Several women have come forward in an attempt to expose the Maroon 5 frontman. In these series of screenshots, a chain started by Sumner Stroh, the 'Girls Like You' singer can be seen complimenting these women and continue to send flirtatious texts. While apologizing and addressing these allegations, Adam Levine said in an Instagram story, "A lot is being said about me right now and I want to clear the air. I used poor judgement in speaking with anyone other than my wife in ANY kind of flirtatious manner." The story continued, "I did not have an affair, nevertheless, I crossed the line during a regrettable period of my life." As this entire drama is caused by direct messages, people are now debating whether it is cheating to send direct messages while you're committed to someone else or not.

One user wrote, "No but depends on who the person was and what they’re talking about. kasi everyone needs privacy, but if he proceeds to “hide” or “lie” when i asked then that’s suspicious". Another user likes to believe that sliding into someone's DMs are normal but only with purpose saying, "What was the reason? if harmless then ofc no" One user believes it is cheating as they can spend time with their special someone instead of sliding into DMs saying, "Yes bc why would i slide into someone dms when i can have my time with my s/o"
