Adam Levine, the vocalist of Maroon 5, said Tuesday that he "broke a line" with an Instagram model but denied cheating on his pregnant wife, while two other women said the singer sent them flirtatious messages.
Sumner Stroh, a tattooed father of two, accused her of having a year-long romance with her in a now-viral TikTok account, and Levine, 43, admitted to sending "flirtatious" texts with her.
Levin said in an Instagram post that he used bad judgement to communicate in any manner other than with my wife. "I did not have an affair, but I crossed the line during a difficult period in my life."
Levine promised to work through the situation with his wife, former Victoria's Secret model Behati Prinsloo, 34. The couple has two daughters, ages 5 and 4, and has been married since 2014. The couple announced earlier this month that they are expecting their third child.
“It's all I care about in this world: my wife and my family,” he said. “To be so naive and ignorant as to put the only thing that truly matters to me in jeopardy was the greatest mistake I could ever make.” I will never do that again. I accept all responsibility. We will get through it, and we will do so together.
Stroh said in a shocking video, which has received over 15 million views, that she had been dating the singer of "Moves Like Jagger" for almost a year until she "graduated college in 2021."
When he texted her unexpectedly in June, she said she wanted to name his little son "Sumner."
In the June 1 correspondence, Levine allegedly wrote, "I'm having a second baby, and it's a boy, and I really want to call him Sumner." Are you okay with that? "I'm dead serious."
Stroh, who hails from Texas but lives in Los Angeles, claims she went public with her story after being duped by a friend, who supposedly obtained screenshots of Levine's explicit conversations.
“It’s unbelievable how hot you are.” He reportedly texted her, “It blows my head.” According to Stroh, the alleged affair took place “last year” and was “physical, yeah, but I’m not saying anything further.”
Following Levine's denial, Stroh appeared to shade Levine in a cryptic Instagram post.
“Someone get this guy a dictionary,” she wrote on Facebook.
According to TMZ, two additional women allegedly shared screenshots of amusing interactions with Levine while the uproar erupted.
In a green screen TikTok video Monday, Alyson Rose said Levine texted her, "I shouldn't be talking to you, you realize [that] right?"
On Tuesday, another woman, comedian Maryka, shared her alleged messages with Levine on her Instagram Story, beginning with his apparent message to her that read, "I'm now infatuated with you."
Maryka replied, "I do like to get married, but it's a little tough."
Levine has not responded publicly to either of the women's accusations.
Stroh was chastised on TikTok, with many claiming her to be a mature lady who showed no remorse for her claimed marriage with a married guy.
She stated in a subsequent TikTok video posted on Monday that she "completely realizes" that she is not the victim in the situation.
Stroh said, "I'm not the one who's getting hurt here. "It's Behati and her kids," she added. "I apologize."
She later took to Instagram Stories to express the outrage she received in response to her statements.
“Aware individuals will attempt to fill up gaps with numerous incorrect assumptions.” Stroh said. “I don't feel like I'm doing anyone any harm considering how this had to go down,” he said.
Stroh posted a "part 2" video late Monday, claiming she's "disgusted."
"I'm embarrassed and ashamed of the agony and pain I've caused," she said. "I didn't want to appear whiny, so I didn't say that in this video."
