Casey Kasem’s Children Settle Wrongful Death Suit Against Widow Jean

Casey Kasem's Children's Settle Wrongful Death Suit Against His Widow Jean

(TMZ) — The legal battle between Casey Kasem ‘s children and his widow, Jean Kasem, is finally over — they’ve reached a settlement, but not everyone in the family’s happy.

Casey’s children filed docs requesting dismissal of their wrongful death suit against Jean. The court’s signed off on the dismissal this week — and a source connected to Casey’s daughter, Kerri Kasem, tells us both sides agreed on a settlement.

However, we’re told Kerri’s upset about how it all came to an end. We’re told she’s “distraught and heartbroken” because she feels her sister and brother and 2 attorneys forced the settlement on her.

You’ll recall … Kerri, Julie and Mike Kasem sued Jean back in 2015, claiming she’d caused their father’s death as a result of allegedly blocking him from seeing his kids before he passed. They also claimed she’d been abusing him while he suffered from dementia.

The children were accused of conspiring to kill him, but they were ultimately cleared of that … with authorities calling BS.

Jean herself also dodged criminal charges for the same allegation, but the kids went after her in civil court … and the case had dragged on for the past 4 years.

Casey — the legendary radio DJ — died in June 2014 from a combination of sepsis, UTI and a staph infection … something the children claimed was exacerbated by an unattended bedsore Jean allegedly neglected.

Stormy Daniels’ 2018 Ohio Strip Club Arrest Gets 2 Cops Fired

Published

on

By

COLUMBUS, OH (TMZ) — Two police officers who busted Stormy Daniels during her 2018 strip club gig in Ohio are outta work for what police now admit was a bogus arrest.

The Columbus Police Department announced its decision Thursday after it found officers Steven Rosser and Whitney Lancaster violated rules when they arrested Stormy on 3 counts of illegal sexually oriented activity. The department also said the officers lied during an internal investigation about the basis for their sting operation.

As you might remember, Columbus PD hauled in Stormy for motorboating an undercover cop . Ohio has strict laws on touching strippers. Stormy’s attorney at the time, Michael Avenatti , accused officers of setting her up and alleged the arrest was politically motivated — she’d gone public about her alleged affair with Donald Trump .

City officials ultimately determined Ohio’s no touching law should have only applied to regular performers and NOT Stormy, a guest performer.

Stormy’s charges were dropped within 24 hours, but she later sued the department and won a $450,000 settlement. The controversy also resulted in the police department disbanding its controversial vice squad following a federal corruption investigation.

The federal probe determined Rosser lied about the purpose of the strip club sting … saying he was searching for an underage stripper. The search never happened, and instead, they arrested Stormy. Two other officers were suspended for the arrest.

DaBaby Assaults Bev Hills Hotel Worker/Fan Asking for Pic

DaBaby Assaults Hotel Worker

BEVERLY HILLS (TMZ) — DaBaby likes his fans, but only so much, because when they ask for too much he might attack.

Check out the video … from a security cam at a Bev Hills hotel. We’re told the guy in the video is a hotel employee who followed DaBaby outside the lobby to get a pic. We’re told DaBaby turned the guy down, so he walked back in the lobby.

That’s when DaBaby and crew decided to administer some western justice, slamming the guy against the wall and roughing him up. The incident, which went down December 19, was a day after DaBaby performed at the Shrine.

DaBaby and crew left the hotel without further incident. Cops were not called.

It’s not DaBaby’s first run-in with fans. Last year he attacked a fan outside Louis Vuitton store in North Carolina. Also last year, DaBaby and crew beat a fan outside a concert in Massachusetts after the guy asked for a pic.

DaBaby’s attorney, Michael Heiskell, tells TMZ … “Any actions taken by DaBaby were likely in self defense based upon his recall of the events and until the video is thoroughly reviewed we have no further comment at this time.”

The incident, which went down December 19, was a day after DaBaby performed at the Shrine. DaBaby and crew left the hotel without further incident. Cops were not called. It’s not DaBaby’s first run-in with fans.

DaBaby is setting the record straight on why he pushed the hotel employee, and he says it’s because the guy was allegedly harassing him while he was in the company of his young daughter.

HOLLYWOOD (Page Six) — What a difference a year makes.

Lizzo was a rising new artist on Atlantic’s roster at last year’s Warner Music Group’s Grammy bash. But this go-round, the superstar headlined the party, with A-listers like Naomi Campbell, Big Freedia, Wiz Khalifa, Rob Gronkowski, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton waiting for the “Good as Hell” singer to hit the stage at the Hollywood Athletic Club on Thursday. Guests could smell Khalifa from a mile away as he entered smoking marijuana.

Nightlife connoisseur and photographer Jeremy Kost, known for his Polaroids of male model derrières, even dusted off his lens for the occasion.

“I never bring my camera to events like this. It’s like a once-in-a-lifetime thing. I am not leaving this spot,” a giddy Kost said as he […]
