"It's been a terrible time for her, especially Behati," the insider said, adding that Adam was "extremely busy with his new stint in Las Vegas" with Maroon 5. (Less than two weeks after Adam's cheating scandal, Maroon 5 canceled their 2023 Las Vegas stint with the Park MGM.) The source continued, "They're just doing their best to be kind and patient with each other as they get through things."
The quotes come after another source told People on Sept. 21, 2022 that Behati is "very upset" by rumors that Adam cheated on her and has asked that his third child, Behati, be named after the woman with who he was allegedly having an affair with. "He has admitted that he went behind her back and behaved inappropriately. He admitted he acted like an idiot. However, she's still very upset," the insider said, adding that Behati is still "100 percent committed to her family." The source continued, "Adam is very understanding of her feelings. He tries his best to make things better. He never wants a divorce." Another source told People that Adam and Behati are aware that every marriage "has its challenges, but Adam knows it was his fault." The source continued, "He's committed to Behati and wants things to work."

A source also told In Touch Weekly at the time that Behati was "taken aback" by the alleged infidelity. "She had no idea it was coming and is desperate," the insider said, adding that the "timing couldn't be worse" given Behati's pregnancy. The source claimed that Behati "wants to believe" Adam's "denial," but she's "absolutely furious" at the rumours. "[She] feels like without fire there's no smoke," the insider said. "They've had their fair share of problems in the past and are trying to move forward."

The report comes after Instagram model Sumner Stroh posted a TikTok video in September 2022 in which she claimed she was having an affair with Adam and he asked that his baby be named after her. "Basically, I was having an affair with a man who is married to a Victoria's Secret model," Sumner said. “I was young then, I was naive. To be honest, I feel taken advantage of. I wasn't in the scene like I am now, so I was definitely very easily manipulated."
Sumner also shared a screenshot of direct messages between her and Adam. "When I saw you in person I was like...I'm fucked," Sumner wrote to Adam, who replied, "You're 50 times hotter in person. And that's who I am." Sumner continued on the TikTok, "Adam and I dated for about a year. After stopping talking to him for a period of months, that's how he came into my life."
Sumner shared another screenshot of a direct message from Adam asking if he and Behati could name their third child after her. "Okay serious question. I'm having another baby and if it's a boy I really want to name him Sumner. Do you agree? DEATH seriously,” Adam wrote. Sumner continued on TikTok, "I was like, 'I'm in hell. I must be in Hell at this point.” My morals were unknowingly compromised. I was completely manipulated.”
Sumner also explained why she went public with her story. "I wanted to clarify this privately. I never wanted to comment because I obviously know the impact of doing what I do, making money and being an Instagram model. So being tied to a story like this, I know the stereotypes," she said. "I had sent some screenshots to some friends I trusted and one of them was trying to sell to a tabloid. So here I am." Sumner wrote on TikTok, "I'm embarrassed that I've been involved with a man with this complete lack of remorse and respect." She also wrote on her Instagram Story, "Consciously many people will try to fill in the blanks with a lot of wrong assumptions. I don't feel like I'm doing any favors considering how that had to play out. It's a lot to digest but hopefully it can at least do some good if the truth comes to light.”

Following Sumner's claims, Adam issued a statement on his Instagram, denying he had an "affair" with Sumner but taking "full responsibility" for his "flirty" behavior toward her while he was married to Behati. "I used poor judgment when speaking to anyone other than my wife for ANY type of flirtation. I didn't have an affair, but I crossed a line at an unfortunate time in my life," he said. “In certain cases it became inappropriate. I have addressed this and taken proactive steps to resolve this with my family.”
He continued, "My wife and family are all I care about in this world. Being naïve and stupid enough to risk the only thing that really matters to me was the biggest mistake I could ever make. I'll never make it again I take full responsibility. We will get through it and we will get through it together.”

A source confirmed to People on September 21, 2022 that "nothing physical happened" between Adam and Sumner. "Physically nothing happened. He swears by it," the insider said. "He texted her and flirted with three women. One of them - she specifically said they have a physical relationship, but he completely denies that to friends. The source also explained that Adam has messaged women outside of his marriage because he craves "female attention." "Why should he do that? He liked the attention," the insider said. "He likes it more than most." The source also claimed Adam began texting women more "during COVID-19" when he was in isolation, though he and Behati were still together. "[They] definitely didn't break up and they didn't take a break," the insider said.
The source also called Adam's request that his and Behati's third child be named "Sumner" showed "very poor judgment" on the part of the Maroon 5 singer. "People don't know what he was thinking," the insider said.
Adam and Behati married in July 2014 after almost two years of dating. They welcomed their first child, a daughter named Dusty Rose, in 2016. Their second child, a daughter named Gio Grace, was born in 2018. It was revealed that Adam and Behati were expecting their third child together after the Victoria's Secret model was photographed with a baby bump in Santa Barbara, California in September 2022. Days later, Behati confirmed the news with an Instagram photo of her and her baby bump. "Recently," she captioned the post.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight in November 2021, Behati revealed that she wants five children with Adam. "We always knew we wanted a second one," she said at the time. "Well, I'm thinking to myself...when I had two babies under the age of 2, I was just like, 'Don't even think about it!' I want five kids too. But don't even think about it." She continued, "Never say never. We want a big family. Who knows? We leave it to fate and what happens. What will happen will happen. So there are no limits.” Behati confirmed to Entertainment Tonight at the time that she and Adam were considering having a third child. "I think it's just where we are in our lives. And with COVID, I've also just seen [my daughters] together, like, "Maybe we should have a third one just to have more kids." Because it was so sweet [to see them together]. But then I don't know. Never say never," she said.
