Casey Kasem

Momentary Treaty Reached ...

There will be no tug-of-war over Casey Kasem's body ... Casey's kids have turned over his remains to his widow, Jean Kasem.

An attorney for daughter Kerri Kasem tells TMZ Jean's attorney reached out to request the body be released to her. We're told Kerri obliged immediately, and notified the hospice where Casey died that his wife would be handling funeral arrangements.

We're told Kerri and Jean never spoke directly ... only through attorneys.

As we previously reported -- Kerri's role as conservator expired when her father died Father's Day morning. Jean is the executor of Casey's will.  

According to a recent filing of Casey's health directive ... he wanted a burial.

We're told as of yesterday the body remained in Washington State.

This is all kinds of wrong. Casey didn't leave anything to the children in his will but supposedly trusted one of them to decide his medical fate? Yeah right. The kids don't want the body because they don't want the costs of burying him. My condolences to Jean and Liberty. RIP Casey.

Yeah, NOW they give him to the widow. So they don't have to pay for the funeral. He is dead to them, so therefore useless.

Those are great kids! And Jean is simply a wife that couldn''t let go. I really don't think there is anything evil here.

There is going to be a HUGE fight over the will. That's a given.

I'm glad, but I figured they would. All along I think all they wanted was to see their father again, and that I can understand quite well.

Is Casey Kasem the new Mommy Dearest? He left them out of the will for "reasons known to them". He allowed that blonde bimbo to run his life. The kids don't even WANT his money. Screw you Jean you selfish buffoon.

the irony of it all, wanted him dead. watch him die on fathers day, then it's over for them. sounds heartless. but money will do that to kids.

His kids were not interested in his body they justed wanted his money after they pulled all the plugs on his life support so that he would die a little quicker.
