EJ Johnson sure knows how to get attention. Soon after telling E! that he had no plans on transitioning into a woman, the star of Rich Kids Of Beverly Hills posed seductively in an Instagram snap.The TV darling was wearing a skimpy dress and covered his chest in a way women normally do to conceal their breasts.
The caption read ‘Queen of the night.’
The son of basketball great Magic Johnson added a necklace, short boots, and a silk jacket to his ensemble as he posed on a roof top.
The 23-year-old set the record straight about transitioning as he caught up with his gal pal Dorothy Wang, pointing out that that just because he likes to wear women’s clothing doesn’t mean he intends to transition.
‘All the people that are so quick to say, that like because I wear women’s wear sometimes that like means I’m transitioning!’, the reality star said.
Dorothy instantly chimed in that she would be asked by fans if EJ was transitioning when she posted photos of him to her own account.
‘If I come out in a Diane Sawyer interview and I’m like, “Diane, I just want to let the world know, I am becoming a woman.” Until that day, everyone needs to have a seat,’ EJ said.
‘People are just so ignorant and dumb sometimes,’ the son of Magic Johnson concluded.
The issue was broached by Dorothy after she encountered comments online which said his friends were worried about his slim weight.
EJ, who has recently transformed his look by shedding 180 pounds, laughed off the rumour.
‘A few comment at me,’ EJ said after Dorothy asked him if he received comments on Instagram. ‘Like, “I liked you before”, and I was like, well it’s not really about you. Like, if I want to look this way, like deal with it,’ he said.
EJ and the Beverly Hills cast will return to E! on May 1 for season four, but the reality star has proven to be such a hit he was recently given his own six-part spinoff, EJ And The City.
As first reported by Deadline, the show will premiere on E! on June 19 after the season four finale of Rich Kids.
It will also feature the jet set lives of EJ’s sister Elisa Johnson, LL Cool J’s daughter Samaria Smith, and Persian real estate development heir Sanaz Panahi
‘We are excited to spin off another one of our hit franchises as we continue to expand on E!’s ongoing success as a reality powerhouse and fuel our ratings momentum,’ said Jeff Olde, E!’s EVP Programming and Development in a statement.
‘EJ continues to be a standout character… with his over-the-top personality and incomparable style, and now viewers will get a chance to follow him on a whole new journey as he embraces his newfound self-confidence and works to build a brand that lives up to his family name.’
