Aspiring rapper Dess Dior has tested positive for COVID-19, just days after performing at the Rolling Loud music festival in Miami, Florida on July 23.
The 22-year-old, real name Destiny Bailey, was among the hip-hop artists performing at Miami's Hard Rock Stadium as part of the three-day weekend.
The "Stop Playin'" rapper told her fans on Twitter on Sunday: "I'm sick af (as f--k) in soooooo much pain rn (right now)."
Dior, who had performed on Saturday, later added: "??I don't think I have Covid but ima get tested to be safe."
On Monday, Dior returned to Twitter to update her fans and to urge boyfriend, rapper Future, and other friends to get tested.
"Update: I tested positive for Covid. Everybody who's been in contact with me should go get tested asap," she added.
It's unclear whether Dior received mRNA vaccinations ahead of her Rolling Loud performance, or if she had been required to take a Covid test before taking to the stage.

Rapper Future Hendrix appears to shade his x-girlfriend, Lori Harvey, in a snippet from a new track.
On Wednesday, May 19, an audio clip leaked that hinted Future may not be over Lori.
In the snippet, featuring bite-size rapper 42 Dugg, Future raps: "Tell Steve Harvey I Don't Want Her."
Future and Lori met in 2018 shortly after she broke up with fiancé Memphis Depay.
Future and Lori dated until she caught him cheating with one of his baby mamas in 2020.
Future is currently dating rapper and IG model Dess Dior.
Lori's stepfather Steve Harvey is happily married to Lori's biological mother, Marjorie.

Steve was not a fan of Future or any of Lori's ex-boyfriends. He told Ellen DeGeneres he got rid of "all of them" because they were disrespectful.
Steve later said he approved of Lori's millionaire actor boyfriend Michael B. Jordan, who is respectful and doesn't overstay his welcome at Steve's house.
Future hasn't responded to the frenzy caused by the leaked snippet. However, he did retweet a comment: "Respect to all women (I BOUGHT THAT B*TCH A PATEK).
Joie Chavis took to social media to clear the air about assumptions her fans may have about her baby daddies, Future Hendrix and Bow Wow.
Since the Covid peaked in 2020, courts stopped aggressively pursuing fathers who are behind in their child support payments.
Times are hard for everyone, including rappers who can't tour or book club gigs due to the lockdowns.
In a Q&A session on her Youtube channel, Joie Chavis asked her followers to reveal their uninformed assumptions about her.
At the 2:11 mark of the video [click here], Joie revealed she doesn't receive child support from either of her children's fathers.
"Um, I don't get any child support (imitates a record scratching) - repeat that -- I don't get any child support."
Joie was a background dancer for Bow Wow when he fathered her daughter, Shai Moss, 9.
She also welcomed a son named Hendrix with Future in 2018.
"I don't really need to ask for certain things for my kids 'cause I can do everything myself," she said confidently.

Rapper Future Hendrix allegedly stood by and watched as a woman was thrown to the floor by his security.
The woman made the mistake of trying to get close to the 37-year-old father of six. The "All Bad" rapper watched as his security grabbed the woman and threw her down to the floor.
A viral video shows the rapper watching as the fan argued with Future's security guard and got in his face.
The burly guard grabbed the woman by the throat with one hand and threw her down on the floor repeatedly in the crowded nightclub. At one point he threw her down and pinned her to the floor by her neck.
The camera then panned over to Future who looked on calmly as if he were watching a sporting event.

An Instagram model claims promiscuous rapper Future Hendrix offered her $20,000 in cash to abort a fetus that would've been his 9th baby.
She accepted his offer.
The woman provided receipts in the form of text messages exchanged with the horny rapper and a video clip of the $20,000 cash -- still wrapped in bank bands.

One text reportedly sent by Future reads: "Last thing u need to worry about is money. U showing you can't be trusted. Friday no excuses."
The IG model reportedly accepted the cash even though she would've been set for the next 18 years if she delivered the baby. Times are hard right now for sex workers and Instagram escorts amid the Covid-19 lockdowns.
Question: Would you take $20,000 to abort Future's baby?
A few months ago, Future's ex, Brittni Mealy, was singing "Reunited and it feels so good," now she's crying the blues.
The 31-year-old Virgo took to Instagram to claim Future said "f*** him" to their son, Prince Wilburn, at his 8th birthday party over the weekend.
Britnni and Prince are pictured last year at his Mario-themed 7th birthday party in Atlanta.
In now deleted posts, she wrote, "I don't even do this but @Future you a real p*ssy you knew to hide and run when I came cause you don't want this smoke b*tch boy you ran from my kids p*ssy ass how!! Run like yo scary ass always do b*tch!"
Brittni then added, "Who tf tell a 8 year old f**k him and he will shoot up his mom n***a a real b*tch. Don't come back begging like yo ass always do simp cause you dead to me after tonight."
Next to Ciara Wilson, Brittni is perhaps Future's 2nd most popular baby mama. She commanded blog headlines for fiercely defending her ex and she is well-known in the ATL as founder of the Pop of Junk clothing boutique.
She is also known for filling the gap when the promiscuous rapper is between groupies or on the hunt for his future baby mama.
Brittni is an attentive mom who is often seen around Atlanta with just her son -- no man or hangers ons looking for a come-up.
Among her accolades, Brittni was featured on Upscale magazine's Mommy and Mogul issue in July 2015.
Nowadays Future is sharing his bed with rapper and Instagram model Dess Dior, 22. Brittni is betting they won't last long, and she will soon be reunited with her man.

Future Hendrix gifted his new girlfriend with a pair of diamond earrings after his ex-girlfriend Lori Harvey was spotted in Atlanta with Michael B. Jordan.
Future, who has 4-5 children with as many women, is dating Dess Dior this month. The rapper, who goes through women like a box of Kleenex, took to his Instagram stories to show off the new gems he bought Dior.
But enough about them. What's the story with industry trampoline Lori and People's Sexiest Man Alive, Michael?
First of all, no one believes they are a genuine couple. Even if a sex tape leaked, no one would believe it.
Lori has a colorful dating history that includes more than one high-profile down low celebrity. And Michael's dating history is a mystery.
Which leads some to believe that Lori is getting paid to be Michael's high-dollar beard.
It isn't difficult to believe Lori is pretending to date men who want their bedroom secrets to remain just that - a secret. But is she hustling backwards?
Lori is still young (23), so she has another decade or so before her looks start to fade and she loses her value as professional beard to some of entertainment's elite down low males.

A judge let rapper Future off the hook by ordering him to pay $3,200-a-month in child support to the mother of his one-year-old daughter, Reign.
It's a small victory for the "Mask Off" impresario whose ex, Eliza Reign Seraphin, initially demanded $53,000-a-month.
The disappointed mom-of-one is appealing the judge's verdict.
"We are very hopeful that once we get all the documentation from him, his banking info, his credit card info, that the final child support number would be substantially higher," Seraphin's lawyer, Brandon Rotbart, told IG blog The Shade Room.
He added that he and his team are disputing the rapper's claims he only earns $30,000 -a-month. "We had some other evidence that was contradictory," Rotbart said.
Seraphin, 29, previously rejected Future's proposed offer of $1,000-a-month in child support for their daughter. She began her career as an Instagram model in May 2016.
Future, 36, dated Seraphin on-and-off from 2016 through 2018. Their daughter is the rap star's sixth child by various women, including a son, Future Zahir, he shares with pop singer Ciara Wilson, 34.
