Adam Levin addressed the rumors head-on after he was accused of having an extramarital relationship with the Instagram model sumner straw, He clarified that while they weren’t having an affair, he had “crossed the line.”
The Maroon 5 singer said in a statement to TMZ, which he also shared on his Instagram Stories, “I used poor judgment when speaking to anyone other than my wife [Behati Prinsloo] flirtatious in EVERY way. I didn’t have an affair, but I did cross the line at an unfortunate time in my life.” He added, “In certain instances it became inappropriate. I have addressed this and taken proactive steps with my family to remedy the situation. My wife and my family are all I care about in this world. Being naïve and stupid enough to risk the only thing that really matters to me was the biggest mistake I could ever make. I’ll never make it again I take full responsibility. We will get through it and we will get through it together.” Levine and Prinsloo have been married since 2014 and have two daughters together, aged five Dusty Rose and four year old Gio Grace. They also announced earlier this month that they currently have a third baby on the way.
The singer’s response comes a day after Stroh posted a TikTok claiming she and the musician were having an affair and shared screenshots of private messages she claims were from Levine, in which he asks if he can name his third child after her. In the clip, the model says it happened at a time when she was “young, naive” and she was “manipulated” and her “morals were unknowingly compromised.” She claims they saw each other for about a year and then, after not speaking for months, the Maroon 5 frontman suddenly texted her and said, “Okay, serious question. I’m having another baby and if so [a] Boy, I really want to call it Sumner. Do you agree? dead serious.”
Stroh also told Page Six that the affair took place “last year” when she was “graduating from college in 2021.” And when asked what the nature of their relationship was, she claimed it was “physical.” Though she added, “I haven’t spoken to him in months.” In a separate follow-up on TikTok, the model also apologized to Prinsloo for any injuries she may have caused her, saying that she was “full and is very clear[s]She is “not the victim” here. “I’m not the one who’s really getting hurt here. It’s Behati and her kids. And I’m so, so sorry about that.”
