This is SO sad!
Casey Kasem passed away on June 15th, but apparently his body still hasn’t been buried!
And part of the reason for that is because the body is still in Washington and not in Los Angeles where Casey Kasem wanted to be laid to rest!
The famous voice of American Top 40 passed away this past Father’s Day from Parkinson's disease, dementia and sepsis.
While his widow Jean Kasem has accused Casey’s children of trying to grab their late father’s life insurance policy - the daughter, Kerri Kasem, claims her stepmother is just stalling because she knows there’s going to be an investigation about whether elderly abuse occurred while in her care!
Here’s what Kerri recently said:
“I don't know what's going on with [Jean] and why she makes the decisions she does. If I knew I would tell you. I would try and make amends. I would say, 'I'm sorry Jean. What happened? … Why do you hate us so much?’”
And here’s what Jean Kasem recently said:
“Their impatience for Casey to die was obvious… and now their impatience to collect on the life insurance is even more telling.”
Kerri Kasem and her siblings are also claiming that the reason why Jean moved Casey from California to Washington state was because she wanted to keep him away from his children. They also believe it was a bedsore that he got on this trip that contributed to his death!
Whenever his body is flown back to where Casey wanted to be buried, Glendale, California, it will be the stepmother Jean who apparently will handle the funeral arrangements.
Hopefully the fighting between these two parties can be put on pause just long enough for them both to bury Casey Kasem.
We’re sure he wouldn’t them squabbling over parts of his estate before he’s even in the ground, right???
