Sumner Stroh, an Instagram model, alleges that married Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine wanted permission to name his future child after her.
A model on Instagram says she had an affair with Adam Levine of Maroon 5 and that when they broke up, he emailed to ask if he could name his future child after her.
Allegations were made in a TikTok video broadcast on Monday by Sumner Stroh, who has just under 350,000 Instagram followers. She says she knew the singer, who is married, for roughly a year, although she doesn’t specify when. Behati Prinsloo of Victoria’s Secret is married to Levine.
Sumner Stroh Made Adam Levine Affair Claims
I had an affair with a guy married to Victoria’s Secret model. Sumner Stroh says in the video, “At the time, I was young, I was naïve, and, I mean, very simply, I feel used.”
With Prinsloo as his wife since 2014, Levine enjoys a happy marriage. Last month, the couple shared the exciting news that they are expecting their third child. They’re parents of two little ladies, ages 4 and 5.
Sumner Stroh said in her TikTok video that Levine sent her a direct message (DM) on Instagram “after I stopped communicating to him over a period of months.” “Ok, serious question,” the message begins. If it turns out to be a boy, I really want to call him Sumner, and I’m pregnant again. Is it something you can agree to? This is NO JOKE.
She also displayed screen captures of her flirtatious direct messages on Instagram with an account that purported to belong to Levine.
Sumner Stroh said she had no intention of going public with the tale but stepped forward when a friend tried to sell the screenshot to a tabloid.

As an excuse for her involvement in the affair, she said things like, “my values were inadvertently undermined” and “I was entirely deceived.”
Embarrassed I was associated w a guy with this absolute lack of remorse and respect, she captioned the video.
A Levine spokesman did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
The video that Sumner Stroh released had 7.5 million views in the first 10 hours. She produced a second video where she addressed her critics and emphasized that she was not attempting to portray herself as a victim.
She claimed, “I was not in any way aiming to elicit pity.” But I know I’m not the one who’s being victimized here. It’s not me who’s taking the brunt of this. I’m really sad that it’s Behati and her kids.
Stroh elaborated on her previous assertion that she was manipulated.
One of the most crucial details I overlooked was their apparent divorce. Since she was a newcomer to Los Angeles, she imagined that celebrities of that level kept their personal lives private to prevent unfavorable publicity.
She said that she felt taken advantage of due to the fact that she was a newcomer to Los Angeles and so more likely to trust anybody who claimed to be from the city. Also, he was direct messaging me on Instagram from his official account. No other explanation made sense to me, so I didn’t bother to investigate it further. But now I see that it was probably simply a manipulative ploy on his part, laying low in plain sight.
