was able to go to the US for work

Actor Rome is also a musician too, and told MailOnline last year that artistic powerhouses Rihanna and Viola Davis have inspired a self-belief in his own creative career.

He explained that starring opposite Davis in How To Get Away With Murder helped shape him as an actor and that he suffered ‘separation anxiety’ when the series came to a close this year.

He also admitted that receiving a DM on social media from Rihanna encouraged him to take the plunge and launch a career as a singer/songwriter.

On working with Acadamy Award-winner Davis, Rome said: ‘I had to be on top of my s**t with Viola. But I learnt a lot from her – from her energy.

‘I’ve been lucky to work with great actors in their field, but for her it was just different, especially doing the one-on-one scenes where my attentions on her, her’s was on me.

‘You just feed off her and her you; it’s like a dance. It’s like you’re learning how to dance with someone skilled at dancing, but you’re trying not to step on her feet!’

Rome also added that Davis – who played lead role Annalise Keating in the hit series for six seasons – ‘could be acting opposite a wall’ and leave you exclaiming: ‘Damn that wall really killed that scene!’

Of music superstar Rihanna, Rome explained that ‘she messaged me to tell me she really liked my voice’, after she heard some of his demos online.

‘She said that it’s rare to find someone talented in acting and equally talented in music,’ he recalled of her flattering comments. ‘We had a quick conversation about other things. She told me to send her my EP, Cursed. I’ve still gotta do it!’

Rome felt that Rihanna affirmed his self-belief, having always wanted to pursue singing as well as acting.

‘I don’t know if you can find anything else that can match that affirmation [from Rihanna]. It was a good sign. I had a lot going on with acting and when she reached out to me it was a sign to keep on pushing,’ he explained.

Of acting vs singing, Rome admits that they are both forms of ‘art’ and simply ‘storytelling in a different format’.

‘I get different endorphins from acting and music, I enjoy them both in different ways, they are both special to me,’ he explained. ‘There’s a different vulnerability with music. You’re hearing from me, specifically on the topic I am writing and singing about. I’m not covered in a blanket of a character on a show where I can make mistakes and not feel so seen. With music I definitely feel seen.’
