Magic Johnson’s daughter, Elisa, is making the most out of an unpleasant experience as she promotes body positivity while sharing her scars from a recent home invasion.
Last December, Elisa was one of the victims of a home invasion in Los Angeles and reportedly had to escape through a sliding glass door. Now, she finally bears the scars from that experience proudly.
Elisa put up an Instagram photo of herself wearing a black sports bra and matching pants, placing the crisscross scars across her midsection on full display.
They eventually made away with a Rolex and other jewelry, cash, and electronic devices worth between $30,000 and $40,000.
“As women, we tend to be very hard on ourselves,” she began in the caption, going on to briefly narrate her terrifying ordeal.
“Months ago, I escaped from a home invasion and in the process I was left with intense scaring on my stomach. Until now I’ve been so afraid to show these scars, and incredibly insecure about the way I look. But I now realize these scars are a part of my journey, and tell the story of who I am. I love my body, and I am proud to be in the place I am today.”
The comment section was quickly filled with positive remarks from netizens, including celebrities like Canadian model Winnie Harlow.
“They’re beautiful, and you’re beautiful,” Harlow wrote.
“Thank you for continuously sharing your journey and the message of self-love,” chimed in singer Justine Skye. “I really admire that about you [Heart emoji] You look amazing.”
Elisa was at an Airbnb she rented with nine friends in the San Fernando Valley area of L.A when two armed meN staged an invasion, according to TMZ.
The intruders reportedly held the occupants at gunpoint and shoved them around the house. They eventually made away with a Rolex and other jewelry, cash, and electronic devices worth between $30,000 and $40,000.
Elisa, 24, was reportedly in a bedroom when she heard the commotion and escaped through a sliding glass door to get help from a neighbor down the street.
