The phrase “Kardashian curse” spread on social media, as users claimed that the American star has become a symbol of bad luck, as any team she supports and wears his shirt loses the match in the end.
And after Seville’s victory over Roma in Budapest, Wednesday, in drawing the UEFA European League final, pictures of Kardashian, wearing an antique shirt for the Italian club Roma, reappeared on social media, sparking allegations that the “Kardashian football curse” is real.

The story of the so-called “Kardashian curse” began when I attended the second leg match of the round of 16 in the Europa League, between Arsenal and the Portuguese Sporting Club.

While Kardashian was encouraging Arsenal, Sporting Club eventually advanced, after penalty shootouts, which is the same scenario as the match between Rome and Seville.
Seville, who won the seventh title in the auxiliary continental competition, scored four penalties through Argentines Lucas Ocampos, Eric Lamela, Goncalo Montial and Croatian Ivan Rakitic, while Brian Cristante scored the only kick for Roma.

Three days after the Arsenal-Sporting Club meeting, Kardashian traveled to France to watch the French First Division competitions between Paris Saint-Germain against Rennes, but the Parisian team was defeated at home by a clean double, contrary to all expectations.
Last January, Kardashian, who is 42, was spotted in Los Angeles wearing a 1997/98 season Roma shirt. As a result, searches for the team on Google increased.
