TheRich Kids of Beverly Hillsstar appeared on The Wendy Williams Show and Good Day New York yesterday looking noticeably smaller than usual. After undergoing gastric sleeve surgery last year, EJ has had dramatic weight loss, which he proudly proclaimed to Wendy as being “far over 100, I mean like literally half my size.”
In addition to giving him the slimmed down look he’s always wanted, Magic Johnson‘s son is also thankful for the new lifestyle the surgery is helping him live.
“It was a tool,” he explained. “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,” he continued. “It’s something that I struggled with and I needed that push in the right direction. And now my mindset is completely changed.”
