As one of the world’s foremost basketball players, Magic Johnson is no stranger to scrutiny! She has been tried, talked about, and criticized for her personal battles – including her health – as well as her relationship with her son, EJ Johnson. Despite the sabotage, Magic has been loving her son loudly for years and has opened up about what their relationship has been like since EJ recently came out as a homosexual.
Speaking of diversity, the Johnson family grew up together in the face of adversity and became clear about loving each other. More specifically, Magic reveals that when she found the courage to express her sexuality, Eze changed her for the better.
“He changed me,” said Magic. “She is OK. I am very proud of who this boy is. “
“As I got older, as my wife talked to me, I couldn’t [judge EJ]. I had to accept who he was and who he wanted to be. He actually helped me get there. Because he was very proud. Cookies said, ‘Look in the mirror.’ I said, ‘You’re right.’ Because I’m proud that he and I got it. “
“You’ll find the other way too,” Magic said. “A lot of people don’t love that I love my son.”
However, things have not always been so simple. Magic and his wife Cookie recalled EJ’s expulsion by TMZ in 2013 after the publication posted a picture of him holding hands with his partner. Since then, Johnsons has been advocating for the LGBTQ + community and those fighting HIV / AIDS.
