Instagram model Sumner Stroh says she had a year-long affair with Adam Levine, and she alleges that he wants to name his next baby after her. Stroh, a 23-year-old University of Texas graduate, posted a TikTok video on Monday detailing her alleged affair. Levine, who’s 20 years older than Stroh, has been married to Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo since 2014, and the alleged affair with Stroh occurred during their marriage. Stroh’s allegations come only three days after Prinsloo confirmed her third pregnancy with Levine by posting a photo of her baby bump on Instagram.
… At the time of the alleged fair, Stroh was “young and naive,” she says on TikTok. Looking back on it, she now feels “exploited” by the Maroon 5 singer. She adds that she wasn’t as influential of a model at the time and was easily manipulated.
… In her video, Stroh shares alleged screenshots of Instagram messages between herself and Levine. After about a year of seeing him, Stroh stopped talking to Levine. But on June 1 of this year, the singer came “back into [her] life” by messaging her on Instagram again. A screenshot shows an alleged message from Levine: “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.’
… The model says she didn’t initially want to out the singer and their affair because she “knows the implications” of her career and how it would look if she revealed the truth. She says she “recklessly” sent some screenshots of her messages with Levine to her friends, and one of them attempted to sell them to a tabloid. This led Stroh to come forward with her allegations, she claims.
