Battle Over Control of Casey Kasem’s Medical Care Continues

Casey KasemAs I have previously discussed, the family of Casey Kasem has been battling for control over his medical care and visitation of the ailing radio personality. His wife, Jean Kasem, previously had control of medical decisions and was not allowing his children from a previous marriage to visit him. Now a judge has given control of Kasem’s care to his daughter and ordered that the children and their step-mother cannot visit Kasem at the same time. Which may be best, as one recent exchange between the two sides involved Jean Kasem throwing packaged meat at her step-daughter.
