Comedian Maryka and a woman named Alyson Rose posted screenshots of their alleged Instagram conversations with Levine, shortly after LA-based model Sumner Stroh revealed she had a secret relationship with the singer last year.
In a series of Instagram stories captioned, ‘#ExposeAdamLevine,’ on Tuesday, Maryka shared messages that showed Levine, 43, allegedly encouraging flirty and raunchy banter with the woman, sending her a private video selfie, and complimenting her voluptuous figure.
In one exchange, the musician tells her to ‘Distract yourself by f**king with me.’ Later, he sends her a brief video of himself saying: ‘I’m stupid.’
Their conversations also appeared to have turned X-rated, according to additional screenshots shared with influencer Dana Omari, who posted them on her account on Maryka’s behalf.

Although the context of the messages are unclear, some of the exchanges appear to have timestamps from July this year, when Levine would have marked his eighth wedding anniversary with wife Behati.
In one alleged conversation, he tells the woman: ‘I’m now obsessed with you’.
When Maryka replies: ‘Dude aren’t you like married lol’, Levine admits he is but says ‘it’s a bit complicated.’
He then makes a tongue-in-cheek remark: ‘Stuff gets hard and the vid thing didn’t help. I might get away’.
Another screenshot shows Levine firing off a series of messages leching over the woman’s ‘hourglass figure’, saying: ‘Holy f**king f**k. That body of yours is absurd.’
At one point after receiving a private photo from Maryka that cannot be seen in the screengrabs, he encourages her to send more, saying: ‘I may need to see the booty.’
Levine continues lusting over the woman’s ample assets in another screenshot.
‘Watching your a** jiggle on that table will permanently scar me but otherwise I’m amazing,’ he wrote, although it is unclear what he is referring to.
He then adds: ‘I’d do anything for it.’
‘I’d buy it a steak dinner and whisper sweet nothings into it.
‘I wanna tattoo my a** now.’
Adam Levine finally addressed rumors that he cheated on wife Behati Prinsloo (pictured left in November 2021) on Tuesday, admitting he crossed the line with another woman – but denied having an affair. He is pictured right walking alone in Miami last month
Maryka also shared a screen-recording she took of a video Levine sent her, where he can be seen saying: ‘I’m stupid’
In a now viral TikTok video , Alyson Rose also shared screengrabs of Levine’s alleged messages to her, including one in which he said: ‘I shouldn’t be talking to you you know [that] right?’
In a message exchange dated June 27, Levine once again bizarrely references his wife’s pregnancy while revealing what he wants to name the baby boy – which he had previously done during a conversation with Sumner Stroh.
‘I’m having another baby. Wifey pregnant! And I’m having a BOY. And naming him Zea. He will be a bad a**,’ he said, according to the screenshot.
In a now deleted TikTok video, Alyson Rose also shared screengrabs of Levine’s alleged messages to her, including one in which he said: ‘I shouldn’t be talking to you you know [that] right?’
Rosef claimed there was ‘a lot more that was said that was not appropriate. I just didn’t feel comfortable posting everything.’
Earlier, Instagram influencer Sumner Stroh hit back at Levine after he denied they had an affair and appeared to downplay their relationship as merely ‘flirtatious’.
The 23-year-old model took to Instagram to pour scorn on the Maroon 5 frontman’s comments on Tuesday, sharing a brief but withering post reading: ‘Someone get this man a dictionary.’
The message presumably refers to Levine’s earlier statement, in which he admitted he had been ‘inappropriate’ with the young woman, but seemed to suggest that their relationship was not physical.
The singer shared a post addressing the cheating rumors, which emerged just days after his supermodel wife Behati Prinsloo confirmed she was expecting their third child.
‘I used poor judgment in speaking with anyone other than my wife in ANY kind of flirtatious manner,’ the musician said.
‘I did not have an affair, nevertheless, I crossed the line during a regrettable period of my life. In certain instances it became inappropriate. I have addressed that and taken proactive steps to remedy this with my family.’
