Oct. 2 (UPI) -- Casey Kasem, the DJ who hosted "America's Top 40" for decades and is in ailing condition, is in the middle of a family feud, as his current wife will not allow his children to visit him.

Jean Kasem has reportedly refused to let Kerri, Julie and Mike visit their father who lives in the Holmby Hills area near Bev Hills. Casey Kasems's children have been unsuccessfully trying to make contact with their father over the past three months.

Casey Kasem, 81, has advanced Parkinson's and has not been heard from in months.

The former DJ's children are currently protesting outside their father's house with a group of friends, family and former co-workers of Casey. According to TMZ, Jean Kasem has called police to try to get them off the property.

Casey Kasem's brother, who is at the scene, told TMZ Jean Kasem has had a strenuous relationship with her stepchildren for years. He added that he hasn't spoken to his brother since he wed his current wife.

Kerri, the former DJ's oldest daughter, said her stepmother has been aggressively keeping her and her siblings from going into her house for a long time. She added that neither she nor her siblings are looking to get any money from their father, as they were taken off his will years ago and they don't care.
