Here’s Adam’s statement in full: “A lot is being said about me right now and I want to clear the air. I used poor judgement 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 in my life. In certain instances it became inappropriate; I have addressed that and taken proactive steps to remedy this with my family.

“My wife and my family is all I care about in this world. To be this naive and stupid enough to risk the only thing that truly matters to me was the greatest mistake I could ever make.”

He finished his statement: “I will never make it again. I take full responsibility. We will get through it. And we will get through it together.”

It comes hours after Stroh took to TikTok to claim they had an affair ‘for a year’, showing screenshots of DMs allegedly from the singer which read: “It is unreal how f*****g hot you are. Like it blows my mind.”

She claimed they stopped talking for a few months before he reached out in her DMs, showing a screenshot from 1st June, and a message asking: “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.”

Stroh added she didn’t want to take their ‘affair’ public but said a friend had threatened to take the story public.

Meanwhile, Levine’s wife Behati announced she’s pregnant with their third child just days prior.
