The late Casey Kasem has still not been buried, as the feud between his wife and children grows more and more hostile.

Mrs Kasem accused his daughter Kerri of calling his funeral home to ask how quickly a death certificate could be issued so his sizeable policy could be cashed out.

However, Kerri has hit back, saying that Jean hasn't had Casey body flown out to L.A. for burial yet because she is trying to deflect attention from an imminent investigation into elderly abuse.

Kerri Kasem also told The View that she could not remember why the feud had started.

She said: 'If I knew I would tell you. I would try and make amends. I would say, ''I'm sorry Jean. What happened? ... Why do you hate us so much?'''

Mr Kasem died on June 15 - Father's Day - aged 82 from Parkinson's disease, dementia and sepsis.

Kerri Kasem claimed Jean took him out of his rest home and moved him around the U.S. at the end of his life to keep him away from family.

During the trip he developed a bedsore which contributed to his death, his children have claimed.

Jean is now arguing that the whole saga is a ploy by his children to get their hands on his money.

According to TMZ, Jean said: 'Their impatience for Casey to die was obvious... and now their impatience to collect on the life insurance is even more telling.'

Ugh, Jean Kasem, for fuck's sake.


During temporary conservator Kerri Kasem's visit to see her father on June 1 in Washington state, Jean Kasem threw meat at her as he was preparing for a trip to the hospital.

'In the name of King David, I threw a piece of raw meat into the street in exchange for my husband to the wild rabid dogs,' she told NBC News.

I was playing with a Star Wars action figure once and I mishandled it quite terribly. No one was injured because, unlike a gun, it was a fucking toy.
