Adam Levine's former yoga teacher has spoken out about working with the singer, having accused him of sending an inappropriate text message.

In an Instagram Story earlier this week, Alanna Zabel claimed that the Maroon 5 frontman sent her a flirtatious text and then cut her off despite their plan for her to accompany the band on their upcoming tour.

Her allegations come after four other women claim the singer sent them inappropriate messages. The 43-year-old musician is currently expecting his third child with his wife of eight years, Victoria's Secret model Behati Prinsloo.

"Long overdue #ExposeAdamLevine. I was his yoga teacher for a few years from 2007-10. He often said that he told his friends his yoga teacher had the best a** in town and it was cute," Zabel began.

"One day he texted me saying: ''I want to spend the day with you naked.' I was in the bath but my jealous ex saw it and went into a rage," the yoga teacher claimed.

Zabel claims that she explained the strange message to her ex by saying it must have been intended for Levine's then-girlfriend, Rebecca Ginos, a cocktail waitress he dated between 2006 and 2009, per the Daily Mail.

"I texted Adam to ask if that was the case. Adam didn't reply...and my ex became violent, breaking my wrist," she wrote.

Zabel went on to describe the event as a "massive life-changing, destructive moment." Meanwhile, she claimed: "when I told Adam he ignored it, never apologized."

In a recent interview with the Daily Mail, the 49-year-old yoga instructor said she decided to speak out against Levine after seeing several other women come forwards.

"I saw him in a completely different light and decided it was finally time to share this," she told the outlet, adding: "If I wanted my fifteen minutes of fame, I would have gone public with this a very long time ago."

"It's simple. Don't be a jerk," Zabel told the outlet. "Don't treat women like they are disposable, or that their value is solely based on their looks, and for God's sake please be a role model for your young girls. Children learn by what they see far more than what they're told."

Meanwhile, Levine responded to the wave of allegations in a statement shared to his Instagram story earlier this week.

"A lot is being said about me right now and I want to clear the air," the Maroon 5 frontman wrote.

"I used poor judgement in speaking with anyone other than my wife in ANY kind of flirtatious manner. I did not have an affair, nevertheless, I crossed the line during a regrettable period in my life," he continued.

Levine added that "in certain instances" his behavior "became inappropriate", but that he has "addressed that" and "taken proactive steps to remedy this with [his] family".

"My wife and my family is all I care about in this world. To be this naive 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. I take full responsibility," the statement concluded.
