Johnson took to social media to speak about a shocking situation involving her ex-boyfriend Brian Wayne Foster, who is an entertainment writer. Detailing many disturbing facts, the actor confessed that she feared for her life after recent incidents that happened to her and her family.
Ashley Johnson Was Tormented By Her Ex-Boyfriend
In a terrifying confession, The Last of Us star Ashley Johnson who played Bella Ramsey’s character Ellie’s mother in the show, spoke about the current difficult predicament that she faced. According to sources, Johnson’s ex-boyfriend Brian Wayne Foster allegedly committed countless acts of terror that put Johnson and her family in danger. This included changing the passwords to her home cameras after a huge argument, carrying a bag with a strangling device in the weeks leading to the breakup, and making Johnson a prisoner in her own home by denying her access to the internet and all her other devices. Speaking of Foster’s disturbed mind in a statement, Johnson said,
“May 15, 2023, the police issued an (Emergency Protective Order) due to (Brian) having attempted to extort $150,000 from me (television/film actress), his history of verbal abuse, his very unhinged mind from his addictive use of narcotics and several other reasons.”
Ashley Johnson further stated that Foster’s deranged behavior had prompted her to break up with him for over two and a half years without success. The actor hoped that the restraining order against her ex-boyfriend will ultimately protect her and her family from harm.

That’s crazy but honestly the judge getting him to stay 500 yards away from her home, and 100 yards away from the dogs. That doesn’t make sense the dogs live with her. Hope she and her dogs stay safe. x

People being like "save her dogs" or "why do her dogs get less distance"….there is an actual human woman being threatened, blackmailed, and harassed, you should be outraged about the weak restraining orders for her.
