23-year-old Sumner Stroh captivated the internet on September 19, 2022, after uploading a tell-all TikTok that went viral in which she revealed she was having an alleged affair with married man, Maroon 5 frontman, Adam Levine.

In her TikTok video, Stroh claimed that she carried out a year-long affair with Adam Levine, who is famously married to Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo. After breaking off contact with Levine for a “period of months,” Stroh then said that Levine reached out to her again via Instagram with a jaw-dropping message asking for permission to name his next baby after her. (Prinsloo is currently pregnant with their third child.)

Stroh claimed she felt “exploited” and “completely manipulated” by Levine, and said her “morals were unknowingly compromised” during the affair.

Adam Levine has now spoken out about the incident in a statement via his Instagram stories posted the next day, where he admitted to using “poor judgement in speaking to anyone other than my wife in a flirtatious manner” but denied Stroh’s accusations of cheating with her.

“I did not have an affair,” he continued. “Nevertheless, I crossed the line during a regrettable period in my life. In certain instances it became inappropriate; I have addressed this and taken proactive steps to remedy this with my family.” Read his full statement below!
