EJ Johnson, the son of basketball star Magic Johnson, has been touring to promote his show #RichKids Of Beverly Hills, all while showing off his new body.
During his appearance on the Wendy Williams Show on May 5th, Wendy asked EJ just how much weight he had lost since his gastric sleeve surgery.
“It’s definitely somewhere far over 100,” EJ said. “I mean like literally almost half my size.”
He then went on to discuss the surgery itself.
“It was a tool,” EJ said. “And I think that it was something that really helped me jumpstart the life I definitely wanted to lead. I wanted to be the best me I can be and that’s always something I wanted to do. It’s something that I struggled with and I needed that push in the right direction. And now my mindset is completely changed.”
When Wendy said that he seemed like he would work to maintain his figure rather than gain back his weight, he exclaimed, “I’m holding on to the new me!”
It’s clear that EJ appreciates his look as he told Wendy, “I don’t think I’m going to need a skin graft. Everything is right and tight and in place. Trying to keep it that way.”
Congrats to EJ on the new look!
