And the legal drama continues.
On Wednesday, Casey Kasem‘s children and brother filed a lawsuit against his widow — Jean Kasem — for wrongful death and elder abuse.
According to documents filed at the Los Angeles Superior Court :
“Casey’s early death occurred as a direct and proximate result of Jean’s neglect and physical abuse of Casey.”
This isn’t the first time Kerri, Julie, and Michael Kasem have accused the disc jockey’s late wife of harm.
Earlier this year, prosecutors declined to pursue legal action against the 61-year-old.
By filing this civil case, the Casey kin hope to raise awareness about elder abuse.
The radio legend’s family members are seeking more than $250,000 in damages.
