Adam Levine denies having an affair with model Sumner Stroh, but admits he “crossed the line”.
“I used poor judgment to talk to anyone other than my wife in ANY flirty way,” the Maroon 5 frontman said in a statement posted Tuesday via his Instagram story.
“I have not had an affair, yet I have crossed the line during a regrettable period of my life.”
Levine, 43, said his interactions became “inappropriate” in certain cases.
He added, “I’ve addressed that and taken proactive steps to address this with my family.”
Levine has been married to Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo since 2014.
The two share daughters Dusty Rose, 5, and Gio Grace, 4, and have a third baby on the way. Earlier this month, they confirmed they were expecting again.
The “She Will Be Loved” singer concluded by saying, “My wife and my family is all I care about in this world.
“To be so naive and stupid enough to risk the only thing that really matters to me was the biggest mistake I could ever make. I will never make it again. I take full responsibility. We will get through it and together we will get through it.”
Stroh, 23, went viral on TikTok Monday after she claimed she had been “manipulated” by a married man. She later released direct messages that Levine allegedly sent her via Instagram.
The Instagram model also exclusively told Vidak For Congress that the alleged affair took place “last year” when she “graduated from college in 2021.”
When asked whether the alleged affair was sexual or just emotional cheating, the model claimed she and Levine were in a “physical” relationship.
“I haven’t spoken to him in months,” she also remarked to us.
Stroh said in her video that Levine would reportedly contact her at some point to ask if he could name his next child after her.
The brunette beauty said in the clip that she was “in hell by this point” after Levine reportedly contacted her about the namesake’s request.
“I mean, my morale was subconsciously compromised,” she claimed. “I was completely manipulated.”
Stroh then apologized to Prinsloo, 34, in a separate TikTok video, stating that she “completely realizes”[s]she is “not the victim” in the situation.
“I’m not the one who gets hurt by this. It’s Behati and her kids,” the model added. “And for that, I’m so, so sorry.”
