Casey Kasem is 81 years old and battling Parkinson’s disease and is being taken care of by his wife Jean Kasem. However, his children by his first wife, Linda Myers, are now preparing themselves for a legal fight to be the primary decision makers in his care. His daughter Kerri released a statement on his the current situation:
“It’s been really difficult, but I am hoping she comes out and says, you know, ‘I’m sorry. Of course you can see your dad. But we’ve heard nothing from her. Nothing. So our next step is legal action. We don’t have a relationship with her. I mean, literally, I haven’t been to that house in more than a decade. I have seen Jean twice in 15 years…And it’s like, nobody’s fighting; she just has never wanted a relationship with us.”
This fight seems to have underlying issues beyond his health care and it will be interesting to see I his children when. Most importantly, will Casey live through all of this legal action?
In the meantime, we send a round of support for Casey Kasem.
