Basketball legend Magic Johnson said a recent photograph of his son walking the Sunset Strip, dressed in fur coat and swinging a handbag — and holding hands with his boyfriend — doesn’t bother him.

In fact, he’s proud of his son, Earvin “E.J.” Johnson III, 20, no matter what, TMZ reports.

“Cookie and I love E.J. and support him in every way,” he said to TMZ. “We’re very proud of him.”

TMZ captured the son walking with the unidentified man in a photo, then followed up with a contact to the father, seeking comment, Yahoo reports.


The Daily Beast reports that E.J. attends New York University and has a tight relationship with his father.
