Adam Levine of Maroon 5 performs onstage during the Simon Wiesenthal Center National Tribute Dinner at The Beverly Hilton on April 27, 2022 in Beverly Hills, California.

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.

Adam Levine’s Alleged Mistress Speaks Out On TikTok

Instagram model Sumner Stroh has dropped a bombshell on Adam Levine, claiming to have had an affair with the married Maroon 5 frontman. She also claimed that Levine, 43, wanted to name his and wife Behati Prinsloo’s third child after her.

Levine and Prinsloo recently announced their pregnancy via a post on the Victoria’s Secret model’s Instagram. “Recent,” Prinsloo captioned the photo carousel with a fairy emoji, which saw her growing belly peeking out from under her tie-dye t-shirt. The couple, who wed in 2014, are already parents to daughters Dusty Rose, 5, and Gio Grace, 4.

In a minute-and-a-half video posted to TikTok today (September 19), Stroh, 23, said, “I’m just going to rip the bandaid off because I’ve re-taken this ten times now. Essentially, I was having an affair with a man who is married to a Victoria’s Secret model. At the time, I was young, I was naive and quite frankly I feel exploited. I wasn’t in the scene like I am now so I was definitely very easily manipulated.”

“Maroon 5 is practically elevator music at this point, so I’m sure you know who Adam Levine is,” she continued with a green screen effect showing DMs between the two of them. The alleged DMs from Adam read: “It is unreal how f—ing hot you are. Like it blows my mind,” to which she replied, “I mean I think the same. Seeing u in person I was like… I’m f—ed.” Adam then said: “You are 50 times hotter in person. And so am I… hahaha.”

“Adam and I were seeing each other for about a year,” Stroh continued. “After I stopped talking to him over a period of months, this is… how he came back into my life. He said, ‘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 Instagram model looked in shock as she joked, “I’m in hell. I have to be in hell at this point.” She continued to say that she would’ve handled this privately and would not have come forward because she “obviously I know the implications that comes with doing what I do, making the money the way I do and being an Instagram model. Being tied to a story like this — I know it’s stereotypes. I had sent some screenshots recklessly to a few friends I thought I trusted and one of them had attempted to sell to a tabloid. So here I am.”
