NASHVILLE, TENN. (AP) - It’s not his health but a family feud that is bothering George Jones.

The 80-year-old country star posted a video message on his website Wednesday, thanking fans as he recovers from an upper respiratory infection. He then accused his daughter Georgette Lennon of spreading lies about him on the Internet.

He was hospitalized for nearly a week last month and had to postpone shows.

Lennon’s mother is country singer Tammy Wynette.

Jones claims Lennon has been “putting so much bad things” about him on the Internet and Facebook. He says “none of these things are true. They are all about money.”

Lennon says she is “completely devastated” by his message and denies making any negative statements. She tells The Associated Press that she has “never wanted anything but his love.”
