Adam Levine “crossed the line” with his flirtatious behaviour – but has denied cheating on his wife.
The 43-year-old pop star has rubbished claims made by Instagram model Sumner Stroh that he cheated on Behati Prinsloo – although he confessed to showing “poor judgement”.
In a statement on Instagram, Adam – who has been married to model Behati since 2014 – said: “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 in my life.”
Adam and Behati – who have children Dusty, five, and Gio, four, together – recently announced they’re expecting their third child.
And although Adam has confessed to “inappropriate” behaviour”, he’s promised he won’t repeat his mistake.
He said: “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 matters 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 Maroon 5 star made the statement after Sumner claimed she dated the singer for about a year. She also shared Instagram messages that she claimed are from Adam.
Sumner said in a TikTok video: “At the time, I was young, I was naive and, quite frankly, I feel exploited.”
She even suggested that Adam wanted to name his third child with Behati after her.
Sumner 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.'”
