If you’ve been wondering where legendary radio host Casey Kasem has been, he is currently suffering from advanced Parkinson’s disease and has been spending most of his time in his Holmby Hills, California area home. Now, Casey Kasem’s family is feuding with their dad’s second wife Jean. His three eldest children haven’t been able to get in touch with him for three months, and they blame their stepmother.

From US Weekly:

“My dad is very sick, and we have been completely shut off from him for the last three months,” Kerri, 41, told the New York Daily News. “There is no money issue here, we just want to see our dad. We love him, and everyone knows his kids and grandkids are a source of joy for him.”

ABC 7 in LA reports:

“He can’t really speak, but he knows we’re there. And last time we saw him, he could shuffle a little bit. He had a hard, very hard, time walking. He was just deteriorating due to Parkinson’s disease,” Kerri Kasem said.

If you’re like me, you miss hearing Casey on the radio. He became famous in the 70s and 80s as he hosted various radio countdown shows, mainly ‘American Top 40′. Did you know he was the voice of the character of Shaggy on the cartoon show Scooby-Doo?

We wish you the best Casey and we hope your family comes together during these trying times.
