Adam Levine to play with Maroon 5 in Las Vegas as he tries to shake off sexting scandal


Adam Levine plans to get back on the road with his band Maroon 5 as he tries to put his new sexting scandal behind him.

The Maroon 5 frontman, 43, will front the band at an upcoming show in Las Vegas, sources with direct knowledge said TMZ.

The show, which is scheduled for October 1 and is called “The Event”, is a fundraiser organized by the Shaquille O’Neal Foundation.

The organization works with Boys & Girls Clubs and community organizations in schools to help underserved children.

Adam and the band will be performing at the MGM Grand.

The singer likely won’t have to deal with questions about his latest sexting scandal, as the benefit show will reportedly not have a red carpet – like last year – meaning he can make low-key entrances and exits.

Despite the ongoing DM scandal, sources also claim that Adam will continue with more performances with his band.

Issues: Levine is married to Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo, 34, and shares two young children with her, but he denied having an affair this week, admitting he “crossed the line” with inappropriate DMs to another woman; viewed in November 2021

The hitmaker will still be keeping up with all of his existing commitments, which appears to include an upcoming Maroon 5 tour.

The band is about to tour Asia starting 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 share two daughters: Dusty Rose, six, and Gio Grace, four.

Adam’s cheating and sexting scandal began when social media model Sumner Straw, 23, claimed she had a year-long relationship with the singer after he claimed his marriage was on the verge of falling apart.

She said they were together in 2021 after she graduated from college.

“At the time, I was young, I was 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 claims that after Behati’s pregnancy announcement, suggesting the relationship was on stronger footing than she had been led to believe, Adam then said Sumner wanted to potentially name the child after her.

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 claimed 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 interaction with the singer.

She said the former Voice coach began sending her flirtatious messages in March, many of which were related to her training, although the messages dried up by the end of the month, when she warned him he could be caught.

“I checked every time I posted a story, which was every day, and it was always viewed by him,” Russell said. “He would mainly want butt stories and would always respond with something to do with legs or butt day at the gym.”

Russell also provided screenshots of what appeared to be message notifications 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.
