The Netflix star, who is currently serving a 22-year prison sentence on murder for hire and animal abuse convictions, has asked to be released to get proper medical care.
Taking to Twitter, the 58-year-old wrote: “John Phillips has received my medical records from FMC Fort Worth and my PSA count came back very high for prostate cancer.”
“The prison has approved testing to verify what stage it is in.”
“My body is tired, I have lost a tremendous amount of weight, the mouth sores are out of control, I throw up more than I eat.”
He went on: “I don’t want anyone’s pity, what I need is when John Phillips gets the evidence he is working on, I need the world to help him get President Biden, VP Harris and the Attorney General to listen to the evidence and see that it’s not just city cops out of control with corruption, but his very own Department of Justice and make this right and sign that pardon that Trump left behind so I can go home and get proper medical care and proper food.”
