Casey Kasem's kids can collect insurance money
The sad story of Casey Kasem is getting resolved at least in one respect. From today's Tom Taylor column...
TMZ has been following the sad/bizarre story about Casey’s widow Jean, and the suspicions of Casey’s three children from his first marriage. They think that Jean (at the least) wasn’t a good guardian for their dad during his last months. Jean allegedly thinks the same thing about them and tried to keep insurer MetLife from paying off on Casey’s $2 million life insurance benefiting them, pending an investigation. But a California judge clears the payoff to be disbursed to a trust for his children (which include a daughter he had with Jean). “Countdown King” Casey Kasem died June 15, 2014 after he was moved multiple times while sick. He was buried last December (and this was definitely bizarre) in the snows of Oslo, Norway, from his beloved Los Angeles.
