“I used poor judgment in speaking in any flirtatious manner with anyone other than my wife,” Levine wrote. “I didn’t have an affair, yet, I crossed the border during a regrettable period in my life.”
“At the time, I was young, I was gullible and, frankly, I felt exploited,” Stroh said.
That said, Levine contacted her after things ended with the request.
“He said, ‘Okay, serious question. I have another child and if this is it’ [a] Boy do I really want to name it Sumner,” she said, reading the purported message aloud. “You okay with that? Too serious.”
Levine and his model wife of eight years recently revealed that they are expecting their third child.
“In some cases this has become inappropriate; I have addressed this and have taken proactive steps to address it with my family,” Levine wrote in her statement.
He wrote, “My wife and my family are the only ones I care about in this world. For being this naive and stupid the only thing that really mattered to me was the biggest mistake I could have ever made. ” “I’ll never make it again. I take full responsibility. We’ll get through this. And we’ll get through this together.”
CNN has reached out to Levine’s representative for further comment.
