Adam Levine claims he ‘did not have an affair’ with Insta-model Sumner Stroh

This week, we learned that Adam Levine was sleeping with an Insta-model named Sumner Stroh, and that he wants to name his third child after his mistress? Adam is currently married to Behati Prinsloo, they’ve been together for the better part of a decade and they already have two daughters and Behati is pregnant with their third. At no point did anyone think that Adam was faithful to Behati, nor did any of us believe that he was happy at home with his beautiful model wife and two beautiful children. Of course Adam Levine is a sleazy cheater, he always has been. The fact that he was sliding into an Instamodel’s DMs though? Tacky. Anyway, Adam has decided to simply deny, deny, deny.

Adam Levine is breaking his silence after he was publicly accused of cheating on Behati Prinsloo, his pregnant wife of eight years.

The Maroon 5 frontman, 43, posted to Instagram on Tuesday morning: “A lot is being said about me right now and I want to clear the air. 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 in my life.”

Levine 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.”

So… Adam Levine, a sleazy 43-year-old husband and father, got called out on TikTok by his former mistress and his response is to claim that he merely had some inappropriate communications with Sumner? Yeah, it’s going to get worse before it gets better. Sumner Stroh was literally sending his texts to all of her friends – I imagine she has many more receipts than just texts. She probably has tons of videos and photos. Come on, she’s Generation TikTok – of course she has more evidence of their affair than just some texts. Sumner also responded to Adam’s IG statement, posting this to her IG Stories: “Someone get this man a dictionary.”

Meanwhile, the other obvious thing happened after Sumner’s TikTok – other women started coming forward. A comedian named Maryka has texts/DMs where Levine was trying to flirt with her and hook up with her. Another woman named Alyson Rosef also got inappropriate DMs from Levine. Sounds like Levine was casting a wide net on social media and hooking up with any woman who took the bait. Gross.

    Well, this played out exactly as one would expect.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      almost to the letter.

      next step…”sex addiction rehab” in 3, 2, 1….

    • DouchesOfCambridge says:

      of course 1000% he did not. 1000% believe him. I have a feeling we’re gonna know a lot more about the “She will be loved” singer.

  2. nutella toast says:

    Mkay Adam. Ew.
    That’s all I’ve got.

  3. Z says:

    Someone on Facebook said something like “the mistresses are coming out because former mistress Camilla is now a Queen” and I haven’t stopped laughing LOL

  4. ML says:

    What shocked me reading about this story yesterday is that AL would go so far as to potentially name his future son after his past mistress. The fact that other women are piping up that AL was inappropriate with them while married is absolutely no surprise. I wish BP a ton of strength.

    • Pointillist says:

      He also can’t stop talking about his future baby’s names with the women he contacts – so bizarre.

      • HelloDolly! says:

        I haven’t read Adam’s other DMs…is he bringing up the baby to sound cutesy/approachable as he flirts with these women?! Or is it an excuse to speak to them again? Really bizarre lol lol.

    • Onomo says:

      What shocked me was a woman who asked her followers if they had ever heard of kids being named after a mistress and at least a dozen replied that they were kids named after their grandad or dad’s former gfs or mistresses.

      Do women do this too? I just…brain = boggled

      • HelloDolly! says:

        LOL, Onomo, I am not a big believer in psychoanalysis, but this SCREAMS weird sexual unconscious, LOL LOL

    • ME says:

      What I don’t understand is that he told his mistress he was separated from his wife…but then DM’s her asking if he can name his and his wife’s baby after her? Make it make sense lol !!!

  5. Stef says:

    To think he’d already solidified his douchebag status with that hideous neck tattoo, but wait – there’s more!

    So gross. I hope Bahati gets tested for STIs because this loser is probably infested.

    Wonder how many other young IG bimbos will come forward.

    • Amanda says:

      Seriously!! Herpes is potentially fatal to babies…so reckless and thoughtless.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        Yup!! Found out at 6 months pregnant, in ‘89, then-husband had doctored his STD tests in ‘86, as AIDS/HIV was prevalent. I wouldn’t touch a man without one. Not pretty, not pretty at all.

      • Amanda says:

        Urgh, sorry to hear that @Bothsidesnow…what an utter piece of rotten sh!t. I wish I could punch his teeth out for you. What an awful thing to do to someone during what should be a joyous time…

  6. Genevieve says:

    This Instagram model person used the word “naive” once in her first video, twice on the second. I don’t believe it’s a coincidence that Adam used that word in his blatantly insincere apology. Either that decision was a veiled threat or a narcissist’s tendency to think they’re smarter and better than everyone. I don’t know how a woman can even look at this man and not see a total douche.

