Serious accusations are being thrown at Adam Levine.
The Maroon 5 frontman was accused of having an affair with Instagram model Sumner Stroh after she shot a TikTok video on September 19.
Stroh, 23, claimed that she and Levine, 43, had a rendezvous for almost a year. They stopped talking for a few months, and then, on June 1, Levine slipped back into Stroh’s DMs with a question: He wanted to know if she’d think it was cool if he named his future baby after her — but only if it was a boy. .
The rumors of cheating come four days after Levine’s wife, Victoria’s Secret model Benhati Prinsloo, confirmed her pregnancy via Instagram. The couple, who have been married since 2014, share two children: Gio Grace (4) and Dusty Rose (5).
pleasemynews reached out to Prinsloo and Levine for comment on Stroh’s accusations, but didn’t hear back immediately.
“Essentially I was having an affair with a man who is married to a Victoria’s Secret model,” Stroh said. “At that time, you know, I was young, I was naive. I mean, honestly, I feel exploited. I wasn’t in the scene like I am now, so I was definitely very easy to manipulate.”
“Maroon 5 is practically elevator music right now, so I’m sure you know who Adam Levine is. But Adam and I dated for about a year,” she continued. “After I stopped talking to him for months, he came right back into my life.”
Stroh shared a screenshot of her home screen on June 1. It contained two messages that appeared to be from Levine’s verified Instagram account.
She read them on TikTok:
“He said: Ok serious question. I’m having another baby and if it’s a boy I really want to name him Sumner. Do you think that’s okay? Dead serious.”
Stroh couldn’t believe Levine wanted to use her name for his future baby.
“It was like being in hell. Like, I must be in hell right now,” she said. “I was completely manipulated. I wanted to handle this privately. I never wanted to come forward.”
Stroh intended to keep the rumored affair to herself, but she said she was forced to “come forward” because a friend tried to sell the story to the tabloids.
“Of course I know the implications that come from doing what I do. Making money like I do and being an Instagram model,” she said. “So being tied to a story like this…I know stereotypes.”
“I had recklessly sent screenshots to friends I thought I trusted and tried to sell one of them to a tabloid, so here I am,” she added.
Twitter was buzzing after Stroh’s TikTok went viral.
Many argued that it was bad enough that Levine was allegedly having an affair, but wanting to name his baby after his mistress was unfathomable.
“Not only was Adam Levine having an affair, but he was trying to name the baby he is having with his WIFE after the MASTRESS??? hell is too nice for this man,” a top commentary said.
“I’m not surprised Adam Levine was having an affair, but why the hell would you name your baby after the girl you had an affair with?” wrote.
“Adam Levine wants to name his baby after the woman he cheated on” allegations are wild. also wild? why did he send a emoji 3 minutes after sending the most insane message I’ve ever seen in my life,” reads another popular answer.
