A spokesperson for Maroon 5 said: ‘We are deeply devastated by this disappointing news. As we learn more, we are looking at this very seriously.

Madden was with James ‘Bingo’ Gubelmann, the former boyfriend of Ivanka Trump, outside a bar in New York when police claim they saw Madden hand him a vial of drugs.

At the time, Madden’s lawyer told the New York Daily News that it was Gubelmann who had the cocaine all along, and that his client never even touched the vial.

‘He was purely innocent. He didn’t possess any narcotics. The individual he was with did but he didn’t.’

He then added; ‘He’s a good guy. He’s not somebody who has ever had any interaction with the law before.’

Madden agreed to do one day of community service after appearing in Manhattan Criminal Court and his record was expunged six months later. 

Gubelmann meanwhile agreed to enter a treatment readiness program. 

Madden has been playing with Adam Levine and Maroon 5 since their early days. He also played with the band in the 1990s, before they found fame and were known as Kara’s Flowers.
