Adam Levine has finally addressed the allegations that he cheated on his pregnant wife Behati Prinsloo with an Instagram model named Sumner Stroh. Stroh, who took to TikTok yesterday, claimed that the Maroon 5 frontman had manipulated her into their alleged year-long affair. On top of the cheating, the most shocking part of the video was that Levine wanted to name his upcoming third child after Sumner. He allegedly wrote to the Instagram model: “Ok serious question. I’m having another baby and if it’s [a] boy I really wanna name it Sumner. You ok with that? DEAD serious.”
The internet blew up over Sumner’s claims with Adam trending on Twitter. Some were buying into her story, as she did have legitimate-looking screenshots, while others suspect Sumner of chasing clout because of how she makes her money.
Now, Levine told gossip website TMZ that her allegations are false and he has never had a physical relationship with Sumner. Levine, 43, said, “I used poor judgment in speaking with anyone other than my wife in ANY kind of flirtatious manner. I did not have an affair, nevertheless, I crossed the line during a regrettable period of my life.”
He continued, “In certain instances it became inappropriate. I have addressed that and taken proactive steps to remedy this with my family. My wife and my family is all I care about in this world. To be this naive and stupid enough to risk the only thing that truly matters to me was the greatest mistake I could ever make. I will never make it again. I take full responsibility. We will get through it and we will get through it together.”
Levine and Prinsloo, 34, wed in 2014 and are already parents to daughters Dusty Rose, 5, and Gio Grace, 4. The couple has been together since 2012, but they did split briefly in May 2013. A couple of months later, they announced their engagement.