    My ex husband met me when I was Behati’s age and he very close to Adam’s when they met. He was also a narcissist and deeply emotionally abusive. Thankfully I don’t have children. I hope B gets some therapy and some independence.

  7. Flowerlake says:

    I know his name but have no idea what he’s famous for

  8. Lucy2 says:

    Oof. Maybe his wife is willing to convince herself that sort of nonsense is true, but I think everyone else sees him for who he is.

  9. littlegossipboy says:

    In his messages to Sumner he wrote something along the lines of “You’re so much hotter in person.” …. so I don’t believe him. I bet she has a stack more evidence ready to go.

  10. Tiffany says:

    So he is not denying having sex with Sumner or other women not his wife. That is how that statement read. He is basically saying he had no emotional attachment to these women who agreed to have sex with him. He is horrible.

    • Blue Nails Betty says:

      Exactly. The phrasing is typical of someone who is trying to deflect by using a definitions as weapons.

      “I did not have sex with that woman” deflecting an accusation of receiving a blowjob from that woman.

      “I did not have an affair, nevertheless, I crossed the line during a regrettable period in my life.” deflecting an accusation of emotion based sex.

    • nisa says:

      Tiffany/Blue Nails, agree. As if having random, emotionless hookups while his wife is pregnant is somehow better/more respectful. If anything she needs to get tested for STIs stat.

      • Blue Nails Betty says:

        If my husband cheated on me with random sex I would be even more hurt that he would risk throwing away our marriage for meaningless hookups.

  11. Pilar says:

    He and his wife did a pap walk together yesterday….All smiles so I don’t think she’s gonna leave him.
    Shades of Dominic West and his wife.

    • Ref says:

      I mean, Adam was with another woman when he first started up with Behati so I’m sure she knows what she got into. It’s just unfortunate she had kids with him.

  12. Aly says:

    I was not shocked by this mess cause IMO most showbiz men are cheaters.

  13. ME says:

    She said she was “naive” at the time she was involved with him. She was 22 then, she’s 23 now. Not much of a difference. Both are wrong here. He’s a cheating jackass and she’s a thirsty woman who had no issue being in a relationship with a married man. The only victims here are his wife and kids.

    • Coco says:

      I think she was referring to her believing him when he said that his marriage was over and they hadn’t gone public yet with the split. Which I can see why she believed him, I mean look at Florence Pugh and Zach Braff they had been split for a over a year before they announced it.
      Not to mean that’s a lie most married men who cheat use so yes I believe her.

      As for the difference between her being 22 and 23 is she knows better now after seeing that he was lying the whole time.

    • Pilar says:

      Right, I mean we are going down that road of arguing that the IG model should have known better then it’s easy to argue that his wife should have known better too.
      This is the same guy who argued that monogamy is not natural and who dumped her for Nina Agdal previously when they were dating, dumped Nina via text to reunite with the now wife, then they got married shortly.
      Based just one that example I bet he’s a seasoned love bomber and manipulative.. and if a VS model with a good career can fall for his BS then sure as hell can some random 20 something IG model. Because who the F marries the guy that dumped you to ran away with another woman within months of him dumping the other woman to get back with you?

      But let’s focus on calling out this lying, cheating idiot instead of tearing down the women please.

      • ME says:

        @ Pilar

        I’m not tearing anyone down. I just think when a man or woman cheats, they don’t do it alone. It takes two. He’s a piece of sh*t, no doubt. But she is no victim here. She’s internet savvy…it doesn’t take much to google the dude. He was doing interviews with his wife. They did a whole spread for a magazine not that long ago showing off their home. Also, it’s publicly known she is pregnant. Not enough red flags?

    • Jessica says:

      She was 22 though, and he lied to her about the status of his marriage. Sumner is a victim too here, women that age are easily manipulated and truly naive, 43 year old married men are not.

  14. Onomo says:

    I don’t know why but I feel strangely protective of this sumner person? I can’t imagine what it would be like to have a famous guy dm me, and make crazy promises, offer to fly me anywhere -especially If I was feeling insecure at all, which I was all through my 20s.

