From November 2020 to February 2021, the pair frequently doted on each other on social media and even set off engagement rumors after Future gifted the 23-year-old a diamond ring in December 2021.

However, the romance appeared to be short-lived as the pair unfollowed each other on social media in January 2021. Future also scrubbed his Instagram clean of all his images with Dess, but Dess has not followed suit.

Removing images of a significant other on social media is usually a tell-tale sign of trouble, but that’s not always the case. Dess and Future may simply be opting to keep their relationship private. Either way, Dess has continued to remain focused on her career and in building her brand.
