After spending years earning a reputation as one of the music industry’s most prolific hunks thanks to a long list of model brides, it seemed that Adam Levine had finally put his self-confessed “promiscuity” behind him when he married model Behati Prinsloo. .
At first glance, the supermodel fit the stereotype of the singer’s previous girlfriends: stunning, blonde, and with an impressive resume packed with runway conquests and high-profile fashion campaigns.
Having embraced his lothario image – even admitting in a 2012 interview that he had enjoyed a “promiscuous” phase – blaming his desire to be with so many women on the fact that he “loved them so much”.
However, it is clear that the Victoria’s Secret model, who is now 34 years old, had won his heart, unlike the women with whom he had had an affair with the leader of Maroon 5 before her, to the extent of alienating him from his serial dating, diverting him towards a settled life as a family man.
However, after eight years of marriage – and two children, with a third on the way – Levine’s scandal-plagued love life is once again dominating headlines, after the 43-year-old actor admitted to “crossing the line”. ” with an Instagram influencer after going public with accusations that they had had a year-long affair.
The scandal erupted earlier this week, when 23-year-old Sumner Stroh posted a TikTok video revealing the details of his alleged illicit relationship with the famous pop rock star by sharing screenshots of their flirtations.
Sumner’s accusation left fans stunned given that Adam had apparently been so successful in his attempts to shed his playboy reputation – a makeover that gave him more credibility earlier this month when the singer and his Namibian wife announced expecting a third child together, a younger brother for daughters Dusty Rose, five, and Gio Grace, four.
However, according to Sumner, who now lives in Los Angeles after studying at the University of Texas, the couple’s baby on the way caused Levine to contact her months after their supposed romance ended, as he revealed a strange message on Instagram in which the musician asked if he could name his new son after him.
Since then, Levine has spoken out, stating that he did not have an affair with the model, but admitted that he had “crossed the line during an unfortunate period in my life.”
