Who is Sumner Stroh?  Instagram model says she had an affair with Adam Levine
  • Only Fans, 23, and Instagram model Sumner Stroh, said she had an affair with Adam Levine.
  • In the screenshots, Levine appears to tell the model that he is considering naming his third child “Sumner”.
  • Levine responded to the allegations in a statement, acknowledging that he “crossed the line”.

Sumner Stroh, a 23-year-old influencer and Instagram model, went viral this week when she posted a TikTok saying she had a year-long affair with Maroon 5 musician Adam Levine.

The video, viewed 21 million times, was posted five days after Behati Prinsloo, Victoria’s Secret model and Levine’s wife of 8 years, announced that she was pregnant with her third child. (Levine and Prinsloo share daughters Gio Grace, 4, and Dusty Rose, 5, together.)

In it, Stroh said that she “was having an affair with a man married to a Victoria’s Secret model” and said she felt “manipulated, adding: “At the time, you know, I was young and naive and, I mean, frankly, I feel exploited. I wasn’t in the scene like I am now. So I was definitely very easily manipulated.”

Stroh said Levine came back into her life months after they ended their affair with an Instagram DM on June 1 that said he was considering naming his third child “Sumner.” A representative for Stroh previously shared a screen recording of the messages with the Insider, verifying that they were sent from Levine’s account to Stroh’s.

“Okay, serious question. I’m having another baby and if it’s a w boy, I really want to name him Sumner. Are you okay with that? DEAD seriously,” read the message from The Voice judge.

She told viewers that she “knows the stereotypes” about Instagram models and said that she initially planned to handle the matter privately, but she “recklessly” shared screenshots with friends. One of them then tried to sell the story to a tabloid, prompting Stroh to go public.

According to the company’s “about us” page, Strung by Stroh was inspired by “Baylen’s love of making jewelry with his grandmother and little sister every summer growing up”. Stroh also signed with talent management company Verge Agency.

In a 2020 YouTube video, the sisters said they are very close but have “highs and lows” in their relationship. In the same video, Stroh talked about trying to stop vaping using Nicorette, calling her habit “so ratchet”.

In September 2021, Stroh posted a reel of Del Valle, Texas from Maroon 5 on the tour date, showing up just feet from the stage.

Levine denied accusations, but acknowledged that he ‘crossed the line’

Levine denied the affair with Stroh in a statement provided to TMZ and his Instagram story on September 20, although he said he “crossed the line”.

“I used little judgment when speaking to anyone other than my wife of ANY type of flirtation. I have not had an affair, however, I crossed the line during an unfortunate period of my life,” he said in the statement. “In certain cases it became inappropriate. I addressed this and took proactive steps to remedy this with my family.”

“My wife and family are all I care about in this world,” added Levine. “Being so naive and stupid enough to risk the only thing that really matters to me was the biggest mistake I could ever make. I will never make that again. I take full responsibility. We will get through this and we will get through this together. .”

Sumner responded to comments on another TikTok

In a follow-up video, Stroh responded to a comment suggesting she was portraying herself as a victim and said she was “embarrassed” and “disgusted” with herself, telling viewers she believed the couple had split but was keeping their secret news “to avoid negative press.”

“I only came forward because I wanted to kill whatever story the tabloid had,” she said, adding that she was “under the impression” Levine and Prinsloo’s marriage was over. “I believed they were keeping it a secret to avoid negative press,” she said. “I just assumed with celebrities of that caliber that’s how it was. That’s why I feel exploited – because he knew I believed everything he said.” Stroh said he ended things upon realizing the two weren’t apart.

“In retrospect, I wish I had questioned things more,” Stroh continued. “I wish I weren’t so naive, but, you know, being naive is not an excuse for what I did and the role I played in it.”

A representative for Stroh previously told Insider, “The case ran from the summer of 2021 until recently,” but declined to provide further comment.

A representative for Levine did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
