And another one! The lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist of the famous pop rock band Maroon 5 is accused of sending inappropriate messages to another fitness model.
As reported by the Daily Mail, Ashley Russell is a 21-year-old model from Auburn, Alabama, and is technically the fifth woman to speak about the musician’s flirty messages on social media.
Russell, who has an Instagram account with only 5959 followers, stated that the Sugar singer started watching her stories in March 2022.
“The 43-year-old would soon start liking her posts and sending her direct messages trying to engage in friendly, flirty conversation.”
“He often replied to photos of her working out, particularly those showing off her toned legs and glutes, but would then almost immediately delete the messages after she had read them,” she told Daily Mail.
The College students further said that their friendly exchanges on the platform became awkward over time when Levine started flirting with her.
The fitness enthusiast also shared the screenshots of Adam’s messages that he sent to her from his official Instagram account.
“In a direct message on March 13, Levine appears to banter with the young woman over her fitness routine, saying: ‘Leg day. The most important and the easiest to skip [laughing emoji].’”
“Later in the conversation, he asks: ‘You’re in college, right?’, although the context is unclear. He then sent another message a minute later saying: ‘Nice work on legs. #commitment.”
The 21-year-old said she couldn’t believe it when the Girls Like You singer started interacting with her on Instagram.
“I am a random girl in college, she said. And he is The Adam Levine…. I was like whoa man for real? He is messaging me? I was excited at first but when he started sending the flirty messages, it got weird and I told him that he should stop right away because he could get caught.”
Speaking to the publication, Ashley also said that according to the singer, he found her account on his ‘Explore Page’ and found it intriguing.
“[He would message] almost everyday at night around 10pm my time. I would check every time I posted a story, which was every day, and he always viewed it,” she said.
“He would like mainly like booty stories and would always reply with something to do with leg or booty day at the gym.”
“He said he found me from his Discover Page on Instagram because he is ‘big into fitness’ and I have a fitness account. I knew it was weird, so I wanted to keep it going to see if it got worse.”
“When I told him he was going to get caught DMing girls like me, he stopped texting me.”
The model added that after she told her to stop flirting with her, Levine stopped DMing her but continued watching her stories.
“I think this is the true meaning of disrespect towards a woman. It makes me very sad that he is married and does this immature thing. I wonder what his [feed] looks like… all young women? Very odd to me.”
Ashley Russell is the fifth woman in a row to accuse Adam Levine of sending flirtatious messages on Instagram.
