John Amos denies daughter’s claim that he is a victim of elder abuse, confirms hospitalization
However, Amos himself said TMZ that no one abused him and that he is not currently fighting for his life. The TV star is said to have no idea why her daughter created GoFundMe.
Representative of Amos Belinda Foster told the outlet that he was hospitalized due to fluid filling in his lower body and into his abdomen. The fear of health caused problems with his heart, TMZ reported, but he is said to be in no danger to his life.
In fact, the doctors drained the fluid and Foster says Amos is almost 100% healthy again.
