Singer Adam Levine has issued a statement clarifying that he has never had an extramarital affair but is “crossing a line” at a “regrettable stage of his life”. The statement comes a day after Instagram model Sumner Stroh accused the Maroon 5 singer of having an affair with her. Adam is married to supermodel Behati Prinsloo and together they have two children and are expecting their third child.
Sumner uploaded a Tik Tok video where she shared screenshots of her private messages purportedly from Adam. The Instagram model claimed they were having an affair for a year before Adam stopped talking to her and then suddenly texted her: “Ok serious question I’m having another child and if this [a] boy, I really want to call it Sumner. Are you ok with that? DEAD serious.”
Adam took to Instagram on Tuesday night and uploaded the story. In it, he wrote: “A lot is being said about me right now and I want to clear the air. I used poor judgment to talk to anyone other than my wife in ANY kind of flirty way. I wasn’t having an affair though I crossed the line at a regrettable time in my life. In certain instances it became inappropriate, I have addressed that and taken proactive steps to remedy this with my family.”
The singer also called himself stupid for the actions he took. The statement further read: “My wife and family are all I care about in this world. Being so naive and stupid enough to risk the only thing that really matters to me was the biggest mistake I could ever make . I’ll never do it again. I take full responsibility. We’ll get through it. And we’ll get through it together.”
Sumner had also uploaded a TikTok video apologizing to Behati. She said in the video: “I’m not the one getting hurt in this. Behati and her kids are. And I’m so, so sorry.” Behati and Adam got married in 2014 and have two daughters and are expecting their third child. She also appeared in the video of Adam’s famous song Girl Like You.
