“Cheating people. I cheated. And you know what? There’s nothing worse than the feeling of doing it,” Adam Levine said in a 2009 interview

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Adam Levine previously admitted to being unfaithful before model Sumner Straw opened up about their alleged affair.

The 43-year-old singer-songwriter admitted he had been cheating for the past few years, before the Instagram model claimed she had an affair with him when he was married to supermodel Behati Prinsloo. The Maroon 5 crooner shared his stance on monogamy in a 2009 interview with Cosmopolitan. “Instinctively, monogamy is not in our genetic makeup,” he said at the time. “Cheating people. I cheated. And you know what? There’s nothing worse than the feeling of doing it.”


While the California native didn’t mention a specific partner, he had been dating his high school sweetheart, Jane Herman, and cocktail waitress Rebecca Ginos in the years leading up to the interview. Levine sparked romance rumors with Prinsloo in 2012, and the pair tied the knot in Mexico two years later. In the aforementioned interview, Levine described himself as “emotionally confused” and said his “ability to detach from things” was both his best and his “worst quality.” He added: “I’ve let myself off the hook to the point where it’s a bad thing. People are hard on themselves. I’m not.”

The ‘Girls Like You’ hitmaker’s comments resurfaced shortly after Stroh, 23, posted a now-viral TikTok page claiming she had been dating him for several years. “I was having an affair with a man who is married to a Victoria’s Secret model,” she claimed in a video shared on September 19, referring to 34-year-old Prinsloo. “I was young then, I was naive. I was very easily manipulated.” Stroh apologized directly to Prinsloo in a subsequent post. “I realize I’m not the victim. I’m not the one really getting hurt here. It’s Behati and her kids and I’m so, so sorry about that,” the social media influencer said.

While Prinsloo has not commented on the controversy, Levine vehemently denied cheating on his wife, who is now pregnant with their third child. “I have used poor judgment to engage in ANY form of flirting with anyone other than my wife,” the singer wrote on his Instagram Stories on Tuesday, Sept. 20. “I didn’t have an affair, but I crossed the line of regrettable time of my life. In certain cases it became inappropriate. I have addressed this and taken proactive steps to resolve this with my family.” He added, “My wife and family are all I care about in this world. Being naïve and stupid enough to risk the only thing that really matters to me was the biggest mistake I could ever make. I’ll never make it again I take full responsibility. We will get through it and we will get through it together.”

However, the couple appeared to form a united front amid the backlash when they were seen picking up their daughters Dusty Rose, 5, and Gio Grace, 4, from school in California on Tuesday. Photos provided to the Daily Mail showed the duo smiling despite the drama that surrounded them.

Several other women have followed in Stroh’s footsteps with their own allegations. A TikTok user shared screenshots of alleged DMs from Levine, who apparently told her in an exchange: “I shouldn’t be talking to you, you know [that] right 😤?” While the videos have since been removed, the user claimed in a post that she has “many more” DMs that she doesn’t want to share publicly. Another woman named Maryka shared screenshots of her alleged conversations with Levine on Tuesday. In an exchange, she asked if the musician was married, to which he reportedly replied, “Yes, but it’s complicated,” according to US Weekly.
