EJ Johnson, the flamboyant youngest son of NBA legend Magic Johnson, said his father broke down and cried when he came out as gay.

EJ and his mother, Cookie Johnson, were guests of Jada Pinkett-Smith on Monday's episode of Red Table Talk.

“We had the talk with Dad and that was a little tough,” Cookie, 59, told Jada. “My husband is the kind of person like he reacts quickly. Everything that came to the top of his head, he just let it out.”

Cookie said Magic didn't take the news well.

“It hurt my feelings and I know it probably hurt [EJ’s] feelings.” Cookie recalled Magic, 58, saying, “This is not what I wanted for my son. And do you realize what you’re saying because the world is not going to like that and do you want to live this life?"

Cookie, who knew her son was gay (a mother always knows) said she and Magic sat down and talked about his outburst.

Afterwards, I told him, I said, ‘I thought that was a little tough. That wasn’t right.’ Then he didn’t say anything,” Cookie said.

    I would break down crying too if my son came out as gay. I totally understand what Magic is feeling. I would of had/have the same reaction....Like I said some place before....When my son was in my belly, the kicks I felt had Timbo's on his feet- not no dam stilettos....I catch myself checking his sexuality often........JUST TO MAKE SURE......He affirmed me that the only thing "Funny" about him is his JOKES.....

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Well

  • Fire & Ice

    And he still ain't happy about it. Magic is putting on for the politically correct society, that we now live in. I like Magic, but I believe he's been with a man before. In his autobiography, he said that sex went from one woman, to two and three-four women in the bedroom. It was obvious that he was bored and looking for the next thrill. The next thing is men. People like this are always looking for the next high.

  • Joy King

    No need to cry because his son is gay but those outfits he chooses to wear for his figure, are questionable at best.

  • Mrs.Meenie

    Magic's reaction is totally understood. His only son, the son who could have carried on his legacy is telling him that he wants to be a relationship where procreation is not possible. Feel bad for the man, he has been thru a lot.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Mama still checking!!! LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!

  • HalleMerry

    Call me ignorant,but to this very day I don't understand why gay males are attracted to 'feminine' men,and Lesbians are attracted to 'studs'...??? Can someone PLEASE explain this to my simple a$&...

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Magic has another son and Magic is a closet case.

    The only reason that Magic would have cried if he had found out is that either he was jealous that his son was going to be open with his sexuality as he never was or Magic was fearful that his son will be rejected--the same fear that keeps Magic in the closet.

  • Intellectual by Nature!

    I completely understand his honest, raw reaction. A man envisions so many things for his sons.To be gay and black can mean many hurdles to overcome. I wonder If deep down he knew all along but was in denial?

  • Anunnaki

    Sandra explained it to me...it was something like girls with daddy issues, and men with mom issues.....i think thats how it goes

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    And unfortunately I wont stop. I only have 1 son and 1 daughter. I want grandkids too. I have no problems with the gay lifestyle.......AS LONG AS MY 2 KIDS ARE NOT PARTICIPATING IN IT......And I'm not sorry about that.......

  • HalleMerry

    Soooo....Huh??

  • Blue

    I broke down and cried the first time I saw EJ in spandex. So I get it.

  • Anunnaki

    Yep, i just left it alone..?

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    lmmfao.....in agreement.......

  • Bonita
  • MissHarlem

    This is obvious we all knew he felt a type of way. EJ does the damn most and it's highly annoying. I know you love dck but is it necessary to dress in a smedium everyday to make sure we all know you love dck?!!

  • kennedy220

    if he did come out...or say it was a girl and she came out...I know you said you would break down crying...would you put them out the house or live with? just curious...I recently came across a 17year old that said he was close with his dad...but once he came out....his dad kicked him out of the house...his dad's new girlfriend also had an influence with his dad's decision. anyway the boy was out on the streets and this drag queen came up while we were talking and was like well I'm about to teach you how to survive on the streets and said you're going to start tricking....of course there's more to the story than that but the basis...and now the boy is living off of survival sex. so I'm just curious how others would handle a situation like that or anything similar

  • Ghost

    LOL....with forehead in hand...

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    WHY THE FUCK YOU ALMOST MADE ME SPIT OUT MY FOOD........LMMFAO

  • HalleMerry

    Hmmmm,tell us more!! You can't just come up in here bashing a LAKER,We need the Tea..

