Other Relationship Information about Magic Johnson and Cookie Johnson:
After a physical before the 1991,1992 NBA season, Johnson discovered that he had tested positive for HIV. In a press conference held on November 7, 1991, Johnson made a public announcement that he would retire immediately. He stated that his wife Cookie and their unborn child did not have HIV, and that he would dedicate his life to "battle this deadly disease". Johnson initially said that he did not know how he contracted the disease, but later admitted that it was through having multiple sexual partners during his playing career. At the time, only a small percentage of HIV positive people had contracted it from heterosexual sex, and it was initially rumored that Johnson was gay or bisexual, although he denied both.
