Members of legendary radio personality Casey Kasem’s family are locked in a bitter feud with each other as the DJ battles Parkinson’s disease, according to a report.

Kasem’s wife Jean has reportedly blocking his three children from visiting their ailing father, according to TMZ.com, and Kerri, Julie and Mike Kasem have not been able to contact the “Scooby-Doo” star for three months.

On Tuesday Kasem’s three children, along with friends and co-workers, protested the alleged lock-out during a camp-out in front of his house.

Kasem’s brother has also joined the protest and tells TMZ.com that Jean has had a strained relationship with her stepkids for years – and that he hasn’t spoken to Jean since his brother married her three decades ago.
