A hilarious video of Kim Kardashian catching her husband Kanye West checking out Rihanna during 2016’s MTV VMA Awards has gone viral!
In the clip, Kim opens Snapchat to record a video as Rihanna performs. She is turned towards Kanye and away from Rihanna performing on stage. While videoing, Kim notices Kanye’s attention fixated elsewhere. She looks back and realizes Kanye is staring at Rihanna. She quickly stops Snapchatting before turning back and also looking on as Rihanna takes the stage.

Fans have stormed social media with Rihanna’s praises, saying it is her irresistible charm that has a man like Kanye, who is very vocally obsessed with his wife, as captivated by her as the rest of the world. While most fans found the incident hilarious and have made it into a meme, others are angry on Kim Kardashian’s behalf, saying Kanye should have been more respectful and aware of his wife standing next to him.
Others also pointed out that far from being mad at Kanye, Kim was herself videoing Rihanna’s amazing performance and did not seem offended at Kanye’s appreciation of the artist at all.

This is the same awards show where Kanye declared during a speech that he plans to run for President of the United States in 2020. He has since then retracted that claim. Rihanna was given the Video Vanguard award during the show.
Given that Kim recently just celebrated her wedding anniversary with the 41-year-old rapper and the two have made it through quite a few upsets since the 2016 VMA Awards, it seems safe to say that this incident did not come in the way of the two. On his recent album, Kanye has stuck to his usual style of declaring how much he loves his wife.
Kim has also recently posted a slew of tributes to Kanye on her Instagram, showcasing that their relationship is going well. On May 24 she posted for their fourth wedding anniversary, “4 years down and forever to go…. Thank you babe for giving me our family and caring so much about us. Thank you for inspiring me on a daily, I’m so lucky. I can’t wait for forever… Happy Anniversary.”
On June 8, she posted for his birthday, “Happy Birthday babe!!!!! It’s been a wild year but we’re here & life is good! So proud of you dropping back to back albums & fulfilling your dreams. You inspire me to make the impossible always become a reality. Love you.”
On June 17, she posted once again to honor Kanye on Father’s Day. She wrote, “Happy Father’s Day babe. Thanks for being such a good dad to our babies!”
Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and Rihanna recently all attended the Louis Vuitton menswear fashion show in Paris.
