Adam Levine ‘abandons his thrifty ways’, gives Behati a ‘limitless wedding budget’

Did you know that Adam Levine is tight-fisted when it comes to money? I had never heard that before now, but I can totally see that. According to Star, Adam’s friends know that he’s quite cheap and that he’s not the one to buy a round of drinks or buy clothes without a discount. So they’re surprised to find out that Adam is loosening his iron grip on his finances so that Behati Prinsloo can have the wedding of her dreams:

Adam Levine may have the swagger of a rock star, but he’s never had the spending habits – until now. Since getting engaged to model Behati Prinsloo, 24, friends say Adam, 34, has abandoned his thrifty ways, which include buying his clothes on sale and splitting the tab at group dinners. He’s even given his gorgeous fiancée a limitless wedding budget – as long as she works fast.

“Adam is in a mad rush to marry Behati… the sooner the better,” his friend reveals. “He’s ready to become a husband and father, so he told Behati to spend whatever she wants, even a million dollars, as long as the wedding is in the near future.”

Does Behati have Adam wrapped around her little finger? I can’t tell, quite honestly. All we really know for sure is that as soon as Behati wanted Adam back, he instantly broke up with Nina Agdal and proposed to Behati, seemingly all within a weekend. Does this mean Behati’s got game? Does this mean that Adam has finally found his soulmate? I hate to go back to “wisdom I learned from watching Sex & the City” but I’m starting to think that Adam’s light was on. He was just ready to get married and Behati was, like, the first girl he saw, maybe. So that’s why the quick wedding, no expense too great, etc. He’s just decided that he has to be married. Or maybe it’s true, passionate love. Eyeroll.

    He should hold back just a bit so he can spend as much on his second wedding.

    ok well he’s still a douche

  3. It'sJustBlanche says:

    From the neck up he looks really average. Imagine him as your next door neighbor. Meh.

  4. Melissa says:

    He might allow her a limitless budget but I have a feeling that he’s running the show in this relationship. I don’t think this is an equal partnership going on here. Adam’s stock was getting low and there were always rumors about how much of a douche he is. I wouldn’t say he doesn’t love her, but being married and having kids will make a difference in his career.

    Some people love but in their own ways at their own timing and with their own rules.

    AweI would love to hear them describe how they fell in love, not to say that they aren’t ; I just really need a good laugh!

  6. Christo says:

    In still photos, Adam can look very handsome, but his high-pitched vocal affectations and squinty, rodent-like reticence is so off-putting. Both he and Justin Theroux look as if they are bargain shoppers at the same GoodWill store in Los Angeles.

    It’s a disaster in the making

  8. janie says:

    I agree… he’s ready to get married and settle down. She’s so young, I hope he knows what he’s doing? He’s almost OCD & she looks like a thrown together mess. Love is blind?

  9. Meaghan says:

    They were together then broke up then together again right? Bet she gave the ultimatum. She left him cuz he wouldn’t get married, then realized how much he loved her, or how good marriage and kids would look, and begged her back?

    sex and the city ,taught us so much y’all,,behati is so naturally beautiful ,why in the world is she marrying this high pitched racoon?

    • Jess says:

      I’m back in the dating world for the first time since Sex and the City started and every time I tell my best friend about one of my dating disasters she brings up a SATC episode. I think I need to go back and watch the series for an education in men and dating!

    Maybe there is a sex tape of him and a guy out there….?
    What is the sudden rush to get married? If he’s so cheap (and I totally believe it), he shouldn’t be getting married at all.
    But hey….Spend all his money girl!

    • mimi says:

      They make a very attractive couple. As for Adam usually being on the thrifty side, I like to hear that about rich celebrities. Being sensible about spending is a wise attitude to possess no matter how much money you have. The ones that spend it like it’s water always worry me because the entertainment business is very fickle. You may be everyone’s darling and in great demand one minute but it’s very easy to be replaced with the next best new thing in a heartbeat.

      • ZigZagZoey says:

        I agree about not spending it like water, but I hate hearing about rich people who are cheap! If I were rich, I would love to be generous, especially like tipping or random acts of helping someone out.
        It is stupendously dumb how some of them do spend it like crazy, as if it will never keep coming in. Lots of athletes are like that.
        Oh well, no 2 people would spend $$ the same way no matter what! It is truly amazing how dumb some people are with $.

  12. Hubbahun says:

    Somebody’s got something to hide, in my opinion! I find him repellent and hopefully his fiancee will see sense and ditch his skanky a$$.

    • Tiffany says:

      I agree. Maybe he got involved with someone from The Voice and the timeline overlap with his relationship with her and this is a way of saving face if it becomes public.

      Or, he is pissed that Anne V has moved on to a baseball player and he is trying to one up her by proposing to the rebound. Pouring salt on the wound.

      • TexasMom says:

        I have thought all along that this is a response to Anne’s new high profile relationship. He once said on The Voice, that when someone breaks up with you, you want to make them more miserable than they have made you. I thought that was his reasoning for getting with Behati in the first place -solely to mess with Anne. The engagement seems to be another way of getting back at her.

  13. KC says:

    Neither one of them is attractive. I don’t understand the fuss.

  14. Deedee says:

    I think this is a revenge thing too. He seems super competitive on the voice and I remember how he kept needling china on the voice by having tony luca sing all this songs to get under her skin, oling the season for not only the singers, but the audience as well. He also seems jealous of Blake shelton, especially when shelton and usher so easily gelled together and Adam got dumped again. He seems very controlling and I think he may have some inferiority complex going on.
