Adam Levine breaks silence on influencer cheating allegation: ‘I’ve crossed the line’


Adam Levine admits he’s “judging badly” but not a full-blown affair after an Instagram influencer claimed she had an extramarital affair with the Maroon 5 frontman for months.

The singer addressed the allegations made by Sumner Stroh, who publicly aired the alleged dirty laundry of the former “Voice” coach in a viral TikTok video that has now been viewed more than 15 million times.

“In some cases it became inappropriate. I have addressed that and taken proactive steps to remedy this with my family.”

Levine has been married to Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo since 2014, with whom he shares two young daughters, Dusty Rose and Gio Grace. The couple is currently expecting their third child, who, according to Stroh, wanted to name her after her.

In her video, Stroh said she felt “completely manipulated” and “exploited” by their alleged relationship at the time, given Levine’s level of fame and power within the industry.

“I had an affair with a man who is married to a Victoria’s Secret model. At that time I was young, I was naive,” she said.

“Ashamed to be involved in this total lack of regret and respect,” she captioned her video.

Stroh insisted she “never wanted to come forward” about the alleged affair, but chose to post the TikTok after a friend threatened to make the story public.

In a subsequent video shared later on Monday, the influencer claimed she harbored Levine’s alleged advances because she was under the impression that his marriage to Prinsloo was over.

“I believed they kept it quiet to avoid the negative press,” she said, before apologizing directly to the Victoria’s Secret model. “I realize very well that I am not a victim in this. I’m not the one really getting hurt here. It’s Behati and her kids and I’m so sorry.”
