The curse of rapper-singer Drake has reached a new level as a professional soccer team has announced it is banning players from taking photos with Drizzy out of fear of losing a game.
For those who don’t know about the #DrakeCurse, it’s the idea that whenever Drake takes a picture with a team or wears their merchandise that team will lose their upcoming game. While the curse hasn’t been proven, there have been several instances where the curse revealed itself.
Now, Paris Saint-Germain, a French soccer club, is banning pictures with Drake. Layvin Kurzawa, a player from PSG, snapped a photo with the Canadian rapper and posted it to his Instagram. The two were backstage at Drake’s Assassination Vacation tour in Europe. The photo was taken right before a championship match.
Only two days later, PSG horribly lost their match, in what was said to be their worst loss in ten years. And according to Fox Sports, the team lost their captain and another player to injuries in the same game.
In response to PSG’s tragic loss, AS Roma, an Italian club, posted a tweet banning all team members’ photos with Drake until after their season is over. “All Roma players banned from taking photos with Drake until the end of the season,” the tweet read.
The team has added to the Drake curse list, which includes UFC fighters, MMA fighters, college, and professional basketball teams.