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    It's simple. Butch lesbians who didn't bond with their fathers develop an attachment disorder that manifests itself in various ways when they get older.

    Children need love and affection from their opposite sex parent. One of the ways they cope with that lost bond is to become their fathers.

    Same thing with sons who didn't bond with their mothers. They become their mothers.

    I hope that helps.

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    Bonita, you need your arse whooped for this.........lmmfao again about to choke.......

  • hi-liter

    Yeah....I’m pretty sure he did break down. He thought his big, strong, strapping son would be busting azzes on the B-ball court....

  • Bonita

    Aahhhaaahhaa

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Part 2.
    Lesbians who didn't bond with their mothers or fathers seek out women who fill the role of both parents. Thus, a woman might be attracted to a stud lesbian (father) who also has a soft side (mother). Homosexuality is a coping mechanism and a symptom of a larger disorder.

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    My son will be 17 in December......Lord forbid, but if he was gay and came out to me I would demand 1 thing- as long as he lives with me.......HE CANNOT LOOK FEMININE AT ALL......HE MUST LIVE THAT LIFE OUTSIDE MY HOME.....I WILL NOT LOOK AT HIM WITH MAKE UP/WIGS/DRESSES ETC.......those are the mandatory house rules........trust me- he would move away from me quickly.......

  • Bonita

    Lol

  • joel adams

    Well I be damn .

I realized while baby sitting my cousin why I could never go outside and play lol. I'm older now and there's a kid in the neighborhood I was trying to help steer in the right direction and he was constantly messing up and I thought about this again...how you're never really trained for certain outcomes.

    You need to go to youtube and google Magic and Isaiah Thomas.

    They always blew air kisses at each other at the beginning of games and Isaiah's son is gay too.

    It's funny because I was watching ESPN or something and they showed Magic back in the day strutting around in a fur coat and I was ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh k.

    Is he gay or transgendered?

    Does he still have his frank and beans?

    Why won't he wear a wig?

  • BadAss Will

    A father know at an early age aswell, they just be in denial. My oldest brother said he knewbi was gay at 5. His 3rd son is gay and he always said when his son was young like oh man my son gay, I'm gonna have whoop niggas ass to protect my son like I did you.... That's unconditional love..

  • HalleMerry

    Some people say that a part of being gay is genetic...Hmmm.What are you hiding,Magic?

    Isaiah's son is gay too?

    Let me tell you, i HATED Isaiah Thomas, and let me tell you why! that lil bish was the reason Adrian Dantley got traded, so Isaiah and Magic could be in the play offs AND Isaiah could bring in their 3some buddy, Mark Aguirre!! i despised them for doing my dude like that 'cause he was a solid player (and beautiful to look at, LOL). https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/badc8fdbd111558d8ec3b51116a5f1f8ea52ec77ce99823832640bc152c609c2.jpg

    Exactly...is he transjennered?

  • SweetTEE

    My cousin is 36.. just found out that his 13 year old son is gay. I mean really gay. Like getting caught in school with boys and on dating sites with older men. Just told us that he was molested but wont say by whom. The ish is heartbreaking and he is having a hard time dealing.

    Meanwhile, my mammy is gay and I cried when I found out. Not bc shes gay, but bc she has always trashed gay people and I CAUGHT her having sex in the house with a girl 2 years my senior. I cried bc I lost all respect.

    Everyone deserves to live their truth, but your truth can also be damaging to those around you.

    They're in counseling now. Sad thing is that we think it's his mom's ex. My cousin didn't find out he had a son until the boy was 8. His mom had her felon boyfriend thinking he was the dad. Anyway, the ex boyfriend is always in and out of jail and is also the only male he was left alone with growing up.

    It's difficult for a man to acquire HIV/AIDS through heterosexual intercourse. That's all I'm going to say about THAT.

    I knew this little boy as a kid, but I hadn't seen him in years. He transferred to the school where i worked and i was like just like wtf happened, smh. He was sooo flaming. A few years later, i was walking across campus where i work now, he was walking toward me, i was trying to determine whether the person was a boy or girl. When he spoke to me and i realized who he was, i was floored. His hips had spread just like a woman (i didn't know boys hips could spread) and he had on hoop earrings. I knew his family well growing up and hated to see him like that. I was told it was his stepfather too that did that to him.

    He's 11 years older than EJ. He worked for magic for awhile but he stays out the limelight. I think Magic doesn't talk about him much because he tried to create that perfect family the image with Cookie for his public image.