He continued: ‘My wife and my family is all I care about in this world. To be this naïve 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.’
The statement however, appears to contradict Stroh’s now viral TikTok video where she claimed that she had an ‘affair’ with Levine for ‘about a year’ and included their flirty messages that suggested the two had met in person at least once.

In a statement posted on his Instagram account, the lead singer of Maroon 5 said he had used ‘poor judgment’ and had been ‘inappropriate’ by speaking to another woman in an flirtatious manner
Stroh responded to Levine’s statement, simply writing ‘Someone get this man a dictionary.’
Hours after publicly revealing their alleged affair, Instagram model Sumner Stroh issued a public apology, claiming she was led to believe the singer’s marriage to pregnant wife Behati Prinsloo ‘was over’ at the time of their fling
Sumner Stroh, 23, first took to TikTok to reveal she had a secret relationship with the married Maroon 5 frontman that lasted ‘about a year’
The bombshell revelation sparked a frenzy on social media, with critics branding her a ‘homewrecker’ and accusing the young model of deliberately choosing to get involved with a married man.
Stroh responded to the comments in a second video posted hours later where she expressed her ‘remorse’ for her actions and issued an apology to Levine’s wife.
The social media personality, who had just moved to Los Angeles at the time of their fling, also claimed that she had naively believed Levine and Prinsloo’s marriage was ‘over’ at the time.
‘The most important part that I definitely glossed over was the fact that I was under the impression that their marriage was over,’ she said in a follow-up TikTok video.
‘I believed they were keeping it quiet to avoid the negative press because, as I had said, I was new to LA so I just assumed that with celebrities of the caliber that’s just how it was.
‘And that’s why I feel exploited because he knew I believed everything he said because of my vulnerable position of being new to LA.’
Stroh’s video was a response to a comment on her original video which read: ‘It’s no secret he’s been married for a decade. The only victim here is his wife and children.’
She claimed that she had ‘no reason’ to question what Levine had told her about the state of his marriage since he had been contacting her through his verified Instagram account.
The glamorous brunette spoke out just five days after Levine’s wife, supermodel Behati Prinsloo confirmed she is pregnant with the couple’s third child. Prinsloo is seen left showing off her baby bump in Santa Barbara earlier this month
According to Stroh, who had just moved to Los Angeles at the time of their fling, she had ‘naively’ believed that Levine, 43, wasn’t being unfaithful at the time because he had allegedly convinced her that he and his supermodel wife of eight years were no longer together
‘I now realize that was likely a manipulation tactic of his…just hiding in plain sight,’ she added. ‘As soon as I had realized that was not the case, I cut things off with him.
‘In retrospect, I wish I would’ve questioned things more. I wish I wasn’t so naïve, but you know, being naïve is no excuse for what I did in the role I played for this.
‘Again, in no way was I trying to gain sympathy and I fully realize I’m not the victim in this. I’m not the one who is really getting hurt here, it’s Behati and her children. And for that I am so, so, sorry.’
Stroh reiterated that she chose to come forward only after learning one of her friends had allegedly gone to the press with her claims, and she ‘wanted to kill whatever story the tabloid had.’
‘I initially wanted to go in and talk about how remorseful I feel and talk about how embarrassed and disgusted I am with myself. But I didn’t want people to look at it and think she’s playing the victim,’ she said.
‘Something I now realize I didn’t touch on enough was the fact that one of my friends had attempted to sell it. I realized yesterday when they reached out for comment, which is why I was so frantic.’
Hours earlier, Stroh had set off a social media firestorm after taking to TikTok to reveal details of her alleged illicit relationship with Levine for the first time.
The model, who is now based in Los Angeles after studying at the University of Texas, shared screenshots of their flirty exchanges on Instagram, including one bizarre message where Levine asked if he could name his new baby after her.
