Magic Jonhson’s son Earvin Johnson III is coming to reality TV.
According to reports, the basketball legend’s only son will be featured on a new E! series titled “Rich Kids of Beverly Hills.” As the title suggests, the show will follow five young adults as they flaunt their wealth and designer bags on camera.
“You’ll see me doing the absolute worst with all my crazy friends,” E.J. said during a recent hosting gig on E!’s Fashion Police.
As we reported earlier, the 20-year-old NYU student came out of the closet earlier this year and his family publicly supported him.
“I don’t care about the backlash, if somebody doesn’t agree, that’s just tough on them. I’m gonna love my son until the end,” Magic told The Grio. “He has a right to decide who he wants to be, who he wants to date, and who he wants to marry, and he has decided that that’s a man, and that’s okay by us.”
“I always wanted to come into the spotlight,” E.J. added. “I always had dreams and plans of doing my own thing and creating my own image, so it came a little sooner than I thought it would but this is still something I knew I would be going through and would have to experience.”
Looks like this will be the younger Johnson’s time to shine. Do you plan to tune in?
