For The Hollywood ReporterTim Appelo writes: Jean Kasem, the wife of ailing DJ Casey Kasem, filed a declaration in court June 9 accusing Casey Kasem’s daughter Kerri Kasem of working in porn and scheming to give her father’s fortune (estimated at $80 million) to Scientology.

“In addition to her conversion to Scientology, Kerri and Casey also had a falling-out over Kerri’s involvement in soft-core pornography,” declared Jean Kasem. “Kerri has, for a number of years, made a living doing nude or scantily clad modeling. While I will not now share the seedy and demeaning pictures that Kerri posed for to receive money, a simple Internet search under ‘Kerri Kasem nude’ will reveal pornographic photo after photo of Kerri, either nude or scantily clad, and many photos of Kerri engaging in sex acts.… Her true motive is to get back at her father and to be appointed to a position of influence over him where she can alter his estate plan and have his money go to her and her church of Scientology.”

Kerri Kasem denies those claims.

“My dad is very proud of me and we have an extremely close relationship,” Kerri Kasem tells The Hollywood Reporter. “No, I am not giving my dad’s fortune to Scientology.” She did not comment on whether she is a Scientologist. Her spokesman, Danny Deraney, says, “There’s a $2 million trust for Kerri, her brother and sister — and Liberty, Jeannie’s daughter, is in it, too. So they all get maybe $500,000. Kerri has a job — she’s a radio host. Go to Kerri’s house, she’s not living an extravagant lifestyle.”
