“It’s been a horrible time for them, Behati especially,” the insider says, noting that the Maroon 5 front man, 43, has been “extremely busy with his new Las Vegas stint” during the tumultuous time.
The pregnant model, 34 — who confirmed in September that she is expecting the couple’s third child — has been seen beside Levine as they weather the storm.
“They’re just doing their best to be kind and patient with each other while they tough things out,” the source adds.
The “Moves Like Jagger” singer made headlines on September 19 after social media influencer Sumner Stroh claimed via TikTok that she’d had a year-long fling with him while he was married to Prinsloo. In the viral video, Stroh further alleged that Levine recently contacted her to ask if he could use her name as the moniker for his and Prinsloo’s unborn child.
The “Sugar” crooner issued a statement one day later and denied that he ever engaged in a physical tryst.
“I used poor judgment in speaking with anyone other than my wife in ANY kind of flirtatious manner,” Levine explained on September 20. “I did not have an affair, nevertheless, I crossed the line during a regrettable period of my life. In certain instances it became inappropriate. I have addressed that and taken proactive steps to remedy this with my family.”
“My wife and my family is all I care about in this world,” Levine’s statement continued. “To be this naive and stupid enough to risk the only thing that truly matters to me was the greatest mistake I could ever make. I will never make it again.”
After Stroh’s TikTok video went viral, four additional women came forward with claims that the American Horror Story alum sent them flirtatious messages.
On Saturday, October 1, the Calirosa cofounder was seen supporting her husband while he performed with Maroon 5 at the MGM Grand Hotel. Prinsloo was spotted watching the gig from the side of the stage, according to multiple reports.
