In recent days, Kim Kardashian has undoubtedly stunned the soccer world. The American socialite next appeared at a Paris Saint-Germain match after her famous visit to the Emirates stadium. But in both instances, their opponents dramatically defeated the side she backed. And it has been dubbed the Kardashian Curse by fans, which is akin to the Drake Curse. The “Drake curse,” a phenomenon in which sports personalities and teams suffer a severe decline in their fortunes after engaging with the rapper, has made the name of the rapper from Canada synonymous with the occurrence.

Due to their apparent consistency in harming even the most successful sportspeople and teams, these curses have become popular internet memes. No matter the odds or prior victories, every athlete or team that the hip-hop celebrity publicly supports wears their shirt or pictures with would unavoidably lose.
Kim Kardashian Curse in Football
Soon, a few major European football clubs might start debating whether to give Kim Kardashian game tickets. The “Kardashian Curse,” which has been bandied around the internet for years, is well-known to fans of American popular culture. Kim Kardashian watched two European football matches during the last week, and even though both of the clubs she backed were playing at home and were expected to win, both ended up losing badly.
Kardashian was photographed on Sunday, March 19, at Parc des Princes in Paris, where she was watching a Ligue 1 game between PSG and Rennes.
Kardashian was spotted sporting a grey PSG jersey with Neymar’s name on the back, showing her support for the local team, who was nine points ahead in the Ligue 1 standings.
While Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe started and completed the entire game, Rennes defeated the hosts 2-0 thanks to goals from Karl Toko Ekambi and Arnaud Kalimuendo-Muinga, a former PSG player, who scored just before halftime.
Kardashian Curse stuck Arsenal
Kim Kardashian was also spotted visiting Emirates Stadium with her son, Saint West, for the Europa League Round of 16 matches between Arsenal and Portuguese club Sporting CP just days before she attended the PSG game.
Arsenal, unfortunately for the hosts, also suffered from the alleged curse. Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal, once again rotated the team with several reserves starting with the aggregate score from the first leg at 1-1. A further 1-1 draw between the two teams resulted in a loss for Arsenal on penalties.

UFC Drake Curse
Due to his propensity to back the loser, the rapper has frequently been charged with jinxing fighters. He placed his first-ever public wager in March 2022, putting a whopping £232,000 ($275,000) on Jorge Masvidal to defeat Colby Covington, but Masvidal lost the game.
Two months later, the rapper wagered £338,000 ($400,000) on Charles Oliveira to lose to Justin Gaethje at UFC 274. Gaethje, however, was defeated in the opening round of the contest.
Although the Drake curse has claimed many victims, one of the most well-known incidents occurred during the UFC 229 weigh-in. Conor McGregor, who was scheduled to face Khabib Nurmagomedov, came out with the rapper wearing an Irish flag. McGregor finally lost the fight to Nurmagomedov, which was unfortunate for him and his supporters.
