Casey Kasem hospitalized

Sadly, the family drama continues for aging radio icon Casey Kasem. (Via Flickr / Alan Light)

​He was hospitalized Sunday after this scene. A fight erupted between Kasem's wife and his oldest daughter, Kerri, when Kerri said she'd be hospitalizing her father. And KCPQ has the strangest detail.

"Apparently Jean Kasem threw raw hamburger meat at his daughter, Kerri, who called the ambulance to take her dad to the hospital."

Casey Kasem Hospitalized After Family Fight

Yes, reportedly a pound of raw hamburger meat.

CNN mentions on Friday a Washington state judge gave Kerri Kasem the right to see her 82-year-old dad, who has dementia, and to take him to the doctor. Kerri won temporary conservatorship of Casey in a California court in May.

Family arguing erupted in May when Jean took Kasey from a nursing home in California to Washington, apparently without his children's knowledge.

​The New York Daily News reports they were found at the home of a friend. Kerri has alleged Jean is keeping Casey from his children because she thinks they will try to get him to change his will. (Via

But Jean says her husband's children have ruined their lives by involving the media in personal matters.

KING reports "Shame on these children. Shame. ... He wanted to go out strong. He wanted to leave beautiful memories. That was all torn apart."

Kerri says her dad is suffering from a bedsore and lung and bladder infections, but Jean argued he was receiving proper care. On June 6th, a hearing in Washington will determine if the California conservatorship order holds up. Then on the 20th in California, a hearing to see if the conservatorship will be extended.

Jean and Kasey have been married since 1980 and have one daughter, Liberty. Kerri and his two other children are from a previous marriage. (Via Flickr / Alan Light)

I don't know. If he were receiving proper care, he would not have the bed sores. This is a tough one. It sounds to me like the children from the previous marriage truly want their Father in the best hands of care. June 6th is not that far away and all we can do is all they can do, pray that only the best of care will be given Mr. Kasem. Goodness knows he gave so many of us the best of the best in his time.

When you’re doing a “wonderful job” in caring for an aging loved one suspicion comes about when your wonderful job has to be done in SECRET. When a caregiver starts denying access and excluding other family members as to the whereabouts of the patient that’s when tensions originate and motives are questioned.

Well since his children have said they will sign anything to relinquish all money to wife, if she just let' them see him, I guess that the wife is the only one who thinks about money.
