In a video that's now gone viral on TikTok, model Sumner Stroh made claims that she had an affair with Maroon 5's Adam Levine for about a year. The model also showed screenshots of their messages showing that after they stopped talking, Levine reached out to ask if he could name his baby after her.
“I was having an affair with a man who’s married to a Victoria’s Secret model. At the time, I was young, I was naive, and, I mean, quite frankly, I feel exploited,” Stroh said in the video.
Levine has been married to former Victoria Secret model Behati Prinsloo since 2014. Together they have two children who are 4 and 5. The couple announced earlier this month that they were expecting their third child.

On Tuesday (September 20), the Maroon 5 frontman hit back at speculation that he had an extended affair with an Instagram model after she posted a video on social media claiming the pair were together before breaking it off earlier this year.
"I used poor judgment in speaking with anyone other than my wife in ANY kind of flirtatious manner," he told TMZ, before shutting down the rumor that he cheated on his wife. "I did not have an affair, nevertheless, I crossed the line during a regrettable period of my life."
Levine went on to say he is taking the steps to address the "inappropriate" behavior with his family, including wife Behati Prinsloo, who recently announced that she and Levine were expecting their third child.
"In certain instances it became inappropriate. I have addressed that and taken proactive steps to remedy this with my family," he said, adding, "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."
