“This isn’t about a love affair or a lusty text, it’s about being a decent human being,” Alanna Zabel, the musician’s personal yogi from 2007 to 2010, told the Daily Mail on Thursday.
“Friends don’t treat each other like used garbage, and that’s how he treated me.”
Earlier this week, Zabel, 49, once publicly accused Levine, 43, of it send her a message that says, “I want to spend the day naked with you.”
Though she thought the message might have been for his girlfriend at the time, Zabel claimed it led to a physical altercation with her then-boyfriend.
At the time, Zabel said she was getting ready to join Maroon 5 on a three-month tour as the band’s yoga instructor, but she claims Levine “ignored”, “never apologized” for sending her message about what happened. the “flirty lyrics” and “removed” her from the gig.
“I felt like we cared about each other and he helped me through a very troubling time,” she told the Mail.
The first Levine accuser, named an Instagram model Summer Strohwent viral on Monday claimed she was having an affair with the singer — whose wife, Behati Prinsloo, is pregnant with their third child — as recently as last year.
The 23-year-old claimed that Levine came back into her life to ask if he would name his soon-to-be son after her. Although the “Girls Like You” crooner admitted to “crossing the line,” he said physical cheating denied on the Victoria’s Secret Angel, 34.
“When I found out that Adam had asked this influencer if he could name his baby after her, I saw him in a very different light and decided it was finally time to share,” Zabel explains of the allegation.
“If I had wanted my 15 minutes of fame, I would have announced this a long time ago.”
She hopes the musician will learn from his now very public mistakes.
“It’s easy. Don’t be a jerk,” she said. “Don’t treat women like they’re disposable items or that their worth is based solely on their looks. And for God’s sake, please be a role model for your young girls. Kids learn a lot more through what they see rather than what they are told.”
Levine has not yet responded to Zabel’s allegations, nor has he responded to Page Six’s request for comment.
