Adam Levine Denies Having an Affair but Admits He ‘Crossed the Line’ After Cheating Accusations
The Maroon 5 frontman, 43, posted to Instagram on Tuesday morning: “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. I did not have an affair, nevertheless, I crossed the line during a regrettable period in my life.”
Levine continued: “In certain instances it became inappropriate; I have addressed that and taken proactive steps to remedy this with my family. 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.”
The statement comes in response to a viral TikTok video shared by Instagram model Sumner Stroh in which she claimed to have had a year-long affair with Levine.
Sumner Stroh did not provide dates as to when the alleged relationship took place, but shared screenshots of apparent Instagram DMs from the musician, including a note from April after she claimed they’d stopped speaking.
Sumner Stroh claimed she had wanted to “handle this privately,” but felt forced to share the story on TikTok after a friend allegedly tried to sell the screenshots to a tabloid.
“We’re best friends and we have such similar interests,” the Victoria’s Secret model told The Zoe Report in April. “We try and put each other first. So we get our alone time in — but kids are crazy!”
The couple first met after a mutual friend introduced them via email, and grew their initial bond over a series of messages.
