A source close to Rihanna has denied that the superstar's father Ronald Fenty contracted COVID-19. During a recent interview with The Sun, Fenty claimed that RiRi sent him a ventilator after he tested positive for coronavirus. He told the publication that he spent 14 days in an isolation center in Barbados, saying, “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.”

However, a source close to Rihanna disputed the story, telling Page Six, “He doesn’t need a ventilator, and she didn’t send him one.”

The source added that Rihanna was not aware of her dad's diagnosis and is not happy with the story.
