Not So Good Times: John Amos and Daughter Shannon Go Back and Forth On Claims Of Elder Abuse

“Good Times” actor John Amos is denying claims his daughter made saying he suffers from “elder abuse and financial exploitation.”

In a statement made on his behalf by his representative Belinda Foster, Amos, 83, is doing just fine, Parade reports.

“I wish to make a statement for the record that I am doing well. I appreciate everyone’s concerns but again, please understand that this GoFundMe campaign is not one that is accurate or authorized by me,” Amos said. “Thank you, John Amos.”

A GoFundMe page was created by Amos’ daughter, Shannon Amos, on June 7, seeking assistance claiming her famous father was in ICU fighting for his life. The goals is $500,000 and to date has raised over $9,000.

“In November of last year, my dad and I created a video together—a cherished moment forever etched in my heart. Little did I know that our lives would soon take a devastating turn,” Amos said. “On May 14th of this year, I received a distressing call from my dad, who was hospitalized far away in Memphis, Tennessee.”

After the Coming To America actor refuted the claims, his daughter jumped on Instagram live to defend  actions.

“All due respect to my father’s response, I understand that this is embarrassing and upsetting, and probably not what he would have wanted me to do, but it is in his best interest,” Shannon said, in the video, posted by the Neighborhood Atl.

The caregivers she is accusing have not yet been named, as Amos says she doesn’t want to be listed in any defamation of character lawsuits. However, according to TMZ, she claims the family is working with Colorado Bureau of Investigations to get “justice.”
