Fitness influencer and Alabama college student Ashley Russell has come forward to accuse Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine of texting her through Instagram. The influencer revealed that he began sending her messages earlier this year. Russell exposed the father-of-two after four other women shared their own similar experiences with the singer.
Ashley Russell revealed that the Instagram exchanges began on March 13. The 21-year-old claimed that the Moves Like Jagger singer would watch her Instagram stories and message her “almost everyday at night around 10 pm.”
Russell, who was 20 years old when the duo connected online, claimed that she noticed that her Instagram story “was always viewed by him.” She added:
“He would like mainly like booty stories and would always reply with something to do with leg or booty day at the gym.”

Russell revealed that Adam Levine stopped texting her on Instagram after she warned him about getting caught. However, he continued to watch her stories. She also said:
