In a bizarre story out of Holmby Hills near Beverly Hills in California, Jean Kasem – the wife of the famed “America’s Top 40” radio disc jockey, Casey Kasem – is not allowing is not allowing Kasem’s three children to see him as he is living in her house and ailing from advanced stages of Parkinson’s disease, according to a UPI report on Tuesday.
Kasem’s children – Kerri, Julie, and Mike – have been trying to make contact with Kasem, who is now 81 years old, since July. With their step-mother disallowing them to see him, the three have joined with other family members and some friends to protest in front of the house. Reportedly, Jean Kasem has called police in an effort to get the protesters off of Casey Kasem’s property.
As the former disc jockey deals with his ailing health, the three children continue their fight to see their father. Money is not an issue, according to Kasem’s oldest daughter Kerri, as all three children were removed from Kasem’s will a long time ago. They simply want to see their father.
