Not keeping up: Kris, Bruce split
Which “Keeping up with the Kardashians” couple might be on the rocks always makes for good tabloid fodder, but one couple is ready to say they’re over – and have been for a while.
Kris and Bruce Jenner have confirmed they separated a year ago, after 22 years together.
In an interview with US magazine hitting newsstands Friday, Kris Jenner, 57, said their scenes together on the show have been genuine and there’s no animosity between them. She said they’re committed to their family.
Her former Olympic champion husband said they’ll always love and respect each other.
They say no divorce papers have been filed and that Bruce, 63, will continue to appear on the family’s reality show.
The admission explains why in recent episodes, Bruce Jenner moved out to his own beach house, saying he needed more space.
Kasem kids seek control of his care
The three adult children of radio host Casey Kasem have filed a legal petition to gain control of his health care.
The filing said Kasem is suffering from advanced Parkinson’s disease and is being isolated from his children, friends and family members by his wife.
The petition for conservatorship filed Monday brought a long-running family feud into the courts. The applicants, Julie, Kerri and Mike Kasem, contend that Kasem’s wife, Jean, refuses to tell them the name of their father’s primary care physician and they are unable to check on his condition.
Julie Kasem, who has a master’s degree in medicine, and her husband, Dr. Jamil Aboulhosn, presented papers signed by her father in 2007 giving them power of attorney over his health care in the event he was unable to make such decisions himself.
The 81-year-old Kasem, who gained fame with his radio music countdown shows, “American Top 40” and “Casey’s Top 40,” was also the voice of Shaggy in the cartoon “Scooby Doo.”
The court petition said he may have early onset Parkinson’s dementia.
The filing asks that Jean Kasem allow the Kasem family to visit and carry out the directives of the 2007 health care authorization.
