Singer Adam Levine struggled to win over his Russian girlfriend's mother because she disapproved of his multiple tattoos.
The Maroon 5 frontman has been dating Victoria's Secret stunner Anne Vyalitsyna since last year, but he admits his body art, which covers his arms and torso, wasn't too popular with the blonde beauty's mom.
Levine tells Elle magazine, "The tattoos were a concern - her mom didn't love them. They're culturally accepted here, but it's different in Russia."
And the "Moves Like Jagger" hitmaker is likely to cause Vyalitsyna's mother further cause for concern after stripping off to pose nude with his lover for Vogue Russia magazine.
