On Thursday, Elisa Johnson, the daughter of NBA legend Magic Johnson, opened up about how she was severely impacted by escaping a home invasion last December.

"As women, we tend to be very hard on ourselves. Months ago, I escaped from a home invasion and in the process I was left with intense scaring on my stomach," Elisa, 24, revealed under an Instagram selfie of herself wearing black jeans and a black sports bra.


The moment was the first time the 24-year-old showed the scars that crisscross her abdominal area.

"Until now I’ve been so afraid to show these scars, and incredibly insecure about the way I look," she continued. "But I now realize these scars are a part of my journey, and tell the story of who I am. I love my body, and I am proud to be in the place I am today. "

Elisa did not elaborate during her brave display on the details of the robbery.

In December 2018, TMZ reported that two armed men "terrorized" Magic's daughter and her nine friends, who rented a home in San Fernando Valley, California. Elisa escaped through a glass sliding door in the back of the home and ran to a neighbor for help.

People commented on the photo and shared stories of their own scars that have made them feel insecure, including designer Danielle Guizio. Other celebrities such as Vic Mensa, Ming Lee Simmons and Brittany Hampton showed love and support to Elisa.
