The 83-year-old actor, who also starred in the TV mini-series 'Roots', declares in a new video that his daughter is 'the one that I would attribute my elderly abuse to.'

AceShowbiz - John Amos has spoken against his daughter once again. Shannon Amos recently lodged a complaint with the Colorado Bureau of Investigation that her dad was allegedly being abused, but the "Good Times" star believed that she's the one who did that to him.

Making use of Instagram, John's son, K.C. Amos, shared a video of him in a hospital. In the clip, he said, "She would be the primary suspect - if you would... I don't know if that's the right term to use or not. But she's the one that I would attribute my elderly abuse to. It's definitely a case of elderly abuse."

In a statement to PEOPLE, John elaborated, "To all of my fans, I want to share this video with you to show you that I am not in the distressed condition as described in the GoFundMe page." He added, "As a matter of fact, I am doing well."

Just days earlier, John made it clear that he's "doing well." He told the outlet, "To all of my fans, I want you to know that I am doing well. I am not in ICU, nor was I ever fighting for my life. First, I want the GoFundMe campaign about me to stop immediately and the funds subsequently returned to those who made donations. My son and I will reveal more information at the appropriate time."

Shannon, however, took to social media last week to reveal that she'd received a distressing call from her dad. She wrote on Instagram at the time, "On May 14th, I would receive a distressing call, from my dad, sharing that he was hospitalized in Memphis, Tennessee, in immense pain. Despite being out of the country, I arranged for help to reach him. ICU revealed his life hanging by a thread (sic)."

Shannon claimed that her dad - who also starred in the TV mini-series "Roots" - was the victim of "elder abuse and financial exploitation." She wrote, "The past two weeks shattered our world. My dad, a victim of elder abuse and financial exploitation."

"We are collaborating with the Colorado Bureau of Investigations and local authorities, determined to bring the perpetrators to justice. Legal assistance is crucial to ensure their prosecution and protect my father's future," she added. "His home, stripped bare, necessitates a safe space for his return."
