An Instagram model has claimed she had a year-long affair with Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, who later reportedly asked if he could name his new baby with wife Behati Prinsloo after her.
Sumner Stroh, 23, shared details about her alleged illicit relationship with the married pop rock singer, in a TikTok video uploaded Monday.
“Essentially I had an affair with a man who is married to a Victoria’s Secret supermodel,” she said, referring to Levine’s wife Behati, 34, who is now pregnant with the couple’s third child.
‘I was young and naive then. And I mean, frankly, I feel exploited. I wasn’t in the scene as I am now, so I was definitely easy to manipulate.’

“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,” Levine said, according to a screenshot of the messages.
Upon receiving the bizarre message, Stroh said she felt “in hell.”
“I mean, my morale was subconsciously affected. I was completely manipulated,” she said in the TikTok video that has since gone viral.
Stroh said a friend she confided in about the affair and sent the screenshots to threatened to make her story public, leaving her determined to tell her story herself.
“I wanted to handle this privately. I never wanted to come forward because of course I know the implications of doing what I do, making money the way I do and being an Instagram model.
“I had 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,” she added.
