Nicole and Khaled met years before his rise to fame. Since then, DJ Khalid has made enormous waves in the music and entertainment industry. Aside from releasing albums of his own, Khaled is now a record executive and producer, and more recently has dabbled in the acting world,  lending his voice to “Sipes in Disguise”, alongside Tom Holland in 2019, and appearing in “Bad Boys for Life” in 2020. While it is logical to conclude that Nicole Tuck is merely famous by association, with no involvement in the entertainment industry, she is a successful businesswoman in her own right. She has worked alongside her husband in multiple ventures, acting as his manager, supporting his career, and raising their two children.

Early Life and Family

Information about Tuck’s life before she rose to fame is sparse. However, we do know that she was born on 7 December 1975, in New York City, USA, into an affluent family of entrepreneurs. She is of Palestinian-American-African decent, indicating a colorful family history. Her father, Elwood Tuck, and her mother, currently unnamed, have two more children – Jonathan Tuck and a daughter, Freshie Tuck. After her brother was murdered in an altercation while buying marijuana in 2018, she made it clear to the judge that she would advocate for capital punishment in his case, completely distraught by the situation.

Tuck maintains a close relationship with her family, although they prefer to remain out of the limelight. She often travels with her mother, and expresses her affection for her father.


Nicole Tuck is certainly no fool. She has both a Bachelor of Fine Arts, from Marymount Manhattan College, graduating in 2003, as well as a Master of Business Administration, following her graduation from Fordham University in 2005.


ABU Apparel

Tuck founded her apparel line in 2011, utilizing her education to begin her career in the business industry.

Nicole Tuck and DJ Khaled

The brand was inspired by the hip hop life Tuck witnessed in New York, and was aimed at providing a forum for self-expression (Always Be U). Despite the endorsements of her then-boyfriend Khaled, and other iconic names such as Ace Hood and Aken, the apparel line soon began to register losses, and Tick was forced to close the brand. This was the end of her work in the conventional business field, and signaled an end in her family tradition of business moguls.

Khaled’s Manager

After that, Khaled engaged her in what was supposed to be a brief venture, managing certain business aspects of his career. As their romantic relationship grew and the two became even closer, this was soon made official.

Tuck is the official manager of Khaled’s musical career, managing all things business. This aspect of the relationship does not appear to have impacted their marriage in any way – at least as far as the public is aware.

Personal Life

Nicole Tuck and DJ Khaled met sometime in the ‘90s at an event, which immediately escalated into a courtship, and the years saw them only getting closer. The only hiccup in the relationship came in 2013 when Khaled proposed to Nicki Minaj. This raised multiple eyebrows as his committed relationship with Tuck was very much in the public eye.

Minaj and Khaled later confirmed that the proposal was merely a publicity stunt to promote the song that they had collaborated on. The ‘prank’ was undoubtedly in poor taste; however, Tuck has not made any comment or revealed her personal feelings about the stunt.

It was not until 2016 after Tuck fell pregnant that the two became engaged. Khaled was ecstatic about having a child, telling the media “This is my first boy and I’m excited and I want more.” A little while after the birth of their son, Asahd Tuck Khaled, an event that Khaled streamed live on his Snapchat, on 23 October 2016 the two celebrated a quiet and private courthouse wedding.

Khaled’s desire for more children was satisfied when Nicole gave birth to their second son, Alam Tuck Khaled on 20 January 2020.

Nicole and her husband are not at all shy when it comes to spending money. Tuck drives a Bentley valued at approximately $70,000 and expensive designer clothes. The couple purchased the mansion of the late comedian and actor, Robin Williams in Mulholland Estates, Los Angeles, where they currently reside. In addition, Khaled reputedly spent a further $25.9 million on a Miami waterfront home.

While the couple cannot be said to be thrifty, Nicole Tuck maintains a steady interest in charity work. She promotes causes on her Instagram, as well as donating and collecting funds for charity organizations.


Tuck’s mixed ethnicity is apparent in her features – she has a darker complexion, almond-shaped brown eyes, and ringleted brown hair. Tuck weighs approximately 145lbs (65kgs) and stands tall at 5ft 8ins (1.73). She keeps her hair at shoulder length and often appears with it in its natural state, managing to keep the curls from becoming completely unruly.

Net Worth and Salary

Nicole’s salary is directly relative to the success of her husband. It is unknown exactly how much she earns for her efforts as his manager, but ads of mid-2020, Tuck’s net worth is estimated at $20 million. While this is a significant amount, it’s completely overshadowed by her husband’s impressive $65 million. Nicole is presumed to oversee her eldest son’s funds, $300,000 is a virtual small fortune for a four-year-old. 75% of Asahd’s so-called income is donated to underprivileged children. Evidently, Tuck is trying her best to instill her charitable instinct in her children from an early age.
