Magic Johnson's son EJ Johnson appeared very happy and comfortable with his new self, following a Gastric sleeve surgery which aided his weight loss through the years. 


Magic Johnson's son, EJ Johnson, known to be overweight for a long time, looked very happy with his new self appearing on "The Wendy Williams Show" after losing over one hundred pounds of weight.

On the show, EJ revealed that getting weight loss surgery was a tool to jump-start into the life he had always wanted to live and being the best version of himself.

The fashion mogul admitted that his extra weight was something he had to deal with and losing it was a push in the right direction, totally altering his mindset.

Losing so much weight was an added advantage to the "Rich Kids of Beverly Hills" star's fashion drive. He admitted how he was all about showing skin and going for provocative wears following his weight loss.


Showing skin is a definite thing for the 23-year-old with various posts of him on Instagram attesting to this fact. In one of the posts, the star donned a long black dress with a slit exposing his bright brown legs. 

The thighs appear to be one of EJ's major strengths as another post saw him dazzling in a white top over tiny blue jean shorts, topping it off with a pair of golden gladiator sandals.

He had to dedicate himself to consistent workout sessions and food regimens, cutting down on high sugar and fat diets.


A majority of his fans and followers seemed not to be impressed with his outfit, rushing to the comments section to offer displeased thoughts and reactions to his choice of appearance.

However, EJ has decided to push negative comments behind and stick to positivity, constantly releasing dazzling snapshots of himself in beautiful feminine attires.


The actor admitted to Justin Sylvester on the "Just the Sip" podcast how he had grown more comfortable with himself. Being able to take control of one's life can be empowering and this was the case of the fashion blogger. 

To stick to his comfort and new identity, he had to dedicate himself to consistent workout sessions and food regimens, cutting down on high sugar and fat diets.

Despite having his entire family as his support system, EJ admitted it has not been easy but having control over his weight, his life, and his health feels good.
