So, who is Charlotte Lawrence, and what do we know about her positive COVID-19 diagnosis? Let's look at what we know about this social media superstar who has now become a viral trending topic. 

1. Who is Charlotte Lawrence? Like her BFF, she too comes from a famous family. 

Just as her BFF Kaia Gerber is the spawn of legendary supermodel Cindy Crawford and businessman Rande Gerber, Lawrence herself comes from a famous Hollywood family. She is the great-niece of legendary actress Susan Saint James, and the descendant of real estate mogul William Van Duzer Lawrence (best known as the founder of Sarah Lawrence College). Her father, Bill Lawrence, created the show Scrubs, and her mother, Christa Miller, was an actress on the show. 

2. She is a sometime model. 

Before she became known as a singer-songwriter, Lawrence was known as a model who was signed to the infamous IMG Models agency. Her best-known campaign was for the luxury retailer Fendi but some of her spreads also were featured in Teen Vogue and Harper's Bazaar, as well.

3. Lawrence is also a successful singer-songwriter who is best known for the song "Just You."

After burning up Spotify's Viral 50 charts with a cover of "You're The One That I Want" (yes, from the film Grease), Lawrence became even more popular when she dropped her single, "Just You." In 2018, she released her debut album, Young, and appeared on the Birds of Prey soundtrack as well. 

4. She revealed she tested positive for coronavirus on March 18, 2020. 

On March 18, 2020, Lawrence took to her Instagram page to reveal that she had tested positive for COVID-19, better known as coronavirus. She also reposted the message on her Twitter page. It's unclear how she contracted the disease. You can check out her full statement below. 

5. Lawrence said that she's "going to be fine," but worries about those in her family who may not be if they contracted the disease. 

"I am going to be completely fine," she said in her statement. "But many who get it won't be if people get sick too quickly." She went on to encourage her followers to think about their parents and grandparents before going out and partying and said that she had "so many people" that she loved who would have a tough time getting through it if they contracted the disease. 

6. She urged her fans to "stay indoors."

In her extensive statement, Lawrence encouraged her fans to "stay inside" whether or not they felt sick. She also said that she hoped her followers would think about their loved ones getting sick because "someone" didn't listen to the strict orders to say inside, and concluded that if her fans didn't self-quarantine, they would be on her "s--t list." She concluded her statement by including a link to the CDC's website
