LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Maroon 5 lead vocalist Adam Levine, 43, and Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo, 34, continue to hold their relationship strong amid the cheating scandal in which the singer got accused of sending flirtatious messages to many women, including model Sumner Stroh. From being photographed together in Montecito, California, just a day after Levine admitted to "crossing a line" in his marriage, to Prinsloo supporting her husband backstage at The Shaquille O'Neal Foundation’s ‘The Event’ fundraiser at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and walking arm-in-arm through the arena, the couple seems to be sending a clear signal by displaying their affection in public in the midst of the chaotic drama.

Talks of Levine's cheating began in September mid when the singer was accused of sending flirty DMs to model Sumner Stroh, 23, who later released a series of messages sent by Levine claiming she had a 'year-long' affair with him. Dana Omari, a digital creator whose Instagram account goes by @igfamousbydana, also shared sexts that Levine allegedly sent to another model, Maryka. One of the texts read, "Watching your ass jiggle on that table will permanently scar me. I’d do anything for it. I’d buy it a steak dinner and whisper sweet nothings into it." Among the cringiest lines that Levine used on the women this one takes the cake — “I may need to see the booty.”

'A regrettable period in my life'

Accepting the allegations, Levine released a statement via Instagram Story stating, “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 of my life,” MEAWW previously reported. He added, “In certain instances it became inappropriate. I have addressed that and taken proactive steps to remedy this with my 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. I take full responsibility. We will get through it and we will get through it together.”



However, Prinsloo, who is expecting a third child with Levine, is still standing by her husband in the wake of the scandal. The couple have been displaying much PDA and brushing off any speculation about possible marital issues. Recently, they were spotted on Butterfly Beach near the family's home in Montecito in Southern Calirfornia where Levine was captured wearing a $430K rare Rolex 'Daytona Cosmograph rainbow' watch, DailyMail reported.

'Fell in love over email'

Prinsloo and Levine's love story is a decade old. The singer began dating Prinsloo in May 2012, shortly after breaking up with Victoria’s Secret model Anne Vyalitsyna. In the 2019 cover story for Net-a-Porter, Prinsloo said she and her husband "fell in love over email." She said, "I met my husband through a mutual friend. 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,’ so he emailed me asking if I could do it. I ended up not doing it, but we kept emailing each other. It was such a natural correspondence that we kind of fell in love over email. A month later, I went to LA for a job, and that was the first time we met in person. I remember walking in: I opened the door, and it was the classic moment where the light shines into the dark studio and everyone turned to look at me. He had boxing gloves on and he came to hug me – it was so awkward. Then he took me for dinner and we talked for hours and had the best time. It was love at first sight, it was crazy."


Although the couple briefly broke up in May 2013, they couldn’t deny their connection, ansd got back two months later. A source told US Weekly at the time, "After Adam broke up with Behati, he couldn't stop thinking about her. He realized he really loved her and wanted to be with her." In July 2013, they announced their engagement and tied the knot in 2014. Two weeks after tying the knot, Levine shared a selfie with his new wife in vacation attire. "There is a strong situation going on here," he captioned. Prinsloo, who keeps giving a peek of life with Levine on Instagram once wrote, "Everyday is ❤️ day with you @adamlevine you’re so cool, you’re so cool, you’re so cool!"



Each other's support system

In 2019 in an interview with USA Today, Prinsloo opened up about her experience with postpartum depression following the birth of their first child, daughter Dusty Rose. She said, "I had moments of postpartum (depression) … that I felt like it was coming through. I think I got lucky not to have it to an extreme case, but you can see yourself spiraling." "My husband was so incredibly supportive and always got me out of it," she added. The model also made a cameo with the daughter Rose in the Maroon 5 'Girls Like You' music video.



And now, Prinsloo seems to be supporting her husband, inluding her support at The Event fundraiser hosted by Shaquille O’Neal Foundation. A source said, as quoted by Koimoi, "Behati was there and things are clearly great between her and Adam, she watched from a stool to the side of the stage and Adam Levine sang directly to her at one point. When ‘Girls Like You’ came on, Behati was bouncing around with her friends. She was visible to the audience and smiling and laughing. Everything is all good there.”
