Kim Kardashian's week: Dooms Arsenal in Europa League, gets Messi booed off the pitch

Based on how preposterously good Arsenal and Lionel Messi have been this season, there's only one possible explanation for their respective failures this week: tourist Kim Kardashian.

On Thursday, the 42-year-old socialite made her presence felt at the Emirates with her son Saint (the second-oldest of Kim and Kanye's four children). Cruising at the top of the Premier League table and targeting European glory, Arsenal suffered a shock elimination to a Sporting side that's sitting fourth in Liga Portugal.

But with Kim K gone, Arsenal returned to normalcy on Sunday by hammering Crystal Palace 4-1

Meanwhile, Kim and Saint popped up across the Channel at Paris Saint-Germain's home match against Rennes on Sunday. Looking to maintain their strong lead at the top of Ligue 1, PSG slipped to a damning 2-0 defeat to the visitors.

There was a debunked story that PSG Ultras planned on booing Messi throughout the match because of the Champions League elimination to Bayern Munich and the ongoing uncertainty over his contract, but that ended up happening anyway after an abject performance from the home team.

Let's hope that Kim's next travel plan isn't to see the USMNT play Grenada in the Nations League.
