LeAnn Rimes is pissed, and this time it has nothing to do with her husband’s ex-wife and RHOBH star Brandi Glanville. The 30-year-old country singer is taking her dentist to court for messing up her chompers.
In court papers obtained by TMZ, Rimes is claiming her dentist, Dr. Duane C. McKay, has messed up her teeth horribly and has caused her to suffer major mouth pain. Over the last three years, Rimes says she’s gotten a ton of work done including multiple veneers and crows, all of which the dentist reportedly told her would help with her TMJ problem. He also said it would improve her looks.
The singer goes on to say that because of this, she’s had to deal with having nine root canals as well as bone grafting, a temporary bridge, and physical therapy. She insists in the lawsuit that she will have a “permanent cosmetic deficiency”, and that this whole ordeal has essentially been screwing up her career because it’s difficult for her to sing.
Rimes is seeking “unspecified damages for physical, emotional and psychiatric injuries” as well as compensation for past and future earnings she could’ve made.
Wow, what a mess. Putting Rimes’ seemingly melodramatic issues aside, to have to go through all of this because a dentist wanted to make some extra coin would be excruciating. Any dental work is hell, and any unnecessary dental work is even worse!
