Adam Levine has likely been in misery this past week. (Pun intended.) The Maroon 5 frontman has come under fire after Instagram model Sumner Stroh claimed in a Sept. 19 TikTok that she was in a year-long relationship with Levine, who is married to Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo (yeah, yikes). Levine posted a response to his IG Story on Sept. 20, writing, “I did not have an affair, nevertheless, I crossed the line [by flirting] during a regrettable period in my life.” 

Stroh’s claim led to two more women — influencer Alyson Rosef and comedian Maryka — coming forward on Sept. 21, claiming Levine also flirted with them over Instagram DMs. Two more women, yoga instructor Alanna Zabel and college student Ashley Russell, also claimed they received flirty messages from Levine. (Her Campus reached out to Levine’s team for comment but didn’t hear back by the time of publication.) Oh, and the cherry on top of all the drama: Stroh claims that months after their “relationship” ended, Levine asked Stroh if he could name his next child after her — yeah, major cringe. 

But what also has the Internet cringing (and, OK, laughing) is the screenshots of Levine’s apparent flirtatious messages with Stroh, Rosef, Maryka, Zabel, and Russell. In a now-deleted TikTok video, Rosef revealed screenshots of Levine DMing her, “I shouldn’t be talking to you, you know [that] right 😤?” (The emoji is personally what sends me.) Maryka also took to her Instagram Stories to share screenshots of Levine’s apparent messages, with one that read, “I’m now obsessed with you,” and another that said, “Holy f*ck. Holy f*cking f*ck. That body of yours is insane” (which seems to be Twitter’s favorite). 

Here are some of the funniest memes about Levine’s flirtatious (and albeit, cringey) DMs.
