Singer, Adam Levine has spoken out after a Tik Tok video by influencer Sumner Stroh went viral exposing an alleged ‘year-long’ affair. Explaining how she felt “exploited”.
The Maroon 5 star began dating Victoria's Secret model Behati Prinsloo in 2012 and married two years later.
The couple currently shares two daughters and have recently confirmed they are expecting a third.
Levine has spoken out against these allegations commenting: “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 in a regrettable period of my life”.
Sumner shared screenshots of Instagram messages appearing to have been sent from the singer but had stated they stopped speaking for a period of months before Levine allegedly messaged her asking: ‘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 model was initially going to keep the affair private but exposed it herself when a friend threatened to sell the story to the tabloids.
Sumner said that she believed the marriage between the two was over and that this was hidden to avoid negative press. When she realised this information was untrue she ‘cut things off with him.'
Since the allegation was released multiple women have stepped forward also exposing the 43-year-old singer including his former yoga teacher Alanna Zabel who accused him of sending her a sext and boasting to his friends about her a**.
The scandal gained attention from celebrities such as model Emily Ratajkowski and Selling Sunset star Chrishell Strause who commented on the sexist takes on the cheating allegations.
Strause tweeted: ‘When apologizing for cheating publicly I hate the -we will get through it together part from a man. Don’t speak for her. You’ve done enough.’
Ratajkowski took a feminist view on the situation using her TikTok platform saying: "I think a huge problem in our culture right now is that we just say, 'oh men are just monsters, they're terrible, they're horrible'. We don't hold them accountable, and then we blame other women, we ask women to adjust their behaviour, instead of just saying men need to change their behaviour, it's sexism, it's classic misogyny."
