Gone too Soon
DJ Khaled, his fiancée Nicole Tuck, and his future in-laws need lots of love and support right now. The Khaled/Tuck family received some devastating news late Sunday night, as reports that Nicole’s younger brother Jonathan Tuck was murdered over the weekend (Sunday, Feb. 4) hit the internet. At 25 years old, Tuck died at St. Barnabas Hospital after being shot.
Tuck was supposed to meet up with his friend, Brandon Davis, to watch the Super Bowl, but he never showed up. “He’s a good guy,” Davis, who has know Tuck for about seven years, told NY Daily News. “He was in the wrong place at the wrong time. There was no reason for him to be there.”
The crime against the 25-year-old is still under investigation, as police work diligently to figure out exactly what happened and find the person responsible for the murder. So far, authorities have learned that Tuck was shot in the face in a Bronx apartment.
Tuck was reportedly at the apartment — which was less than a mile from Tuck’s residence — to buy weed. Tuck allegedly got into an argument with his murderer while there, leading officers to assume he was shot after the drug deal went bad.
No witnesses have voluntarily stepped forward and no information on who called the police has been released at the time of publication. However, law enforcement sources told Daily News that a 34-year-old man was “taken in for questioning about the incident.”
Meanwhile, the second-floor residence stayed barricaded off well after the murder took place, as police look for more evidence to tie Khaled’s soon-to-be brother-in-law’s murder to the drug deal before ruling everything else out.
Greatness in the Room
This sad news follows Khaled’s stellar Grammy performance. Alongside Rihanna and Bryson Tiller, the DJ graced the annual award show’s stage to perform “Wild Thoughts.”
“I don’t know anything about the show, I just know that I was excited to perform and rip it down … and our performance was trending worldwide,” he told The Hollywood Reporter after being asked his thoughts on the show’s drop in ratings.
The “I’m the One” artist, who usually keeps his political views to himself, also participated in a skit highlighting parts of Michael Wolff’s book Fire and Fury. Khaled alongside Hillary Clinton, Cher, John Legend, Cardi B and Snoop Dogg read sections of Wolff’s less-than-flattering (but brutally honest) view of America’s 45th president.
“James Corden reached out to me,” the famous DJ recalled. “I thought it was funny and entertaining, and at the same time, putting a message for the people. So many great icons in that skit, and I was honored to be asked to be involved in it.”
“The Biggest Star
In that same conversation, Khaled talked about his son, one-year-old Asahd Khaled. According to the artist, his son “is the biggest star, and he has accomplished in 15 months what took me 25 years.”
Though Asahd is young, he is a music mogul in training. DJ Khaled is making sure of it. The 15-month-old accompanied his dad to the Grammys to be surround by “greatness.”
“My son loves Rihanna, and he had a talk with Jay-Z. That’s what I like doing, bringing my son around all greatness,” Khaled shared.
“We’re very protective of what things he wants to do at this age,” he continued. “But he does have some big announcements coming up.”
