The Kardashian Curse: Is Tristan Thompson Next?
We all have our own superstitions — breaking a mirror means bad luck for 7 years, a black cat crossing your path brings bad luck (forever? idk), but if you ask me, the truest curse of them all plays out in front of our eyes every Sunday on E!.
Can you guess what I’m talking about?
Yes, I mean the Kardashian curse.
Kylie Jenner explained the curse perfectly on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians in June 2016 when she said–
“The Kardashian Curse is every male figure that comes and dates a Kardashian. Their life kind of just goes down hill after that.”
The curse goes all the way back to the beginning of the Kardashian empire in 2000 when Kim Kardashian dated Reggie Bush. It continued onto Ray J, who was burned by the curse when the public accused him of releasing his and Kiki’s infamous sex tape. The curse has only grown as the women have become more powerful.
It’s said to be worse on the men in their lives who play sports. Khloe Kardashian is known for being into basketball players and her ex-husband, Lamar Odom is just one of the men she has put the hex on. When Odom and Koko first got together, he was at the peak of his career; a star player for the LA Lakers. Fast forward a few years and Odom’s NBA career ended, and he was found unconscious inside a Nevada brothel. In a new series “Surviving A Fathers Addiction: Lamar Odom’s Family Speaks Out,” which is featured in People/Entertainment Weekly, Odom’s daughter spoke about her dad’s marriage to Kardashian.
“Their relationship is very toxic,” she said, “my dad has an addictive personality so my dad was addicted to the attention he got with Khloe.”
Odom isn’t the only NBA player to be cursed, Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband, Kris Humphries got out pretty fast — after 72 days to be exact, but many people think his less-than stellar career can be explained through this superstition.
Kourtney Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend and baby daddy, Scott Disick is next on the long list of men these sisters have “cursed.” The tabloids have been swarming Disick in recent weeks due to his questionable behavior with the ladies. In a recent episode of KUWTK, Disick admitted to being a sex addict, and his antics at the Cannes Movie Festival all but confirmed that.
With a track record like this, fans of the Cleveland Cavaliers are worried Koko’s current boyfriend, Tristan Thompson is next in line. His poor performance in recent games are only fueling the fire:
