“Bring this man a dictionary,” Stroh wrote on his Instagram Story.
Hours earlier, Levine, the lead singer of Maroon 5, addressed the accusations made by Stroh in a viral TikTok video which has been viewed more than 18 million times since she posted it on Monday.
Levine admitted in a statement posted to his Instagram Story that he “crossed a line” and exercised “poor judgment by speaking with anyone other than my wife in ANY flirtatious way.”
“I didn’t have an affair, yet I crossed the line during a regrettable time in my life,” I wrote. “In some cases, it became inappropriate. I addressed this issue and took proactive steps to address it with my family.
The singer has been married to Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo since 2014. They have two daughters, ages 4 and 5. Prinsloo recently announced that she is pregnant with their third child.
In Stroh’s version, she and Levine had been seeing each other for about a year. She accused him of contacting her after they stopped talking to ask if he could name his next baby after him.
“I was having an affair with a man who was married to a Victoria’s Secret model. At the time, I was young, I was naive,” she says.
She showed screenshots of alleged Instagram exchanges with Levine in which the singer appeared to have written her DMs such as “it’s really unreal how fucking sexy you are” and “you’re 50 times sexier in person”.
She also shared a screenshot of the alleged message she sent months later, which read: “Ok serious question. I’m having another baby and if it’s [a] boy, I really want to call him Sumner. Are you okay with that? DEATH seriously.
She insisted she never planned to tell the story, but did so after a friend she sent the screenshot to tried to sell it to a tabloid.
She claimed in a follow-up video shared later Monday that she got into the relationship because Levine made her feel like her marriage to Prinsloo was over.
“I thought they were keeping quiet to avoid negative press,” she said. “I fully realize that I am not a victim in this. I am not the one who is really hurt here. It is Behati and her children and for that I am so sorry.
