When on vacation, many of us tend to adapt to the good old saying that goes, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.” With that being said, those who understand the longstanding Caribbean tradition known as Carnival know that it involves lots of dancing, lots of body contact and little to no clothing while it’s all going down.

Given those facts, it would be perfectly understandable for GRAMMY-winning emcee Chance The Rapper to let loose while visiting Jamaica earlier this week for the 2023 Carnival festivities wrapping up in Kingston today. However, his “dirty dancing” with a local woman that’s not his wife ended up opening up the floor for many on social media to criticize his actions being that he’s seemingly a happily married man.

Take a look for yourselves at Chance getting caught in 4K below:

There’s a lot that can be unpacked from the viral nine-second clip. Aside from his female companion’s severe lack of clothing — she’s literally hanging on by a string! — the look they gave at the 0:08-second mark gives the impression that both parties were feeling a little red in the face once the camera was spotted. Those viewing from across the world on social media were quick to question the location of Kirsten Corley, his wife of four years and mother to his two daughters. Some inquired whether or not he was still wearing his ring, hinting at trouble in paradise, while others speculated that Kirsten herself could’ve been the one holding the camera.

“For all we know, his wife could’ve just been off to the side minding her business because it is Carnival,” said Charlamagne Tha God in defense of Chance during the latest episode of The Breakfast Club, further adding, “Have you never been to a strip club with your significant other?” Of course, when asked how he’d feel if his wife was rump-shaking with an award-winning rapper, the radio personality was quick to say, “that’s a totally different discussion.” Yeah…we bet!
