Instagram model Sumner Stroh has accused Adam Levine of being unfaithful to his pregnant wife, Behati Prinsloo, with her.
The Texas native, 23, shared screenshots of a conversation she allegedly had with the Maroon 5 frontman, 43, over Instagram in a TikTok video posted Monday, which has since gone viral.
Levine swiftly denied Stroh’s accusations but admitted he “crossed the line” by talking to her over social media.
Here’s everything you need to know about the social media influencer involved in the alleged affair.
What did Stroh and Levine’s alleged messages say?
In her explosive TikTok video, which has been viewed more than 15 million times, Stroh claimed she was “manipulated” by the “Wake Up Call” crooner.
“Essentially, I was having an affair with a man who’s married to a Victoria’s Secret model. At the time, I was young, I was naive and, quite frankly, I feel exploited,” she began. “I wasn’t in ‘the scene’ like I am now, so I was definitely very easily manipulated.”
Stroh continued, “Maroon 5 is practically elevator music at this point, so I’m sure you know who Adam Levine is. But, Adam and I were seeing each other for about a year. After I stopped talking to him over a period of months, this is how he came back into my life.”
She then showed a screenshot of an Instagram DM that Levine allegedly sent her in June.
“Ok serious question. I’m having another baby and if it’s w [sic] boy I really wanna name it Sumner. You OK with that? DEAD serious,” the message read, referencing the baby he is expecting with Prinsloo.
“I was like … I have to be in hell at this point,” Stroh continued. “My morals were unknowingly compromised. I was completely manipulated.”
In another message, which appeared via a green screen behind her, the Grammy winner purportedly wrote, “It is truly unreal how f–king hot you are. Like it blows my mind.”
Stroh then appeared to respond, “I mean I think the same. Seeing you in person I was like … I’m f–ked.”
An additional DM allegedly sent by the “She Will Be Loved” singer read, “You are 50 times hotter in person. And so am I hahahah.”
Why did Stroh reveal the alleged affair?
The model said she initially “wanted to handle” matters “privately” and “never wanted to come forward.”
However, she claimed someone in her circle had attempted to sell the screenshots to a tabloid.
“I know the implications that come with doing what I do — making money the way I do and being an Instagram model,” she said. “So being tied to a story like this … I know stereotypes.”
Stroh continued, “I had sent some screenshots, recklessly, to a few friends I thought I trusted, and one of them had attempted to sell [the screenshots] to a tabloid, so here I am.”
When did the alleged affair take place?
Stroh claimed to Page Six exclusively that her involvement with Levine took place “last year” when she “graduated college.”
She then alleged that she and Levine dated for “about a year” and that he came back into her life months later when he inquired about naming his next child after her.
What does she do for work?
She now works as a marketing manager in addition to modeling and influencing on Instagram, where she boasts more than 370,000 followers.
Has Levine issued a response?
The Maroon 5 singer publicly responded to the claims on his Instagram Story Tuesday.
“I used poor judgment in speaking with anyone other than my wife in ANY kind of flirtatious manner,” he began his statement. “I did not have an affair, nevertheless, I crossed the line during a regrettable period of my life.”
Levine said his interactions “in certain instances” became “inappropriate.”
“I have addressed that and taken proactive steps to remedy this with my family,” he continued.
“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.”
Levine has been married to Prinsloo, 34, since July 2014.
The couple share daughters Dusty Rose, 5, and Gio Grace, 4, and confirmed just last week that their third baby is on the way.
