LeAnn Rimes Sues Dentist, Claims Bad Dental Work Left Her Unable To Perform

LeAnn Rimes Sues Dentist, Claims Bad Dental Work Left Her Unable To Perform

LeAnn Rimes is suing her dentist, claiming that his shoddy work led to physical pain and a “permanent cosmetic deficiency.”

The 30-year-old singer filed a malpractice lawsuit against Dr. Duane McKay on Thursday, claiming work the dentist did over the last three years has impacted her career. The lawsuit, obtained by omg!, says that Rimes sues the dentist for work he did to alleviate pain from TMJ and to improve the singer’s appearance.

In the lawsuit against her dentist, Rimes claims that she’s had to go through nine root canals, bone grafting, a temporary bridge, and even physical therapy to deal with the poor work. She also claims that she’s been unable to sing and is seeking retribution for past and future earnings lost as a result of the work.

The lawsuit comes on top of what has already been a distressing year for LeAnn Rimes. A feud with Brandi Glanville, the ex-wife of LeAnn’s husband Eddie Cibrian, had brought to light some unsavory aspects that Rimes would likely have preferred to keep private. With a supposed tell-all book on the way for Glanville, Rimes said she was feeling “fragile” and afraid for what could be published.

Though the situation sounded distressing, Rimes showed no signs of it on Thursday as she showed off another, much happier part of her life. Possibly inspired by First Lady Michelle Obama, Rimes debuted a new haircut that showed off her bangs. The singer had a wide smile as she posted a picture of the new ‘do.

To the singer’s Twitter followers, the news that LeAnn Rimes sues her dentist is likely not a surprise. The singer has often aired her dental problems on the site, the Daily Mail noted.

    I LOVE the way that LeAnn smiles in the video for her song named "Something's Gotta Give" when she first meets the guy near the end. (smiles)

    God bless you and her always!

    P.S. If her dentist really did mess up in any way, may they NOT get away with it.

    God bless her? She had an affair with a married man while she was also married and continues to bad mouth the man's (now) ex-wife to this day! She is classless. I say Karma's a bitch.

    fixing her teeth isn't going to do anything for this classless B****. she needs to be going to see the a shrink. as for her music career? HA! she's a 1 hit wonder. they only reason she is still in the spot light is because she screwed a married man while she was married! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh isn't fame wonderful!

    Told her and told her not to try to give head for at least 24 hours after going to the dentist.

    Bone grafting would be a need brought on by deterioration wouldn't it? How is a dentist responsible, Are root canals the root cause of it? LOL I Love her concern for what the ex is going to be writing about, Character is what you do when no-ones watching and it doesn't matter, Getting famous doesn't give anybody the right to act ignorant!

  6. Gayle Gibson

    great to blame a dentist for her failing career.she has had bad dentistry for a while but still performed.is she that hard up for money?

  7. Billie Shelby

    No amount of dental work could improve her appearance. I've always found her rather horsey looking with squintly eyes. Beautiful voice….horrible to look at!

    Jacob Schilling There is definitely a lot of bad mouthing in the picture, but the majority of it does NOT come from LeAnn's side. As for what she did, if she asked the Lord to forgive her, and I believe that she has, she not only got his forgiveness, but the Lord took what she did wrong and threw it into the sea of forgetfulness because of him being the awesome and MERCIFUL God that he truly is no matter who doesn't like him being that way.

    God bless you and LeAnn always!!!

    P.S. LeAnn did say on the Entertainment Tonight show that she has apologized and that she does not condone what she did. If people choose not to forgive her, oh well, I pray that they ask the Lord to forgive them too because the act of holding a grudge is another thing that is against the word of the Lord.
