Adam Levine has broken his silence following accusations that he cheated on his wife, Behati Prinsloo. The allegations also revealed that Levine reportedly wanted to name their child after his alleged mistress.
“A lot is being said about me right now and I want to clear the air,” the Maroon 5 frontman wrote in a statement on his Instagram stories on Tuesday.
“I used poor judgment in speaking with anyone other than my wife in ANY kind of flirtatious manner,” Levine wrote. “I did not have an affair, nevertheless, I crossed the line during a regrettable period in my life.”
“In certain instances it became inappropriate; I have addressed that and taken proactive steps to remedy this with my family,” Levine wrote in his statement.
“My wife and my family is all I care about in this world. To be this naive and stupid enough to risk the only thing that truly matters to me was the greatest mistake I could ever make,” he wrote. “I will never make it again. I take full responsibility. We will get through it. And we will get through it together.”
Model Summer Stroh previously took to social media and shared in a viral TikTok video that she and Levine dated for a year. She shared a screen recording of their shared Instagram messages that appeared to be linked to his verified Instagram account.
“At the time, I was young, I was naive and, quite frankly, I feel exploited,” Stroh said in the video. She also shared that Levine reached out to her after things had ended with a request.
“He said, ‘Ok, serious question. I’m having another baby and if it’s [a] boy I really wanna name it Sumner,'” she said, reading the alleged message aloud. ‘”You ok with that? DEAD serious.'”
Levine and his wife of eight years recently revealed that they are expecting their third child.
