What's Jean Kasem's game?

Yes, the link is from the Daily Mail, so if that offends your delicate sensibilities, don't click on it... Police were called to Casey Kasem's house on Tuesday after a family feud between his wife and children turned nasty. Casey's children Kerri, Julie and Mike arrived at their father's plush Holmby Hills address to demand Karem's second wife Jean let them see the DJ. The 81-year-old star is seriously ill with advanced Parkinson's disease. The legendary DJ, who hosted America's Top 40 from 1970 for three decades has not been heard from in months. According to TMZ, Jean called police in an effort to get get the children, plus a group of Casey's friends and co-workers, away from the property. The website reports that the children have been attempting to see their father for three months. His oldest daughter Kerri alleges Jean has 'aggressively blocked the kids from the house.' Kerri, a radio and television host, told the website their stand was not about money, revealing she and her brother and sister already know they have been excluded from Casey's will. In fact, she and her siblings - from Casey's first marriage to Linda Myers - just want to see their father. 'Your children are here for you,' Kerri told the website. 'We have not abandoned you." The group held signs up with various messages imploring Jean to relent. One of his daughters held up a neon placard with the words: 'Jean, why won't you let me see my Dad.' Meanwhile, Casey's brother, who hasn't spoken to Jean in the 33 years since her marriage to the DJ, said Jean has had a 'strained' relationship with her stephildren for 'years.' He held up a placard which read: 'I miss my brother.' Along with his successful DJ-ing career, Casey was a prominent voiceover actor, famously voicing the character of Shaggy in the Scooby-Do franchise.