In a TikTok posted on Monday, Stroh shared screenshots of their flirty exchanges on Instagram, including one where the singer admitted he was mind blown by how ‘hot’ she was after they met for the first time
Stroh claimed the two lost contact after a few months, but said Levine later came back into her life this year when he revealed his wife was expecting their third child and asked if he could name the child Sumner, leaving her horrified
Speaking in a video that has now gone viral, Stroh said she felt compelled to speak publicly after her friend threatened to sell her story to the tabloids
‘Essentially, I was having an affair with a man who is married to a Victoria’s Secret supermodel,’ she said, referring to Levine’s wife Behati, 34, who is now pregnant with the couple’s third child.
‘At the time, I was young and naïve. And I mean, quite frankly, I feel exploited. I wasn’t in the scene like I am now, so I was definitely easily manipulated.’
Stroh, who did not disclose specifics about their encounters, pointed to one Instagram DM between the pair, in which Levine writes: ‘It is unreal how f***ing hot you are. Like it blows my mind.’
‘You are 50 times hotter in person,’ he adds.
According to Stroh, who has over 338,000 followers on Instagram, she and Levine were ‘seeing each other for about a year’, until the two lost contact ‘over a period of months.’
However, the 43-year-old musician would later get back in touch in June this year to share the news that he was expecting another child with his wife of eight years, she claimed.
And to her astonishment, the heavily tattooed singer asked if he could name the child Sumner if it turned out to be a boy – a request that Stroh said left her horrified.
‘Ok serious question. I’m having another baby and if it’s [a] boy I really wanna name it Sumner. You ok with that? DEAD serious,’ Levine said, according to a screenshot of the conversation.
Stroh said she felt like she was ‘in hell,’ upon reading the odd message.

Stroh did not specify the exact timeline of the affair, however, the allegations have emerged just five days after Prinsloo confirmed her pregnancy on Instagram post (pictured) amid heavy speculation
‘I mean my morals were unknowingly compromised. I was completely manipulated,’ she said in the TikTok video that has now gone viral.
She explained that she never planned on addressing the situation in such a public manner and was aware of the consequences of being ‘tied to a story like this.’
Stroh said it was only after her friend whom she had confided in about the affair, and to whom she had sent the screenshots, threatened to take her story public – that was she left determined to tell her story herself.
‘I wanted to handle this privately. I never wanted to come forward because obviously I know the implications that come with doing what I do, making money the way I do, and being an Instagram model,’ she added.
‘I had sent some screenshots recklessly to a few friends I thought I trusted and one of them had attempted to sell to a tabloid…So here I am.’
Stroh did not provide an exact timeline of the affair, however, the allegations have emerged just five days after Prinsloo confirmed her pregnancy on an Instagram post amid heavy speculation.
Earlier this month, Prinsloo and Levine were snapped having lunch together in Santa Barbara, where the soon-to-be mother-of-three had her burgeoning baby bump on full display.
Levine was once almost as famous for his string of model girlfriends as he is for his music and sex appeal before tying the knot with Prinsloo in 2014. The Namibian model is seen walking the runway at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show in 2010
According to Sumner, Levine revealed he is expecting his third child with Prinsloo early next year
The couple (pictured in 2018) already have two daughters Dusty Rose, four, and Gio Grace, three
She is believed to have already been expecting in July, when the couple celebrated were seen celebrating their eighth wedding anniversary during a trip to Maui, Hawaii.
Levine, however, was nowhere to be seen in the photos, while Prinsloo was photographed glum-faced and alone on the beach.
Levine was once almost as famous for his string of model girlfriends as he is for his music and sex appeal before tying the knot with Prinsloo in 2014.
Until he married Prinsloo in a romantic ceremony in Cabo San Lucas in July 2014, Levine had been the ultimate playboy with a dating career that included Victoria’s Secret models Anne Vyalitsana and Nina Agdal, as well as a rumored fling with Jessica Simpson.
The couple now have two daughters Dusty Rose, four, and Gio Grace, three and founded tequila brand Calirosa in 2021.
Prior to Sumner’s revelations, the couple appeared to have one of the strongest marriages in showbusiness but cracks have been emerging in recent weeks.
In May, the couple sold their $51million 10-bedroom, 14-bathroom home in Pacific Palisades, California.
