‘I actually have the footage of me falling, flying through the sky, hitting the board on my rib,’ DJ Khaled said, ‘and bellyflopping in the water.’
The Staying Alive performer also shared a clip of himself receiving a therapeutic massage following the injury, after he had to cut short a golf game due to lingering discomfort.
He said his therapist said she thought it was an inflammation of the muscle, while he said he was going to seek an opinion from a doctor.
‘I called a doctor, he’s gonna come later on this evening, just to make sure it ain’t nothing serious,’ he said while on the massage table. ‘My masseuse is saying it’s just the muscle. She feels the muscle really irritated and disturbed in that area.’
DJ Khaled later shared a clip in which he was getting X-rayed after having sleeping problems for two days following the surfing incident.
‘I’ve been in pain – I’m hoping it’s just a bruised muscle,’ he said of his progress amid the injury.
He told his doctor that he was hoping to recover so he can play golf on a daily basis.
In a subsequent clip taken on a golf course, DJ Khaled said he’d been diagnosed with a ‘big, real bad bruise’ and potentially a fracture.

DJ Khaled previously was injured in December 2017 during a water skiing accident while he was en route to meet up with fellow music mogul Diddy.
In the incident, he suffered cuts when he was trying to move tree branches that were in the water.
‘The key is don’t panic,’ he said at the time. ‘This ain’t no joke … I ain’t panicking. I just gotta figure it out. In life, there is road blocks. I am stuck in a tree in the ocean.’
