After Rihanna’s father Ronald Fenty tested positive for coronavirus in his home country of Barbados, she was there to help in every way. Now, thanks to the superstar, Fenty has beat the SARS COV-2 infection.
Speaking to the Sun, Fenty, 66, said, “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. I appreciate everything she has done.”
According to him, the Fenty Beauty founder sent a ventilator to his Caribbean home, giving him “more than enough” to battle the illness. Fenty further added, “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.”
Having quarantined at the Paragon Isolation Center for two weeks Ronald Fenty was declared virus-free, discharged and is now resting in his St. James home.
He also asked the public to stay home and take the coronavirus pandemic seriously, “I want everybody to stay home. This is a serious situation. More serious than people realize. Please stay home.”
