Magic Johnson greets fan while on holiday in Portofino

Basketball legend Magic Johnson is apparently a father for the 4th time, according to the National Enquirer magazine. An Atlanta woman accuses the business mogul of fathering a secret love child — then cruelly turning his back on his son.

National Enquirer — That’s the claim of an Atlanta woman — who told The National ENQUIRER in a worldwide exclusive that Magic made a fast break out of her life in 1982 when she announced she was pregnant!

The shocking revelation was uncovered by The ENQUIRER just weeks after the HIV-positive horn-dog led a panel discussion at the Fifth Annual Ladylike Day at UCLA offering young girls “honest advice about romance and relationships.”

Now, Renee Perkins is finally speaking out about how the former Los Angeles Lakers star — who admitted to sleeping with “thousands of women,” including groupies, call girls and strippers — abandoned her and their now 35-year-old love child, Chauncey!

  • brooklyn23

    Ouch that was harsh. Sometimes if not most times its easy to put someone down when we don’t know their reasoning for waiting so long to let the cat out the bag. That’s in general whether it be rape, domestic violence or in this case being the mother to a son magic disregarded (allegedly)

  • Chardonnai

    My gay cousin (who hiding in the closet) on FB capping for Eddie Long. He went to the funeral. I wanna comment so bad. But I know I’m gonna start some shyt if I do. He’s daddy a pastor and he calls himself a minister. Fake ass. He probably had a few sugar daddies as a teen too.

    My fingers are itching to say, so you defending a pedophile?

    Paris Jackson: “I Consider Myself Black”

    Paris is certain that Michael Jackson was her biological dad. She believes it with a fervency that is both touching and, in the moment, utterly convincing. “He is my father,” she says, making fierce eye contact. “He will always be my father. He never wasn’t, and he never will not be. People that knew him really well say they see him in me, that it’s almost scary.

    “I consider myself black,” she says, adding later that her dad “would look me in the eyes and he’d point his finger at me and he’d be like, ‘You’re black. Be proud of your roots.’ And I’d be like, ‘OK, he’s my dad, why would he lie to me?’ So I just believe what he told me. ‘Cause, to my knowledge, he’s never lied to me.

  • Sucker Free

    Lol…I think his hair is real

  • Yoni

    Yeah, real fake.

  • CaliVirgo
  • Chardonnai

    I just posted the eyes emoji. Let him know I see him.

    My sister and I caught his ass with a group of gay dudes. It was soooooooooo funny. My sister had came to visit me and we went down town to site see. What are the odds that he is walking down the street with his wifebeater on showing his nipples twisting down the street.

    I was like why you didnt tell me you was in town. You could have came to visit me. He looked like he had seen a ghost. It was sooooooo funny. God wanted me and my sister to see that. Cause if we would have stayed in a store or turned down a different street we would have missed him.

  • nucynu25

    lmao

  • Sucker Free

    She sounds defensive. Bless her heart

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    She is probably a crackhead who needed a quick buck for a fix.

    None of what you mentioned would preclude waiting almost 36 years to reveal a secret.

    BTW why would someone want to be associated with someone who’s been HIV+ for almost 25 years.

    Discretion is always better.

  • Chardonnai

    Good for Magic. He finally got somebody he can play BB with.

  • Chardonnai

    Her daddy aint even use his real sperm. She’s delusional.

    So why is she shaming herself just to get some shine?
    She needs to go quietly into retirement and leave her past indiscretions there too.

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    What people do in the dark always comes to the light…

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    They broke the John Edwards love child story, and the Gary Hart monkey business story, among others.
    Not everything they come out with is a lie. They do get it right sometimes on some big stories.

  • SaltineCrackers

    Nice looking guy, but we’re going to need some dna test results.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    He was laying it low and spreading it wide, it’s very possible.

  • SaltineCrackers

    Smh, in real life that man is a messy queen. Not gay tho just messy.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I passed on him and saw through that facade a while ago, so when he showed his natural azz… wasn’t even slightly surprised by it. He has some deep seeded hate that he tries to spit in the guise of knowledge.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Overly messy!!

  • SaltineCrackers

    Does that nyc paternity truck guy travel ??

  • Keekz

    ???

