(UPDATE: 9/22/2022 AT 10:30 A.M. ET): A fifth woman came forward with accusations against Adam on Sept. 21. Ashley Russell, a 21-year-old fitness instructor, told DailyMail that Adam was messaging her on Instagram as early as this year. She also alleged that he would regularly watch her Stories on Instagram and like her posts. Ashley claimed that Adam would delete the messages that he sent her after she read them, and their alleged interactions went on for about a month. Amidst the latest accusations, Adam and his wife, Behati Prinsloo, have put on a united front on more than one public outing.
(ORIGINAL STORY): Shortly after Adam Levine denied having an affair with OnlyFans model Sumner Stroh, who publicly shared “inappropriate” direct messages that he allegedly sent to her on social media, more women have come forward, accusing him of sending flirty messages to them, too.
First, a comedian named Maryka posted screengrabs on Instagram on Sept. 20 that show an alleged conversation she had with the Maroon 5 frontman, during which he allegedly told her, “Distract yourself by f***ing with me!” She also shared an alleged video that Adam sent her, in which he says, “I’m stupid”. However, it’s unclear why he’s saying that.
Another woman named Alyson Rosef also posted a bunch of direct messages that were allegedly sent to her by Adam. “I shouldn’t be talking to you you know (right)?”, he allegedly asked in one of the messages shared online. Later in the messages, she appears to have told Adam that she only likes metal music, to which he allegedly responded, “Said no hot chicks ever other than you.” While Alyson was hesitant to come forward at first, she said she finally decided to because she feels bad for Adam’s pregnant wife, Behati Prinsloo, who he already shares two children with.
Finally, Tuesday night, yet another woman came forward alleging that Adam had sent her a “flirtatious text” between 2007 and 2010 — long before Adam’s 2014 marriage to Behati. The woman, named Alanna Zabel, took to Instagram stories and wrote, “Long overdue #ExposeAdamLevine. I was his yoga teacher for a few years from 2007-2010. He often said that he told his friends his yoga teacher had the best a** in town and it was cute.” Alanna also claimed, “One day he texted me saying: ‘I want to spend the day with you naked. I was in the bath but my jealous ex saw it and went into a rage.”
She then reportedly asked the musician if he intended to send that text message to his then alleged girlfriend “Becky”, to which Adam did not reply. The yoga instructor claimed that her then-boyfriend got “violent” due to Adam’s alleged text message. “My ex became violent, breaking my wrist,” Zabel said. “Massive life changing, destructive moment, and when I told Adam he ignored it, never apologized, removed me from the upcoming tour and iced me out during one of the most devastating times of my life.”
HollywoodLife reached out to Adam’s rep about these new accusations, but we have not yet gotten a response. The new accusations come just hours after Sumner Stroh first exposed alleged messages she received from Adam. She claims she had an affair with Adam, but the singer denied cheating on Behati in a statement shared on Sept. 20. He did, however, confess to acting “inappropriate”.
In his statement, Adam said, “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 of my life.”
