Adam Levine is “heartbroken, blindsided” after Anne V publicly dumped him

Last week, Anne V made sure that everyone knew she dumped Adam Levine. I thought Anne deserved a pat on the back for that one – she and Adam had dated for two years, and that’s a long time to put up with someone so douchey. That’s a long time to put up with someone whose idea of birth control is “pulling out.” And I kind of loved that she (or her publicist) was so adamant about Anne doing the dumping. It made her seem like a girl with a plan. Now Us Weekly reports that Adam was totally devastated when Anne broke up with him via a press release:

Adam Levine is, well, in misery. After his Sports Illustrated swimsuit model girlfriend of two years, Anne Vyalitsyna, dumped him, she announced it to the world April 2 without giving him a heads-up.

“It was a cheap shot,” a pal tells the new issue of Us Weekly (out now). “Anne didn’t want it to look like he broke up with her.”

The Maroon 5 frontman and Voice mentor, 33 — who was home in L.A. when Vyalitsyna broke up with him from NYC — “was blindsided,” says a Levine pal. “Adam’s heartbroken. He wasn’t even fully sure they were really broken up.”

The insider adds that as recently as late March, “he thought they were together!”

Though Levine didn’t predict a split, friends of the couple saw it coming. “Anne said he didn’t pay her enough attention,” a friend of the model, 26, tells Us.

Another gripe: Levine wasn’t planning to propose anytime soon. “As a woman, you get to a point where you want to get married,” an insider explains. “Adam wasn’t ready to take that step.”

Vyalitsyna, it seems, is now on the hunt for someone who will. Says a source of the model – seen partying at NYC’s Darby on April 1st – “she’s telling people she wants to meet guys!”

Though I hate to admit it, Adam will probably have no trouble drowning his sorrows in an endless amount of model ass. He has a type (models), and for whatever reason, those are the girls who flock to him. Of course, he could go in another direction and end up with Jennifer Love Hewitt, who has publicly discussed her crush on him. But seriously – what dude goes from a Victoria’s Secret model to J. Love? Poor J. Love. As for Anne V and any potential men she could end up with… well, she’s Leonardo DiCaprio’s type. Has Leo ever dated a Russian? Ooooh, now I’m obsessed with the idea of them together. That should totally happen.

    Oooohhhh, can you imagine the drama at the Victoria’s Secret’s show backstage?

    Or maybe not…DiCaprio + a random Victoria’s Secret model is such an ordinary thing nowadays that they (the unDiCaprioed) probably get aligned every time he breaks up with one of them, you know…to make it easier for him to pick and choose the next one.

  3. Lizzie says:

    I know he seems like a big d-bag but…..I still find him totally hot. I hate myself a little bit.

  4. Feminist Fran says:

    Good for HER!!! Men have been doing this crap to women for years. It’s about time they get a taste of their own medicine. YOU GO, GIRL!!!

    • Mari says:

      I would have dumped him solely for that comment alone. How embarrassing.

    • mimi says:

      Look, this guy is a douche but I think its unfair to pile the blame for the pull-out statement solely on him. Afterall she was not only present when he said it, but she was party to the nonsense that led up to that statement.

      Incase you didnt hear the interview, its available on Youtube.

      Howard Stern asks Adam whether he uses condoms, he says no. So he then asks Ana if shes on birth control, she says no. Howard is shocked at this and a five minute exchange commences. Is Adam sterile? What about stds? What would happen if she got pregnant? The both stammer out responses like “we know she wont get pregnant”. Howard keeps pushing and eventually Adam says that he pulls out before ejaculation. Douchey, yes. But shes no lady either. She could simply have said that shes on some birth control instead she spent the five minutes giggling at Howard.

      My take out from that interview was that these two were not having sex with each other. I cant imagine that a model would be so cavalier with pregnancy. That and the shmaltzy first-time-we-met story they told, convinced me. Relationship was a publicity stunt….possibly bearding!

  5. Bubbling says:

    Look at his smug face on last picture ugh…that “pulling out” comment was so immature and disrespectful towards her..douche lord

  6. Jennifer says:

    Who would want to be with a guy who publicly discussed their sex life?

