After an influencer claimed she had an affair with Adam Levine of Maroon 5 and that he sought to name his daughter (with supermodel Behati Prinsloo) after her, the singer has received backlash on social media. On TikTok, Instagram model Sumner Stroh revealed that she had an affair with the husband of Victoria’s Secret model.
I was young and naive and now feel like I was taken advantage of. She displayed screenshots of direct messages (DMs) she claimed came from Adam Levine, in which the two appeared to flirt, and a subsequent text in which Levine asked her permission to name his future kid after her.
This is a serious question, so bear with me. If it turns out to be a boy, I want to call him Sumner. Can I get your OK on that? When I say “dead serious,” I mean it literally, as the texts from Levine attest. Stroh said that she knew the risks of “coming forward” and that she had shown the readers to a friend who had tried to sell them to the media.

While Levine received the most backlash, several Twitter users criticized Stroh for her participation, and discussions of power dynamics were front and center.
Okay the whole Adam Levine cheating on his wife Behati Prinsloo with Sumner Stroh is messy AF.
But why are people so much madder at Sumner than Adam? He at the time of the affair was a 40 yr old married man and she was 19.
But it’s her fault for making him stray? 😒 pic.twitter.com/7CgKzDYd4j

Lmao the ppl saying that sumner stroh is some kind of victim here…
doesn’t matter how rich or famous a person is, she knew he was married and still got with Adam Levine (a known father and husband) for a YEAR. She didn’t get manipulated, some ppl just have morals.

Blaming “the other woman” is a dated, unfair, sexist trope.
So I don’t blame Sumner Stroh for Adam Levine cheating on his wife. That’s on him.
I do blame her though for the global humiliation she inflicted on the wife for clout.
Behati Prinsloo and her children deserve better. https://t.co/us7Ojkgp9c

idgaf if sumner stroh knew adam levine was married or not—she was in her very early 20s at the time and this man is in his 40s and is a person of power and authority over her.
it’s another example of powerful men taking advantage of younger women. stop blaming her, it’s gross.

Neither Levine nor Prinsloo has addressed the issue.
