It's been more than a decade since Kerri Kasem has been inside the sprawling multimillion-dollar Los Angeles mansion of her famous father, Casey Kasem. It's been three months since she last saw him at all, when weekly visits outside the home with his three children from his first marriage came to an abrupt stop.
Kerri, 41, and a growing number of Kasem's loved ones, point the finger at Kasem's second wife, Jean.
Kasem, 81, the legendary host of radio countdown show American Top 40, has advanced Parkinson's disease, and his family and friends – including his other daughter Julie, 38; his son Mike, 40; his younger brother Mouner, 77 – say he's been cut off from the outside world by his wife of more than three decades.
"Keeping us from our father is the worst thing she could possibly do for his health," says Kerri, a host on Clear Channel radio, who adds their relationship with Jean, 59, has been estranged their whole lives.

NBC's new primetime game show Million Second Quiz wants to have you at your mobile device of choice, your thumbs typing away with urgency and delight.
On that level, perhaps it will succeed. But that isn't the same as biting your nails in suspense or excitement.
Hosted by Ryan Seacrest – you were expecting Carol Channing? – the show airs live every night (except Sunday) through Sept. 19. It's a fairly elementary multiple-choice trivia challenge, but built into an ambitious framework of bells and whistles and social and digital media signifiers.
