Entertainment Tonight host Mark Steines caught up with singer Rihanna on the set of her upcoming movie, Battleship

Battleship marks Rihanna's first feature film debut. No word on the release date of the movie. 

Check out the video plus information regarding Rihanna's dad's health after the break!

According to Eurweb, Rihanna’s father Ronald Fenty was recently diagnosed with dengue fever.
Ronald Fenty was hospitalized with tropical disease dengue fever, just days after visiting his famous daughter, real name Robyn Fenty, at her home in Barbados.Fenty, 57, is now recuperating from the illness, but thought at one point he wouldn’t survive. 
“It was horrible. I thought I was going to die,” he told The Sun newspaper. “I was actually in a hospital ward that Robyn’s friend worked in as a doctor. She offered me her BlackBerry to call Robyn. I called her and she was worried – she said, ‘Daddy, what’s wrong with you?’ 
“Luckily I pulled through after a scary few days.”Rihanna, 23, and her father were once estranged because of his previous addiction to crack, but the pair have now reconciled – and Rihanna’s half-sister Kandy explained her father is “very proud” of the singer. 
“He’s a good guy. He’s made mistakes like everybody does but you learn from them,” said Kandy. “He loves all his children but he’s very proud of Rihanna.” “Luckily I pulled through after a scary few days.”
According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), dengue fever is caused by one of four different but related viruses. It is spread by the bite of mosquitoes, most commonly the mosquito Aedes aegypti, which is found in tropic and subtropic regions. 

There is no specific treatment for dengue fever. 

The NIH recommends taking plenty of  fluids if there are signs of dehydration, Acetaminophen (Tylenol) in cases of high fever and also suggest that individuals diagnosed 
with dengue avoid taking aspirin.

Awe, get well Mr. Fenty!
