Model Sumner Stroh claims to have had an affair with Adam Levine

An Instagram model is going viral on TikTok on Monday for accusing Adam Levine of having an affair with her.

The wife, Sumner Stroh, didn’t identify the cheating party at first, calling him only “a man married to a Victoria’s Secret model.”

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

“At the time, I was young, I was naive and, quite frankly, I felt taken advantage of,” Stroh, 23, said in the video, without specifying when the alleged affair took place.

“I wasn’t in ‘the scene’ like I am now, so I was definitely very easily manipulated.”

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

When asked if the alleged affair was sexual or just emotional deception, the model claimed that she and Levine had a “physical” relationship.

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

In the viral video, Stroh opened up to Levine about his lover by posting alleged screenshots of direct messages the rocker allegedly sent him.

“Maroon 5 is basically elevator music at this point, so I’m sure you know who Adam Levine is,” she told her followers, taking a slight swipe at her band.

The messages, which appeared on a green screen behind her, claimed Levine told her, “It’s really unreal how sexy you are. Like it blows my mind.

Stroh then seemed to respond, “I mean I think the same. Seeing you in person, I was like… I’m screwed.

Another message allegedly sent by the “She Will Be Loved” singer then read, “You are 50 times sexier in person. And me too hahaha.

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

Levine reportedly asked Stroh in a DM if he could name his next child after him.

“He said, ‘Okay, serious question. I’m going to have another baby and if it’s [a] boy, I really want to call him Sumner. Are you okay with that? DEAD seriously,” the model said as she read the alleged DM aloud.

Page Six obtained a video that appears to show the posts 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 at this point” after Levine allegedly contacted her about the namesake request.

“I mean, my morals were compromised without knowing it,” the brunette beauty claimed. “I was completely manipulated”

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

“It’s no secret that he’s been married for a decade. The only victim here is his wife and children,” one user wrote.

Another commented: “The word for how 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 was blackmailed by a friend who threatened to sell the story to a tabloid.

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

“I had sent screenshots to a few friends recklessly [who] I thought I was confident, and one of them tried to sell to a tabloid, uh, so here I am.

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