‘A regrettable period in my life’: Everything we know about the Adam Levine scandal
He denies having an affair with Sumner Stroh
23-year-old model, Sumner Stroh, alleged she had an affair with Adam Levine – and now the Maroon 5 frontman has responded, denying all claims.
It gets WILDER. The model initially posted a TikTok, claiming Adam wants to name his unborn child… yep, Sumner. In the video, she made several allegations about a supposed affair with Adam, as well as showing “screenshots” of the entire exchange.
The singer has been married to model Behati Prinsloo since 2014, and they already have one child together.
In a TikTok titled: “Embarrassed I was involved w a man with this utter lack of remorse and respect,” Sumner stated she was “having an affair with a man who’s married to a Victoria’s Secret model.”
“At the time, I was young; I was naïve and quite frankly I felt exploited,” she said. “I was definitely very easily manipulated.”
Sumner then used the alleged messages as a green-screen, where Adam Levine’s name can be seen at the top. The messages read, “it is truly unreal how fucking hot you are, like it blows my mind” and “you are 50 times hotter in person… and so am I”. She claimed she’d been seeing Adam for “about a year.”
The model alleged the pair had stop talking for “a period of months”. She claimed the first message he sent after a long period of time read: “Ok serious question. I’m having another baby and if its a boy I really wanna name it Sumner. You ok with that? DEAD serious.”
Sumner insisted she “never wanted to come forward… being tied to a story like this, I know the stereotypes.” She claimed she was only coming out with the story because one of her friends attempted to “sell the story to a tabloid.”
Adam released a statement, refuting the rumours on his Instagram: “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.
Sumner has since posted an apology TikTok
The Instagram model posted an apology video yesterday (20th September), explaining that “hindsight is twenty-twenty”.
“I only came forward because I wanted to kill whatever story the tabloids had,” she said. “I was under the impression their marriage was over… being naïve is not an excuse for the role I played in this. I’m not the one who’s really getting hurt here. It’s Behati and her children, and, for that I’m so, so sorry.”
