LeAnn Rimes Suing Dentist; Claims Botched Procedures Are Stalling Career
Somewhere in Beverly Hills, Brandi Glanville is sipping a Mojito and laughing her ass off…
LeAnn Rimes is reportedly suing her dentist over ten botched procedures that are apparently affecting her singing career.
Rimes, 30, has filed suit against Dr. Duane C. McKay, alleging the dentist put substandard veneers and crowns on her teeth that led to “severe tooth pain, gum inflammation and chronic gum bleeding.”
The star claims she subsequently underwent nine root canals, bone grafting, physical therapy and installation of a temporary bridge as a result of his treatment. LeAnn also points to “permanent cosmetic deficiency” and argues that her “ability to perform as an artist has been and will continue to be significantly compromised until all re-treatment is completed.” The singer was forced to cancel several performances due to the dental emergencies and is seeking an unspecified sum in damages for “loss of earnings and future earning capacity.”
Sounds like the latest crumb in a trail of bad karma for the former teen country starlet. Rimes spent 30 days in an in-patient treatment facility for anxiety last fall.