  7. Gene Parmesan says:

    She already got with leo. Google it. It was on to the next tall blonde for him x 10

  8. Jayna says:

    Wow, you said long time to put up with someone who uses pulling out as birth control. I and many of my friends have used that for differing reasons. Second of all, she isn’t judged on their decision? There is plenty of birth control she could use. Spare me calling him out for THEIR decision as a longtime couple regarding THEIR birth control.

    • ol cranky says:

      I don’t think the problem is the method of contraception they used so much as him feeling the need to discuss and describe it – it was just so douchey

      • Jayna says:

        “That’s a long time to put up with someone whose idea of birth control is to pull out.”. That was the quote.

      • ol cranky says:

        Jayna – yeah but the text was linked to the article where he made the comment

  9. alison8701 says:

    J. Love would probably be “perfect” for Adam in the sense that she would probably let him walk all over her and take the blame for his indiscretions. “I can’t believe he cheated on me, then again, I haven’t put a lot of effort into my appearance lately…”

    Stay away J. Love. You do not need that kind of guy. Whatever she’s dealing with now, I guarantee he’ll make it worse.

    No more douchey hollywood dudes- I’m SERIOUS, Jennifer. She needs to get with some chubby bearded dude with a good sense of humor and a good heart, who worships her and treats her all nice and shit.

    (and I might have just inadvertently revealed what I need. hmm. whatever, you’re not my therapist!)

    • Kara Ann says:

      I agree that this guy would make J.Love Crazy-er! C’mon, if he ain’t the marryin’ type then he certainly isn’t her type. I do think that she would give it her all to try and change him and make herself miserable in the process.

      And the “pull out” comment should have cued his girlfriend to make sure that he never got to “put in” ever again. Some things are truly better left discussed privately, imagine that!

      • gg says:

        oy, those two would be like oil and water. I seriously doubt J. Love is a sweet little thing who puts up with a lot of abuse. I think she runs men off because she wants to control and style the relationship to her fairytale, and she seems like she might have a hair-trigger temper if she feels she’s been slighted, which is all the time, and has to voice her adamancy. Or maybe I’m just projecting all my single friends’ reasons why they can’t hook a man even though they’re really cute otherwise. Not picking your battles will run men off like nobody’s business.

  10. Jayna says:

    Many girls break up to give a wakeup call to their boyfriend. If he is devastated, i predict he will beg her for a second chance and they will get back together. It happens all the time in all walks of life,

    • DreamyK says:

      That’s a rough way to choke a marriage proposal out of someone. I don’t think I’d want to be with someone who I had to manipulate to commit to me, but we’ll see how it works for her.

      This could also be his PR’s way of garnering sympathy in the midst of his over exposure in the media.

  11. atorontogal says:

    This couldn’t have happened to a nicer douche bag! Looks good on him 🙂

    • Tapioca says:

      Sadly not. He’s only “heartbroken” because it makes him look like a tortured, sensitive soul – which in turn gets him balls-deep in more models.

      Manipulative Horny Douchebag 101!

      • alison8701 says:

        Manipulative Horny Douchebag 101? Oh yeah, I’ve heard of that class.. it’s taught by John Mayer, right?

  12. Leticia says:

    It was her turn to pull out.

  13. Franny says:

    I want to pencil some eyebrows on her.

    Still can’t get over her diaper dress

    • Coucou says:

      Me neither! HATE that ugly thing! And to think anyone gave Angelina sh!t for her leg at the Oscar’s, they sure as hell didn’t see this piece of work…ick

    • Esmom says:

      For someone so beautiful and in the industry, she makes some horrible fashion choices.

    • Claire says:

      Both the hair and the dress are terrible. Know she is pretty, but sick of this same old model look

  14. Julie says:

    i dont think better of her because she was the one to break up. i mean she was with him for two years. that says a lot about her.

  15. Minky says:

    He definitely does have a type, but in that second picture of her, she looks a little like Kate Bosworth. I think she’s maybe a little too old for Leo – doesn’t he like them super young?

  16. tripmom says:

    I can’t believe the double standard. When Matt Damon broke up with Minnie Driver through the media instead of discussing it with her like a gentleman we all called him an ass. And we were right. For Anne V to pull the move is no better just because she’s a chick. Just tacky.

