“I don’t know who it is, I don’t know why we gotta talk about this chick and bring all his business in there,” the Sister Act icon retorted, again trying to put the topic to rest. “Why do we have to participate? Why is The View participating? That’s what I wanna know.”
Goldberg’s comments come one day after Levine addressed TikToker Sumner Stroh’s claims that the pair carried out a roughly year-long affair amid the “She Will Be Loved” singer’s marriage to Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo. Though the musician denied any physical interactions, he admitted that he “crossed the line” when it came to his online interaction.
"I used poor judgment in speaking with anyone other than my wife in ANY kind of flirtatious manner," Levine explained in an Instagram post shared on Tuesday, September 20. "I did not have an affair, nevertheless, I crossed the line during a regrettable period of my life,” he continued, adding that "in certain instances it became inappropriate.”
"I have addressed that and taken proactive steps to remedy this with my family,” the former reality tv judge explained.
"My wife and my family is all I care about in this world," he continued. "To be this naïve 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."
