Adam did not answer…”

Zabel also defended Levine on Instagram saying he “wasn’t responsible for my abusive ex-boyfriend, or his actions.”

She made her allegations because she was “disappointed” by his response to Stroh’s claims.

“If you look at the cause and effect that came out of Adam’s one text, either flirtatious or misdirected, we can see how careful and thoughtful we need to be with our actions, and how they affect others,” she wrote.

Zabel is one of five women who have accused Levine of sending flirty social media messages after Stroh’s viral TikTok earlier this week.
