Report: Kasem Family Fighting To Continue
June 18, 2014 at 3:44 AM (PT)
Radio legend CASEY KASEM may have passed, but the surviving members of his family aren't about to mend fences any time soon. Although one NEW YORK DAILY NEWS story reports Kasem's three eldest children won't fight their estranged stepmother, JEAN KASEM, over authority regarding KASEM's final disposition, another story reports that KERRI KASEM still plans to file elder abuse charges against her stepmother with the SANTA MONICA POLICE next MONDAY.
Inciting the move was reports that private investigator LOGAN CLARKE came up with evidence that "JEAN KASEM has been romantically involved with a 40-something Canadian man known as “JP” who allegedly lives at the KASEM's MALIBU condo and regularly drives the late DJ’s black SUV."
One exhibit in KERRI KASEM's MAY 7th probate petition is a MARCH 19th letter from KERRI KASEM’s lawyer, TROY MARTIN, to JEAN KASEM’s lawyers,alleging that she previously told her husband that their marriage was over, and that "Mr. KASEM told (one of his doctors) that he had been divorced from Mrs. KASEM for years ... Witnesses will testify that Mrs. KASEM has been lying to Mr. KASEM for at least two years, telling him that they are divorced."
