Levine went on to date mannequin Angela Bellotte in 2009 earlier than assembly Vyalitsyna, whom he would finally go on to date for 2 years.
“He thought I was a stuck-up bitch and I kind of thought he was a d-bag musician” once they first met, Vyalitsyna advised Stern when she sat in on the interview with Levine in 2012.
Some of which will have been Levine defending himself. It’s not as if he is by no means been rejected.
“I was super-hung-up on this girl, and I just could not get her to pay attention to me,” he told Rolling Stone in 2007, recalling the inspiration for “Won’t Go Home Without You.” “I was in the driveway, having just gotten home from some rejection, and I said, ‘I’ve got to write a song that’s going to make this girl like me.”
That being stated, he added, “She doesn’t know it’s about her. I ended up dating her best friend for a year and a half.”
