No, Maroon 5 hasn’t put out any new music, but frontman Adam Levine is definitely trending.
The musician has landed himself in an off-key controversy after his DMs started to leak this week. In the messages, Levine, who has been married to model Behati Prinsloo since 2014, gets more-than-flirty with other women.

Instagram model Sumner Stroh kicked off the accusations by saying she’d had an affair with Levine when she was “young” and “naïve.” In a TikTok video, Stroh shared snippets of their conversations, which began when Levine reached out to ask her if he could name his new baby “Sumner”:
Levine responded with a statement on Instagram denying the affair took place, but admitting that he “crossed a line.”
“A lot is being said about me right now and I want to clear the air,” he wrote. “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 in my life.

“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.”
One Twitter user offered this revision to the text:
But the damage control couldn’t stop the story, and soon two other woman — comedian Maryka and Instagram model Alyson Rose — shared messages they also claim they had with Levine.
In an Instagram story that’s since gone viral, Maryka alleges Levine messaged her, “Holy f*ck. Holy f*cking f*ck. That body of yours is absurd.”
