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."

If he hasn't had contact with them in 33 years and cut them out of his will he probably doesn't want to see them. Jean is probably carrying out his wishes.

I hope the truth comes out because this is a terribly sad story. Who cuts their 3 children out of the will? I hope the children do interviews. They should.

I always thought she was nothing more than a piece of trash who married into the lucky delusional rich man club of she loves me for me, turns out I was right. I do feel sorry for Casey he is the greatest I learned a great deal about music from listening to his top 40 and because of that appreciate and listen to every style of music.

It sounds to me she is afraid that Casey want to include them in his will. It all depends on the rrelationship they all had before his illness. My brother died from the disease and he was mentally sharp up to the last moment. She will get hers in the end.

First off Casey's wife can not legally bar his children from seeing him, unless she can prove they are a danger to him or want to cause harm. The other thing is why has Casey excluded his children from his will, was this something the bitch of a wife put him up to? What is his wife trying to hide, that's the question.

it does not matter if the kids did not get along with the stepmom, it's their dad they want to see, not here, for all he knows, she has probably told him, they want nothing to do with him, she should let the kids in so they can see their dad.

that is just wrong. Every child should be able to see their family members during their last days.

People are assuming she's some kind of gold-digger. They have been married a very long time.
There is often more to these situations than the greedy young wife and the poor helpless family. She could very well be protecting him from them.
