LON­DON — A photo of re­al­ity TV star Kim Kar­dashian kiss­ing rap­per Kanye West on their wed­ding day has bro­ken the record for the most likes on In­sta­gram. A Euro­pean spokesper­son for the photo-shar­ing site said Fri­day the pic­ture, shared from Kar­dashian’s ac­count, re­ceived 1.99 mil­lion likes, be­com­ing the most pop­u­lar post on the site so far. (See it at http://in­sta­gram. com/p/ogSSO6uS9C/.) The wed­ding snap has over­taken a pho­to­graph shared by pop star Justin Bieber posted five months ago, show­ing ac­tress Se­lena Gomez em­brac­ing him, which re­ceived 1.83 mil­lion likes. Kar­dashian and West got mar­ried on Satur­day in a pri­vate cer­e­mony at Belvedere Fort in Florence. PORT OR­CHARD, Wash. — The wife of ail­ing ra­dio per­son­al­ity Casey Kasem is ex­pected to ap­pear in court Fri­day in Wash­ing­ton state as part of an on­go­ing dis­pute with a step­daugh­ter who has been given author­ity to de­ter­mine whether her fa­ther is re­ceiv­ing ad­e­quate med­i­cal care. The 82-year-old Kasem and his wife, Jean, have been stay­ing with fam­ily friends in Kit­sap County, west of Seat­tle. Sher­iff’s of­fi­cers this week de­liv­ered documents to Jean Kasem warn­ing that her fail­ure to ap­pear in Kit­sap County court could lead to a war­rant for her ar­rest. A spokesman for Kerri Kasem has said she has a Wash­ing­ton court or­der that al­lows her to see her fa­ther. Kerri Kasem has said in court fil­ings that her fa­ther suf­fers from a form of de­men­tia called Lewy Body Dis­ease. Ear­lier this month Los Angeles Su­pe­rior Court judge Daniel S. Mur­phy or­dered Jean Kasem to com­ply with court or­ders al­low­ing doc­tors to eval­u­ate her hus­band, and to let his daugh­ter Kerri see him. He also or­dered Jean Kasem to sur­ren­der her hus­band’s pass­port and tem­po­rar­ily sus­pended her pow­ers to de­ter­mine her hus­band’s med­i­cal care. In mid-May, Mur­phy ex­pressed con­cerns about Kasem’s where­abouts and safety amid a dis­pute be­tween his wife and chil­dren from an­other mar­riage. The Kit­sap County Sher­iff’s Of­fice tracked him down the next day. A sher­iff’s spokesman said those at the home, in­clud­ing Jean Kasem, told au­thor­i­ties that ap­pro­pri­ate med­i­cal care was be­ing pro­vided. Casey Kasem gained fame with his ra­dio mu­sic count­down shows, Amer­i­can Top 40 and Casey’s Top 40, and was the voice of Shaggy in the cartoon Scooby Doo.
