Cops launch probe into ‘abuse’ of Coming to America and Good Times star John Amos after his daughter claimed her brother failed to provide care for aging actor

Police have launched an investigation into the ‘abuse’ of Good Times star John Amos after his daughter claimed her brother failed to provide care to the aging actor.

The 84-year-old actor’s daughter, Shannon, said her brother, KC, had failed to provide their father with proper care and called adult protective services in July.

Amos subsequently denied his daughter’s bizarre claims, saying they were based on a lie and that he had never been abused.

According to TMZthe Adult Protective Services filed a report based on his daughter’s claims before turning the case over to the LAPD, who then initiated the investigation.

Shannon and KC have had a conflicted relationship for years and police said they were aware of the siblings’ claims against each other, TMZ reported.

In July, KC was taken into custody after his sister said he sent her threatening text messages that included a video of him firing a gun in an open field, along with the message “I’m going to sleep much better tonight, big sister.”

According to the report, Shannon also said KC told her he had connections to organized crime groups and that she felt “her life was in danger.”

She then sent her brother a cease and desist order, which was issued in response to his various online statements about her — claiming that he “no longer has the authority to make medical decisions for their father John.”

According to Robert Florida, the spokesman for the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office in New Jersey, Shannon stated that KC had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder in the past.

She also said her brother believed she had hired a hitman to kill him and fears her sibling will act on his suspicions, according to documents obtained by TMZ.

In addition to her claims that her father suffered from “elder abuse” and was “fighting for his life,” Shannon is also said to have launched a GoFundMe fundraiser for him.

The page’s target donation amount was set at $500,000 and claimed that the actor, nicknamed “America’s Dad,” fell victim to a “caretaker” who stole from him and robbed his home of “everything valuable.”

But Amos quickly dismissed the accusations, saying he has no idea why his daughter launched the fundraiser, according to TMZ.

Shannon said her father’s alleged ordeal began in June, when she received a disturbing call from her father telling her he was in a hospital in Memphis.

Although the fundraiser claims he was “fighting for his life in the intensive care unit,” Amos’ rep told media that the actor “recently started feeling 100 percent.”

The actor was hospitalized because his lower body filled with fluid up to his stomach, causing problems with his heart. The representative reportedly said that doctors had successfully drained it and that he was on the mend.

TMZ reported that the Coming to America actor was recently in the hospital for a “routine checkup,” with the actor reporting that he was doing well.

The fundraiser, which was reportedly intended to help him with legal fees and the cost of his medical care, claimed he was only able to call his daughter briefly from his hospital bed before “his pain became too unbearable.”

Shannon did not provide any details about the abuse in her appeal, other than noting that her father’s home was “violated and stripped of everything of value.”

She added that the family was working with the Colorado Bureau of Investigations and local police to “seek justice.”

“The cruelty inflicted on my father makes me wonder what kind of person could commit such acts,” Shannon added. “Yet we cling to the hope that justice will prevail.”

“We are deeply saddened by John’s victimization of elder abuse, neglect and fiduciary abuse, allegedly perpetrated by a trusted caregiver.”

“This betrayal has devastated us and we are committed to continuing a thorough investigation.”

Amos became a household name in the 1970s with his starring role as patriarch James in Good Times.

He went on to appear in more than 200 TV shows and films, including The West Wing, Coming to America and Me Time.
