Magic Johnson Son Reveals He Is Gay
NBA legend Magic Johnson’s son has come out of the closet.
Earvin Johnson III, whose nickname is EJ, was spotted on Sunset Boulevard holding hands with his alleged boyfriend, TMZ reports. Johnson rocked an all black outfit that included a fur jacket and red purse.
The 20-year old told TMZ he’s been “hoping and praying” for his dad’s team, the Los Angeles Dodgers, which was taken over by his father and his business partners last year.
EJ is one of Johnson’s three children with his wife Cookie. EJ is a student at NYU and is supposedly close to his parents.
Magic told TMZ, “Cookie and I love EJ and support him in every way. We’re very proud of him.”
In August, Magic tweeted, “Thx to my son EJ for hosting me at NYU. Look forward to taking him to dinner tonight in the city.”
