Tragic U.S. broadcaster Casey Kasem's closest friends and family members have petitioned officials in Norway to deny his widow's request to bury him there.

The American Dj passed away in June (14), and two months after his death, his wife Jean, who was given control of the star's remains, has opted to lay him to rest in Norway.

The burial is being contested as Kasem's kids insist their dad wanted to be laid to rest in California.

Their letter to Norwegian officials reads: "As beautiful as your country is, our father has never spoken of any desire to be buried in Norway either to us or to his friends.

"In fact, it was the opposite. Casey wanted to be buried in his hometown of Los Angeles, California - his home of over 53 years."

They suggest that Jean Kasem wants to bury her late husband in Norway "because of the ongoing investigation from local authorities of criminal elder abuse".

Earlier this month (Aug14), Jean sent a letter to officials in the Norwegian government requesting to have her husband buried there because of her heritage and desire to move to the country at the end of the year, but even members of her family are contesting her plans - her nephew Herbert Thompson insists she is not of Norwegian descent.

He says, "As far as we know, we are English, German and Native American. We have never ever heard anyone speak of Norway or Norwegian for that matter in our house. We don't have an ounce of Norwegian blood to our knowledge."
