Who is Elisa Johnson?
American celebrity family member and social media star Elisa Johnson was born in the USA on 21 December 1994, making Sagittarius her zodiac sign. She’s perhaps only known for being the adoptive daughter of famous American businessman and former professional basketball player Earvin ‘Magic’ Johnson Jr, who’s widely rated to be one of the best point guards of all time; Magic spent 13 years playing in the National Basketball Association (NBA), winning five NBA Championships with the Los Angeles Lakers. He could’ve continued his career, but retired abruptly after contracting HIV.
Education and early life
Elisa was raised alongside her adoptive brother Earvin III in Los Angeles, by their father Magic and mother Earlitha ‘Cookie’ Kelly; Earvin’s gay and is today starring in the reality show “Rich Kids of Beverly Hills”. Magic and Earlitha married in a small ceremony in 1991, and have been together ever since; Elisa has a half-brother Andre Johnson (born in 1981) from her father’s relationship with Melissa Mitchell.
Elisa studied at a local high school in Los Angeles and was into multiple activities during her time there, as she enjoyed dancing, singing and playing the piano; she was also passionate about acting, and appeared in a couple of school plays.
Elisa matriculated in 2013, and although she’s yet to speak about her further education, it’s widely believed that she studied at a university, and that she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in 2017.
No details have been disclosed about Elisa’s career, but most people believe that she’s today working to financially support herself, and isn’t living off of her father’s wealth.
Some believe that Elisa’s become a talent manager and is in charge of finding actors and singers to sign to her agency, while others claim that she’s ventured into real estate.
It’s also believed that she’s attended a number of auditions for roles in both movies and TV series, but this hasn’t been confirmed.
