* 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.

Outside of TBD, Adrienne leaves a message for Sonny. Justin stops her hoping to chat. She's cold and asks if he's running back to Elsa. He ignores that dig and they bicker. He asks what's going on with Will and Sonny but she refuses to discuss them until they examine their own issues. He says they can do that after his deal is done. About the situation with Elsa, he says he didn't mean for it to happen. It was a mistake and he's sorry but it doesn't change the fact that he has a professional obligation to attend to. Adrienne cries and slaps him across the face. He can't dump Elsa because he can't risk the deal falling apart. Adrienne calls him a whore. He doesn't want to leave things this way but she asks how else they're supposed to leave it. "Be honest. You left me a long time ago," she cries. He tells her he'll be in touch and she twists at her rings when he leaves.
At the hotel, Adrienne asks Will how he could do this to her son. She thinks it's why Sonny went away. She yells at Paul. Will realizes she knows him. Adrienne takes off. Will tells Paul to leave town and follows. Outside, Adrienne wants to know why he cheated on her son. Will says Sonny already lectured him. Adrienne calls him a child. She realizes that Will was with Paul when Sonny found out, was attacked, and was fighting for his life. She slaps him, and then apologizes. They discuss Sonny. Will says Sonny said the same things to Paul as he did to him. He's trying to figure out if Sonny loved him or just the idea of getting married. Adrienne accuses him of looking for a way out. Will doesn't know how he'll live with what he did. Adrienne snarks he won't have a problem, his mother never did.
At home, Justin tells Adrienne they need to talk. She thinks Lucas told him they kissed and wants to know about him and Elsa. He sighs. She walks out.
