* Killed father Duke Johnson after he raped her.
Past: Proprietor of Cheatin' Heart.
Past: Co-Owner of A.J. Construction
Adrienne Johnson ran away from home after she was abused by her father, Duke Johnson. She moved in with Kayla Johnson, who was her brother Steve's girlfriend. Father Duke followed Adrienne to Salem and abused her and raped her before she shot him dead. She blocked the memory and Steve took the murder rap. Steve was almost sentenced when Adrienne remembered the shooting and the judge let Steve go and exonerated Adrienne because the killing was in self-defense.
Adrienne met Justin Kiriakis, and the two married in 1987, in Greece! The marriage wasn't an easy one. The two fought over Justin's ties with the Kiriakis business. She miscarried a child and a strained relationship became worse. When Victor (Justin's uncle) was shot, he moved in to take care of Victor and run the Kiriakis Company. Adrienne didn't return and had an affair with stable boy, Emilio Ramirez. Justin set a trap for Emilio to be killed but Justin became paralyzed after being caught in his own trap! Adrienne returned to Justin's arms but the tensions were high when Justin became impotent. The two divorced after Adrienne faked a pregnancy in order to keep Justin. At the same time, they found that Victor was drugging Justin to make him impotent.
Justin and Victor fought over Angelica, who planned to marry Victor but had Justin's baby.
Justin and Adrienne continued to work at competing companies, and eventually dated once more, and remarried June 1, 1990. Angela became upset with this and tried to kill Adrienne. When it didn't work, she fled Salem. Presumed dead, she is still out there with her son, Alexander.
Justin and Adrienne were having problems conceiving, so they adopted Justin and Adrienne, who were born September 19, 1990. Shortly after the twins were born, Adrienne became pregnant with Jackson. They made up with Victor and moved to Texas where they started A.J. Construction Company.
In 2003 Adrienne called Jennifer to give her condolences when Jack 'died'.
Adrienne came back to Salem in May 2007 to help her brother Steve get out of the mental hospital. She stuck around and often helps Steve with Stephanie. She also owns the Cheatin' Heart.
Not seen often on this return, she, Justin and the kids took off to Dubai when Justin received a great job promotion there. She left January 31st with a tearful goodbye to brother Steve. She returned March 23 2010 when Hope contacted her and asked that she return, secretly hoping to get Adrienne and Justin back together as they'd been separated. It didn't work, and Adrienne sold Cheatin' Heart. She remains in town for now, providing a shoulder to lean on when Stephanie Johnson needs one and she and Justin have been reflecting on their past and heading toward a future together. They recently got close and had sex at Cheatin' Heart during "Happy Hour" and are reconciling.
Adrienne and Justin became engaged to marry for the third time, March 2011 and married April of 2011 offscreen. Jackson (Sonny) returned in July of 2011. Since, she has not been seen much, though she and Justin's relationship has been very good.

Justin searches for Adrienne in the square as she and Lucas kiss in the park. They part when Justin calls out her name and he sees nothing. He asks why she left the club. It's tense so Lucas goes and Adrienne lets Justin know she saw Elsa's texts. Justin explains the texts were a joke because they've been working so closely that they're calling each other work spouses. He goes along with it because she's the points person. She seems appeased so they go see Sonny.
In her office, Marlena finds it difficult to hide her shock when Paul tells her about his affair with Will Horton. She yells, "Stop!" He freaks out, thinking she's disgusted but she explains she has a conflict of interest. He thinks it's a load of bull so she admits Will's her grandson. She gives him the name of another psychiatrist and sends him away. In his room, Sonny accuses Will of cheating with Paul and Will denies it. Sonny yells that Paul admitted it! Will is more surprised Paul was there but Sonny says that's not the point. Will finally confesses, "It didn't mean anything." It was only one time. Sonny doesn't believe him. Will tries to explain but makes things worse by sounding as though he's blaming Sonny. He talks about how important the article was to him that he'd have done anything. Sonny yells, "You whored yourself out for a stupid magazine article." Will clarifies what happened and apologizes. He wants to pretend it never happened and points out that Sonny was with other guys. Sonny says that was before they were together! He tries to take off his ring and starts freaking out and hyperventilating, assuming Will 'knew'. Will calls for a nurse and a doctor and Marlena rush in. Sonny's given a sedative and Will discloses to Marlena that he hurt Sonny. She gives him a pep talk. Later, Adrienne and Justin arrive and talk about the blood donor saving their son's life. Justin wants the chance to thank him someday.
At the Kiriakis mansion, Justin asks Adrienne if she's going to continue with the silent treatment. She reminds him of how little they talk. He knows it's been hard on her. He's sure her friend Lucas heard all about it. She tells him Lucas is a good friend and wants to know who he's been with the last seven months. He doesn't want to go there. He asks for a temporary truce. Adrienne knows she's laying the guilt on thick so she agrees to relax and go to The Edge with him.
Adrienne and Justin show up at TBD. Rafe's glad to hear Sonny's doing well. Justin comments that he can't believe Victor's there. Kate and Clyde drop in and Rafe's accommodating. Victor and Clyde nod at each other, causing Kate to become suspicious. Clyde says they've called a truce. Nearby, Justin toasts to his and Adrienne's reunion and their son's health. Adrienne enjoys their time together. Justin goes to congratulate Victor on the club and updates him on Sonny's condition. Vic hopes he's not in a hurry to return to Dubai. Meanwhile, Justin receives texts from Elsa telling him how much she misses him and thinks of him constantly. Adrienne peeks at the texts and feeling betrayed, runs out. Kate watches. Clyde finds Justin and asks him to take over his corporate interests since Aiden Jennings is out of town. Justin says he'll be leaving Salem soon and thinks Aiden's worth waiting for. He looks at his table and Kate tells him Adrienne left. He grabs his cell and races out. Nearby, Rafe thinks Victor must have something up his sleeve. He'd hate to be in 'that hillbilly's' shoes when Victor strikes.
Adrienne runs crying through the square and Lucas spots her and follows her to the park. He offers to lend an ear and she bawls in his arms and then apologizes. He promises it'll be okay and kisses her. She responds.
