Adam Levine Denies Affair with Instagram Model, but Sumner Stroh Brought Receipts

Trouble's brewing in the perfect marriage between Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine and Victoria's Secret model Behati Prinsloo.
Just days ago, the couple announced that they were expecting baby #3 – and all seemed sweet and wonderful. Enter: Sumner Stroh.
An Instagram model, Stroh took to TikTok to "rip the band-aid off" and tell the truth she feels needs to get out there, before someone else told her story for her.
Sumner Stroh Brought Receipts

Stroh said in a video on TikTok that she didn't want to talk about what happened, but that she made the mistake of trusting someone with information they tried to sell to tabloids.
So, Stroh explained, she's getting the truth out there before someone else comes up with a half-truth that makes things even messier.
And the truth? Stroh says that she and Levine had a year-long affair that eventually fizzled out. Stroh says she felt exploited because she was new to the industry, howver she was willing to let it lie in the past. But months after it ended, Levine got in touch – and for a really, really weird reason.
Stroh shared screenshots of Levine messaging her, "Ok serious question. I’m having another baby and if it’s [a] boy I really wanna name it Sumner. You ok with that? DEAD serious."
So – he wants to name his wife's baby after his former mistress? That's not weird at all.
Adam Levine says ‘No Affair’ but He Did ‘Cross the Line’
Levine for his part denies that anything shady happened. He says sure – I crossed some lines, but there was no affair.
TMZ reports, "Adam tells TMZ, 'I used poor judgment in speaking with anyone other than my wife in ANY kind of flirtatious manner. I did not have an affair, nevertheless, I crossed the line during a regrettable period of my life.'
He goes on … 'In certain instances it became inappropriate. I have addressed that and taken proactive steps to remedy this with my family.'
And he says … 'My wife and my family is all I care about in this world. To be this naive and stupid enough to risk the only thing that truly matters to me was the greatest mistake I could ever make. I will never make it again. I take full responsibility. We will get through it and we will get through it together.'"
It all sounds well and good, if not for the fact that Stroh has receipts. Feeling exploited and frustrated, and as though her dignity and morals were pushed beyond their breaking point, Stroh now has to decide whether or not it's worth risking her career to stand up for the truth.

Because Levine may not call it an affair, but clearly some serious impropriety went down – and Stroh may have even more receipts we haven't seen yet. Stroh explains in a follow-up video on TikTok that she believed that Levine and Prinsloo's marriage was over when the affair began. "He knew that I believed everything that he said," Stroh says.
Stroh has yet to respond to Levine's denial, but does explain in the follow-up video that they DM'd on Instagram, so there are likely more screenshots to come.