    I feel like I read this a long time ago for some reason. I could easily see this happening though.

  • Ang

    He should be embarrassed of EJ putting his bad parenting on display on The Rich Kids of Beverly Hills. The kids being spoiled, entitled brats turned a lot of people off but I could overlook that to an extent since you expect it from a show with that title but they were too obnoxious. EJ was the worst of all of them. EJ was a complete materialistic, rude, elitist jerk. The way he treated people made me question what Magic and Cookie are really like. How do you throw shade at your bff because she drove one of the cheaper Mercedes? I don't know how anyone could tolerate him. Magic's daughter was a little...interesting. Who raised the kids?

    OT: I want to know why giphy always has EJ gifs labeled as Beverly Johnson. That's not cool.

    "The fact that EJ is his only son I know he was devastated"

    EJ is NOT Magic's only son. He has an older son named Andre Johnson that is 37.

    " If magic was hiv positive back then,he should have full blown aids by now. But I forgot he was miraculously cure."

    U can live a long healthy life being HIV positive without it turning into AIDS. if U take care of yourself correctly with the right medications and treatments. Magic WAS NOT CURED!

    He himself cleared that up YEARS ago in a interview with the GREAT Oprah.

  • Jennifer

    I call BS. The kind of gay EJ is shows itself EARLY! He's the grown up version of the little boy in pre-school that liked to jump rope and cried when forced to play sports!

    You're probably right. I think a lot of people let EJ get away with things because they don't want people think they're saying something because he's gay. That's probably why EJ is so full of himself.

    You mean the bisexuals? Everyone responds differently to the lack of parental bonding. Not everyone will grow up to be gay. Some grow up to be bisexuals. Some are heterosexuals with attachment issues. Some women seek out older men. It's not an exact science.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Human beings are born with reproductive organs to ensure the survival of the species. No human is born gay. Those of us who are lesbians need love and affection but we don't want to be with men. Same with gay men. They don't seek intimacy with women.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    A lot of gay guys are close to their mothers. Boys who have bonding issues with their fathers will grow up to seek intimacy from men.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    There were likelu issues when they were younger. Take EJ for example, he is close with his father... now.

    ive never understood the whole cross dressing/ trans thing...its ok to be gay, that doesnt mean u have to live ya life pretending to be another sex....thats mental illness...im sure thats the most embarrassing thing for Magic....EJ wit all that height in some damn heels ?

  • NeverSurprised

    In the interview Cookie said she knew when he was three. He wanted to dress up as a princess and wanted to wear Cookie's shoes, etc.

    But some parents see what they want too see. On some level Magic knew but he didn't want too see it.

    It is important not to confuse cross-dressing with homosexuality. EJ is a cross-dresser AND he is gay. The two behaviors are not the same.

    Most cross-dressers are heterosexual. Their wives usually find out about their clothing fetish years later. Bruce Jenner is an example of a heterosexual cross-dresser.

  • Taj

    Cross-dressers and transgenderism are not the same. Cross-dressers are people (mostly men) who wear the clothing of the opposite sex to resolve their feelings if inadequacy. Transgenderism is a mental disorder.

    So my oldest brother is gay... he had a different mom and a great relationship with my dad. His mom is a drop down alcoholic, and he actually claims my mom as his mother on all outlets, social media included. He's not flaming, he doesn't "act" gay, switch, smack, flip his wrists, none of that. Actually, if you didn't know him, you wouldn't tell, UNTIL you met his other half.

  • NeverSurprised

    Lol. You're bad. ??

  • NeverSurprised

    True, but I'm just telling you what the boy's mama said:

    "Cookie said she first noticed her son with Magic Johnson wasn't like most boys at the age of three, when "he started wanting to put on the princess costumes at school." She noted he'd also put on her shoes, pay special attention to his grandmother's clothes and, when they had him play baseball, he paid more attention to the flowers in the field than the game."

  • NeverSurprised

    I'm no fan of Magic, but the story doesn't end there. Tell the rest of it.

    After giving it some thought Magic had another conversation with his son:

    "After Cookie told him his reaction was a little harsh, Magic had another conversation with his son the next day. "[He] just was like, we're gonna get through this, I just need time and we both just started crying a little bit," EJ explained. "But then, I moved to New York to go to college and when he came back to visit, he picked me up for dinner and was like ... he hugged me so hard, he almost broke my back and then at that point I was like, we're gonna be okay. I could really feel the love. We're gonna be fine."

