Magic Johnson’s daughter, Elisa, put her bravery on display by showing off her scars from a December home invasion.
Along with a photo of herself in a sports bra and pants, which showed the long marks crisscrossing her abdominal area, the 24-year-old shared that she had been “afraid” to show her body since she “escaped” during the dangerous incident in L.A.’s San Fernando Valley. The “intense” scarring left her “incredibly insecure about the way I look,” she admitted, adding, “as women we tend to be very hard on ourselves.”
However, she said she has come to realize that “these scars are a part of my journey, and tell the story of who I am.” She concluded her self-healing message by writing, “I love my body, and I am proud to be in the place I am today."
Johnson, who has appeared in her brother EJ Johnson’s reality show EJNYC, didn’t elaborate on the terrifying ordeal. When it was reported in early December by TMZ, it was noted that she was “okay and no one else in the house suffered any physical injuries.”
According to the report, Johnson and nine friends had rented a house through Airbnb when the home invasion took place. Two armed gunmen came inside and “terrorized” Johnson and her friends, holding some at gunpoint. Johnson reportedly fled through a sliding glass door at the back of the home, ran down the street to escape and knocked on a neighbor’s door for help.
