EJ attends NYU and is quite close with his father as Magic told TMZ, "Cookie and I love EJ and support him in every way. We're very proud of him." Magic Johnson has been public with his support for gay rights for several years. In November 2008, he lent his voice to the “No on Prop. 8” campaign and recorded a telephone call for California voters urging them to vote note on the ban on same-sex marriage.
