Naturally, Drake seems to bring his infamous curse along when making a bet.
The Drake Curse remains very much alive and has set its sights on Logan Paul this time around.
The celebrated rapper is renowned for inadvertently causing chaos and misfortune when he either wagers on or supports a particular team or individual.
However, hopes for the curse’s demise were sparked when the Denver Nuggets clinched the NBA Championship in July.
But it appears the curse hasn’t vanished just yet.
Drake recently placed an $850,000 bet on Logan Paul to triumph over Dillon Danis in their boxing match in Manchester, England, on Saturday.
While sharing the bet on his Instagram account, Drake remarked, “Never bet against personal vendetta and settling scores.”
However, his wager appeared to backfire almost immediately.
At a press conference on Thursday, Paul and Danis were involved in an altercation that left Paul with a swollen face, even before the fight began.
Paul tweeted, “Dillon can’t escape me. The fight is very much happening, the stakes just got higher.”
Although we’re not experts in the field, entering a boxing ring with a swollen face from a pre-fight scuffle doesn’t sound like an ideal start. Many people are already attributing this to the Drake Curse taking effect.
Danis, who has his own history of evading fights, has spent the entire lead-up to the bout insulting Paul’s fiancée, Danish model Nina Agdal. The harassment escalated to the point where Agdal obtained a restraining order against Danis and filed a lawsuit against him for posting private and explicit images.
Agdal claimed that Danis had posted sexually explicit images without her consent, adding that he only agreed to remove them after the organizers of the fight threatened to cancel the event.
Clearly, there’s a significant personal dimension to this feud. However, it remains uncertain whether it can overpower the ominous influence of the Drake curse, which continues to captivate internet circles.
