A group of family and friends held a protest outside of Casey Kasem’s Holmby Hills estate in an effort to see the ailing radio legend.
Kasem is 81 and deteriorating due to Parkinson’s disease. His kids, brother, and friends say his wife, Jean, has been preventing them from seeing Kasem for many months. They say she won’t answer phone calls and tells them to go away when they show up at her door. They hope this protest gets the word out so they might say goodbye to a loved one.
