LOS ANGELES (PIX11) — Magic Johnson’s 20-year-old son EJ was spotted walking along a Los Angeles street Monday, holding hands with his apparent boyfriend.
TMZ cameras captured the far-from-shy couple as they made their way down the Sunset Strip. The pair made their relationship no secret.
With a purse hanging from one hand, EJ made it clear he was confident and had nothing to be ashamed of. In fact, his parents couldn’t be proud.
“Cookie and I love EJ and support him in every way,” Magic Johnson told the celebrity website. “We’re very proud of him.”
Magic has long been a supporter of gay rights, at one point even urging Californians to vote against Proposition 8, calling it unfair and wrong in a recorded telephone message to residents.
