Casey Kasem's wife and his daughter Julie Kasem have reached an agreement regarding the radio personality’s placement in a conservatorship, according to a Dec. 21 Fox News report. The details of the settlement between Kasem’s wife Jean and Julie are confidential, according to Julie’s attorney Andrew Katzenstein.
Casem’s daughter Julie sought a conservatorship, noting that she and her siblings were not allowed to see their 81-year-old father, who suffers from advanced Parkinson’s disease.
People magazine reports that 38-year-old Julie withdrew her request for legal control at a Los Angeles Superior Court hearing on Friday.
“It's been resolved,” Julie's attorney Andrew Katzenstein told the magazine following the hearing. “We're glad the case was able to settle.”
Jean Kasem’s attorney echoed Katzenstein’s sentiments. “Jeannie is very happy that the court proceeding has been dismissed and that a settlement agreement has been reached with regard to visitation. Jeannie is about to celebrate her 34th anniversary with Casey tomorrow, and his care, dignity, well-being and happiness are of primary importance.”
One person not a party to this settlement is Casey’s other daughter Kerri Kasem, whose attorney Troy Martin says may file a petition to see her father without some restrictions. “We think the visitation terms are too restrictive,” Martin said after the hearing. “There hasn't been an agreement reached between Kerri and Jean. It could require us to file another conservatorship. We're still in negotiations.”
