While Johnson has been busy with her professional life and is seen back on L&HH: Miami, she seems to be living life as a very independent woman.

In fact, there is no trace of any recent romantic relationships on her social media accounts, so either she living up the single life or she’s keeping us all in the dark!

A while back, she fell into a depression and put on a lot of weight. Johnson explains, “Well, I went through a depression stage after Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, and I just started eating everything.”

She went on to explain, “I couldn’t fit in any of my clothes. And, on a specific blog, it came out that I was pregnant, but I was never pregnant…I was just a little thicker, and I wasn’t happy with myself.”

She then took help from a coach who got Johnson to identify the things that made her depressed and how to overcome them. Now, she looks better than ever—and feels even better about herself!

It all worked out for Johnson; she lost more than 40 pounds in weight and is now happily showing off her gorgeous curves!
