Magic Johnson’s Wife Says It Was Important For Gay Son E.J. To Know He Had Their Support

ej-johnson“We had already dealt with it years ago, so for us it wasn’t a big deal. A mother kinda knows these things… To me, the most important thing is to let them know that you love them. These kids need that kind of support, they don’t want to be ostracized especially at home with their own families…and why should they be? So it was important for us to make sure that he knew…that we loved him and we supported him 100 percent.”
