‘I crossed the line’: Adam Levine denies cheating on his wife with Tiktok model – Videos
Adam Levine said he ‘crossed the line’ with his flirtatious behaviour – but has denied cheating on his wife.
The 43-year-old pop star on Tuesday rubbished claims made by Instagram model Sumner Stroh that he cheated on his wife Behati Prinsloo, while at the same time he confessed to showing ‘poor judgement’.
Stroh said on a viral TikTok post that she had a year-long affair with the married Maroon 5 singer.

On his part, the singer who has been married to the model since 2014 said that a lot is being said about him and he wants to clear the air.
“A lot is being said about me right now and I want to clear the air. I used poor judgment in speaking with anyone other than my wife in ANY kind of flirtatious manner.
I did not have an affair, nevertheless, I crossed the line during a regrettable period of my life,” Levine, who is expecting his third child with wife Behati Prinsloo, wrote in a statement posted on his Instagram Story.
Adding, “in certain instances it became inappropriate; I have addressed that and taken proactive steps to remedy this with my family.
I used poor judgment in speaking with anyone other than my wife in ANY kind of flirtatious manner. I did not have an affair, nevertheless, I crossed the line during a regrettable period in my life. (sic)”
Levine and Behati have two children together and recently announced that they are expecting their third child together.
And although Adam has confessed to ‘inappropriate’ behaviour, he’s promised he won’t repeat his mistake.
“In certain instances it became inappropriate; I have addressed that and taken proactive steps to remedy this with my family.
“My wife and my family are all I care about in this world. To be this naive and stupid enough to risk the only thing that truly mattered to me was the greatest mistake I could ever make.
I will never make it again. I take full responsibility. We will get through it. And we will get through it together.”
The Sugar artist, 43, made headlines on Monday when the influencer shared allegations about their affair on TikTok. “Essentially, I was having an affair with a man who’s married to Victoria’s Secret model,” Stroh began.
“At the time, I was young, I was naïve and quite frankly I feel exploited. I wasn’t in the scene like I am now, so I was definitely easily manipulated.”
The Instagram model even suggested that Levine wanted to name his third child with Behati after her.
Stroh explained: “He said, ‘Ok, serious question. I’m having another baby and if it’s [a] boy I really wanna name it Sumner. You OK with that? DEAD serious.’”

At the end of her TikTok, Stroh said that she “never wanted to come forward” with this story but decided to speak out after “recklessly” sending screenshots to friends she thought she could trust.
“One of them had attempted to sell to a tabloid,” she explained. “So here I am.”
The Internet blew up over the claims … with Levine trending on Twitter.
Some were buying it, while others suspect Sumner of chasing clout.
Adam and Behati have been together since 2012, they did split briefly in May 2013, but announced their engagement a few months later and tied the knot the following year.
