A model made bombshell claims about Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine in a recent viral TikTok. Sumner Stroh claimed she had a year-long relationship with the singer, who has been married to the Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo for years.

She said the affair happened when she was young and “quite frankly, I feel exploited” as she was not as established of a model as she currently is. Stroh didn’t provide a precise timeline of the affair other than saying their relationship lasted “about a year.”

Prinsloo is pregnant with their third child as of summer 2022, and Stroh ended the video showing a message allegedly from Levine asking if he could name his baby Sumner if it was a boy, and he was “DEAD serious.” The screenshot shows the date as June 1, and she said she hadn’t been talking to Levine “over a period of months.”

After getting the message about the baby name, Stroh joked, “I have to be in Hell at this point.”

She referred to Levine as having an “utter lack of remorse and respect,” and there definitely could be a power imbalance at work between a massive music star and a model starting her career.

Some of the Instagram DM’s shown in the video show Levine saying, “It is truly unreal how f––king hot you are, like it blows my mind.”

There was also another that showed they may have had several in-person encounters as he had written, “You are 50 times hotter in person.”

Stroh also explained in the video that she hadn’t wanted to come forward with the story, but she wanted to get ahead of tabloids posting her screenshots of interactions with Levine she had “recklessly” sent out to others who then attempted to sell them.

“Obviously, I know the implications that come with doing what I do, making money the way I do, being an Instagram model,” Stroh also added. “So being tied to a story like this, I know the stereotypes.”

She also filmed a follow-up TikTok where she later said the video was “all over the place,” and she was frantically recording it to get ahead of the press.

Stroh claimed she had the affair because she was “under the impression that their marriage was over,” and that Prinsloo and Levine were being private about the situation.

Stroh also discussed her judgement being clouded because she was “new to L.A.” and said that Levine’s tactic of messaging her through his public Instagram was likely manipulation.

She claimed that she cut the relationship off when she learned he was still married, and “in retrospect, I wish I would have questioned things more.”
