Rihanna’s father survives COVID-19 battle

Ronald Fenty had tested positive for COVID-19 and Rihanna had shipped a ventilator to his home in the Carribean

Pop star Rihanna’s father Ronald Fenty had tested positive for COVID-19, but he has survived the illness and thanked his superstar daughter to the support.

Fenty tested positive for coronavirus at home in Barbados. According to a report by The Sun, he feared he would die after testing positive for the novel coronavirus and suffering high fevers.

He said his daughter, whose real name is Robyn Fenty, sent a ventilator to his home, and checked on him every day. “My daughter Robyn was checking in on me every day. I thought I was going to die to be honest. I have to say, I love you so much, Robyn. She did so much for me,” the 66-year-old said.

He revealed that his superstar daughter, 32, sent in a ventilator “that he hadn’t used yet”, and shipped it to his home in the Caribbean. He said that she gave him “more than” he needed to make it through the illness.

Recalling his time with the illness, he said: “I got a fever up inside of my nose. I had a fever across my lips. It was just a lot of fever. I feared the worst.”

Ronald Fenty had a message for everyone: “I want everybody to stay home. This is a serious situation. More serious than people realise. Please stay home,” he said.
