Influencer claims she had an affair with Adam Levine in messy story that gets worse


An Instagram model claims she had an affair with Maroon 5’s Adam Levine and that after they stopped talking, he wrote to ask if he could name his baby after her.

Sumner Stroh, who has just under 350,000 Instagram followers, made the allegations in a TikTok video posted Monday. She claims she’s been seeing the married singer for about a year, but hasn’t made it clear when. Levine’s wife is Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo.

“I had an affair with a man who is married to a Victoria’s Secret model. At the time, I was young, naive and, frankly, I feel exploited,” Stroh said in the video.

In her TikTok video, Stroh shared a screenshot of an Instagram DM that Levine allegedly sent her “after I stopped talking to him for months.” The message reads: “Okay, serious question. I’m having another baby and if so [a] Boy, I really want to call it Sumner. Do you think that’s okay? Dead serious.”

She also showed screenshots of flirty Instagram DM exchanges with what appeared to be Levine’s account.

Stroh claimed she never intended to share the story publicly, but came forward because she sent the screenshot to some friends and one of them tried to sell the story to a tabloid magazine.

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

A Levine representative did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Stroh’s video was viewed 7.5 million times in the 10 hours after she posted it. She later posted a second video responding to critics, saying she wasn’t trying to play the victim.

“I wasn’t trying to get sympathy in any way,” she said. “And I realize very well that I am not a victim of this. I’m not the one really getting hurt here. It’s Behati and her kids, and I’m so sorry.”

“The most important thing that I absolutely covered up is the fact that I had the impression that their marriage was over. I believed they kept it quiet to avoid the negative press because, like I said, I was new to LA, so I just assumed that with celebrities of that caliber, that’s just how it is,” she said.

“And that’s why I feel exploited because he knew I believed everything he said because of my vulnerable position of being new to LA,” she said. Plus, he was DMing me directly from his verified Instagram account. I had no reason to doubt it further. But I realize now that that was probably a manipulation tactic on his part, you know, just hidden in the sight.
