Radio icon go be gone soon...
A judge has granted Casey Kasem's daughter the right to withhold medication, food and fluids from the radio legend. Billboard reports that according to attorney Troy Martin, the judge in the case has determined that giving Kasem food and fluids will only cause more pain to him.
The eighty-two year-old former radio personality has been in an ailing condition for some time, with Kerri Kasem having implemented end-of-life measures on June 6th. Jean Kasem, his wife of thirty-four years, had the measures blocked on Monday and Murphy ordered the reinstatement of feeding and care while an attorney appointed by the court consulted with him and doctors.
Kasem was a regular fixture on the air for decades, with his weekly Top 40 countdown syndicated throughout the country. According to TMZ, Jean was present for the decision and stormed out afterward, yelling that Kerri and her sisters will have his blood on their hands.
On behalf of 411, our best wishes to the Kasem family during this difficult time.
