​Post Malone Nearly Killed In String Of Bad Luck After Touching Cursed Box

Post Malone has admitted he was nearly killed in a string of unfortunate incidents after opening a supposedly cursed object known as a Dybbuk box.


The rapper, whose real name is Austin Richard Post, famously touched the haunted relic in 2018, having appeared on an episode of Travel Channel series Ghost Adventures.

In a new interview with Seth Meyers, Malone was asked if his experience had reinforced his faith in the supernatural world.


The star explained how, in the wake of his eerie encounter, a series of seriously unlucky events happened.

Appearing on Late Night with Seth Meyers via video link, Malone said: "After we opened up this creepy Dybbuk box, I got in a car accident, I almost had a plane wreck, my house got broken into - all that type of stuff. Within a month's time, it was really, really odd stuff."

He added: "I've always had an interest in that."

Meyers also asked Malone about his experiences with UFOs, saying: "You have been lucky enough to see what you at least believe to be UFO, is that true?"

Smiling, Malone replied: "Yeah, hell yeah!

"And especially here in Utah, things are creepy if you look up into the sky. Sometimes I just go out at like 4am with my night vision goggles and just look up at the sky and see if we can see anything."

Video footage from 2018 showed Malone with Zak Bagans, owner of Haunted Museum in Las Vegas, and the mysterious box.


In the clip, Bagans places his hand on the box and Malone touches his shoulder - which is apparently enough to get yourself cursed.

The box itself is a wine cabinet that Bagans and others claim is haunted by an evil spirit known as a 'dybbuk'.


Over time, it's been linked to various spooky happenings, having even inspired 2012 horror film The Possession.

Shortly after Malone touched the artefact, he was involved in a serious car crash, though thankfully he was uninjured in the incident.

His Rolls Royce apparently crashed into a Kia before smashing through a fence and coming to rest in some shrubs, according to Sgt. Andrew Meyers of the Beverly Hills Police Department.

Soon after, he tweeted: "God must hate me lol."
