Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine walked the stage to play in Las Vegas for the first time since his sexting incident, and he had his pregnant wife Behati Prinsloo beside him as he returned to the spotlight after many women accused him of sending them inappropriate messages.
On Saturday, October 1, the 43-year-old singer-songwriter performed with his dependable band at The Event, the annual fundraising extravaganza for the Shaquille O’Neal Foundation.
Just a few weeks after the father-of-two acknowledged initiating flirtatious text conversations to 23-year-old model Sumner Stroh, his pregnant wife Behati Prinsloo, 34, was photographed backstage.
Adam Levine told Sumner in one of the screenshots of their conversation that he would like to name the child his wife is pregnant after Sumner.
Following Sumner’s admission, additional women came forward to post screenshots of the offensive chats Levine had sent to them.
Observers said that Behati Prinsloo, Adam’s wife, appeared to be in “excellent spirits” during the event despite the sexting incident.
It follows the long-term couple’s previous Tuesday sighting boarding a private flight out of Santa Barbara with their two kids, Gio Grace, 4, and Dusty Rose, 5, who they already share.
Stars in attendant include Flavor Flav, Rob Gronkowski, Camille Kostek, and Logan Paul attended the event.
While speaking at the occasion, O’Neal, who had earlier lauded Levine despite the scandal, publicly declared his support for the troubled singer.
The NBA icon, who previously wed Shaunie Henderson in 2002 and divorced her in 2011, remarked;
“Adam Levine is a friend of mine from [a long] time ago. I always say to myself, you know, I cannot be a hypocrite.
“Now, I wasn’t the greatest husband in the world, so just because I have a large platform right now doesn’t give me the right to bash other people. He’s great, he’s doing something for the children, he’s always been like that. I’m happy for him. And I wish him luck.”