  17. Suzy (from Ontario, Canada) says:

    Love the outfit she’s wearing in that top photo. They did look together.

    I like him. I don’t really know him well, but I saw him on Anderson and he seemed nice.

    I do think it was pretty rude for her to break up with him the way she did after two years. That’s not right. At least meet up and do it face to face. After two years a person, male or female, deserves that imo.

  18. Chatcat says:

    Reading this story and all the posts I can’t seem to get the tune of that 90’s anthem by New Radicals “you only get what you give” out of my head. I mean he gives off the impression of being one of the biggest jackass’s out there and she seems lacking in the self respect department, so really who is surprised how this whole thing has played out? I think you have to have substance to begin with and these two are sorely lacking that!

  19. ella says:

    “As a woman, you get to a point where you want to get married,” <— this needs to stop. It's so black and white to think that all women are desperate to get married while men just want to sleep around.

    If she actually broke up with him via a press release, then she's the douche.

    I guess they were a perfect couple, then.

    • Agnes says:

      YES! couldn’t agree more with EVERYTHING you just said. esp. the “all women want to get married” sh-t. 🙂

  20. LittleDeadGirl says:

    It’s a douchebag move on her part. He may deserve it but I don’t see why we should give her any trophies.

  21. Jazzmin says:

    This is the typical hot/gorgeous woman syndrome. When a woman is young/sexy/hot she acts like she is God’s gift to any man she blesses with her presence. Then the years start knocking on her door; there are hotter/sexier/younger women around. Soon she hits her 40s has to settle for having kids via vitro, adopting on her own or marrying whatever bloke gives her the time of day. Example: Charlize Theron

    • endoplasmic_ridiculum says:

      Ech. Did you really just write this? In 2012? I’m checking my computer calendar. It better say “1955” and then start to fade away a la Back to the Future…..

    • Becky1 says:

      I’m sure Charlize doesn’t have to settle for marrying “whatever bloke gives her the time of day” LOL! Although I obviously can’t speak for Charlize, there are some women out there who don’t want to be married or who would rather be single than settle for someone who isn’t a good match.

  22. Rux says:

    This is FAB news. Serves him right after dumping Jessica Simpson via text.

    I love the guy artistically, I really do, but as a “human being” he’s an ultra douche with extra vinegar.

  23. Tee says:

    There is no doubt that Adam is handsome but he is still a major d-bag

  24. Jdao says:

    Good for her. If she wants to get married and he’s not willing or ready after two years, then drop that chicken dinner and find you a winner. Next!

  25. Sandra says:

    I think people here are a little bit wrong. You must read between lines. Go to her twitter: she is quiet and seems sad and depressed. He is working and seems well, I mean he didn’t change very much. Who dumped who? Go and watch and hear the two on Stern interview. For me, there was love between them. And just one month later, everything changed! And on March 18th (Adam’s birthday)Anne said he was everything to her –> and on April 2nd she leaves him??? Look, something big and serious happened and I bet Adam was the victim this time…..

    • Jen says:

      I see something too. On March 20th he told on twitter “I shaved my hair…sometimes it’s necessary…like an emotional reboot. It’ll grow back again…” Emotional reboot, March 20th/split announcement on April 2nd?? Something serious happened here. I bet he dumped her and she made the cheap statement. Shame on you Anne V! Good for you Adam, I hope you’ve learned the lesson!

  26. Lisa B. says:

    I always thought he was a douche and but I think he actually may be sad about losing Anne.

    He always praised her in public and said that this was the best relationship he ever had. I even thought they were gonna get married eventually. He was probably never faithful, I know, but what else could you expect of a man like him? No one gets in a relationship with someone with his reputation without knowing the risks.

    I hate to say this, but, though Anne V. had a great career before Adam, I think she used him for publicity, like Gisele and other models did (or do) by dating famous men.

    He put her on his videos, he took her to award shows, did many magazine spreads with her, introduced her to his friends and anywhere they went, because of him, she got papped too. Even on the Victoria’s Secret show, do you think she would’ve been as noticed if he didn’t did that kiss thing? I don’t think so.

    Never thought I’d ever defend Adam but I think she just used him until she saw there was nothing much left to gain. Now she’ll probably try to get some other rock star idiot (or Hollywood idiot) to make her even more famous.

