Model Sumner Stroh claims she had an affair with Adam Levine

An Instagram model went viral on TikTok Monday after accusing Adam Levine of having an affair with her.

The woman, Sumner Stroh, did not identify the adulterous party at first, only calling him a “man married to a Victoria’s Secret model.”

The 43-year-old frontman of Maroon 5 has been married to former Victoria’s Secret Angel Behati Prinsloo since 2014.

“At the time, I was young, naive and, frankly, I feel exploited,” Stroh, 23, said in the video, without going into detail when the alleged affair took place.

“I wasn’t in ‘the scene’ like I am now, so I was definitely very easy to manipulate.”

However, Stroh told Page Six exclusively that the alleged affair took place “last year” when she “graduated from college in 2021.”

When asked whether the alleged affair was sexual or just emotional cheating, the model claimed she and Levine were in a “physical” relationship.

“I haven’t spoken to him in months,” she also remarked to us.

In the viral video, Stroh revealed Levine as her lover by posting alleged screenshots of direct messages the rocker allegedly sent her.

“Maroon 5 is basically elevator music right now, so I’m sure you know who Adam Levine is,” she told her followers, taking a small punch to his band.

The messages, which appeared on a green screen behind her, claimed Levine had told her, “It’s just unreal how damn hot you are. Like it’s driving me crazy.”

Stroh then seemed to respond: “I mean, I think the same. When I saw you in person, I was like… I’m f–ked.”

Another message reportedly sent by the “She Will Be Loved” singer then said, “You’re 50 times hotter personally. And so am I hahahah.”

Stroh claimed she and Levine dated for “about a year,” but he came back into her life months later to allegedly ask her if he would name his next child after her.

“He said, ‘Okay, serious question. I’m having another baby and if so [a] Boy, I really want to call it Sumner. Do you think that’s okay? DEAD seriously,” the model said, reading aloud the alleged DM.

Page Six got a video that appears to show that the posts were linked to Levine’s verified Instagram profile.

Levine and Prinsloo recently confirmed that they are expecting their third child. The couple already share daughters Dusty Rose, 5, and Gio Grace, 4.

Stroh said she was “in hell right now” after Levine reportedly contacted her about the namesake’s request.

“I mean, my morale was subconsciously compromised,” the brunette beauty claimed. “I was completely manipulated.”

However, the people in the comments section weren’t so convinced that Stroh was so innocent.

“It’s no secret that he’s been married for ten years. The only victims here are his wife and children,” one user wrote.

Another commented: ‘The word for what you feel is guilt. You weren’t the victim here.’

Stroh said in the video that she “wanted to handle this privately” and “never come forward,” but claimed she had been blackmailed by a friend who threatened to sell the story to a tabloid.

“Of course I know the implications of doing what I do, making money the way I do and being an Instagram model, so being tied to a story like this — I know the stereotypes,” she added.

“I had recklessly sent some screenshots to some friends [who] I thought I trusted, and one of them had tried to sell to a tabloid, so here I am.’

Representatives of Levine and Prinsloo did not immediately respond to Page Six’s multiple requests for comment.
