The The Real Housewives of New York The alum discussed the cheating rumors on the Sept. 22 episode of her podcast, Just B with Bethenny Frankel.
“Adam Levine is cheating on his wife. He’s a rock star. He’s a world-famous successful musician who’s had a world tour, historical models, and I know it’s shocking that he’s having an affair,” Frankel said sarcastically during the podcast.
The Skinny Girl founder joked that she had “never heard of anything like this” about famous men cheating on their wives, given Levine’s alleged affair with Instagram model Sumner Stroh.
Frankel continued: “Where’s the big news? It’s like, ‘Oh my god, a rock star is cheating on a supermodel!'”
The reality star went on to say that she needs more juicy gossip to “sink her teeth into, because a rock star cheating on a supermodel isn’t going to do that.” She then referred to allegations of sexual abuse and rape against actor Armie Hammer, who was at the center of a social media scandal in 2021 when instant messages allegedly sent by Hammer detailed graphic sexual desire and references to cannibalism. It has been ever since denied these claims.
“It’s a story,” Frankel said. “It needs to be talked about.”
“Everything is so boring. I need more than a tattooed rock star texting models on Instagram. How much more basic can we be?”
Earlier this week more women accused Maroon 5 frontman Levine of allegedly sending them flirtatious messages via Instagram DMs. One Instagram model, Sumner Stroh, does, too she claimed to have had a year-long affair with Levin, who has since denied the claims.
“I had an affair with a man who is married to a Victoria’s Secret model,” Stroh said in a now-viral TikTok posted on Monday. “I was young at the time, I was naive and, frankly, I feel taken advantage of.”
The 23-year-old model shared screenshots of her alleged messages with the singer on Instagram, some of which read: “It’s really unreal how fucking hot you are. As if it occurred to me.” She then shared a second screenshot she claimed Levine sent her after they stopped seeing each other, which read: “Okay, serious question. I’m having another baby and if it’s a boy I’d really like to name him Sumner. Do you agree with that? DEADLY serious,” followed by a single shrug emoji.
Tuesday, Levine of rejected claims he had an affair in a statement posted on his Instagram story.
“There is a lot of talk about me right now and I want to clear the air,” he wrote. “I used poor judgment in speaking to anyone but my wife in any flirtatious manner. I didn’t have an affair, yet I crossed the line at a regrettable time in my life.”
“It has become inappropriate in certain cases; I have addressed this and taken proactive steps to resolve this with my family,” he continued.
“All I care about in this world is my wife and family. Being so naive and stupid enough to risk the only thing that really mattered to me was the biggest mistake I could have made. I’ll never make it again. I take full responsibility. We will get through this. And we will get through this together.”
Levine is currently is expecting her third child with wife Behati Prinsloo. The singer and the Victoria’s Secret model married in 2014 and are already parents to daughters Dusty Rose, five, and Gio Grace, four.
