Casey Kasem

KIDS CHALLENGE WIFE

FILE FOR CONSERVATORSHIP

EXCLUSIVE

It's between the wife and kids of Casey Kasem -- his kids have just filed legal docs to win a conservatorship, seizing control from their stepmom ... TMZ has learned.

We broke the story ... Casey's 3 adult kids have been blocked from even seeing their ailing dad -- who is suffering from advanced Parkinson's. 

Our sources say the kids gave Jean an ultimatum over the weekend ... deal with them or else they'd file legal docs today.   We're told it was radio silence at Jean's house, so family sources tell us .. the kids just made their move.

Wrestling control from Jean -- who has been married to Casey for 33 years -- will be next to impossible, but they're definitely trying.

As for what caused the rift, we're hearing different stories from both sides -- pretty typical.

This is the best move for his children to make. It "feels' as if there are mental health issues with Jean. Persevere and you will be able to visit with your dad.

It sounds like Jean went a little too far with not letting the public see casey in this state of mind.

If they cared about him shouldn't they have tried to mend fences sooner? Now it looks like they are hoping for some payout. He's not mentally with it so the goodbyes would be for them not him and since they didn't care before it's too late now.

Good luck or the kids and family to get in to see their father. However TMZ you keep making it only about the kids. You don't say that she hasn't only banned the kids. Shes banned all his friends from seeing him. neighbors, life long friends all are being blocked from seeing him. I hope they get a chance to see their father and say goodbye before its too late.

His kids obviously need a long distance dedication.

Casey's second wife has no right to ban his own children from seeing him. She does not own him body and soul. His children have known him longer than she has. It's good the kids took it to court because a judge will work out a visitation time for the kids to see their father. The past disagreements the kids and current wife have won't be consider before the judge. A man is dying and he and they have rights to see him to say good-bye. It's not the time to be playing vindictive games.

I knew this was going to end up with lawyers arguing about Kasem's money.

this is the best way for the kdis to see their father. sad it had to come to this but Jean gave them no over options though a conservator ship will be hard to get even for Casey. hope the kids have luck if nothing else for Caseys sake of having all his family again.

One can hope that the kids legitimately have Casey's best interests at heart and aren't trying to go after his money. Even then, I doubt they would get a conservatorship but the judge will most likely create a visitation schedule and a way for the kids to be up to date on his medical condition and care. It's hard to say who is right and wrong is this situation. Jean may be doing this out of vindictiveness, greed or whatever but we are not part of that family none of us are in a place to judge. We can only hope the judge forces avenues of communication on all parties.
