An Instagram model accused Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine of cheating on his wife Behati Prinsloo and leaked DMs allegedly sent by the singer to her. Sumner Stroh, a 23-year-old model, made the allegations in a TikTok video on Monday, September 19, in which she claimed she was in a year-long relationship with Levine.
Adam Levine is speaking out after model Sumner Stroh revealed on social media that she had a year-long affair with the married Maroon 5 singer.
A lot is being said about me now, and I’d like to clear the air. I used poor judgment in flirtatious conversations with anyone other than my wife. “I did not have an affair, but I crossed the line during a regrettable period of my life,” Levine said in a statement posted on his Instagram Story on Sept. 20. “In some cases, it became inappropriate; I addressed this and have taken proactive steps to remedy this with my family.”
The announcement makes its way just a week after Adam Levine and his wife, Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo, revealed they are expecting their third child. The couple already has two daughters and has been married since 2014.
In a TikTok video on Monday, Sumner Stroh claimed that she dated the singer for a year but did not specify when and shared a screenshot of an Instagram DM that the singer allegedly sent her after she “stopped talking to him over months.”
The model also allegedly shared screenshots of messages from Levine, some of which read. “It’s truly unbelievable how hot you are. “It blows my mind.” According to Stroh, the singer sent her another message after they stopped seeing each other, saying, “OK serious question. I’m expecting another child, and I’d like to name him Sumner if it’s a boy. Are you okay with it? “I’m dead serious,” followed by a single shrugging emoji.

“I was having an affair with the husband of Victoria’s Secret model. I was young and naive at the time, and to be honest, I feel exploited, “In the video, Sumner stated.

Their first baby girl, Dusty Rose, was born on September 21, 2016, and their second child, Gio Grace, was born on February 15, 2018.
