Magic Johnson Talks About Gay Son

Supports him

|

Magic Johnson made headlines this week after he announced his support for his 20-year-old gay son, Earvin "EJ" Johnson III. Although this was the public's first look into the Johnson family's life, Magic and his wife, Cookie, have long supported the EJ for exactly who he is.

The former Los Angeles Lakers superstar said he knew EJ was gay before he told him. So when his son was about 13 years old, he sat him down to have "the talk."
