Kate Upton Curse: Does World's Hottest Model Ruin Athletes' Careers?!

by at .

Kate Upton and Justin Verlander started dating in late 2012. Most would congratulate the Detroit Tigers ace for landing the ultimate WAG - the trophy girlfriend to end all trophy girlfriends.

If you care more about baseball than boobs, however, you might be screaming for Verlander to drop Kate like a hot rock.

The Cy Young winner has been struggling this season and many believe Upton is proving to be a distraction that Verlander simply can't handle.

If that's the case, at least Justin can take comfort in the fact that he's not the first athlete to fall victim to the curse of Kate:

Yes, despite the fact that Upton just turned 22 earlier this month, she's already, um...rounded the bases with a number of athletes, kinda-athletes, and...mascots?

She may not have been in the spotlight for very long, but in addition to Verlander, Kate has already been linked with Mark Sanchez of the New York Jets, Blake Griffin of the LA Clippers, and Maksim Chmerkovskiy of Dancing With the Stars. (Like we said, kinda athlete.)

Their relationships with Kate coincided with career slumps for every dude on the list.

Last year, Upton was even proposed to by the Orlando Magic mascot and we all know how their season turned out. (It was horrible.)

So jump into the gallery above and ask yourself if you would still bang Kate Upton knowing that it could mean the end of your career. The answer is yes. Yes you would.
