Is a girlfriend powerful enough to put a curse on a team? Celebrity partners often catch flack when their athlete boyfriend doesn’t play up to par, and this is the current situation with “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star Khloé Kardashian. She and Houston Rockets guard James Harden have been dating for months and his athletic prowess has apparently been on the decline since they’ve been together.
Even though Kardashian, 31, has come under fire for his less than stellar performance, she isn’t taking the blame for Harden’s bad NBA season. She had an expletive-filled message for her naysayers during a live chat on her website Thursday. "Suck my d--k and my b---s. Someone's trying to give me too much power," Kardashian told her listeners. "But my p--sy is f--king powerful bro, let me tell you that." She added about her boyfriend: "[He's] the f--king s--t."
It seems Kardashian deviated from some of the messages in her new book, “Strong Looks Better Naked.” The E! reality star preaches to readers they should let negativity fall to the side. “I’ve learned that I don’t have to react to every a--hole on the planet,” she wrote in the book.

Kardashian isn’t alone when it comes to being blamed for an athlete’s bad game. “I Bet” singer Ciara was accused of putting a curse on the Seattle Seahawks after she and quarterback Russell Wilson started dating in the spring. Similarly, Jessica Simpson was often blamed for Tony Romo’s losses with the Dallas Cowboys when they dated in 2007.
Whether or not the E! reality star is to blame, many Houston Rockets fans are still disappointed with the team. They broke an NBA record, but it’s not the kind of record fans want. The Houston Rockets became the first team to lose three consecutive games by 20 points each in the beginning of the season, Us Weekly noted.
Harden, 26, has not responded to Kardashian’s colorful defense.
