The son of Republican Senate nominee Herschel Walker, Christian Walker has never shied away from discussing his family’s affairs online, and this time Walker has weighed in on the Adam Levine fraud controversy.
On Monday, a model named Sumner Stroh posted on TikTok that she’d been involved in an affair with the lead singer of Maroon 5 for a year, causing considerable internet shock. In her video, she admitted she was “lightly manipulated” by Levine, who is married to Behati Prinsloo, with whom he has two children and another is on the way. The video drew significant backlash online, with many arguing that Stroh must take responsibility for her actions, including Walker.
In a TikTok he also posted on Twittercommented on Walker Stroh’s claim that she was manipulated by the Maroon 5 frontman.
“As someone who comes from a broken home, you’re not a victim if you’re sleeping with a married man,” Walker said. “The only victims in affairs are the faithful partner and children, if children are involved.”
Walker’s personal claim most likely stems from his own family drama involving his father, who has several other children with another woman, which was revealed earlier this year.
“We’ve become this weird generation that’s screaming ‘I poor’ on the internet and expecting to get all this support while at the same time taking absolutely no responsibility for our actions,” Walker continued in the video. “Sleeping with a married person, let alone a celebrity who can be verified as married or not, is a choice.
“A married person who sleeps with someone outside of their marriage is not a good person, but that’s no excuse for participating in their bad behavior,” he said. “Everyone makes mistakes, everyone can change, but don’t you dare victimize yourself if you willingly sleep with a married man who has a family, who has a wife at home and who has children.
“And salutes to any person who comes out of a broken home, any child who has a parent who had an affair, or any person whose spouse had an affair. It’s the worst pain in the world and you don’t have to feel sorry for people who willingly chose to put themselves in this position,” Walker concluded.
While Levine on Tuesday denied having an affair with Stroh, he admitted he “used poor judgment” and “crossed a line at an unfortunate time in my life.” Stroh has otherwise stood by her claim, posting another TikTok on Monday acknowledging that she wasn’t a victim in the situation.
“In retrospect, I wish I had questioned things more. I wish I hadn’t been so naive, but naivety is no excuse for what I did and the role I played in it,” Stroh said in the second video. “Again, I was in no way trying to gain sympathy and I fully understand that I am not the victim. I’m not the one who’s really getting hurt here, it’s Behati and her kids, and for that I have, ‘I’m so, so sorry.’