    Im just see him cuss somebody out like huh? umar, What just turnt me off. not the message just the man himself, i just clicked off, like wow umar Really

  • Renee26

    LMAO…walking down the street FLAMING but still trying to hide it…tell him “just be you boo…we love you regardless”

  • Anunnaki

    he seems to very narcissist now, and over board his ego is awful…I cant , guess ill have to find someone else

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong
  • Zizzle

    The National Enquirer. Has this been verified by a credible source?

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    He was proud to black, just not proud of Joe’s features. That man destroyed those kids!!

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    If she wants to be black, I say let her. If she goes as far as marrying a black man…..even better. Shoot, it is plenty of black folks that want to be white so bad it kills them….and she wants to be a race that is despised? Well let her then. But the moment shiat gets hard and she do a Mariah (Tommy M. era), I am on her azz!!!

  • Are we there yet

    THAT HURRRRRRRR

  • Annamaria

    Let me get this straight. This article comes from the National Inquirer where they make up stuff like Sandra is now doing?

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Her son is 35……what is she hoping to accomplish with this? Magic been in the public eye and ain’t been in hiding, so why now? Shiat EJ been needed a big brother figure, so why now? What is the point Renee? I am not buying the rag paper to find out.

  • SaltineCrackers

    Since the majority of all the og’s in the “conscious community” died there’s no one left who can effectively check him, so he’s been left to his own devices. He literally thinks he’s the chosen one, but he’s nothing more than a well spoken fraud.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong
  • Soda

    Sure. I guess he didn’t like the features of Black women either.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    General Seti got under that skin though

  • Anunnaki

    lol, yea he has lost his mind, he always saying how he is the most of the most, who does that…

  • Bob Dilla

    And Arnold too…

  • LexGirl

    And we all know that the National Enquirer is NEVER wrong or run stories that they KNOW to be false!!!

  • Tonia Hannah

    Who cares as long as Cookie (his wife)is ok with it im fine lol.

  • Browneyes

    Magic has a son older than EJ that he actually claims from Michigan. He already has a grandchild

  • Browneyes
  • bemetoo

    Hope he’s not they…then you know its something in papas tank other than infection

  • Concerned

    Hey Sandra. Can we please get an Open Post? There’s something I’ve been wanting to share with the Roses and get their opinion.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Maybe, may not or he just wanted his children to NOT have any of those features he had grown to hate. I firmly believe Michael loved black people, but hated a large part of himself.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Every post is open chile…have at it :popcorn:

  • jazmine

    He has a regular son lol even gave him grand kids

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Sooooo, he told the world he had HIV, but denied he fathered a son outside of his marriage?????? Don’t make sense to me.

  • Luv Pitties

    Rahson Delay has a YouTube channel

  • Low E. TUH!

    I USUALLY FILTER THROUGH WHAT HE’S SAYING…LIKE YOU SAID “IN THE GUISE OF”…

  • Emily post

    I don’t wanna laugh cause I like ej… ?

  • SaltineCrackers

    LOL word

  • Concerned

    Oh, my bad. Now I’m not saying this is racist. But I just wanna hear everyone else’s experience.

    I’ve been traveling through England for about 2 months now. Initially I thought everyone was delightful then bit by bit them inner devils started coming out. It’s the hotels that we have a problem with. mostly in London.

    So firstly they’ll put you in a room on the other side of the hotel, right at the end where nobody would hear you scream. Now if you know these English buildings you’ll know they are a maze to get around and we’ve asked every single time to be moved closer to the elevator (because of our luggage). And there was always a better room available. One hotel even gave us a twin room when we specifically booked something else. And there’s never any apology.

    Then today I’m checking in at the Hilton and let the lady know I’m part of the honors program (should entitle me to free wifi) and this lady creates the wildest story about how I can’t get the free wifi. Like wtf this is not my first time, I know the rules. I was too tired to deal with her but eventually came back down and a nicer gentleman helped me.

    Then sometimes when you’re a walk in you’re quoted a completely different rate from the pale guy just before you. Your rate is higher. What on earth is that about?

    I don’t know, maybe I’m just getting sensitive in my old age but I do not feel that welcome here.

  • Soda

    I don’t doubt he hated a large part of himself, mainly his largest organ, which just happened to turn white when his facial features did.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    And, this woman bypassed forcing a paternity test in the court of law, where he at least would have had a financial obligation to their son if proven?

