Adam Levine plans to get back on the road with his band Maroon 5 as he tries to end his new sexting scandal despite a fifth woman coming forward with claims.
The 43-year-old Maroon 5 frontman will front the band for an upcoming show in Las Vegas, sources familiar with the matter told TMZ.
DailyMail.com exclusively revealed yesterday how 21-year-old Alabama college student Ashley Russell said she also received inappropriate messages from Levin, who is married to Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo.
The show, scheduled for Oct. 1 and dubbed The Event, is a fundraiser organized by the Shaquille O’Neal Foundation.
On the road again: Adam Levine, 43, will try to end the sexting scandal by performing with his band Maroon 5 in Las Vegas next month, TMZ reported Thursday; seen in November 2021 in West Hollywood
The organization works with Boys & Girls Clubs and community organizations in schools to help underserved children.
Adam and the band will perform at the MGM Grand.
The singer probably won’t have to deal with questions about his latest sexting scandal, as the benefit will reportedly not have a red carpet — like last year — meaning he can enter and exit in a low-key manner.
Despite the ongoing DM scandal, sources also claimed that Adam will continue to perform with his band.
For a cause: The show, scheduled for Oct. 1 and dubbed “The Event,” is a fundraiser for the Shaquille O’Neal Foundation, which helps underserved children; seen in October 2021 in Los Angeles
The issues: Levin is married to Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo, 34, and has two young children with her, but this week he denied the affair, admitting he “crossed the line” with inappropriate DMs to another woman; seen in November 2021
The hitmaker will still be fulfilling all of his previous commitments, which appear to include Maroon 5’s upcoming tour.
The band plans to tour Asia beginning in late November before returning to the US for a New Year’s Eve show in Palm Springs, California.
Adam, who is married to model Behati Prinsloo, 34, has been inundated with allegations that he sent inappropriate sexual messages to several women.
The claims come as Behati is pregnant with their third child. The couple already have two daughters: six-year-old Dusty Rose and four-year-old Gio Grace.
Adam’s troubles surrounding the cheating and sexting scandal began when 23-year-old model Sumner Straw revealed on social media that she had a year-long affair with the singer after he claimed his marriage was on the way out.
She said they were together in 2021, after she graduated from college.
“At the time, I was young, naive and, frankly, I felt exploited,” she said in a video released Monday. “I wasn’t on the ‘scene’ like I am now, so I was definitely very easily manipulated.”
She claimed that after Behati’s pregnancy was announced, suggesting the relationship was on stronger footing than she had realized, Adam said Sumner potentially wanted to name the baby after her.
Telling the truth: Adam’s cheating and sexting scandals began when 23-year-old social media model Sumner Straw revealed they had a year-long affair that began last year. She also provided sexts allegedly sent by Levin
Half denial: Levine denied ever having an affair but admitted his posts were ‘inappropriate’
Adam has since denied the model’s cheating claims, although he admitted his messages and sex with her “crossed the line”.
Since then, other women have alleged that Levin sent them flirtatious messages.
Ashley Russell, a 21-year-old student at Auburn University in Alabama, spoke exclusively to DailyMail.com on Wednesday to detail her interactions with the singer.
She said the former Voice coach began sending her flirtatious messages in March, many of them related to her training, although the messages dried up by the end of the month, when she warned him he might get caught.
“I checked every time I posted a story, which was every day, and he always looked at it,” Russell said. “He mostly likes stories about pops and will always respond with something to do with feet or a day at the gym.”
Russell also provided screenshots of what appeared to be a message notification from Levine’s Instagram account.
On Wednesday, Adam was seen in Santa Barbara with Behati and their children, but so far his wife has not addressed his scandal.
Fifth woman: Ashley Russell, 21, who runs a health and fitness Instagram account, told DailyMail.com how Adam Levine suddenly started messaging her after he allegedly stumbled across her profile in March.
Receipts: Russell also provided screenshots of what appeared to be a message notification from Levine’s Instagram account. Several other women also said Levin sent them flirtatious messages
