Levine stretched with yogi


IS he a downward-facing dog?

Adam Levine ’s former yoga instructor claims she, too, was a recipient of a flirty text from the Maroon 5 frontman. Alanna Zabel

— the fourth woman to claim Levine made inappropri­ate passes at them — took to her Instagram Stories on Tuesday to “let it all out.” “Long overdue #ExposeAdam­Levine,” she captioned her post.

Zabel, who said she worked for the singer from 2007 to 2010, alleged he told pals she had the “best ass in town and it was cute.”

She added that “one day he texted me saying, ‘I want to spend the day with you naked.’ ” Zabel alleged that the shocking message led to a physical altercatio­n with her then-boyfriend.

But, The Post’s Eileen Reslen reports, the yogi then appeared to come to Levine’s defense. “Firstly, Adam’s text was not wrong [in my opinion],” she wrote in the caption of a video of her and Levine practicing yoga. She added, “Adam was not responsibl­e for my abusive ex boyfriend, or his actions.”

Zabel explained she decided to come forward because she was “disappoint­ed” by the singer’s response to other allegation­s about him. “When you look at the Cause and Effect that came from Adam’s one text, either flirtatiou­s or mis-sent, we can see how cautious and mindful we should be with our actions, and how they affect others,” she wrote. Reps for Levine declined to comment. The rock star is under fire for allegedly sending inappropri­ate messages to women while married to Behati Prinsloo. The spouses were seen yesterday holding hands.

The first accuser, Sumner Stroh, went viral for posting suggestive messages she says Levine sent her and saying she felt “exploited” after allegedly having an affair with him. Levine said in a statement he “did not have an affair,” but “crossed the line during a regrettabl­e period of my life.” Two more women have called out the “Girls Like You” singer for sending them similarly indelicate messages.
