Casey Kasem Children File For Conservatorship Of Father
October 8, 2013 at 2:28 PM (PT)
The three oldest children of CASEY KASEM went to court seeking a conservatorship over the radio icon, who is suffering from PARKINSON'S DISEASE, the N.Y. DAILY NEWS reports. A lawyer for KERRI, MIKE and JULIE KASEM filed a petition in LOS ANGELES SUPERIOR COURT asking for control over CASEY's medical care.
The three chose this tack after giving KASEM's current wife, JEAN, the weekend to privately respond to their request for visitation with their father (NET NEWS, 10/2). "We've heard nothing, absolutely nothing from her, and we're very worried," said KERRI. "My worst fear is that there's neglect and isolation going on."
The daughter also alleged that JEAN fired her father's two favorite caretakers and won't allow his friends to visit, either. "Isolation is a form of elder abuse, and we fear it's making his situation worse," she said.
