Musician Adam Levin said to “clear the air” after the rumours that he was involved in a year-long affair with an Instagram model while he was married to his wife.

Earlier this week, internet personality Sumner Straw said in a viral TikTok post that she previously participated in “affair with a man who is married to a Victoria’s Secret model” for a year.

She then shared screenshots of the messages she claimed were sent to her in the clip Maroon 5 front man

On Tuesday afternoon, Adam shared a statement on his personal Instagram that read: “I’m being talked about a lot right now and I want to clear the air.

“I was ill-advised to speak to anyone but my wife in ANY flirtatious manner. I didn’t have an affair, but I crossed the line at a sad time in my life.

“In some cases it has become inappropriate; I addressed it and took proactive steps to make it right with my family.”

Adam was married to a model Behati Prinsloo since 2014. The couple has two daughters together, aged five Dusty Rose (who turns six later this week) and four-year-old Geo Grace.

Earlier this month it was announced that Adam and Behati are expecting their third child.

At the end of his statement on Instagram, Adam concluded: “All I care about in this world is my wife and my family. Being naive and stupid enough to risk the only thing that really mattered to me was the biggest mistake I could have made. I will never do it again.

“I take full responsibility. We will survive it. And we will survive it together.”
