Cookie Johnson Says She Already Knew Son E.J. Was Gay Before He Came Out: ‘It wasn’t a big deal.’

It’s been two years since the son of legendary basketball hall of famer Magic Johnson and wife Cookie Johnson has come out to the public and announced that he was gay and he didn’t want to hide his sexuality at all.

In the two years since E.J. has come out publicly, he has transformed his appearance physically and fashionably, even dropping over 180 pounds. Since his weight loss he has slayed the internet with his often flamboyant attire. Some would even say “He looks like he’s about to shoot a Phillis Hyman tribute album” in his latest pic.

Both Cookie and Magic publicly spoke in support of their son’s decision to come out and have given E.J. their unwavering support. In an interview Cookie told Huffington post,

“We had already dealt with it years ago, so for us it wasn’t a big deal. For it to be public is fine because he is gay and its okay. We’re not trying to hide and he never tried to hide it. When he was a little boy a mother kinda knows these things. And we grew and when finally he was at the teenage age, we had the conversation with him and he said yes. To me the most important thing, is to let them know that you love them and make sure to let them know that you’re okay with them and you’re gonna support them no matter what. 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? So it was important for us to make sure that he knew…that we loved him and we supported him 100 percent. Because of that I think he had the confidence to be who he was.”

Here are a few signs that may have been a dead ringer for E.J.’s mom that he was gay:

10. When his first words were “OH NO SHE DIDN’T”!

9. When E.J. wouldn’t fall asleep until his mother played ‘I’m Every Woman’ by Chaka Khan.

8.When He was a baby and didn’t stop crying until his baby clothes coordinated.

7.When he refused to stop sucking his pacifier until he was 19 , But refused to breast feed as a baby.

6.His superior interior decoration skills at an early age.

5. When he told his parents he like balls but not sports.

4. When he knew how to color the rainbow better than any other pre-k student in school.

3. When his favorite hiding place was always the closet.

2.When he learned to twerk before he could walk.

1.When he joined the basketball team but never left the shower area.
