Earvin Johnson III, aka EJ, is a man who needs no introduction. He’s a socialite, TV personality, and all-around fabulous human being. Born in 1992 (the same year Magic retired from the NBA), EJ is now 31-years-old and a proud Gemini. He’ll be celebrating his 28th birthday on June 4th, so mark your calendars!
You might recognize EJ from his time on the hit reality show The Rich Kids of Beverly Hills, where he was one of the standout stars. But before he became a TV personality, EJ was already in the spotlight as the second son of basketball legend Earvin “Magic” Johnson. EJ’s mother is Magic’s wife, Earlitha “Cookie” Johnson, so you could say that fame runs in the family.
EJ attended New York University, where he pursued his passion for event planning and hospitality. He graduated with a degree in Event Planning and Hospitality, which is no surprise given his impeccable taste and eye for detail.
In 2013, EJ made headlines when he came out to his family as gay at the age of 17. At first, he and his mother Cookie were worried about how Magic would react, but they needn’t have been. Magic was overjoyed that EJ felt comfortable enough to share his truth with them, and he’s been a vocal advocate for LGBTQ+ rights ever since.
As a fun fact, 1992 was also the year that Magic announced he had HIV. Thankfully, EJ and Cookie both tested negative for the virus. It just goes to show that even in the face of adversity, this family knows how to stick together.
