Adam Levine, frontman of Maroon 5, denies allegations of an affair as he and wife Behati Prinsloo await their third child.
Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine took to Instagram stories on Tuesday, September 21, after an Instagram model claimed that she had an affair with him. Adam and his wife, former Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo, are currently waiting for the arrival of their third child.
In the statement, the “She Will Be Loved” crooner posted that he’s aware of the things that have been said about him in the last few hours.
“I used poor judgment in speaking with anyone other than my wife in ANY kind of flirtatious manner,” he wrote. “I did not have an affair, nevertheless, I crossed the line during a regrettable period of my life.”
“In certain instances, it became inappropriate. I have addressed that and taken proactive steps to remedy this with my family.”
Adam Levine: I take full responsibility
The “Moves Like Jagger” singer said that what matters right now is his wife and family. “To be naive and stupid enough to risk the only thing that truly matters to me was the greatest mistake I could ever make.”
“I will never make it again. I take full responsibility. We will get through it. And we will get through it together.”
Behati has yet to speak up on the issue. However, those close to the couple told People that while the Namibian model is upset, she’s “100% committed to her family.”
The cheating allegation
On Monday, September 19, Adam found himself trending on social media when an Instagram model, Sumner Stroh, claimed that she had a year-long affair with the singer. In a Tiktok video, she didn’t name names but it was clear she was referring to Adam and Behati.
“I was having an affair with a man who’s married to a Victoria’s Secret model. At that time, I was young, I was naive, and I mean, quite frankly, I [felt] exploited,” Sumner said.
Sumner also clarified in a separate TikTok video that’s not out to win sympathy and that she was not the victim but that of Behati and her children.
Adam and Behati have been married since 2014. The couple has two daughters – Dusty Rose, 5, and Gio Grace, 4.
