*Retired NBA star Magic Johnson surprised his wife Cookie with an accompaniment of family and friends who showed up for their 25 anniversary celebration in Monaco last weekend.

It was a black tie affair held at the Yacht Club de Monaco. But before they arrived in Monaco, the couple were photographed enjoying Venice, Italy tourist attractions including a romantic gondola ride.

Theirs is a story of black love that endured through Magic’s public ups and downs. Cookie has remained with her husband through it all. Including his world famous HIV diagnosis in 1991.

The couple, married since 1991, celebrated their union with over 100 people; including celebrity friends and family members.  All of whom traveled to help the couple honor one quarter century’s worth of years together as man and wife.
