Adam Levine is breaking his silence after he was publicly accused of cheating on Behati Prinsloo, his pregnant wife of eight years.
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."
Levine continued: In certain instances it becomes 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.
The statement comes in response to a viral TikTok video shared by Instagram model Sumner Stroh in which she claimed to have had a year-long affair with Levine.
Stroh claimed she had wanted to "handle this privately," but felt forced to share the story on TikTok after a friend allegedly tried to sell the screenshots to a tabloid.
Levine and Prinsloo, 34, are parents to daughters Dusty Rose, 6 this month, and Gio Grace, 4, and are expecting a third child.
"We're best friends and we have such similar interests," Victoria's Secret model told The Zoe Report in April. "We try and put each other first. So we get our alone time in — but kids are crazy!"
The couple first met after a mutual friend introduced them via email, and grew their initial bond over a series of messages.
"Adam was looking for a girl for a music video, and Adam found Behati Prinsloo, "We kept emailing each other. It was such a natural correspondence that we kind of fell in love over email."
Though the Namibia-born model didn't end up taking the gig, she did keep speaking to Levine, and they met in person for the first time a month later in Los Angeles.
"It was love at first sight, it was crazy," she said.
"We broke up for two months, realized that it was the worst decision, then got back together, got engaged and got married," she told the outlet. "It was a wild ride!"
