EJ Johnson is not only the son of Lakers legend and HIV/AIDS activist Earvin ‘Magic’ Johnson; he’s best known as a fashion icon.
According to Daily Mail, the star of Rich Kids of Beverly Hills recently dropped 180 pounds with the help of gastric bypass surgery, and from the look of it, he’s loving the skin he’s in.
'My style has changed drastically,' he revealed in 2017. 'I’m always scantily clad or showing skin and wearing bodycon stuff.'
'This is the way I’ve always wanted to dress and I can pretty much fit into anything I want. I am just having literally a ball. Walking outside is so exciting for me now.'
The 26-year-old son of Magic Johnson rocked in a recent picture posted on his Instagram in which he is wearing a blue and white tight-fitting mini dress showcasing his long legs
When EJ came to the public light as part of the LGBT community, the famous athlete felt nothing but love for his son. And he advises all parents of gay children to respond the same way.
'I think it's all about you not trying to decide what your daughter or son should be or what you want them to become. It's all about loving them no matter who they are, what they decide to do,' Magic Johnson told Ellen DeGeneres on April 2017.
'When my son came out, I was so happy for him and happy for us as parents. We love him. EJ is amazing,' he continued
According to The New York Times, Cookie says she and Magic have known for a long time that their son was gay. She says since EJ was 3 or 4 years old, he loved to wear dresses and dance around.
EJ’s mother, a churchgoing Christian, was initially conflicted when he came out. She struggled initially to reconcile the Christian teachings about homosexuality with the love she felt for her son.
Nowadays, both parents are publicly supportive, but EJ has stopped attending the West Angeles Church of God in Christ, where his parents are star congregants. Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa.
