Italian football team, As Roma are the latest to take the mysterious curse seriously, banning all of their players from having their pictures taken with Drake until the end of the season.
Roma’s decision comes after, PSG defender, Layvin Kurzawa became the latest victim of ‘Drake Curse’ following Paris Saint-Germain’s shock 5-1 thrashing against Lille.
The full back joined a long list of sports stars that have gone on to lose their next game after getting a selfie with Drake.
Everything was going so well for Manchester United with Ole Solskjaer at the wheel and then half the squad went to see Drake in concert…
After the gig at the Manchester Arena on March 11, Paul Pogba posed with Drake, while Man United team-mates Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard watched the concert from a box.
The team went on to lose to Wolves, twice and Barcelona.
Even Manchester City weren’t spared the curse of Drake! Sergio Auguero took a selfie at the same concert, only to miss a penalty against Tottenham in the Champions League.
Have you noticed that Drake pulls the same face in all his pictures? Anyway, Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang fell victim to the ‘Drake Curse’ after posing for a photo with the musician on 2 April.
The Gunners lost to Everton 1-0 at Goodison Park the following weekend and Aubameyang was benched.
Many years before Serena Williams got married, there were rumours that Drake and the tennis star had dated.
Serena was even asked if the rapper was her lucky mascot because he used to turn up at her matches.
When Drizzy showed up to the U.S. Open and Serena shockingly lost to underdog Roberta Vinci, fans started the hashtag #BlameDrake. Awks.
In 2015 Serena Williams was trying to become the first woman to win all four tennis Grand Slams in a calendar year since Steffi Graf did it in 1988.
But 2015 was also the year that Drake was spotted watching a lot of her games.
Roberta Vinci was a 300-1 underdog when she faced Serena in the US Open – but we’re pretty sure by now you can guess what the outcome of the match was.
In a way, it kicked off with Drake’s beloved NBA team the Toronto Raptors. He became a global ambassador for the club in 2013, and can be seen cheering them on from the sidelines whenever they’ve got a big game.
Unfortunately though, the last six years have seen the Raptors develop a bit of a reputation for choking in those big games.
And if you still need more evidence, last year Conor McGregor tapped out in the fourth round of his fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Any guesses who he’d been hanging out with beforehand?
However, it seems Drake knows that he’s cursed.
Earlier this year, there were concerns he might influence the outcome of the Superbowl, so he took to his Instagram story to post a picture of himself with a caption that read;
“To everyone that believes in the Drake curse, good luck tomorrow” as he wore a jumper donning the logos of the four teams who were in the play-offs – Kansas City Chiefs, New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints, and Rams.
With so many infamous examples, it’s unsurprising that Drake has got in on the joke.
Ahead of the game that decided who’d be playing in the most recent Super Bowl, Drake wore a jumper featuring the logos of all four teams that were in with a chance.
Two teams had to make it to the final, so surely that was the end of the curse?
That’s what we got for you about the Drake curse, bye for now until another person suffers from the curse.
