Model Sumner Stroh’s Instagram followers have skyrocketed amid her DM drama with Adam Levine.
On Monday, September 19, the 23-year-old claimed in a now-viral TikTok video that the Maroon 5 rocker cheated on his pregnant wife Behati Prinsloo with her.
“Embarrassed to have been involved [with] a man with this complete lack of remorse and respect,” she captioned the clip, which has since been viewed nearly 21 million times.
She started the video by saying she wanted to “rip the bandage off” after recording her message nearly a dozen times.
“I was having an affair with a man who was married to a Victoria’s Secret model,” she began. “At the time, I was young, I was naive, and frankly, I felt taken advantage of.”
Stroh revealed the man was Levine, sharing screenshots of their alleged Instagram posts.
One read, “It’s really unreal how sexy you are. Like it blew my mind,” while another said, “You’re 50 times sexier in person.”
On Wednesday, Levine addressed the allegations and admitted he had “crossed the line”, but claimed he “did not have an affair” during this “regrettable time in my life” and claims to have “taken proactive measures” to remedy the situation with his family.
Later in the clip, Stroh claimed that Levine asked if he could name his third child after him.
“OK, serious question,” read his alleged DM. “I’m having another baby and if it’s [a] boy, I really want to call him Sumner. Are you okay with that? DEAD seriously.”
Levine and Prinsloo, 34, are currently expecting baby number three together. The couple met in 2012 through a mutual friend via email and married in 2014. The couple are already parents to Dusty Rose, whose 6th birthday is September 21, and Gio Grace, 4 years old.
After sharing her story, Sumner received backlash on TikTok and Instagram.
“Naa I don’t buy her, she plays like the victim, the only victim here is [Levine’s] wife,” one person wrote on TikTok, while another added, “I was manipulated married man called me hot please have mercy on me.”
On Instagram, a third said: ‘You knew he was married and you’re upset he had another baby on the way clown’, and a fourth replied: ‘I don’t feel bad for you because you knew sleeping with a married man then I hope you take true responsibility for your role in all of this.”
However, that hasn’t stopped his Instagram follower count from increasing. According to Social Blade, a public database that tracks social media statistics, Stroh gained 42,528 Instagram followers on Tuesday, September 20.
For comparison, she gained 582 followers on Monday, lost 34 followers on Sunday, gained 182 followers on Saturday, and only two followers on Friday.
On Tuesday, Levine took to his Instagram Story to try to clear his name over the charges against him.
“I showed poor judgment by speaking with anyone other than my wife in ANY flirtatious way,” he said.
“In some cases, it became inappropriate. I addressed that issue and took proactive steps to address it with my family,” he continued. “My wife and my family are all I care about in this world. Being naive and stupid enough to risk the only thing that really matters to me was the biggest mistake I could have made. I will never do it again. “I take full responsibility. We’ll get through this. And we’ll get through this together.”
After sharing his post, Stroh took to his own Instagram Story to seemingly slam the “Payphone” singer.
