Adam Levine’s former yoga instructor, the fourth of five women to accuse the married Maroon 5 frontman of sending flirty messages, claims he treated her like “used trash.”
via Daily Mail:
‘This isn’t about a love affair or a salacious text, it’s about being a decent human being. Friends don’t treat each other like used trash, and that’s how he treated me,’ Alanna Zabel, 49, tells DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview.
Zabel, who trained the Maroon 5 frontman from 2007 to 2010, alleges Levine said he wanted ‘to spend the day with you naked’ and bragged to his friends about how she had ‘the best a** in town and it was cute.’
She claims her then-boyfriend saw the message, became violent and flew into a jealous rage, snapping her wrist.
‘[Levine]knew what I was going through with my then-boyfriend who became abusive, and instead of responding to my text, he simply cut me off,’ she said.
Zabel is the founder of AZ I AM Yoga, a yoga and wellness center in Santa Monica, and the author of As I Am: Where Spirituality Meets Reality. She has a long list of celebrity clients.
While Zabel acknowledges that she and Adam were not in a romantic relationship, she explained that the two had become close friends after working privately together for several years.
Zabel says she made the decision to speak out about Levine after seeing several other women come forward.
‘When I found out that Adam had asked this influencer if he could name his baby after her, I saw him in a completely different light and decided it was finally time to share this,’ she said. ‘If I wanted my fifteen minutes of fame, I would have gone public with this a very long time ago.
‘Harboring this pain for as long as I have has taken a lot of valuable energy to hold onto, and in order to heal we need to let them go.’
At the time, Zabel was in preparations to join Maroon 5 on tour as their yoga instructor for three months, when Adam abruptly pulled the plug with no apology.
Who’s next to come forward? Adam’s dentist?
