In your sad and strange news of the day, Casey Kasem, 82, was hospitalized in Washington on June 1 after his daughter, Kerri Kasem, arrived at the house he was staying with an ambulance and paramedics in tow because she feared that her father’s health was declining even further. In a bizarre twist, her stepmother Jean Kasem, would not allow Kerri into the house and even threw raw hamburger meat at her!
Casey Kasem: Wife Jean Kasem Throws Hamburger Meat At Daughter Kerri Kasem
Once Kerri arrived with paramedics, Jean would not let them inside, according toNBC News. Jean even called 911, summoning a second ambulance and a fire truck. Once the fire truck was called away, Jean threw raw hamburger meat at her daugher, Kerri. Yes, you read that right.
Later, Kerri told NBC News that she cited a King James verse as she threw the hamburger meat: “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.”
Casey Kasem Hospitalized In The Wake Of Lung And Bladder Infections And Bed Sores
Casey is currently suffering from Parkinson’s and the legal battle over who would take care of the ailing Casey has persisted for a while now. On May 30, Kerri testified at a hearing that Casey had developed bed sores, as well as infections in his lungs and bladder. Later that day, Jean held a press conference in which she played a cell phone recording of Casey moaning, claiming that he was protesting the judge’s decision allowing Kerri to be in charge of Casey’s medical care.
Some sad, strange stuff is happening in the Kasem family right now, but paramedics were finally able to go in and take Casey away and the iconic radio host is now receiving proper medical care.
Our thoughts are with the Kasem family during this strange, difficult time, and we hope that each of them receive the medical treatment they need — that includes Jean, too, whose mental stability is clearly questionable.
