Radio personality Casey Kasem’s wife was recently served with a court order temporarily suspending her powers to regulate her husband’s medical care. Kasem, who is suffering from a form of dementia called Lewy Body Disease, has received media attention for his ongoing dispute with his ex-wife, as well as his brief disappearance. In an interview, Jean Kasem said her husband is receiving the best possible care and she “is not going to allow anybody to shred her family on unfounded facts and malicious accusations.”
Last week Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Daniel Murphy ordered Jean Kasem to comply with court orders that would allow doctors to evaluate her husband, and also permit his daughter Kerri to see him. Judge Murphy expressed his concerns about Kasem’s whereabouts and safety during the quarrel between his wife and children from another marriage.
