Adam Levine has landed himself right in the center of a cheating scandal after an Instagram model named Sumner Stroh claimed she had an affair with the Maroon 5 singer.
It all started on Monday 19 September, when 23-year-old model Sumner Stroh says that she had an affair with Levine in a video posted to TikTok.
“I was having an affair with a man who’s married to a Victoria’s Secret model,” she began in the clip. “At the time, I was young, I was naive, and, I mean, quite frankly, I feel exploited.”

Stroh told Page Six that the alleged affair took place “last year” when she “graduated college in 2021.”
The model also claimed she and Levine had a “physical” relationship, but she hasn’t “spoken to him in months”.
When she finally stopped responding to his messages, Levine sent a message to her again this past June – months before he and his wife Behati Prinsloo announced they were expecting their third child together.
“OK serious question,” his alleged DM to Stroh began. “I’m having another baby and if it’s w [sic] boy I really wanna name it Sumner. You ok with that? DEAD serious.”
Maroon 5’s Adam Levine, the singer took to social media on Sept. 20, breaking his silence for the first time on the subject.
“A lot is being said about me right now and I want to clear the air. I used poor judgment in speaking with anyone other than my wife in ANY kind of flirtatious manner,” Levine posted on his Instagram stories.
“I did not have an affair, nevertheless, I crossed the line during a regrettable period in my life. In certain instances it became inappropriate; I have addressed that and taken proactive steps to remedy this with my family,” he continued.
Stroh’s TikTok video has garnered more than 15 million views. In the video, she claimed she and Levine had had an affair.
