Drake curse broken as Argentina win World Cup… but rapper still manages to LOSE $1million

DRAKE broke his duck but was still left with a $1million bill… despite CORRECTLY predicting Argentina would win the World Cup final.

The rapper ended his famous curse for wrong tips – but it was a Messi ending as he’d put a seven-figure bet on victory over France to come in NINETY minutes.

Drake posted on Instagram his bet that Argentina would win the final
Fans were worried the ‘Drake curse’ would strike again but at least he accurately predicted the winning side

Kylian Mbappe‘s late double made it 2-2 after normal time to ruin the Canadian’s wager.

The French striker then fired home his second penalty on 118 minutes to level at 3-3 and become only the second ever hat-trick scorer in a World Cup final, only for Argentina to win the shootout 4-2.

That gave two-goal Lionel Messi the perfect World Cup finale as the PSG star added the only major honour missing from his cabinet.

But in contrast it left the rapper feeling the blues as he lost $1m – about £820,000.

Drake had earlier posted a picture of his betslip on Instagram showing the huge stake.

Had he won he could more than doubled his money to around $2.75million.

But fans were sceptical – due to the “Drake curse”.

One commented: “Yoo Drake please cancel your bet… you are going to ruin a historical day for no reason…”

A second said: “Drake bet on Argentina … I’m gonna put money on France to try and cancel the Jinx out”.

A third added: “So Drake also made a bet on the Golden State Warriors to win the NBA championship, and they won.

“It’s not over yet boys, Messi’s gonna break his curse”.


A fourth wrote: “Drake bet that Argentina would win, it’s over”.

Drake previously backed boxer Anthony Joshua to beat Andy Ruiz Jr only for the Brit to suffer a shock KO.

He also was pictured with Manchester United star Jadon Sancho while he was at Borussia Dortmund.

Sancho and his team then lost to rivals Bayern Munich.

Other sports stars such as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Conor McGregor as Ligue 1 side PSG have fallen victims to the Drake curse.
