Kate Upton has been involved with several athletes since becoming famous and many of them went on to experience career slumps. Is the model cursed?
1. Justin Verlander
Kate and Justin have been on and off for years. They split in 2013, leading to an epic post-season performance by the Tigers ace. Now that they're back together, Verlander is carrying a career-high ERA.
2. Mark Sanchez
When Kate dated Sanchez he was the New York Jets star QB and the toast of Manhattan. His career hit a downward spiral during their relationship and he now warms the bench in Philly.
3. Blake Griffin
A slumping Blake Griffin is still better than most. Regardless, we can't help but notice that while Griffin dated Kate in 2013, he turned in some of the worst performances of his career, culminating in an ankle injury that contributed to the Clippers being ousted from the playoffs.
4. Maksim Chmerkoskiy
Maks was one of the first celebs to get his hands on Kate. Now that they've broken up, he's finally won the mirrored ball that had previously eluded him for his entire career. Coincidence? Probably, but who knows?!
5. The Orlando Magic
Stuff, the mascot of the Orlando magic proposed to Kate during a game in February of 2014. The team went on to finish the season with 23-59 record. The curse of Kate lives on!
