Adam Levine has addressed recent allegations that he cheated on his wife Behati Prinsloo, claiming he “didn’t have an affair” but “crossed the line”.
The Maroon 5 frontman, 43, who is currently expecting his third child with his eight-year-old wife, responded to the allegations shared by model Sumner Stroh on TikTok on Monday.
In an Instagram post on Tuesday, he wrote: “There’s been a lot of talk about me right now and I want to take a look. 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.”
He went on to say that “in certain instances it became inappropriate” and that he “addressed that” and “took proactive steps to rectify it.” [his] Family”.
“My wife and family are all I care about in this world,” he continued. “Being naïve and stupid enough to risk the only thing that really matters to me was the biggest mistake I could ever make. I’ll never make it again I take full responsibility.”
Levine ended his post, assuring his fans and followers that he and his family would get through the rumors “together.”
“We’ll get through this. And we will get through it together,” he wrote.
Levine’s testimony comes after Stroh, a 23-year-old model, made the allegations in a TikTok video on Monday.
In her video, Stroh said, “I had an affair with a man who is married to a Victoria’s Secret model,” before claiming, “I was young at the time, I was naive, and I mean, quite frankly, I was taken advantage of feel.”

Stroh, who said the relationship lasted about a year, also shared screenshots of Instagram messages she claimed were sent by the Maroon 5 singer from his verified Instagram account, in which he told her: ” It’s really unreal how damn hot you are. Like it blows my mind.”
In the video, Stroh also included a screenshot of a message she allegedly received from the singer after the couple ended their relationship. The picture appeared to show Levine asking if he could name his unborn child after her.
“Okay serious question. I’m having another baby and if it’s a boy I really want to name him Sumner. Do you agree? DEATH serious,” Levine reportedly wrote, along with a single shrug emoji.
The model claims she decided to speak up about the experience after the alleged affair was reportedly leaked to the tabloids by “friends I trusted.”
In a follow-up video shared later that same day, Stroh said she originally wanted to talk about the relationship while acknowledging how “disgusted, embarrassed and remorseful” she felt, but didn’t want people to think that she “plays that”. Victim”.
Stroh also repeated her allegation about a friend trying to “sell” the story to a tabloid, an attempt she said she learned about on Sunday when the outlet contacted her for comment.
“So I was totally desperate,” she said.
In the second video, Stroh also said she “had the impression” that Levine and Prinsloo’s marriage was “over.”
“I figured they kept it a secret to avoid the negative press because, like I said, I was new to LA. So with celebrities of that caliber, I just assumed that’s just the way it is,” she continued. “And that’s why I feel taken advantage of because he knew I believed everything he said because of my vulnerable position of being new to LA.”
Stroh also claimed that because Levine reportedly messaged her from his verified Instagram account, she “had no reason to further challenge his alleged claims about the status of his marriage.”
She went on to claim that she wished she had “questioned things more,” before noting, “Being naïve is no excuse for what I did and the part I played in it.”
The 23-year-old ended the video telling her followers that she was “so, so sorry” for Prinsloo and her children.
Levine has been married to the Victoria’s Secret model since 2014. The couple share two daughters, ages four and five, and announced earlier this month that they are expecting their third child.
