During these days we are able to see how The Last of Us is making news because the absence of any mention of the saga in the PlayStation Showcase has been accompanied by the announcement that the multiplayer title is being reassessed. However, and to be clear, this remains in the second or third level when it really matters, since it has recently been reported that Ashely Johnson, the actress who gives life to Ellie in the video game has allegedly been the victim of a case of domestic violence.
According to what has been reported, Johnson would have filed a lawsuit to request a restraining order against her already ex-boyfriend, with whom she had been dating since 2012, because he would have carried out all kinds of vexatious acts against the actress, which what includes abuse, threats and extortion attempts both her and her family once the two separated last March. All this after having been cutting the relationship for two years.
Ashley Johnson would have been the victim of all kinds of humiliating treatment, both physical and verbal
The information that is reaching us also reports that Brian W. Foster, Johnson’s ex-boyfriend, would also have had a long history of verbal abuse that it would have gone further with a behavior that they classify as deranged and that has been increased due to the consumption of narcotics. In fact, Johnson reports that he had to flee his house on May 15, the date he filed for the restraining order, alleging that Foster had the ability to end his life or injure him both her and her family, even not having access to the Internet and devices to contact others, which made her fear for her life.
It should be noted that it is not known how this matter will end, but everything indicates that the restraining order will be applied against Foster both Ashley Johnson and the rest of her family in order to prevent her ex-partner from doing them any harm. Likewise, it is expected that this will end in court and, if the facts are proven as such, it could even lead to prison, but that is something we will see in the future.
Having said all this, it should be noted that the last time we saw the actress was playing Anna, Ellie’s mother in The Last of Us series for HBO Max, also being an interpreter who has earned the love of the fans and that he has received great support after knowing this news. Now we can only wait for everything to end well.
