Just when we think this story can’t get any weirder, it does!
We previously told you about how Casey Kasem’s wife Jean is planning to bury her husband in Norway, which his kids and friends say is against his wishes.
So, daughter Kerri Kasem penned an open letter to "Whom It May Concern," which was signed by all of Casey’s kids, as well as close friends. In the letter, Kerri explains:
“As beautiful as your country is, our father has never spoken of any desire to be buried in Norway either to us or to his friends. In fact, it was the opposite. Casey wanted to be buried in his hometown of Los Angeles, California, his home of over 53 years. Casey wanted to be buried in his hometown of Los Angeles, California, his home of over 53 years. Do not be fooled into believing his wife, Jean Kasem, who abandoned and isolated him during the last year of his life… We beg you, to please decline the request of Jean Kasem and her daughter Liberty to bury Casey Kasem in Norway.”
That’s not all though. Kerri also detailed that Jean isn’t even Norwegian, like she claims, and her nephew previously corroborated that, saying:
"As far as we know, we are English, German and Native American. We have never ever heard anyone speak of Norway or Norwegian for that matter in our house. We don't have an ounce of Norwegian blood to our knowledge.”
Kerri also had support from Lt. Governor of California Mike Curb, who was Casey’s best friend. Casey thought something like this would happen, and asked his friend to make sure that he was buried in Forest Lawn, not wherever Jean tried to put him.
Our hearts go out to this family who is going through so much on top of their father’s tragic passing.
Hopefully it’s figured out and he’s laid to rest soon.