  • Upside Risk

    "It's difficult for a man to acquire HIV/AIDS through heterosexual intercourse. That's all I'm going to say about THAT."
    ... it's very easy for black people to acquire HIV. Please see the stats on people who died of AIDS. It has killed millions and millions of heterosexual black people around the world and only hundreds of thousands of white gay guys. But just because it affected some gay guys they hijack the agenda

  • Upside Risk

    Not true. Please look up the stats for black people around the world. More black straight people got it and died than anyone else. This is a black heterosexual disease that white people have us thinking is not our problem.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    No. Because celebrities are narcissists who care more about their careers than their kids.

    Well at least they are still a family. Some people disown their children when they come out, it also appears EJ is allowed to be himself around them too, because he's not just gay, he's a cross dresser. Even if they mind, they let him be. They are not willing to lose their kid, good parents.

  • TDK

    It has nothing to do with genetics and everything to do with medical care, your mental health and exercising. Magic is HIV positive because he takes care of himself, mentally and physically and takes his medication(s).

  • Joy King

    Sandra, I respect you so much for saying this.

  • Bee jaay Cee

    Magic still is HIV positive. I used to teach classes on TB/AIDS. AIDS is the full blown disease and those people who have it usually die from opportunistic infections because they have a compromised immune system. We had a teen in a group home who was born with HIV. The medicine, of course courtesy of the govt., kept her Tcell levels high and at that stage HIV is almost undetected in the blood. Same for Magic. He is not miraculosly cured. He is still HIV positive.

    ````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````
    CD4 count (or T-cell test) - HIV/AIDS
    https://www.hiv.va.gov/patient/diagnosis/labs-CD4-count.asp

    These are the cells that the HIV virus kills. As HIV infection progresses, the number of these cells declines. When the CD4 count drops below 200, a person is diagnosed with AIDS. A normal range for CD4 cells is about 500-1,500.

  • Bee jaay Cee

    Cookie was on Oprah talking about when Magic told her he was HIV positive. She said afterwards he said he had to go in the bedroom and calI the people who he had sex with. Oprah jokingly said....I bet that took a couple of days. Cookie replied, "It did". I used that video as a teaching tool to the students in my TB/HIV Class.

  • the guest

    Jumped rope and cried when forced to play sports?

    More like wore the princess costume, wanted to be the mom when playing house, and only played with the kitchen set and baby dolls. They knew all along.

    Magic's tears are guilt tears. He neglected his son when he was out womanizing, philandering, and leaving his young son to comfort, sympathize and bond with his mom like a girl friend. EJ learned to resent desiring women because his father's desire for women hurt his mother by taking his father away.

    Not all son's close with their mother turn out gay. But EJ appears to look and act like, and model himself after the parent who he was friends with. Cookie talks about her son like he's her girl friend and I find it disturbing.

  • Diane

    MJ got HIV from having unprotected sex with a woman. Women, particularly black women, are disproportionately affected by HIV. It's 2018, we shouldn't be having this conversation, that is why so many black and brown people are becoming infected and hiding it.

  • Diane

    I teach an HIV class as well and now I will look up the video and show it. Thanks so much for sharing! I'ts 2018 and people are still so misinformed.

  • Diane

    I don't believe there is an higher percentage. I believe that it is easier for them to come out rather than hide and engage in dangerous behaviors don't you think?

  • Panther Charleston

    Did Magic say, "this life"? If he did say "this" all may not be as it seems. If he didn't say "that life," things may be a bit more understandable than what he's letting on.

  • http://www.pornhub.com BKFREEDOM007

    You are most ignorant, and ignorance is a leading contributor to the spread of all things ugly, including diseases and hate. My brother was infected via sexual intercourse with women even earlier than Magic. He, like you, paid the price for being ignorant; most arrogant pre- and post-diagnosis.

    I never said HIV/AIDS hasn't disproportionately impacted "black people" and I never said it was impossible for a heterosexual male to get HIV/AIDS from a woman. I said it was difficult.

    Most of my friends who died from AIDS, were bottoms. Long before the research was done, I noticed that trend. I speculated that the disease had a higher transmittal rate when spread through "back door action," because of the number of blood vessels in that area... much like a woman's vagina.
