However, it was eventually discovered that Molla was the one who caused the damage to his property. According to the US Attorney’s Office, he also spray painted “BLM” and “Biden 2020” on his garage door.

Molla received almost $17,000 from two GoFundMe pages in addition to the $61,000 she received after submitting more than $300,000 in insurance claims. He was later forced to pay $3,850 in restitution and more than $18,000 in fines.

Shannon further stated that the Colorado Bureau of Investigation was liaising with her to “ensure their prosecution, and protect” her “father’s future”, adding that the alleged abuse was “believed to be perpetrated by a trusted caregiver.” However, the Coming to America actor claimed that wasn’t the case after over $13,000 was raised.

“She would be the primary suspect — if you would,” the 83-year-old actor said in a video from a hospital bed. “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.”

Following his daughter’s claims, John also informed the news outlet that he was “doing well.” “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 on the GoFundMe page.”

He also said he wasn’t in the ICU or was ever fighting for his life. “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,” he added.

However, a representative for Shannon told PEOPLE that the actor’s daughter had been left “disheartened at the continuation of false and defamatory statements being made against her by, or on behalf of, or in connection with news reports based on social media posts by Mr. Kelly K.C. Amos.”

Her representative also said she’s  “exploring all legal remedies available to her,” adding that “Ms. Amos hopes this matter will be resolved soon through the proper authorities.”
