Emily Ratajkowski has spoken out concerning the “cheating” scandal surrounding Adam Levine.
On Monday (19 September), 23-year-old mannequin Sumner Stroh alleged on TikTookay that she had an affair with Levine and that he requested to call his new child after her.
“I was having an affair with a man who’s married to a Victoria’s Secret model,” she started within the clip. “At the time, I was young, I was naive, and, I mean, quite frankly, I feel exploited.”
While she didn’t make clear how way back the alleged relationship occurred, she went on to assert that the person in query was the Maroon 5 frontman and that the connection lasted for a few yr.
Following Stroh’s video, Levine addressed and denied the dishonest allegations on Tuesday (20 September) in an announcement posted to his Instagram story.
On the identical day, Ratajkowski posted a TikTookay video that appeared to deal with the Levine scandal.
“I don’t understand why we continue to blame women for men’s mistakes, especially when you’re talking about 20-something-year-old women dealing with men in positions of power who are twice their age,” the supermodel, who just lately filed for divorce along with her husband Sebastian Bear-McClard following dishonest claims, stated.
She continued: “The power dynamic is so skewed, it’s ridiculous. It’s predatory. It’s manipulative.

“If you’re the one in a relationship, you are the one who’s obligated to be loyal.”
In a second video, the Inamorata founder added: “I think a huge problem in our culture right now is that we just say, ‘Oh, men are monsters, they’re terrible, they’re horrible.’
“We don’t hold them accountable and then we blame other women.
“We ask women to adjust their behavior instead of just saying men need to change their behaviour. It’s sexism. It’s classic misogyny.”
In his Tuesday assertion, Levine, who’s anticipating his third little one with spouse Behati Prinsloo, stated: “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.”
He went on say that “in certain instances, it became inappropriate” and that he has “addressed that” and “taken proactive steps to remedy this with [his] family”.
“My wife and my family is all I care about in this world,” he continued. “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. I will never make it again. I take full responsibility.”
