While fans may not have heard from Casey Kasem in some time, the former radio personality's loved ones are continuing to speak out on his behalf.
Family and friends of the 81-year-old star, who claim that Kasem's health is currently deteriorating due to Parkinson's disease, appeared on the Today show this morning to continue their plea to see the former host of the American Top 40 countdown.
Kasem's three children, Julie, Kerri and Mike, from his previous marriage to Linda Myers, say they have not been able to see their father in three months because their stepmom and Casey's wife of over 30 years, Jean Kasem, is prohibiting them from visiting him.
Kerri, Mike and Julie say they do not have a relationship with their stepmother, who married Casey in 1980. Jean and Casey have one daughter together, Liberty, a singer-songwriter.
