Some serious allegations are thrown at Adam Levine.
The Maroon 5 frontman has been accused of having an affair with Instagram model Sumner Stroh after she made a TikTok video on September 19.
Stroh, 23, claimed she and Levine, 43, had been dating for almost a year. They stopped talking for a few months, and then on June 1, Levine slipped back into Stroh’s DMs with a question: He wanted to know if she’d think it would be cool if he named his future baby after her — but only if it were a boy .
The cheating rumors come four days after Levine’s wife, Victoria’s Secret model Benhati Prinsloo, confirmed her pregnancy via Instagram. The couple, who have been married since 2014, have two children together: Gio Grace, 4, and Dusty Rose, 5.
Heavy reached out to Prinsloo and Levine for comment on Stroh’s allegations, but did not immediately hear a reply.
“Basically, I was having an affair with a man who is married to a Victoria’s Secret model,” Stroh said. “You know, back then I was young and naive. I mean, honestly, I feel taken advantage of. I wasn’t in the scene like I am now, so I was definitely very easily manipulated.”
“Maroon 5 is practically elevator music at this point, so I’m sure you know who Adam Levine is. But Adam and I dated for about a year,” she continued. “After I stopped speaking to him for a period of months, that’s how he came back into my life.”
Stroh shared a screenshot of her home screen on June 1st. He showed two messages that appeared to be from Levine’s verified Instagram account.
She read them on TikTok:
“He said ok, serious question. I’m having another baby and if it’s a boy I really want to name him Sumner. Do you agree? dead serious.”
Straw couldn’t believe Levine would want to use her name for his future baby.
“I was like hell. I must be in hell at this point,” she said. “I was completely manipulated. I wanted to settle this privately. I never wanted to come forward.”
Stroh had planned to keep the rumored affair to herself, but said she was forced to come forward because a friend tried to sell the story to the tabloids.
“Obviously I know the implications of doing what I do. Make money like I do and be an Instagram model,” she said. “So being tied to a story like this…I know clichés.”
“I had recklessly sent screenshots to friends I trusted and one of them had tried to sell to a tabloid, so here I am,” she added.
Twitter was in a frenzy after Stroh’s TikTok went viral.
Many argued that it was bad enough that Levine was allegedly having an affair, but wanting to name his baby after his beloved was unfathomable.
“Adam Levine not only had an affair, but he tried to name the baby he is having with his WIFE after MISTRESS??? Hell is too kind for this man,” a top comment said.
“I’m not surprised Adam Levine was having an affair but why the hell would you name your baby after the girl you were having an affair with,” another wrote.
“The allegations that “Adam Levine wants to name his baby after the woman he cheated with” are wild. also wild? why did he send a Emoji 3 minutes after sending the craziest message I’ve ever seen in my life,” reads another popular Answer.
