After placing a wager on Argentina to win the World Cup, Drake has lost a staggering $1 million. The Canadian rapper wagered that they will prevail in a timely manner. In the 118th minute of extra time in the championship match, Kylian Mbappé of France tied the score after Argentina had taken a 3-2 lead over France.
A Shocking Result
Unfortunately for Drake, the thrilling final was called off after penalties. Despite the 3-3 final score, Argentina prevailed 4-2 on penalties. Drake was none too happy with the results, while fans and supporters were with him upon losing, there were still those who chose to poke fun at the rapper while the results and the wounds were still fresh. We could only imagine that the Drake house was also filled with tears, but not of joy, because Lionel Messi was seen with tears of joy at the outcome. Social media users were all hyped up and ready to add salt to Drake and Roshtein’s wounds.
A String of Bad Luck
It usually doesn’t work out well for the team that Drake supports, whether it’s by donning a jersey, posing for a picture, or in this case, betting on them and encouraging them. Some individuals believe that a phenomena known as the “Drake curse” occurs whenever Drake cheers on a team or athlete ahead of a significant sporting event.
The Drake curse really exists and is treated with such gravity that in 2019, Roma players were forbidden from meeting with or taking pictures with the Canadian rapper. Although we assume the social media post was a prank, with sports and superstition, you can never be really certain. All in all, this could be just a stroke of bad luck or maybe it was just Messi’s time.
