Was Kim Kardashian a ‘football curse’ for both Arsenal & Paris Saint-Germain?

I believe in sports curses, while also acknowledging that many sports curses are just a fancy way to blame women for men’s failings. This week, I believe that Kim Kardashian is a football curse. I don’t know what’s gotten into Kim recently, but she took her son Saint to two different football/soccer games within a few days. First, she went to the Arsenal match… and Arsenal lost. Then she went to see Paris Saint-Germain in Paris, and PSG lost too. I’ll let ESPN explain the Kardashian Kurse:

Paris Saint-Germain are no strangers to welcoming incredibly famous faces to the Parc des Princes — like Beyonce, Jay-Z, Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio to name but a few — and last weekend was no exception as the Ligue 1 leaders played host to Rennes on Sunday evening with Kim Kardashian in the crowd. The star of the reality show “The Kardashians” joined the ever-increasing roster of celebrity PSG fans as she attended the game with her 7-year-old son, Saint, and a few of his friends.

The group, which also included Kardashian’s half-sister, Kendall Jenner, were all treated to pitchside access before the match kicked off as the club welcomed their special guest.

League leaders PSG had previously earned 35 points from a possible 39 at home in the league this season and thus went into the game as strong favourites. However, coach Christophe Galtier’s side fell to a shock 2-0 defeat on their own turf. Prior to the Rennes upset, Les Parisiens had gone 35 matches unbeaten at home in Ligue 1 in a commanding run that stretched back to April 20.

The defeat also ended an impressive personal run for Lionel Messi, who had never lost a single home game in over 700 days since signing for PSG in August of 2021. That was until Kim K came to town.

Just three days before watching PSG suffer a surprise defeat, the 42-year-old TV personality and her family took in a game at Arsenal — and witnessed the Premier League leaders get eliminated from the Europa League by Sporting CP.

Yes, I believe in this specific curse. If it was just Arsenal or just PSG, I would have my doubts. But these two teams losing while Kim is in the stands? No, she’s a curse. Now, I do think it’s funny that it appears that Kim is the “soccer mom” for a group of Saint’s friends too. Like, she’s taking these kids around Europe to watch football matches and it must be like herding cats with kids that age (meanwhile, Kim was seen with a glass of wine at the PSG match). The kids got to meet Kylian Mbappe, who was so lovely with Saint and his little friends:

    I couldn’t focus on the article over Kim’s lips.

      Me either, she needs to back away from the fillers. She fairly snorts them like she does Birkens.

      Just commented the same below lol. It’s weird that they usually seem to be on top of all the trends but haven’t figured out that the rubber face thing is going out of style in favor of a more natural, fresh-faced look. I kinds wonder if she’s just filled so much that she has to keep filling.

      I wondered if they hurt. They look like they hurt.

  2. Curmudgeon says:

    No, she did not curse either team. I don’t like her but this trend of blaming some famous woman who happened to be at the game or, more commonly, the GF of a player of a team that loses is gross. Football fans and sports bros in general are some of the most toxic out there. I follow both teams and watched those games – they deserved to lose because they played badly and that’s not on Kim.

    She’s back to black hair, then? Huh. Missed that.

    Kim isn’t a football curse, that’s more than a bit silly. The Kardashians as a whole, however, are indeed a curse on humanity.

    DaniM, perfectly said.

    She better stay away from any Manchester City matches.

    The Hulu cameras were there to capture it all. This is just for an episode of their show.

  7. Marion says:

    Is she doing job interviews for the next person she will date?

  8. KC says:

    I just came here to chuckle at her getting mad about being blamed/labeled a football curse😆 but then I thought she’s probably bubbling with glee that she’s being talked about.😐🤷🏾‍♀️

    Arsenal fan here. Her kids love Arsenal and football since the World Cup; she’s just indugling them — just a reminder that a wealthy no-talent has more access than us longtime followers.

    Not bitter at all lol!
