Adam Levine broke his silence on Tuesday about rumors he cheated on wifeBehati Prinsloo with Instagram model Sumner Stroh. The Maroon 5 frontmandenied Stroh’s claim they had a year-long affair, but admitted he “crossed theline” with flirty messages. Levine’s statement comes one week after Prinslooconfirmed the couple is expecting their third child.

“A lot is being said about me right now and I wan to clear the air. I usedpoor judgment in speaking with anyone other than my wife in ANY kind offlirtatious manner. I did not have an affair, nevertheless, I crossed the lineduring a regrettable period of my life,” Levine said in a statement on hisInstagram story. “In certain instances it became inappropriate. I haveaddressed that and taken proactive steps to remedy this with my family.”

Levine, who wed Prinsloo in 2014, went on to apologize to his family. He andthe Victoria’s Secret model are parents to daughters Gio Grace, 4, and DustyRose, 5.

“My wife and my family is all I care about in this world. To be this naive andstupid enough to risk the only thing that truly matters to me was the greatestmistake I could ever make,” Levine continued. “I will never make it again. Itake full responsibility. We will get through it and we will get through ittogether.”

Yahoo Entertainment reached out to Stroh after Levine’s statement, but did notimmediately receive a response.

Levine didn’t address one of Stroh’s more surprising allegations — that thesinger asked if he could name his unborn child after her. The Instagram modelcame forward on Monday and alleged she had an affair with Levine. Stroh saidshe was going public as a friend was trying to sell the story to a tabloid.

“Essentially, I was having an affair with a man who’s married to a Victoria’sSecret model. At the time, you know, I was young, I was naive, and, I meanquite frankly, I feel exploited,” Stroh began in a now viral TikTok.

Stroh, who said she was “easily manipulated,” shared alleged Instagram DMswith Levine in which he purportedly wrote, “It is truly unreal how f***ing hotyou are… like it blows my mind.” It’s unclear when the supposed messages weresent.

“Adam and I were seeing each other for about a year,” she continued. “After Istopped talking to him for a period of months, this is how he came back intomy life.”

Stroh then showed an alleged DM from Levine on June 1 that reads: “Ok seriousquestion. I’m having another baby and if it’s [a] boy I really wanna name itSumner. you ok with that? DEAD serious.”

people reported two weeks ago that Prinsloo was pregnant with her andLevine’s third child. It’s unclear how far along the model is and if thistiming would add up.

Stroh added that she “never wanted to come forward” about the alleged affair.”Being tied to a story like this… I know the stereotypes,” she said. Strohadded that she “recklessly” sent screenshots from Levine to a few friends, oneof whom supposedly shopped the story.

Stroh addressed the affair claims again on her Instagram Story on Monday.

“Aware people are going to try to fill in the gaps with many falseassumptions. I don’t feel like I’m doing any favors considering the mannerthis had to go about. It’s a lot to digest but hopefully, at the very least ,the truth being out can do some good,” she wrote on Monday.
