The view co-host Sunny Hostin has seemingly apologized to Adam Levine for having an alleged affair for being a “rockstar”.
Levine, 43, made headlines this week after Instagram model Sumner Stroh, 23, claimed she was having an affair with the singer for a year and that he asked to name his new baby after her.
Stroh shared multiple screenshots of alleged conversations she had with Levine – who is married to model Behati Prinsloo – showing their relationship.
On Tuesday (September 20), the Maroon 5 frontman denied the charges of cheating, writing in a statement that he was “not having an affair” but “crossed the line.”
Levine’s personal life became a topic of discussion on the American talk show The viewwith Hostin asking, “Why go on Instagram or social media and bring all that stuff out?”
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg expressed her disinterest in the topic, replying, “I don’t know. That’s why I don’t even want to talk about it. Why should we participate? Why is The view participate? That’s what I want to know.”
Fellow co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin added: “Men in the public eye, with respect for the Instagram models out there, are going for these women whose careers have been built around fame and celebrity and they think they won’t change right away. and put it there.”
However, Hostin said she believes “men go for the low hanging fruit” before defending Levine’s alleged actions.
“It’s not like he said, ‘Meet me at five so we can get started.’ It wasn’t like that,” she said. “It was an emotional deception — one that I would burn all of Manny’s [Emmanuel, Hostin’s husband] clothes for. But this is different.”
She continued: “He made a mistake and he is a rock star.”
While Levine has been in a relationship with Prinsloo since 2012, the “She Will Be Loved” singer admitted to cheating in his previous relationships in a 2009 interview.
Levine and Prinsloo have been married since 2014. The couple has two daughters, ages four and five, and announced earlier this month that they were expecting their third child together.
