In a TikTok confessional, Sumner Stroh claimed she had a year-long affair with 43-year-old Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine. Levine has been married to model and Victoria’s Secret Angel Behati Prinsloo since 2014. The couple announced they were expecting their third child together in PEOPLE on Sept. 6.
Who is Sumner Stroh?
Stroh was born Aug. 11, 1999, and is currently 23 years old. She graduated from the University of Texas. Stroh is an Instagram model and has an OnlyFans account.
Allegations against Adam Levine
“Essentially, I was having an affair with a man who was married to a Victoria’s Secret model,” Stroh said.
The man was supposedly Levine. She described herself as “young and naive” at the time but added that she felt she was “exploited.”
“I was definitely very easily manipulated,” she said.
Stroh revealed alleged screenshots of text messages where Levine complimented her attractiveness. Months after things ended, Stroh said that Levine came back into her life via Instagram.
“I have to be in hell at this point,” Stroh joked about how the message made her feel. “My morals were unknowingly compromised. I was completely manipulated.
Stroh explained that the reason why she was reluctantly coming forward was to further avoid drama. She sent the alleged screenshots to friends privately expecting support. However, one of them threatened to sell the screenshots to tabloids. Stroh shared the story herself to stop them.
Ultimately, Stroh wrote in the caption that she is “embarrassed I was involved with a man with this utter lack of remorse and respect.”
Internet reacts to allegations
“Adam Levine is dead wrong for what he did, but this girl needs to take accountability. One google search would’ve shown he was married, so I don’t understand how he manipulated you into an affair for a year? Only victim is the wife and children,” @sonnyrose31 added to the conversation.
