It started off with one girl coming forward about her affair with Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, but now there’s accusations that Levine was having multiple inappropriate relationships. 

I’m sure by now everybody has seen the infamous cheating scandal between Levine and Sumner Stroh. In case you haven’t, it started with Instagram model Sumner Stroh posting a tiktok admitting to engaging in an affair with Levine. She then followed it up by showing screenshots of messages between herself and Levine, in which Levine is commenting on her beauty and her body.

In the TikTok made by Stroh, she also claims that Levine influenced her into a year-long relationship with him. “At the time, I was young, I was naive… I was very easily manipulated,” the Instagram model said in the TikTok. She adds that she never planned on coming forward with her story. This was until one of her friends sent screenshots of their DMs threatening to sell them, and so she thought she should be the one to come out.

Even with all the proof Stroh displayed in her TikTok, Levine denies the allegations of the affair and said “I used poor judgment in speaking with anyone other than my wife in ANY kind of flirtatious manner, I crossed the line during a regrettable period of my life. In certain instances it became inappropriate.”

Amid the drama, two more girls came out claiming Levine sent them flirty messages. The musician allegedly said, “I shouldn’t be talking to you, you know [that] right ?” in a screenshot shared by one woman in a since-deleted TikTok video. She claims that there is more evidence, but she didn’t feel comfortable posting their conversations. She goes on to say that, “if any other girls have experienced this with him … I just think they should post it ’cause I feel really bad for his wife, and nobody deserves this.”

Levine and his wife Behati Prinsloo have been married since 2014 and they have 2 kids together: Dusty, 5, and Gio, 4. Right before Stroh’s video went viral, the couple announced they were expecting a third baby. Stroh claimed that after her prior relationship ended, Levine reached out to her and asked her if she would be okay with him naming the third baby after her.  “‘You OK with that? Dead serious.'” Levine had said to Stroh.

So far, Levine’s wife has not come forward about her feelings towards the situation and how she’s dealing with it. After Stroh posted the first TikTok that went viral, she issued a public apology to Prinsloo, saying that, “I fully realize I’m not the victim in this. I’m not the one who’s really getting hurt here. It’s Behati and her children, and for that, I’m so, so sorry,”

Meanwhile, a third woman uploaded screenshots of her conversations with Levine via her Instagram story. 

Even Levine’s previous yoga teacher came forward to say that she got unsolicited flirty messages from the musician in the past. In the same month, fitness model Ashley Russell alleged that Levine reached out to her on Instagram.

Despite all the accusations, attacks, and claims made about Levine, he and Prinsloo were seen in happy spirits while picking up their kids from school. This was the first sighting of them together since Stroh’s TikTok.  

Are more girls going to come out of the shadows and share their story about Levine? What’s going to happen to Levine’s family? How does Prinsloo feel about this? Nobody knows the answer to those questions yet, but hopefully we will soon.
