Levine continued: “My wife and my family is 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.”
Amid the drama, two more women came forward claiming that Levine had sent them flirty messages. “I shouldn’t be talking to you you know [that] right 😤?” the “Maps” musician allegedly wrote in a screenshot shared by one woman in a since-deleted TikTok video. She claimed that she had “a lot more” evidence to support her allegations but chose not to share them because she “wasn’t “comfortable posting everything” Levine allegedly sent.
On September 19, Stroh claimed that Levine "manipulated" her into a year-long relationship. "At the time, I was young, I was naive … I was very easily manipulated,” she alleged via a TikTok video, adding in the caption that she was "embarrassed I was involved [with] a man with this utter lack of remorse and respect."
The University of Texas alum also claimed that she wanted to handle the situation "privately," but felt compelled to come forward after a friend allegedly attempted to sell screenshots of her and Levine's conversations. "I know the implications that come with doing what I do … so, being tied to a story like this [isn’t good for my image],” she said.

The Baby Name Question
In her initial video, Stroh claimed that several months after she and the "Moves Like Jagger" performer ended their relationship, he reached out to her once again. “He said, ‘OK. Serious question. I’m having another baby and if it’s a boy, I want to name it Sumner,'” Stroh claimed, once again showing screenshots from the messages Levine allegedly sent in June. “[He asked,] ‘You OK with that? Dead serious.'"

Adam Speaks Out
After the initial video went viral, the former Voice coach denied cheating on Prinsloo with Stroh or any other woman. "I did not have an affair, nevertheless, I crossed the line during a regrettable period of my life. In certain instances it became inappropriate," he wrote on September 20, adding that he had begun taking "proactive steps" to heal the strain with his family. "My wife and my family is 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."

Sumner Apologizes to Behati
After her initial video went viral, Stroh issued a public apology to Prinsloo. “I fully realize I’m not the victim in this. I’m not the one who’s really getting hurt here. It’s Behati and her children, and for that, I’m so, so sorry,” she said in a second TikTok video.

More Women Come Forward
Amid the drama, several more women came forward claiming that Levine had exchanged "flirty" messages with them online. In a since-deleted TikTok video, one woman alleged that she had "a lot" of screenshots from her conversations with the "Misery" singer but opted not to share them because she "wasn’t “comfortable posting everything" Levine allegedly sent her. “I guess if any other girls have experienced this with him … I just think they should post it ’cause I feel really bad for his wife, and nobody deserves this,” she added.
Meanwhile, a third woman named Maryka uploaded screenshots of conversations that she allegedly had with Levine via her Instagram Story, claiming that he asked her to "distract yourself by f–king with me!" Her Instagram Story has also since been deleted.
Levine’s former yoga instructor claimed on September 20 that he once told her via text, “I want to spend the day with you naked,” and made comments about her butt to his friends. She alleged via her Instagram Story that the incident, which took place between 2007 and 2011, led to her then-boyfriend getting into a physical altercation.
Zabel later confessed via Instagram that Levine “was not responsible for my abusive ex-boyfriend” and his “texts was not wrong IMO [in my opinion].” The AZ I AM founder exclusively told Us on September 22 that she was “blindsided” by the series of events, noting she didn’t realize how working with a celebrity was “affecting my other relationships.”
While Zabel told Us she didn’t think Levine crossed the line with her, she noted that “as far as [she] knows” he was seeing people when he texted her. However, the yogi revealed that she is not like the other women who’ve come forward with alleged flirty text tales.
“I'm not like the other ones and my story is different and I've been holding it in for a long time,” she said. “So for me it's just I'm in a different phase of life and it's time to heal and when you're in that phase and you just want to share the truth and you just don't care what people think anymore, it's part of the healing process, that's all.”

'Beyond Grateful and Lucky' for Behati
As Prinsloo and Levine make their way through the storm as a couple — "it's been a horrible time for them, Behati especially,” a source told Us — they are focusing on the positive and “feel extremely blessed to have this baby on the way.”
The insider added that the "Girls Like You" singer "feels awful for what he’s put her through.”
“All he can do now is make sure he works on himself and doesn’t mess things up again," the source said. "He loves her dearly and feels beyond grateful and lucky that she’s sticking by his side and giving him a second chance to prove himself.”
