Sumner Stroh appeared to blast Adam Levine after the singer broke his silence over cheating rumors.
The 23-year-old Instagram model accused the Maroon 5 frontman, 43, of a year-long affair with her in a TikTok video that has now gone viral.
“I was young at the time, I was naive and frankly I feel taken advantage of,” Stroh said in the clip posted Monday, which has since racked up more than 20 million views.
“I wasn’t ‘in the scene’ like I am now, so I was definitely very easily manipulated,” she added, while sharing screenshots of their alleged conversations.
Stroh said she had no intention of coming forward but felt compelled to tell her story after a friend she thought she trusted allegedly tried to sell the screenshots to a tabloid.
Levine has been married to Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo since 2014 after the couple met through a mutual friend in 2012.
They share two daughters, Dusty Rose, who celebrates her 6th birthday on Wednesday, and Gio Grace, 4, and Prinsloo, 34, is pregnant with their third child.
In Stroh’s initial post, she also claimed Levine reached out to her without speaking after “months” to ask her permission to name his third baby after her.
“Okay serious question. I’m having another baby and if it is one [a] Boy, I really want to call it Sumner. Do you agree? DEAD seriously,” says an alleged screenshot by Levine.
On Tuesday, Levine spoke about the allegations surrounding him in a lengthy statement posted via his Instagram story.
“I’m being talked about a lot right now and I want to clear the air,” he wrote. “I used poor judgment when speaking to anyone other than my wife for ANY type of flirtation. I didn’t have an affair, but I crossed a line at an unfortunate time in my life.”
The voice Trainer wrote: “In certain cases it became inappropriate; I have addressed this and taken proactive steps to resolve this with my family. My wife and my 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 make it. And we will make it.” it together.”
Stroh apparently responded to his statement in her own Instagram story. “Someone should get this man a dictionary,” she said.
news week has reached out to Levine’s rep for comment.
In April 2022, Prinsloo spoke about her husband in an interview with The Zoe Report. “We’re best friends and have such similar interests,” she said. “We try to put each other first. So we spend our time alone – but kids are crazy!”
In 2019, the Namibian native told Net-A-Porter’s PORTER Edit‘s magazine that their first meeting was “love at first sight.”
