* Killed father Duke Johnson after he raped her.
Current: 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.

Marlena begins the wedding ceremony for Will and Sonny at the Kiriakis mansion. She asks Caroline to say her speech but Caroline stays seated, confused. Everyone looks nervous. Will goes to her and she remembers his name and goes to the podium. She talks about her first customers at the pub and the guests look puzzled. She says he was ignored by his family and she couldn't figure out why until she realized he was gay. Everyone starts to weep as she says it gave her pause. She's so proud that her grandson and Sonny will never have that problem with their family. She gives them kisses and takes a seat. Everyone claps. Justin recalls Sonny having no fear. When he was fifteen, he came out and once again showed his fearlessness. Justin's in awe of his son who can handle anything. Lucas gets up and jokes that Will's coming out was identical. Everybody laughs and Lucas says Will was a better son than he and Sami deserved. Lucas is sorry for his original reaction to Will coming out. It wasn't the life he envisioned when Will was born...It's better. Sami cries. Lucas is proud and holds Will close. WilSon's sexy guitar music plays while Sonny tells the family to take a look at some old photos of all of those who have supported them. They thank their guests and say their vows. Sonny calls their life together the greatest adventure of his life. Will admits he never thought about his future and didn't know he'd find love like this. Will says he respects, admires, adores and loves Sonny. Sonny cries. They exchange rings and say their vows. Marlena pronounces them husbands for life. The men kiss and balloons fall from the ceiling. Everyone mingles and Will tells Sami she and Lucas taught him that family is the most important thing. Sami's proud. Victor asks Caroline for a copy of that speech. Nearby, Ciara tells Theresa her bag "is to die for." Theresa says it's a gift and promises to teach her how to wrap boys around her finger in middle school. Abby, Gabi, and Jordan hang out outside and Abby looks uncomfortable when EJ and Sami stroll out, kissing. They head back inside and JJ strums guitar during the first dance. EJ later tells the guys Sami has reserved a room at the Salem Inn for them. Sonny swears to Will they'll have a honeymoon, soon. They thank Marlena for officiating. Roman says Carrie couldn't come because the baby was too sick to fly with an ear infection. They're sad to miss the wedding. It's the best Roman he has ever been to. The men embrace. Theresa goes to Jenn. "I hear you've been talking smack about me." Jenn doesn't want to talk to her. Abby drags Jenn away and JJ asks Theresa to back off. A waiter accidentally spills the contents of his platter over Theresa's dress causing Jenn and Abby to laugh. Eric and Jenn leave to go find Nicole and Daniel while Brady follows Theresa into his bedroom where she cleans up. Roman catches them kissing and cautions Brady not to hurt Theresa. Downstairs, Sami and Adrienne both want to give the first toast. They say a speech together and start competing over who is going to be the most generous. EJ saves the day and ends the toast. Everyone laughs. Will drags Kate outside to ask if she's upset that they asked Marlena to officiate. Kate's fine with it and happy Marlena's been there for him. She cries. Will tells her Marlena's a lousy poker player. Kate taught him everything about poker. She also taught him how to stand up for himself and survive. They hug and later, the guys cut the cake and feed it to each other. When they're ready to go, the guests throw confetti at them.
Will arrives at the mansion and overhears Marlena and Sami arguing. Sami covers and shoves him outside. Marlena almost spills the beans but EJ rushes up and assures everyone they're set. Sami jumps into his arms happily. Meanwhile, Adrienne is proud Sonny's wearing the cufflinks Justin wore to their wedding. She tears up. Theresa arrives and greets Brady. Everyone heads inside and Sami tears up and tells Will he's the perfect son. He's touched. They embrace and Tad and JJ walk down the aisle. Music plays and Gabi and Abby wait by Marlena at the podium while Sami walks Will down the aisle. Sami shoots Lucas a look and they grin. Adrienne walks Sonny down the aisle and his eyes lock with Will's. Everyone gets misty-eyed.
