Instagram model Sumner Stroh has dropped a bombshell on Adam Levine, claiming to have had an affair with the married Maroon 5 frontman. She also claimed that Levine, 43, wanted to name his and wife Behati Prinsloo’s third child after her.
Levine and Prinsloo recently announced their pregnancy via a post on the Victoria’s Secret model’s Instagram. “Recent,” Prinsloo captioned the photo carousel with a fairy emoji, which saw her growing belly peeking out from under her tie-dye t-shirt. The couple, who wed in 2014, are already parents to daughters Dusty Rose, 5, and Gio Grace, 4.
In a minute-and-a-half video posted to TikTok today (September 19), Stroh, 23, said, “I’m just going to rip the bandaid off because I’ve re-taken this ten times now. Essentially, I was having an affair with a man who is married to a Victoria’s Secret model. At the time, I was young, I was naive and quite frankly I feel exploited. I wasn’t in the scene like I am now so I was definitely very easily manipulated.”
“Maroon 5 is practically elevator music at this point, so I’m sure you know who Adam Levine is,” she continued with a green screen effect showing DMs between the two of them. The alleged DMs from Adam read: “It is unreal how f—ing hot you are. Like it blows my mind,” to which she replied, “I mean I think the same. Seeing u in person I was like… I’m f—ed.” Adam then said: “You are 50 times hotter in person. And so am I… hahaha.”
“Adam and I were seeing each other for about a year,” Stroh continued. “After I stopped talking to him over a period of months, this is… how he came back into my life. He said, ‘Ok serious question. I’m having another baby and if it’s [a] boy I really wanna name it Sumner. You ok with that? DEAD serious.'”
The Instagram model looked in shock as she joked, “I’m in hell. I have to be in hell at this point.” She continued to say that she would’ve handled this privately and would not have come forward because she “obviously I know the implications that comes with doing what I do, making the money the way I do and being an Instagram model. Being tied to a story like this — I know it’s stereotypes. I had sent some screenshots recklessly to a few friends I thought I trusted and one of them had attempted to sell to a tabloid. So here I am.”

One person commented, “It’s no secret he’s been married for a decade. The only victim here is his wife and children,” while another wrote, “I think she forgot the apology somewhere.”
