UPDATED: The feud between the veteran DJ's daughter Kerri and wife Jean flared up again on Sunday afternoon as Kerri tried to take her father to a hospital.

A spokesman for Casey Kasem's daughter says the ailing radio personality has been taken by ambulance to a hospital or medical facility in Washington state.

Danny Deraney told the Associated Press that Kerri Kasem accompanied her father when an ambulance took him Sunday afternoon to receive care. He didn't know where the 82-year-old entertainer went.

His condition is not known, but Kerri said in court Friday that her father is suffering from bedsores and lung and bladder infections. She also has said her father has a form of dementia.

Amid an ongoing dispute between Kerri and her stepmother, Jean, a Kitsap County judge ruled Friday that Kerri could have a doctor of her choosing examine her father.

The Kitsap County Sheriff's Office has said appropriate medical care has been provided.

A message left for Jean's representative wasn't immediately returned.

Casey Kasem and his wife have been staying with friends west of Seattle.

Although Kerri has been granted the right to have a doctor examine her father, the dispute between Kerri and Jean flared up Sunday afternoon, when Jean threw a pound of raw hamburger meat at Kerri, who had arrived with an ambulance to take her father to a hospital. According to NBC News Jean later said that her behavior was inspired by a King James verse.

"In the name of King David, I threw a piece of raw meat into the street in exchange for my husband to the wild rabid dogs," she said.

A video obtained by NBC News shows Jean lashing out at Kerri.
