Trou­ble in Par­adise The pair are on the brink fol­low­ing two years of lows for the moody Ma­roon 5 singer.

"He's be­ing Mr. Moody. It’s caused fric­tion.” — a friend tells Star

ADAM Levine has had a dif­fi­cult cou­ple of years, and his wife, Be­hati Prinsloo, is feel­ing it. The Ma­roon 5 front­man and The Voice coach has be­come a “to­tal night­mare” to live with, a source tells Star, be­cause of his roller­coaster moods. The model is re­port­edly des­per­ate for a fresh start for her and Adam and their two young daughters, Dusty Rose, al­most 3, and Gio Grace, 18 months.

MOV­ING OUT

In May the cou­ple de­cided to sell their 10,000-square-foot Bev­erly Hills man­sion — af­ter in­hab­it­ing and ren­o­vat­ing the palace for just a year — to Ellen DeGeneres and Por­tia de Rossi for $45 mil­lion. “The sale doesn’t bode well for Adam and Be­hati,” the source says. “They only lived in the place for a year, so it must’ve been bad for it to seem so tar­nished.” Seek­ing a change driven by Adam, the cou­ple are said to be mov­ing into the for­mer home of Jen­nifer Gar­ner and Ben Af­fleck in Pa­cific Palisades.

SERIES OF SET­BACKS

Adam’s dark moods started back in 2017, when his beloved man­ager, Jordan Feldstein, brother of Jonah Hill, died un­ex­pect­edly of a blood clot in his leg. “They were like broth­ers, and Adam has mourned him as if he were fam­ily,” a source says. “Be­hati tried her best to help him through his grief, but the whole thing was an aw­ful shock to his sys­tem.” Things went from bad to worse for Adam af­ter his much-slammed Su­per Bowl half­time show this year. “He’s a very proud guy, so when he was roasted for the Su­per Bowl ap­pear­ance, he took it to heart,” the in­sider says. Then in May, af­ter dif­fi­cult ne­go­ti­a­tions, Adam an­nounced he’d be ex­it­ing The Voice, the hit show he helped launch 16 sea­sons ago. The con­sec­u­tive lows of late have been “hugely stress­ful,” and the ten­sion on their mar­riage is pal­pa­ble.

A NEW START?

Be­tween mov­ing his fam­ily to a new neigh­bor­hood in L.A. and de­part­ing The Voice, Adam’s de­ter­mined to rein­vent him­self, sources say. But where does that leave Be­hati? While she’s been end­lessly sup­port­ive and is try­ing to re­main patient, friends say, she’s feel­ing ne­glected and dis­con­tent. “She’s suf­fered al­most as much as he has from the lat­est lows in his life. She hoped that when he came out of it, he’d fo­cus more at­ten­tion on her, but so far, no dice.”

Sources worry that the dis­tance cre­ated could spell dis­as­ter for the cou­ple. “It feels like a lot is chang­ing be­tween them, and they’re headed on dif­fer­ent paths,” says one. “But every­one’s hop­ing they can ride out this bad patch — and soon.”
