For Rihanna, the coronavirus outbreak has hit close to home -- literally.
We’re not just talking about her home country of Barbados, which has a handful of confirmed COVID-19 cases. RiRi’s own father, Ronald Fenty, recently contracted the disease and feared he was on his death bed. Just like she did for the people of Barbados, she made sure to send through a ventilator to her dad’s house.
Ronald told the The Sun, “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." He also stated that Rihanna went above and beyond to make sure he recovered. "She did so much for me. I appreciate everything she has done."
RiRi’s pops also spoke on what it was like to battle with the disease. “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. I thought I was going to die, honestly…I want everybody to stay home. This is a serious situation… More serious than people realize. Please stay home." Ronald eventually spent 14 days under strict supervision at the Paragon Isolation Center.