    • garvels says:

      I completely agree with you. For some reason it is difficult for me to feel sorry for a tall gorgeous super model. They both benefited from the extra PR….that’s showbiz. If she wants to get married,I am sure there are thousands of regular Joe’s who would be more than happy to marry her.

  27. Birdie says:

    She used him for fame, now he is useless for her.

  28. Ask Ashley says:

    Ugh…Adam is such a narcissist.

  29. Mary says:

    Good for him!! Anne V is a kind of woman that only wants fame, fortune and attention….. through a man. Leo DiCaprio dumped her. She’s nothing without Adam or Leo or whoever. Oh and she is looking for guys now…who is the douchey?????

  30. Agnes says:

    it’s a totally douche move on her part, if she indeed broke up with him via a press release. and she has to be pretty douchey to begin with if she was with him for two years. seems that like attracts like.

  31. Sm says:

    They both look like spoiled idiots to me. He being the poster guy for douchebags everywhere. He should teach a college course on it. (sadly, a lot of people would sign up) she looks like an anorexic show off who just wants the world to worship her and pay her becaused she was blessed with good genetics body wise. The face is nothing great

  33. sup says:

    can’t blame her, she’s too hot for him. and if i heard adam levine’s annoying nasal voice everyday i would hang myself.

    • Sandy says:

      Anne V too hot?? Look at her face! And gimme a break!

      • sup says:

        she only looks a bit masculine in the last pic? she looks nice in the very first one. but i admit i am not familiar with her. i’m far more of a candice fan

  34. Lem says:

    A. She was sitting next to him for the “pull out” comment and presumably knows this as she is what he pulls out from

    2. I think he meant pull out of Blake Sheldon (or vise versa)

    C. Who? Seriously? I’m a celeb gossip whoore and he’s just tipped the radar

  35. Jenn says:

    Im so sick of anyone calling him a a d-bag.. As far as fans go he is the NICEST celeb you would ever meet! So incredibly thankful for everything! A complete doll.. I have met him quite a few times and hes always been a sweetheart!
    As far as Anne goes that bitch got what she wanted! She wanted to further her career by sponging off of his. Mission accomplished.. Im so glad shes gone she was going to destroy that band.

    • Sandy says:

      Just perfect!
      She’s quiet now, but she wants him calling her back! I hope not. Anne V is a well known famew***e and Adam doesn’t deserve this kind of woman.

  36. erin says:

    Well, if the blinds are to be believed, the person who is happiest about this news has the initials Blake Shelton.

  37. crtb says:

    I don’t feel sorry for him at all. He’ll just go to the Victoria Sectret model store and get himself another 6’0″ blonde girlfriend. That’s where Leo shops for all of his girlfriends. And any woman who uses “pulling out” as birth control is an idiot. How does that keep you from catching an STD?

  38. svice says:

    I didn’t mind the pulling out comment, it was an honest one! Haven’t we all been there, at some point?

  39. Shannon says:

    They didn’t have a relationship; they had a publationship. If you look at all her tweets when they were together, the only time she was gushing about Adam was when he was involved with anything she was working on (the Russian Vogue spread) or when she was in one of his videos, which was two of; or when she was on the set of The Voice. And good for her in dumping him for not wanting to marry her? If anyone watched the Piers Morgan show, he said pretty much that he didn’t feel that he had to be married to be in a solid relationship; he also pointed out in that same exact interview that he didn’t see himself with kids for the next six years. So in my eyes, she knew from that point on that he wasn’t going to pop any questions to her; and she stayed in the relationship. She’s just miffed that she didn’t get her way with him. If I do recall, right at the start of her “relationship” with him, she told one of her friends who was joking about how hard it was to pronounce her last name “Hopefully soon I can get that changed to a simpler one.” She posted that right on her Twitter timeline. Another time she whined about how she wanted to go out (because at that time the paparazzi were snapping them left and right for the websites) and how he wanted to stay in “How do you get someone to go out when they want to stay in?” I wouldn’t hoot congrats to her for dumping him (if that even happened) because bottom line is she knew some time that he wouldn’t propose to her and she still stuck around.
