Casey Kasem

Family Feud

Cops Called

10/1/2013 4:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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."

This is why you need to know who you are freakin marrying when they are to be a step parent to your kids. This is just downright evil and cruel to do to the children of your spouse when it is obvious that he is going to die. Psychotic biotch! This isn't about you!

Y'all don't know the whole story....How do you know that those kids were not a bunch of nasty pri**s all his life and now just want to appease their own consciences(sp?) before he dies? If that be the case let them be to their own conscience, would serve them right....just saying..

Parkinson's involves dementia as the disease progresses. Is Kasem competent to make the decision that he does not want to see his kids as well as sign a will? Does he have related dementia issues and Altzheimer's disease? His trophy wife was quite a blonde bimbo during her hey day, on the par with Ice Cube's woman with the butt. She seems to wear the pants but to have the kids and friends picket the home seems extreme and very questionable.

Sounds like she would be a friend of Kris Jenner.

Is this the same woman who played Carla's ex-husband's new ditzy blonde wife on Cheers? Never would've guessed her to be such a heartless biotch.

Casey, I doubt your gold digging wife, (with her fake gold hair), won't let you see this, but I listened to the top forty every Sunday when I was a teen. I still got my feet on the ground and still reaching for the sky. Thank you.

If the kids are stupid enough to make signs and hold them outside the house, then Jean is right not to let those losers in. If he wanted to see the kids, he would have called for them.

a long time Leno fan!    

He is so down to earth, always happy words for his music hit radio show. Fun short love stories along the way in every show. 'And now, on with the countdown!' Neat guy. Family issues in every family, pity.

My father has Parkinson's and I can't imagine him not wanting us to be there for him as a whole family. That's what you do when someone is sick ban together... It's not a time to be selfish. Sad for his kids tonight.

This woman always appeared to me as a loonie bin. I wonder what she is hiding from them?
