Rihanna’s Dad Says Pop Star Sent Him Ventilator After COVID-19 Diagnosis
Rihanna reportedly sent her father a ventilator after he was diagnosed with the coronavirus (COVID-19).
The 32-year-old's dad, Ronald Fenty, revealed that his daughter has been checking in on him daily and even sent a ventilator to his home in the Caribbean.
"I thought I was going to die, to be honest," the 66-year-old told The Sun.
He added, "I have to say, I love you so much, Robyn [Rihanna's birth name]. She did so much for me. I appreciate everything she has done."
After spiking a fever a few weeks ago, Fenty entered the Paragon Isolation Center. After a 14-day stay, he was declared virus-free, the outlet reported.
Last month, Rihanna's Clara Lionel Foundation donated $5 million to coronavirus relief to aid Direct Relief, Partners In Health, Feeding America, the International Rescue Committee and World Health Organization’s (WHO) COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.
The superstar also reportedly offered to donate $700,000 US (1.4 million Barbados dollars) for ventilators for her home country of Barbados.
