DJ Khaled, the seemingly perpetually optimistic and motivational figure, is plagued with some dark news if reports are true today. The larger-than-life character has been grooming his son, Asahd Khaled, for the public eye, while his fiancee has maintained a less visible profile. Nonetheless, you've surely seen her step out with Khaled on a red carpet or two.

His fiancee, Nicole Tuck, has reportedly suffered the loss of a family member as her brother, Jonathan, was allegedly shot in the face and killed during a drug deal gone awry. It all happened over some marijuana too, according to online reports. Jonathan apparently ventured over to a nearby apartment in the Bronx to purchase weed, where he got into an argument with the dealer, and was shot in the face as a result. He was taken to the hospital where he later passed away.

Law enforcement sources say that a 34-year old man was taken into questioning over the incident. We'll keep you posted if more details arrive. DJ Khaled has yet to respond or say anything concerning this report.
