Have you ever met a woman married to a man “suffering from success?” Oh yes! The sickness is success! Not very common, but the American entrepreneur and artist manager Nicole Tuck became this lucky woman when she found space in Disc Jockey Khaled’s life as his wife (not officially married). Khaled Mohamed Khaled is a prominent US musician, producer, songwriter, and DJ with a high appetite for material affluence. In one of his hit songs, Khaled claims to be suffering from success. The couple together with their 2-year-old son is enjoying life in their palatial Miami and Californian homes-

DJ Khaled's wife was born in the United States of America on the 7th of December, 1975 and spent most of her formative years in Miami. Currently, she is a US business lady who also serves as DJ Khaled’s private business manager. A lot of information about her root origin is scant, but some of Nicole Tuck Instagram posts indicate that she hails from a wealthy Palestinian - American family. Tuck's family is populated with aggressive entrepreneurs who manage diverse business ventures. Her friendship with DJ Khaled started almost 30 years ago and quickly blossomed into a promising relationship even before Khaled had made a name for himself in the music industry.
How educated is DJ Khaled's wife?
According to her Linkedin profile, Tuck holds two degrees.
She completed her higher education at Marymount Manhattan College with a Bachelor’s degree in fine arts.
She also acquired her master’s degree in education from Fordham University and graduated in 2005.
Stint at ABU
In 2011, she went into business by starting a small scale apparel company going by the name ABU Apparel. Nicole sold fashionable apparels, and through that label, she inspired her clients to define their style and follow their trends. ABU for "ALWAYS BE YOU" means you should always have high confidence yourself no matter your circumstances, size, color or shape. The company did well and made enough profits for her to enroll DJ Khaled as one of her brand ambassadors.
With time, the profit margins went even higher, and for any business person, this is good news. But this window of success did not open for long, as at some point, the business started registering losses. The downward trend only got worse by the day and compelled ABU to shut down.
She remained jobless for a while, concerning herself more with home management and raising their son Asahd until Khaled asked her to manage his business orders and assignments. To date, her primary focus is to increase Khaled's stocks as the business manager. The empire has since registered remarkable growth under her management.
Where it all started with DJ Khaled
The Nick Minaj proposal
Nicole and Khaled’s love affair started way before he acquired fame in the music industry in the early 1990s. Although Khaled is quite vocal on social media, he has never shared precisely how he met Tuck. It is believed they first met at an event, and although each of them achieved personal success, their bond of friendship only got better.
However, men can be unpredictable sometimes. In 2013, when everyone was expecting the couple to settle down, DJ Khaled shocked their fans by proposing to Nicki Minaj on MTV YouTube channel. In a seemingly confident tone, he flushed out a $500000 engagement ring and asked the famous question, “Nicki Minaj, will you marry me? And most characteristically, Khaled pressed on;
"We got the same symptoms, we both suffering from success. You out there touring, you out there hustling, you out there making music, you out there winning. I understand. That's why I feel like you need a man like me in your life."
Whether he was serious or not, it is a question only Khaled can answer, but when contacted for a comment, Nicki Minaj dismissed the whole incident as a clever joke intended to promote the song "I wanna be with you."
Nobody in my real life took it seriously. Everybody just hit me like, ‘LOL. Yo, Khaled is crazy.’ Khaled is my brother, and Khaled was not serious with that damn proposal, ya'll… Please let it go. He was kidding. He's not attracted to me, and he doesn't like me. We're brother and sister. She said.
A little later though, Khaled also came public and confirmed that it was indeed a prank. If indeed that was a promotion idea, then his wife was privy to the whole scheme. Remember she is the private business manager, and this may provide an explanation as to why there was no public shock and outrage from her.
Tuck and Khaled had an 11-year casual relationship and only got engaged when their son Asahd Tuck Khaled was born in 2016.

In 2015, Tuck surprised her mum with a European vacation after Pauline expressed a strong wish to visit Amsterdam on her facebook wall.

She has a sister called Freshie Tuck, a stepmom and step-siblings. Nicole's younger brother Jonathan died when he was shot in the face while shopping in Belmont.
'Prince' Asahd Khaled
Tuck and Khaled are really proud of their son Asahd. Their love for him is obvious and it is often expressed in the numerous appearances they make with him on their important occasions. On the night he was born, the snap chat King got so excited that he documented the entire process. He had, of course, sought for his wife's consent way in advance and on the real day, his snap chat followers watched Nicole, grimace, and groan through contractions as she conversed with her doctor.
