Casey Kasem's Widow Wife Jean Kasem Is Burying His Body In Norway AGAINST His And His Children's Wishes! And She May Not Even Be Norwegian!

casey kasems widow wife is burying his body in norway against his and his childrens wishes

What a mess this is turning out to be!

Iconic American Top 40 radio host Casey Kasem, who passed away in June, is still not buried over two months after his death.

And while his children say his wish was to be buried at Forest Lawn in Glendale, California, his wife Jean Kasem is planning to fly his body to Oslo, Norway to be buried there!

But while Jean claims that she's doing this because she has Norwegian blood in here, her nephew claims that is NOT the case at all!

Here's what the nephew Tommy Thompson said:

"As far as we know, we are English, German and Native American. We have never ever heard anyone speak of Norway or [speak] Norwegian for that matter in our house. We don”t have an ounce of Norwegian blood to our knowledge."

Wow! That's bizarre!

The rest of Casey's family are trying to prevent Jean from flying his body to the country, but they don't have a lot of options to fight her!

Here's what their publicist Danny Deraney said:

"As you may have seen, Jean Kasem is planning to attempt to bury Casey Kasem in Oslo, Norway. She sent an open letter to the Norwegian government declaring among other things, her Norwegian ancestry. The children, the family and friends want Casey Kasem to be buried in the place he requested, Forest Lawn in Glendale. Not to a foreign country he has never visited…He publicly made it clear to his friends, his kids, that he wanted to be buried in Forest Lawn in Glendale, in Los Angeles."

Unfortunately Jean Kasem is the legal conservator of Casey's body and technically can do whatever she pleases with him - no matter how morally wrong it seems!

The head of the funeral service administration in Oslo, Norway, Wenche Madsen Eriksson recently confirmed the burial plans when he said:

"It's been arranged, he's going to Oslo."

Darn - that seems kind of final!!!

We hear Casey’s daughter Kerri is determined to write a letter to the Norwegian government to try and see if they can help her and her siblings out.

Hopefully that works! Because this does NOT seem like something Casey would've want!

And it would be a shame if his children would be so far away from their beloved late father's resting place!!!

    That is beyond mean. However, not to worry as the body is like a cocoon. Your beautiful Dad is with you each and everyday. His spirit walks with you each and every day - just like how the sun makes you feel warm that is like his love. The body is not Casey, but his spirit is free and just like Sir Elton John's words describe - you\re a butterfly and butterflies are free to fly away - bye bye - and that is exactly what he did - he is with you - just let it go ♥ from above.

    Re: bridgegal66 – Nice post, thank you.
    I agree she is just being very mean, not sure what is wrong with her but something must be up.

    After providing for her for all those years, why would she go against his wishes as to where he wanted to buried? That's a betrayal of him at the end.

    she better be getting him cremated…because she MURDERED him and it's going to come back and bite her in the ass if she doesn't

    This women is WIFE FROM HELL for sure !
    How could she do this to Casey and his kids? She is MEAN and has something to hide… like how she treated him in his final days of life.

    There has to be something done here to stop this mad women.

    That wife is a total b1tch. Absolutely horrible!

    Re: Jason – She wanted him to live for as long as possible.
    The step kids went to court to have his live support withdrawn and he died from that. Give it a rest with the crazy accusations

    She is the legal wife/widow and gets to say where he is buried. The wishes of her step children do not matter legally.

    That's such a crock. Her mother is buried there. At any rate, she does not need the stepchildren's permission where to bury her husband. They are just a bunch of troublemakers and p I s s e d because Casey wrote them out of his will.

    LOL his kids from a previous short marriage are getting their Scientology friends to write nasty comments about Jean.
    But it does not matter how many cultists crawl out of the woodwork.
    Jean was married to Casey for over 30 years and they have a child of their own. THEY are his legal heirs and get to say where he is buried.

    Scientology step kids? OY.
    This cult has a history of nasty lawsuits and trying to blacken people's character, does it not?
    So we know where all the nasty comments are coming from, right?
    But no matter, Jean has legal possession of Caseys body and gets ro say where he is buried.
    The step children from hell can go suck an egg.

    Norwegian or not. If she want him buried there it is her perfect right. \
    Those awful adult kids now perfectly well that they don't have any cause to bring against her. My sympathies go to Jean.

  16. Mary says – reply to this

    Re: Sickening – She could not possibly have been a wife from hell. Kasey stayed with her for 35 years. I think the step kids are jealous of her.

    Not hard to see why Katie Holmes employed such extraordinary measures when she divorced Tom Cruise, a Scientologist. Her father is a lwayer and knew what he was up against. Horrible bunch.

    Re: Sickening – Do shut up, please. Kids from a previous marriage do not get to run the show.
    When their father remarried, Jean and the child became his rightful heirs and they can determine where the man will be buried.
    You all know perfectly well what the laws are.
    If his widow wants to be buried in Norway with Casey, so be it. Her decision.

    I was thinking the same thing. Smear campaigns is what cults are good at, it's an unfortunate pattern.

    Bury or cremate him and be done with this shit. It's tiresome and worse than the James Brown feud over his body.His legs were cut off and evry1 got a piece of him….which is DISGUSTING.

    Cremate him and keep his ashes in an urn.
    The step kids do not need any further consideration, especially since they were so hateful toward Jean.

    Just a little bit of info, Wenche is a girls' name.

    Perhaps this idea that he wanted to be buried at Glendale cemetary is bunk, because you'd think his wife of 30+ years would know about that better than the quoted 'friends and kids.'
    If he did want that then Norway is ridiculous, but if he told Jean it doesn't matter then it's for her to decide…but his friends and kids won't be able to visit him with any regularity.

    Isn't Jean's mother buried in Norway? It's a good place to be buried, far away from the H'wood circus.

    If you stop reading this you will die. My name is Teresa Fidaglo, if you don’t post this on 20 photos I will sleep with you forever. A girl skipped this and 29 hours later her mom died. I am real you can google me.“

    That little interfering hussy, Kerri Kasem,needs to mind her own beeswax. Jean is his wife. These kids act like she doesn't exist or something. They just want to get some money out of the deal. I would imagine that they might have forged his signature to all those documents.

    Regardless of what anybody else thinks. She is his wife and they were married for 34 years. He left it up to her to take care of the funeral and burial. If she wants to bury him in Norway then she can bury him in Norway. End of Story.
