At the beginning of this week, you could be forgiven for assuming that Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine was a loving family man.
Turns out, he’s a dog.
One Instagram model by the name of Sumner Stroh this week revealed that they had what she alleges was a 1-year affair. After everything had fizzled and the two parted ways, Stroh says Levine got in touch again – for a really weird reason.
Last week, Levine revealed that he and wife of 8 years (and Victoria’s Secret model) Behati Prinsloo are expecting baby #3 together. How does that relate to Stroh? Well, buckle up.
Levine messaged his ex-mistress to ask if he could name the new baby after her.
Yep. He wanted to name his new kid Sumner, if it’s a boy.
There was some back-and-forth, Levine denied the affair but said he acted inappropriately, the usual he-said/she-said bullshit. Stroh then tried to sell her story which is an odd move for someone who says she only revealed the truth to prevent a supposed friend from selling it to tabloids – but I digress.
Levine is playing the good family man again, saying that he messed up but trying to downplay it and saying he’s focused on his (probably furious) pregnant wife and family.
And then: enter the new girls.
More models have come forward to share messages from Levine being an absolute dog, including one to a woman named Maryka where Levine wrote, “Holy f–king f–k. The body of yours is absurd. How are you such an hourglass?” When she asked if he was married, he said, “Yeah but it’s complicated.”
Complicated? You either are or you aren’t, Levine – and you were.
Another woman has revealed more damning texts from Levine as well, although she wants her identity to stay under wraps for now. Their exchange was a little tamer, but still showed some pretty gross behavior for a married man.
While so far none of them have provided evidence of sexual intimacy, the emotional cheating is enough to paint Levine a liar for pretending like his behavior with Stroh was just a one-off series of bad choices. And it makes his side of the story a lot less reputable.
This week is three days old and three women have come forward – what will the rest of the week bring?
