For a few days Adam Levine was quietly being investigated for child abuse after an anonymous tipster told police he'd hit his daughter. The whole thing turned out to be totally false.
TMZ reported that Los Angeles Police's Juvenile Division got a tip last week that claimed the Maroon 5 frontman hit his one-month-old baby girl in the face. The tipster also "alluded to allegations of domestic violence," against his wife Behati Prinsloo, saying that he "struck his wife so hard it knocked her to the ground."
Police, of course, did their due diligence and investigated that claim, even visiting the home to speak to Adam and Behati and to check on their little girl, Dusty Rose Levine. They found no injuries on Behati or Dusty and the vicious claim was determined to be completely unfounded.
Per TMZ, police officially closed the door on the case and do not plan to revisit it, as it simply wasn't true.
For Adam and Behati, through no fault of their own, the false allegation has been the only hiccup in their lives of late. On Sept. 21, the duo welcomed their little angel into their lives.
The "Voice" coach called into On Air With Ryan Seacrest on Oct. 13 and opened up about life as a first-time dad.
"I've been a parent for three weeks; what do I know? I don't know anything, but it's kind of part of the beauty of it, honestly," he said. "There are a lot of instincts, a lot of things that kind of kick in and switch on. It's a beautiful experience."
Shortly after Dusty was born, Adam shared an adorable image of Dusty resting on his chest. In his caption, he simply wrote the date of her birth. Behati posted the same image, writing, "Words can't describe 💗 Dusty Rose Levine 9/21/16."
Neither Adam nor Behati have spoken about being new parents, but the two are obsessed with their little one.
"Behati and Adam are home with Dusty and they are completely attached to her," a source told E! News after Dusty was born.
