American rapper Post Malone has had a streak of bad luck.

The 23-year-old nearly crashed his private jet, totaled his Rolls Royce and most recently, suffered a home invasion by armed robbers.

According to TMZ, Malone visited the Haunted Museum in Las Vegas in June where he had a close encounter with a Dybbuk box.


Dybbuk is Yiddish for a dislocated soul or a malicious spirit and has been part of Jewish mythology for centuries.

Accompanied by Zak Bagans, the owner of the museum and host of the American television show "Ghost Adventures," Malone visited the museum in June.

After a few drinks, Bagans removed the protective case of what he claimed is the "most haunted object ever."

Bagans touched the Dybbuk box while Malone touched Bagan's shoulder and said that was enough contact from Malone to trigger a curse, adding: "this is absolutely what's behind Post's string of death-defying incidents - the emergency landing, the scary car crash and the home invasion."