  • samuel severino

    The Enquirer is extremely credible. One of the best out. Notice that no one ever sues them. They threaten too but they never do.
    Hell, most of them are too scared too even call them out by name. They just say “the tabloids” because The Enquirer has successfully sued hundreds of people who have slandered them.

  • samuel severino

    You are wrong. The Enquirer does not make stuff up. They are fiercely protective of their name. People back down when their stuff is put in there because they do not want more damaging info to come out.

  • Isignedup4this

    Forgive me Sandra if this has been asked previously (I am just stoppin’ thru and don’t have time to read all the previous comments), BUT WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY is there a photo of present-day Magic dappin’ up a youngster – as if to insinuate the youngster is the “love child” in question – when the write-up states this alleged abandoned child was conceived in 1982?? You posting fake news? Alternative facts & photos? What would your “president” say???

  • http://www.Samanthagwrites.com Samantha G.

    He does have a fem child he fathered at the age of 14, which has been somewhat hush-hush. His first child, and when he became a big basketball player, allegedly he negotiated child payments until she turned 18. When she turned 18, she went to the NI because he never ignored her. He was out of her life. There’s probably more babies out there. Muhammad Ali is rumored to have several out of wedlock children.

  • GuestSTAR

    Yeah, I heard Ali sired a few in Manilla when he was out there training for ‘The Thrilla In Manilla’.

  • kekeb

    I was wondering the SAME thing.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Plenty did but none looked as good as he did . Plus didn’t he say his couldn’t be detected ?

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    In another article she said she did have one and it was proven but the lab said they lost it because moved so many times ???? !!!!! She doesn’t seem to bright .

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    It’s really bad in Scotland!!! Imagine explaining you are part Scottish and your great great grandfather was Scottish and you are there to get something taken care for your family but you are black ! No matter if my sister and I had light skin and red hair and freckles we still were black and stood out . We were glad when our mom did come ! There is just a few blacks there and I felt so unwelcome by mostly everyone.

  • guestbailee

    he sure does! Her name is Tamika Bozeman. She’s a College Professor teaching at Oakland University here in Michigan. Everyone here from the D knows about her. She’s a split image of him and the sad thing about it is that she has 2 kids, twins-girl & boy that he doesn’t acknowledge either!! SMH. How can you ignore your first born and only grandchildren(smirk) I have ZERO respect for his sorry arse! Im just curious if he’s going to acknowledge her & his grandkids now being that her son Damon that attended Saginaw Valley State is now playing
    Pro Basketball oversees. Ooowee, this shall be interesting. Knowing Magic, he’ll try to take credit for it. smfh

  • guestbailee

    Word??? I didn’t even know that. I thought his daughter that he had with a 14 year old childhood friend, was the only one with kids

  • che’lint

    That is the cold truth.

  • Yetunde

    It sounds like you’re in Central London, most of those hotels are run by people from other places in Europe who have preconceived negative ideas about black people. I was born and raised in London, and while I agree that there is a problem here with racism, I must say it has improved greatly over the last 15 years. British people are just as racist as Americans, they’re just less open about it.

  • Yetunde

    He does, he has a son from a relationship prior to his marriage to Cookie. I didn’t think this was a secret.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Oh. Well… I’m not a fan. All I know is, he has a STD and a weird son.

  • Zizzle

    The Enquirer is extremely credible…

    It’s as simple as that

  • ShelleDC

    He does his name is Andre and he was born in 81.

  • ShelleDC

    It’s not Andre is his oldest son.

  • ShelleDC

    He has other grand kids by his oldest son Andre.

  • ShelleDC

    Andre is the son this story is talking about, and he is head of his fathers Businesses. I thought everyone knew about his oldest son.

  • ShelleDC

    Exactly his oldest son was born in ’81, his name is Andre and they have a relationship.

  • ShelleDC

    Thank you, I thought everyone knew about Andre

  • Naila Thrower

    Test? Which test DNA OR HIV?? I just don’t get how you get pregnant by an HIV positive man but not contract HIV. I thought it was a fluke when Cookie didnt get it but no other woman has come out sense claiming Magic gave her HIV?? I mean payoff?? Maybe. But “1000’s of groupies” thats a lot of payoffs. Still the original question, how come she’s not HIV positive??
