From the outside, it seemed like radio host Casey Kasem had it all: fame, fortune, a beautiful wife and children. Outward appearances projected the perfect family life, but behind the scenes, relationships between the star’s new wife and his now-teenage children from his first marriage were going downhill, fast.
During his final days, his health and family life began to fail, but one thing that didn’t decline? His massive bank account.
“As a result of his significant accomplishments, he had amassed an estimated $80 million estate,” says attorney Danielle Mayoras in REELZ’s new docuseries, Casey Kasem: Fortune Fight.
Kasem’s immense fortune would later set the stage for a nasty family battle that no one could ever win, and which would leave the already ill 81-year-old completely devastated before his tragic death.
Casey Kasem: Fortune Fight airs Thursday, February 7 at 9 ET / PT on REELZ.
