Magic Johnson’s son son, Earvin “E.J.”Johnson III, was spotted walking and holding hands with an unidentified man on the Sunset Strip on Monday, April 1.
Meanwhile, parents Magic and Cookie showed their approval and support to their son. “Cookie and I love and support t him in every way,” the 53-year-old former Los Angeles Lakers player said of his 20-year-old son. “We’re very proud of him.”
E.J. wasn’t the first Johnsons to be rumored as a gay. Revealing his HIV status back in 1991, Magic was rumored as either gay or bisexual, and had contracted HIV by having sex with an HIV-positive male partner. He then retired in the same year and became a vocal advocate for HIV/AIDS prevention and funding ever since.
