Adam Levine shocks fans with FACE tattoo: Here's the TRUTH behind the rose
'I feel exploited’
As per The Daily Mail, Sumner Stroh, taking to TikTok, said, “Essentially, I was having an affair with a man who is married to Victoria's Secret supermodel.” She continued, “At the time, I was young and naïve. And I mean, quite frankly, I feel exploited. I wasn't in the scene like I am now, so I was definitely easily manipulated.”
The brunette, who is currently based in LA after studying at the University of Texas, shared a screenshot of flirtatious messages between the two where Levine writes, “It is unreal how f*****g hot you are. Like it blows my mind.' 'You are 50 times hotter in person,'” In another screenshot, Levine can be seen asking Stroh if he could name his third child after her- a message she got after the two lost contact “for months.” She had claimed they dated for about a year.
‘My morals were unknowingly compromised’
In the screenshot, "Ok serious question. I am having another baby and if it's [a] boy I really wanna name it Sumner. You ok with that? DEAD serious”. Stroh claimed she was left horrified after getting this text from the 43-year-old crooner. Stroh said she felt like she was “in hell” upon reading the odd message. “I mean my morals were unknowingly compromised. I was completely manipulated”, said the model in the TikTok video that has now gone viral.
In the clip, she further stated, “I wanted to handle this privately. I never wanted to come forward because obviously I know the implications that come with doing what I do, making money the way I do, and being an Instagram model.” She continued, “I had sent some screenshots recklessly to a few friends I thought I trusted and one of them had attempted to sell to a tabloid...So here I am.”
Stroh did not share details on the exact timeline of her affair with Levine but the clip emerged just five days after Prinsloo confirmed her pregnancy on an Instagram post. Adam Levine has, so far, not commented on the controversy and there is no comment from Behati Prinsloo as well.
