An Instagram model has claimed that she and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine were having an affair in a shocking, now viral TikTok.
Sumner Stroh claimed on the platform Monday that she “had an affair with a man who was married to a Victoria’s Secret model” when she was “young”, “naive” and “taken advantage of” – and allegedly had receipts.
Stroh, who describes herself as an “Instagram model” in the video and has an OnlyFans account, also claimed that although they no longer see each other, he reportedly messaged her and Levine asking her permission to to name his unborn child “Sumner”.
In her video, which has been viewed more than 14.1 million times in a matter of hours, Stroh, who is in her 20s, claimed the two had been seeing each other for almost a year, although the exact timeline is unclear.
Levine, 43, and model Behati Prinsloo, 34, have been married since July 19, 2014 and announced on September 6 that they are expecting their third child.
When contacted by Page Six, Stroh claimed the alleged affair, which happened “last year,” was “physical, yes, but I’m not going to say anything more.”
The Post has reached out to Levine and Prinsloo representatives for comment, who have not yet responded to the claims.
“I was embarrassed to be involved with a man with this complete lack of remorse and respect,” Stroh, who has over 338,000 followers on Instagram, commented on the video in which she discusses the allegations.
“You know, I was young then, I was naive. I mean honestly, I feel taken advantage of,” she said of their alleged relationship. “I wasn’t in the scene like I am now, so I was definitely very easily manipulated.”
Stroh thought Maroon 5 was “practically elevator music at the time,” and reportedly shared screenshots between her and Levine with messages she claims came from him.
“It’s really unreal how freaking hot you are,” he reportedly wrote in the messages, which didn’t show exact dates. “Like it would blow my mind.”
Stroh, who poses online as a Texas grad, claimed she stopped speaking to the tattooed Super Bowl halftime show performer, but he reportedly “came back into her life” in June with gorgeous Instagram messages.
“Ok, serious question,” Levine reportedly wrote in messages that appeared on Stroh’s lock screen on June 1. “I’m having another baby and if it w [sic] Boy, I really want to call it Sumner. Do you agree? dead serious.”
“I was like, ‘I’m in Hell,'” Stroh said of his alleged question. “I must be in Hell at this point.”
Stroh said she never intended to go public with the alleged affair, but a friend she trusted reportedly sent the screenshots and “attempted to sell them.” [them] to a tabloid.”
“So here I am,” she said somberly.
In an Instagram story, Stroh admitted she’s had a backlash on social media over her claims.
“Conscious people will try to fill in the gaps with many false assumptions. I don’t feel like I’m doing any favors considering how this had to go,” she said. “It’s a lot to digest, but hopefully it can at least do some good when the truth comes out.”
Stroh also posted a “Part 2” video late Monday night, which she felt was “necessary” as she feels “ruinful,” “embarrassed,” and “disgusted” with herself.
However, the model responded to comments on TikTok questioning her intentions.
“May I ask why he doesn’t go straight to his wife and at least warn her before he hits her with a TikTok come-out?” asked one person. “I tried,” Stroh replied.
“No one looks good in this story,” wrote another, to which Stroh replied, “I’m aware.”
“It makes me sick,” Stroh replied to a user who criticized her, writing, “‘Manipulated’ that’s a groovy way of dodging your percentage blame.”
TikTok users had mixed reactions to Stroh’s claims.
“HE WANTED TO NAME THE BABY AFTER YOU ……..is he alright???” One user commented on the allegations.
“OMG my mouth dropped when I saw his name,” said another. “Maaaan even Victoria Secret models get scammed no one is safe from,” added another.
Others blame the model.
“…but you knew he was married,” another embarrassed the influencer.
“It’s no secret that he’s been married for a decade. The only victim here is his wife and children,” wrote one user.
“I was completely manipulated by a man I knew was married,” sneered another. “The jokes write themselves.”
“Confused situation but there are responsibilities that need to be held on both sides,” wrote another with the side-eyed emoji.
“I think she forgot the apology somewhere,” another said of Stroh.
After reading and responding to several of them, Stroh said she would elaborate on the situation further.
“I am disgusted and so ashamed of the pain and injury I have caused. I didn’t want to sound teary so that wasn’t said in this video,” she wrote.
