Rihanna father, who recently tested positive for COVID 19, revealed that the pop star sent him a ventilator.
Speaking with The Sun at his home in Barbados, the 66-year-old opened up about his battle with the deadly virus and how Rihanna gave him “more than” he needed to make it through the illness.
“My daughter Robyn was checking in on me every day,” said a grateful Ronald. “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.”
He said that Rihanna was even able to obtain a pricey ventilator “that he hadn’t used yet,” and ship it to him in the Caribbean. The singer also reportedly donated over $700,000 worth of ventilators to her home country.
Discussing his symptoms, 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,” he recalled. It resulted in him being quarantined at an isolation center where he says he was able to make a full recovery just after 14 days.
After spending 14 days in an isolation center, Ronald was declared virus-free and is now back in the St. James home that Rihanna bought for him.
