“Ashamed I was involved with a man with[ith] this total lack of regret and respect,” she wrote on TikTok.
The bomb allegations come just days after Levine’s wife Prinsloo confirmed the couple were expecting their third child. Levine, 43, and the 34-year-old Namibian model have been married since 2014.
Stroh claims she and Levine saw each other for about a year and shared messages from the music star that read: “It’s unreal how damn hot you are. Like it surprises me. You are personally 50 times hotter.”
But she says the two lost touch — until an alleged DM from Levine in June, in which he informs Stroh that he’s having another baby — and asks if she’s okay with him naming the child after her.
“Okay, serious question. I’m having another baby and if it w . is [sic] Boy, I really want to call it Sumner. Do you think that’s okay? DEAD seriously,” it reads.
Stroh claims that Levine sent the DM back in June, after a long period of silence between the pair.
In her TikTok, Stroh talks about “having an affair with a man who is married to a Victoria’s Secret model”. She says of the alleged affair: “I was young, I was naive. And I mean, frankly, I feel exploited. I wasn’t in the scene as I am now. So I was definitely very easy to manipulate.”
“Maroon 5 is practically elevator music right now,” she continued. “So I’m sure you know who Adam Levine is. Adam and I saw each other for about a year; after not speaking to him for a period of months, he came right back into my life.”
Stroh also explained her rationale for going public, saying that the story would come out anyway after she “recklessly sent some screenshots to some friends I thought I trusted, and tried to sell one of them to a tabloid – so here I am.”
Levine has not yet publicly commented on the allegations. He and his wife Prinsloo are parents to daughters Dusty Rose, 5, and Gio Grace, 4, and the African-born beauty has talked about their desire to start a big family in recent years.
“We always knew we wanted a second one. So I think for me in those two years, when I had two babies under two, I thought, ‘Don’t even think about it!’ But I also want five kids, but don’t even think about it,” she told Entertainment tonight last year.
