Most people seem to know about the rumored Kardashian Curse. It seems as if after a man comes in contact or is brought into that family, through dating or marriage, their life gets noticeably worse. Things just tend to go downhill for them. Some in a major way, others just slightly. It's far from an exact science, but then again, how many curses are?


Well, Philadelphia 76ers point guard Ben Simmons has been dating Kendall Jenner on-and-off for some time now and it seems the Philly fans aren't taking any chances when it comes to messing with their young star and the famed curse. They have officially started a petition to have Jenner banned from the Wells Fargo Center following a Sixers loss in the first game she attended.

The team had started 10-0 at home, then Jenner attended a game, and you guessed it, the team lost. And it was a loss to the arguably worst team in the NBA, the Cleveland Cavaliers. You can understand why the fans quickly got weary, but then again Cave forward Tristan Thompson is with and has a child with Khloe Kardashian, so who knows.


Believe in the curse or not, there's enough circumstantial evidence to not want to risk anything with your young superstar in the making. Especially after all the bad luck (and bad draft picks) the Sixers have had during "The Process." The not taking any chances approach is definitely justified here, but we'll have to wait and see how many people actually sign the petition. Good luck, Philly!
