Chance the Rapper has received backlash after a video showed him doing a steamy dance with a woman at Carnival 2023 in Jamaica.
The 30-year-old rapper – who has been married to wife Kirsten Corley, 29, since 2019 – was featured in a video shared on Instagram by model Mela Millz.
The clip showed Mela twerkin’ on the father-of-two, as he leaned back and slapped her back.
The musician – who has been busy as one of the coaches for The Voice – was shirtless for the occasion and wore tie-dye shorts, a hat and a Prada bag.
Meanwhile, Mela donned traditional fancy dress and showed off her incredible physique in a skimpy, colorful bra and thong.

Fans in the comments had mixed reactions, with many pointing out that the Voice coach – born Chancellor Johnathan Bennett – is married.
However, others didn’t see the problem with the video and attributed it to the hip-hop star just enjoying his 30th birthday, which he celebrated on Sunday.
“Isn’t he married?” one wondered.
“He left his wife at home on his birthday to come here,” said another.
“Imagine what he does when there are no cameras around,” another commenter mused.
But others came to his rescue, explaining that dancing and letting go is part of the carnival tradition and should be taken lightly.
“Obviously some of you don’t know anything about CARNIVAL or the CULTURE,” one wrote.
The is he not married questions are (laughing crying emoji). Carnival culture is to drink wine and move on. Nothing personal. Just people having fun.’

“This is absolutely not inappropriate, unless he and his wife were having a conversation and she didn’t want him to be there. If you are present, you can dance and have fun. That’s the point of the event,” another person shared.
Meanwhile, Millz took to Twitter on Tuesday and wrote “You’re all doing too much right now,” along with crying and laughing emojis.
She also replied to another user who joked that she was Chance’s “external wife,” writing, “It never will be.”
Chance and Corley married in 2019 at The Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach, CA in front of 150 friends and family, including Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
Their nuptials came just months after Chance got down on one knee and proposed at a 4th of July barbecue with their friends and family.
Chance and his wife met in 2003 and started dating romantically about 10 years later.
The pair called it quits in 2016, but they eventually patched things back together in July 2018.
The couple shares two daughters: 7-year-old Kensli and 3-year-old Marli.
