What happens to John Amos and his daughter?

According to a recent report by TMZ, Amos’ daughter, Shannon Amos, recently started a GoFundMe page for her father. In the description for GoFundMeShannon mentioned that earlier in the year she received a call from John saying he was in intensive care at the hospital. Shannon further noted that she then found out that Amos was what she claims was a “victim of elder abuse and financial exploitation.”

No details were given as to what type of abuse was committed against Amos and who committed it. Instead, Shannon mentioned that a “carer” was at fault and that she’s been in touch with the Colorado Bureau of Investigations and the local sheriff’s department on the matter. GoFundMe was created to help Shannon prosecute those involved.

However, John Amos claims none of this is true.

In a statement to TMZ, Amos called his daughter’s claim an outright lie. Not only is he not being abused, Amos said, but he is also not “fighting for his life” in the hospital. Amos also said he has no idea why his daughter started GoFundMe.

A representative for Amos, Belinda Foster, explained that Amos’ hospitalization was due to his lower body filling up and causing heart problems. Foster claimed doctors drained the fluid and Amos is starting to feel better.

Amos is best known for his role as the adult Kunta Kinte in the legendary mini-series Roots, but has also starred in numerous other shows and films. These include Good Times, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The West Wing, Die Hard 2, and Coming to America.