    When I was in my 20s, My friend went on a date well known musician- she just figured the date would make a good story one day, didn’t let anything happen – but then he pursued her hard after and it was harder for her to say no against all his money, attention and power. Private car sent for her to take her to his place, dinners at the best restaurants in nyc, gifts, he bought artwork from her friends, met us whenever we were out and it was late to pick us up, or sent his driver.

    Twenty year olds are dumb and yeah my friend was, but either you don’t have the experience to see the shadiness or you put blinders on because you are too busy enjoying the other benefits of not feeling dismissed.

    Power is tricky and I wish we talked about what it means in the context of intimate relationships.

    • Otaku fairy says:

      +1. This young woman was under the impression that someone she was sleeping with was seperated, ended things when she found out that was not the case, and apologized for the impact of her actions even though her mistake was being deceived. That’s more than can be said for August Alsina, Harry Styles, or Justin Bieber. So why is she being slut-shamed? Why are the other women who didn’t even sleep with Adam but got DMs from him also having misogynistic slurs thrown at them?

    • Twin Falls says:

      +1 and if you’ve never had the misfortune of being the object of attention of a practiced manipulator, don’t judge.

  15. trudy says:

    He’s got the smallest greasy lil head, fame holes are so gross to hook up with old slimeys, but she’s got exactly what she wanted out of it and hopefully a nice recurrent sore or wart

  16. jferber says:

    Well, I fully believe he had sex with this young woman and probably many more. His wife is 34 now, so of course he will go after 19 year old women because he “deserves” hot young women because . . . well, just because. Narcissist, check. But yeah about Behati getting checked for sexually transmitted diseases. Once as a young single teacher, I asked a friend, an older married teacher when you could finally trust your husband fully, after how many years of marriage? She said “Never” and I’ve never forgotten that. I don’t believe all men cheat, but this one? How much older than 40 is he? He can claim “mail menopause,” “mid-life crisis,” “sex addiction,” whatever and it will all pass over– until the next time.

  17. Bobbi says:

    Like a lot of men, he’s looking for strange. And no matter how hot or great a woman is, she can’t be strange and new for very long.

  18. Sam H x says:

    A fourth woman has come forward about him flirting with her via DMs. This is getting hella messy now! I do have sympathy for his pregnant wife and children. I wouldn’t be surprised if more come out of the wood works. The only one to blame is Adam as he is married and has children.

  19. AppleCart says:

    I guess I am in the minority. But I don’t think he actually met up with these women. He enjoys sexting and probably compartmentalized it all in his head. If he didn’t do anything physical it wasn’t actual ‘cheating’ And Behati isn’t going anywhere. I thought she was hooking up with him when he was with Anne V. And she and Behati were good friends. Until Adam and Behati went public.

    She knows exactly who she married.

  20. TEALIEF says:

    This man wasn’t a super fly fisherman casting his lines into the waters of social media, or casting a net from the shore into shallow waters. Mr. I’ve got the moves like Jagger was fishing off the back of a commercial trawler with a dragnet in illegal fishing grounds at night. He is a pathetic, sleazy cliché. I hope his pregnant wife finds peace and focuses on herself and their children.

  21. Maria says:

    I honestly believe that he just like to talk/text. I saw the headlines and thought the DMs would be super agressive and raunchy, but it’s really soft. Two of the women who “came foward” with “accusations” literally talked to him about… tattoos. And he also wrote in the DMs he didn’t sleep with anyone but his wife.

  22. Gobo says:

    Aside: why is his mouth always a teeny bit open? That has to be intentional, right? He thinks it makes him look attractive?

  23. Jezzebeelzebub says:

    Maroon 5 makes shitty music, y’all. It’s really not good. Nobody should bang Adam Levine- not ever- because his music is bad and he has always been and will forever be a smarmy little shit whose ego laughably outweighs what is arguably referred to as his talent. I know his band was popular and they had songs on the radio and their albums sold, but IT WAS NOT GOOD. It just wasn’t. At best it was the musical equivalent to Vienna sausages or potted meat. You can eat them. They won’t kill you. Some people like them and will eat em on purpose. But that shit is NOT good food, and if either is a mainstay of your diet, they maybe could kill you- Jesus, just the sodium alone! Adam Levine is potted meat. You can serve that shit on toast points with some nice brie and capers it whatever but it’s still dried out, ground up lips and assholes from the floor of the slaughterhouse that came out of a little can, and there’s nothing you can do to hide that fact or dress it up. It’s still barely edible shit in a can, and so is Levine. In conclusion, fuck that guy right in his pointy, little beady-eyed face forever. Amen.
