Magic Johnson said that he still talks to his adult sons, Andre and EJ, about how to act when interacting with police officers.

Magic Johnson, who was born in 1959, reached legendary status during his playing days with the LA Lakers, dominating the basketball courts for over a decade.

He retired from the LA Lakers in 1991 after announcing that he was HIV positive, although he came back for a final season in 1996. Johnson is married to Cookie, with whom he shares two kids.

Cookie and Johnson share a son, Earvin "EJ" Johnson, and a daughter, Elisa Johnson, whom they adopted. Andre, the basketballer's oldest child, is from a previous relationship with a former girlfriend, Melissa Mitchell.

While Andre prefers to stay away from the eyes of the public, his younger siblings, EJ and Elisa, are quite popular, with EJ being a star of the reality series, "Rich Kids of Beverly Hills," while Elisa is into fashion.

EJ Johnson came out as gay in 2013, and since then, he has seized his place in the gender revolution with his fame and sense of fashion.

Recently, the world has been plagued by protests following the death of 46-year-old George Floyd while in police custody.

Speaking about the incident, Magic Johnson said that he still talks to his adult sons, Andre and EJ, about how to act when interacting with police officers, to remain safe, adding that what happened to George Floyd could happen to anyone else.
