Casey Kasem
... the legendary DJ who hosted America's Top 40 for decades, is in dire condition, and a family feud has erupted between Casey's kids and their stepmom.

Jean Kasem -- Casey's wife -- will NOT allow Kerri, Julie and Mike to visit their father, who lives in the exclusive Holmby Hills area near Bev Hills.   We're told they've been trying to make contact with their dad for 3 months, to no avail.

Casey -- who is 81 and has advanced Parkinson's --  hasn't been heard from in months. 

The kids are outside the house right now ... with a group of friends, family and former co-workers of Casey -- and we're told Jean has just called the cops trying to get them away from the property.

Casey's brother, who is on the scene, tells TMZ Jean has had a strained relationship with Casey's kids for years.  The brother says he hasn't spoken with Jean since Casey married her -- 33 years.  Kerri, Casey's oldest daughter, tells us Jean has aggressively blocked the kids from the house.

Kerri tells us it's not about money.  The kids have all been excluded from Casey's will and they've known that for a long time.  She says they just want to see their dad, and they can't.

Kerri tells us she wants to send a message to her dad:  "Your children are here for you.  We have not abandoned you."

It very well may be that Kasey has asked Jean to support his decision to not let the kids see him in this condition. Let's give Jean the benefit of the doubt.

End stage Parkinson's is horrible - it really is a very cruel disease. 33 years is a hell of a rift in their family. Probably more going on than just the remarriage.

I'm beginning to most favor?


Stories about wicked-unstable-dark-women with bad intent and motive.


There's nothing more interesting than an unstable, wicked, beautiful woman.

This is what you do -


You surprise The_Wicked.


Come out of Nowhere on them.


With a well-choreographed, well-rehearsed scene


Such as this one -


...so Jean panics, mis-reacts.


-Unwittingly brings in the media and police.


Perfect for the family and the children.


Worst-case-scenario ... for 'ol Jean.

This is such a sad story. We do not know what has happened over the years to really judge this situation. She should let his children and family visit him if death is knocking at his door. Let them say goodbye what harm can that do?

@ ITALIA
This sounds like the same thing that happened when Aaron Spelling died. Everything went to his wife Candi, but the daughter, Tori, thought SHE was supposed to get everything. Candi took the money and ran and told Tori where she could go, and that's her flesh and blood daughter!

Praise to you, Italia, for all of your incisive posts.


And?


For bringing in the great Tori Spelling, who initially told her Mom to take/shove Aaron's money.


I do wonder what kind of father Casey was, though


For not going out of his way, bringing in some therapists, trying to get his kids' perspective and feeling on this -


Suggests poor leadership at the top - perhaps even callousness.


Like it's his money so he says.


Might be wrong, hope I am ... but it smells like that a little doesn't it?

The kids need to piss of. The wife of 33 years is the next of kin.

I'm not surprised.. I use to work for Jean and her baby killing cribs.. She was always very vindictive and selfish; especially when it came to Casey..

@ *_* JUST A FRIEND *_*
."..Why did Casey's kids concern to see him barley start three months ago ??? He's in the advanced stages of Parkinson's, Casey has obviously been sick for a long time...It wouldn't be surprising to find out, that his kids haven't been as active in his life as they could've been...I guaranty Jean has hired help, to remove the burden of caring for Casey herself...So its probably a load of BULL-SH!T if she tries taking credit for his care...Quit frankly, it sound like Casey is being circled by VULTURES all around...An all around sad situation...!!! TESTIFY !!! SHINE FOREVER !!!..."

Gonna get spanked for this one...But I'm on Jean's side. Kids don't give a hoot for years and now want to see their dad? Seems to me that if Casey had wanted to see his kids, he would have long before now. My kids don't give me the time of day. On my death bed they'll be the last faces I want to see.
