Her Family & Education Background

She is close to her parents, and she often posts thankful messages to them on her Instagram account. One of such thoughtful messages was a Father’s Day post. She also travels with her mother often. In 2014 and 2015, the two toured Italy, Poland, Austria, and Turkey, among other destinations in Europe.
Her First Business
She started a clothing brand called ABU Apparel (Always Be U) in 2011. With her husband, DJ Khaled, as the brand ambassador, the items were flying off the shelves within no time. Unfortunately, the business sank around 2013.
Her Personal Life
She met DJ Khaled in the 90s before he became a renowned artist and music producer. Before the two got engaged, fans were surprised when DJ Khaled made a faux proposal to Nicki Minaj in 2013, which left them wondering whether he had broken up with Nicole. However, both DJ Khaled and Nicki later confirmed that it was just a joke and a prank to promote one of his music albums. The Khaleds have two sons now: Asahd, born in 2016, and Aalam, born in 2020. After their first son was born, they got engaged.
In 2016, her husband streamed on Snapchat, the birth of their son. The live stream showed the baby’s arrival and his first few minutes after birth.
Her Social Media Presence
For a business manager of such a music empire and with two young boys, she tries to be active on social media. Her Instagram account has almost 40,000 followers. However, her posts are several months apart, and her last post was in January 2020.
The couple have created Instagram accounts for their sons, where Asahd has over 1 million followers, and Aalam has over 140,000 followers. Asahd also has a Jordan X line of apparel.
Height and Weight
Nicole is tall at 5 feet 8 inches. Her actual weight is 67 kg. Nicole has amazing brown eyes and gorgeous black hair.
Her Philanthropist Activities
On Asahd’s first birthday, the family collaborated with UNICEF to collect fleece blankets, storybooks, monetary donations, and to offer vaccines and mosquito nets to the underprivileged children. On his second birthday, the family launched the Asahd Initiative to support projects that focus on the child and the community.
In conclusion, Nicole may not have a public profile, but she manages the business affairs of one of the largest empires in the hip-hop industry. She definitely is an invaluable contributor to DJ Khaled’s immense success.
