Magic Johnson’s Wife Cookie Supports Her Gay Son
With all the horrible stories you hear of kids being kicked out of their homes after their families find out they’re gay, it’s really refreshing to find positive stories of parents who stand by their kids. Earlier this week, Cookie Johnson, Magic Johnson’s wife went on Huff Post LIVE to say just how much she loved her son EJ, no matter his sexual orientation.
Cookie says there wasn’t really a question about her son being gay. “A mother kind of knows these things,” she explained. And while he’d been out to the family for a long time, it wasn’t public knowledge until TMZ outed him earlier this year.
The mom and businesswoman went on to say it’s really all about love. “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?” EJ is lucky to have such a loving, open and supportive family–and a mom who lets him borrow her fabulous designer bags.
