Daily Mail Online – Rihanna’s dad Ronald Fenty thought he ‘would die’ as he battled coronavirus.
The 66-year-old revealed he had tested positive for the deadly infection in a new interview.
‘My daughter Robyn was checking in on me every day,’ he told The Sun, referring to the pop star by her birth name.
‘I thought I was going to die to be honest.’
Ronald said Rihanna did everything she could to help him, from her home in the U.S.
He explained: ‘I have to say, “I love you so much, Robyn.”
‘She did so much for me. I appreciate everything she has done.’
The 32-year-old pop star even purchased a ventilator and sent it to Ronald in Barbados, but he said he had not needed to use it.
He said of his illness: ‘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.’
Ronald spent 14 days inside the Paragon Isolation Center on the island.
