VIDEO: Kendal Jenner rips ‘Kardashian Curse’ haters amid dating Devin Booker
Kendall Jenner isn’t taking things lightly when it comes to this whole ‘Kardashian Curse’ phenomenon. The 25-year-old supermodel, who’s currently dating Phoenix Suns star Devin Booker, aired her feelings in a recent two-part reunion special of the hit reality series Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
“What I don’t like about the narrative is that the blame is on us,” Jenner told host Andy Cohen when asked about the alleged curse (via Kardashians on E!). “The men need to take that responsibility.”

To a point, Kendall is absolutely right. The Kardashian/Jenner family has been unfairly tagged by social media as somewhat bringers of bad luck when it comes to the careers of the professional athletes they date.
Kendall, for example, has had a long list of NBA players she’s been linked with over the past including Ben Simmons of the Philadelphia 76ers, Kyle Kuzma of the Los Angeles Lakers, D’Angelo Russell of the Minnesota Timberwolves, and Jordan Clarkson of the Utah Jazz. Khloe, Kendall’s older sister, was married to former NBA champion Lamar Odom and, more recently, has been in an on-and-off relationship with Boston Celtics forward Tristan Thompson.
Just among those names, you can clearly see that this so-called curse is absolutely artificial. As Kris Jenner puts it, there’s a handful of NBA (and NFL) titles between her daughters’ list of partners which should automatically debunk this theory.
For what it’s worth, Kendall’s current beau is absolutely killing it in the playoffs. Booker has been on fire as he tries to lead the Suns back to the NBA Finals to further silence the Kardashian/Jenner slander and, more importantly, start building his legacy as one of the best young superstars in the NBA.
