Magic Johnson’s son, EJ, one of the stars of the #RichKids of Beverly Hills, recently revealed extreme weight loss.
“It’s definitely somewhere far over 100 [lbs],” EJ told Wendy Williams earlier this month. He explained, from his starting weight, “I mean like, literally, almost half my size.” He lost the weight in 8 months.
EJ admits to getting gastric sleeve surgery. Which he calls a “tool” in his weight loss journey.
“It was not something that was the easy way out by any means,” insists EJ. “This is not something that you do and then all of a sudden everything is gone and you’re skinny and you’re a new person. It’s definitely a tool and something that you have to work at.”
EJ revealed his reason for getting the surgery: “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.”
The reality star admitted, “It’s something that I struggled with and I needed that push in the right direction. And now my mindset is completely changed.”
