Adam Levine is speaking out for the first time since he was accused in public of cheating on his pregnant wife of eight years, Behati Prinsloo. The 43-year-old lead singer of Maroon 5 wrote on Instagram Tuesday morning: “Right now, a lot is being said about me, and I want to set the record straight.
I did not think things through very well when I flirted with anyone other than my wife. Even though I did not have an affair, I crossed the line during a wrong time in my life.” Levine continued: “In some situations, it was no longer appropriate, so I talked to my family about it and took steps to fix it.
All I care about in this world are my wife and my family. It was the worst mistake I could ever make to be so naive and stupid as to put the only thing that really mattered to me at risk. I will not make it ever again. I own up to everything.
We will make it through. And we will get through it as a group.” The statement was made in response to an Instagram model’s TikTok video, which went viral, in which she said she had an affair with Levine for a year.
Stroh did not say when the alleged relationship happened, but she did post screenshots of what she said were direct messages from the musician on Instagram, including one from April after she said they would be stopped talking. Stroh said she had wanted to “handle this privately,” but she felt forced to share the story on TikTok after a friend allegedly tried to sell the screenshots to a tabloid.
Levine, 34, and Prinsloo, 34, have two daughters, Dusty Rose, who will be six this month, and Gio Grace, who will be four this month. They are also expecting a third child. The Victoria’s Secret model told The Zoe Report in April, “We’re best friends, and we have such similar interests,”
“We try to look out for each other. So we have time to ourselves, but kids are crazy!” The couple met for the first time when a mutual friend sent them an email. Over a series of messages, they got to know each other better.
“Adam was looking for a girl for a music video that could do some action stuff, and our friend was like, ‘You should meet Behati because she’s a total tomboy and down for anything,'” In 2019, Prinsloo said this to Net-A-PORTER Porter’s Edit.
“We kept sending and receiving emails. It was so easy to talk to each other that we sort of fell in love through email.” Even though the Namibian model did not take the job, she kept talking to Levine about it, and a month later, they met in person in Los Angeles. “It was love at first sight. It was crazy,” she said.
Even though they broke up for a short time, they got engaged in July 2013 and were married in July 2014. She told the outlet, “We broke up for two months, realized that it was the worst decision, then got back together, got engaged, and got married,” “It was a wild ride!”
In 2016, the singer posted an Instagram tribute to his family that gave fans a brief look at his life as a father. “I have everything I need here.(Beach not required), “Levine wrote in the photo’s caption that he was holding Prinsloo’s hand while she carried their daughter in a front-facing baby carrier. In 2021, the two of them started their own tequila brand called Calirosa.
