DJ Khaled says he and his family recovered from COVID-19: was he vaccinated?

I keep seeing coverage of DJ Khaled’s announcement that he and his family have recovered from coronavirus. Khaled and his wife, Nicole Tuck, have two sons: Asahd, who turns five in October and Aalam, one and a half. Their children are of course too young to be vaccinated yet, but Khaled and Nicole should have been vaccinated by now. Absolutely none of the coverage I read specified whether Khaled and Nicole were vaccinated nor did it even question whether they were. Khaled Instagrams so much of his life, including his family vacations, birthday parties, dinners etc. As far as I can find, neither he nor Nicole have posted about getting vaccinated prior to this. They haven’t said much about the pandemic, although they wear masks in some photos. Here’s what he wrote, via People, and that post is below.

“My family and I have recovered from COVID and we’re all good now,” a message shared on his account read. “God is the greatest! God love us and we love God!”

In the caption of his post, Khaled — who shares sons Asahd, 4, and Aalam, 18 months, with wife Nicole Tuck — also urged fan to stay healthy amid the ongoing pandemic.

“Please be safe out there! Please take care of yourself,” the music producer wrote, before thanking his doctors and team for “holding me up while Me and my family focused on recovery.”


[From People]

As People notes, Khaled hadn’t posted for two weeks prior to this. God is great and so are the doctors and scientists who have spent lifetimes working to treat people and create vaccines. If Khaled was vaccinated and this was a breakthrough case for him or his wife (it’s unclear whether she was also sick), he probably would have mentioned it. It’s also possible that his wife was vaccinated and he wasn’t or vice versa. Posts like this give the impression that coronavirus is no big deal, when in fact Khaled probably had concierge doctors come to his house with the latest treatments and state of the art equipment. ICUs are full around the US and these treatments are not used on most people until they’re very sick. Again, I’m making assumptions based on what he didn’t say. I’m glad he and his family are ok, but I wish more outlets were calling him out for being so cagey with the details.

    I bet $1000 that he & his wife STILL ain’t vaccinated…hell I bet the NATIONAL DEBT on that one!

      I’m with you. and i’m doubling. Khaled makes nice music but is a selfcentered douche canoe – I bet the canadian national debt on it.

  2. Sigmund says:

    He and his family definitely have access to doctors and medical care not available to the average American. Very irresponsible of them to casually pass it off as no big deal. (And if it’s not a big deal to them because they were vaccinated and so the symptoms were less intense, he should admit that.)

  3. Jan says:

    Chances are, he and his wife are not vaccinated, otherwise he would’ve been shouting it to the rooftops. He likes to toot his own horn.

  4. Mina_Esq says:

    He is gross. Zero chance this selfish d-bag was vaccinated.

  5. anniefannie says:

    My guessing they weren’t vaxed either or he’d have mentioned. He’s lucky to have the resources to get concierge treatment. The risky behavior with those adorable boys is bizarre to me. I wonder if these anti vaxers learn anything after spinning the wheel of fate?!

  6. fluffy_bunny says:

    He’s a big dude so he totally should have been vaccinated. From the sounds of it he isn’t.

  7. Driver8 says:

    Every time I see his face, I think “this guy doesn’t give head”. I bet he isn’t vaccinated either.

    • Kat says:

      I wish I could high-five you for that one 😂! Agreed, not only is he a repulsive chauvinist, but he gives off major ‘I’m-a-selfish-jerk-in-bed-vibes’. He probably expects BJs and then falls asleep immediately after he’s been satisfied.

    • Savu says:

      saaaaaaame! I think damn Nicole out here giving and not receiving 😂

      He really seems to love his kids. I wish he loved them enough to protect himself against a deadly virus that could’ve easily taken him from them.

    I’ve been happy to see more DJ’s speaking up and out about being vaccinated and starting the scene again responsibly. Sad that Chicago legend Paul Johnson was lost to covid, it seems to have helped overcome some vaccine hesitancy in other Black DJs at least

  9. Kristen says:

    I would bet that his wife is vaccinated but he isn’t. His little kids have masks in that second-to-last photo, which isn’t typical for the rabid anti-science folks. Plus his wife and nanny also have masks.

  10. pollyv says:

    This guy has always given me the creeps. He gives off huge grifter vibes. I also bet he’s not vaxed.

    • lucy2 says:

      I get weird vibes from him too, don’t know why.
      Glad they’ve recovered, hopefully they don’t have any lingering symptoms, and I hope the kids are OK. But FFS, get vaccinated.

  11. Digital Unicorn says:

    I seriously cannot stand this guy – he gives off mega creep vibes. Am sure there is a MeToo mountain somewhere with his name on it.

  12. Lunasf17 says:

    Lol. God is so good he let you catch Covid then healed you? Why not just keep you from getting it of he is so good to you? He has anti vaxxers vibes to me. Also anyone who uses a private jet can F off. How selfish and harmful to “God’s planet.” I just can’t with these fake ass people who think god favors them for being douche bags while others suffer.

  13. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    Welp, here’s to hoping he gets ED out of it.
    *cheers, d-bag!*

  14. C says:

    These comments are pretty disgusting, considering they’re all based on the assumption that he is unvaccinated. I don’t listen to his music really, but can he not be grateful to have recovered without being attacked?

  15. You Know Me says:

    Hard to believe anything this hanger on’r has to say.

  16. IMARA219 says:

    Hmm. I mean, it’s gross to speculate. I can give a simple, good for him and good for his family for feeling better and keep it moving. I care whenever anyone dies or gets ill. I don’t need to preface my amount of caring or condolences based on vaccination status.
