Casey Kasem

He's Dying ...

A Few Months to Live

Casey Kasem
will die in the next few months ... this according to a rep for Casey's wife Jean.

As we reported, Casey and Jean were sued by a former caregiver who claimed she was mistreated and cheated by Jean during her employment with the couple.  The housekeeper, Hilda Loza, sued in small claims court and the case was heard Friday.

Jean did not appear at the hearing.  The wife of her lawyer appeared on Jean's behalf.  The woman told the judge ... Jean wanted a continuance for a few months because that's how long it will take for "the situation to resolve or end, unfortunately."

If that seems a little cryptic, Jean submitted legal docs in which she said, "My husband is terminally ill and unable to leave home."

The case was thrown out because Hilda didn't properly serve the Kasem's with the lawsuit.  She has the right to try again, but it looks like the clock is ticking.

I listen to an old program of Casey's-on FM radio talking about the top 40 music and great band's of the era- his voice is very uplifting, when I listen to him-

Whether or not he dies, he is very important; and part of the music industry!

His death will likely come sooner than "a few months." Advanced dementia patients, which is what we've been told Casey is suffering from, die from starvation. The starvation brings about organ failure, but it's the fact they cannot eat or drink anymore that's the primary cause of death.


I lost an uncle recently this way, after watching him decline for years.. Peace to the Kasem family.

Listened to him as a tween many years ago. Something I looked forward to all the time as my parents were going through a divorce & fighting constantly. His soothing voice & music were my only solace back then. Thank you, Mr. Casem. I hope your not suffering. Godspeed.

My dad died of the exact same thing...Parkinson's with dementia. It is brutal and devastating. Work this out people. It will be better for all involved...even after he's gone.

SUE, SUE, SUE IS ALL SOME PEOPLE THINK ABOUT.....BUT CASEY'S WIFE NEEDS TO LET HIS CHILDREN SEE HIM BEFORE HE PASSES. SHE IS DEFINITELY WRONG BY NOT LETTING THEM SEE HIM. IF HE WERE MY DAD, I WOULD DEFINITELY BEEN THERE COME HELL OR HIGH WATER WEATHER SHE (JEAN) LIKES IT OR NOT.....

The only thing wrong with Lara Flynn Boyle is botched plastic surgery. She has apparently not held up well with age, but her face is really messed up now!

Jean is hiding something. Casey's kids had better get off their duff and do something, QUICK. When their father is gone, it will be too late.

I don't understand why Mrs. KASEM refused to let his children to see their father. What's a shame? That's unacceptable behavior she has before.
