LeAnn Rimes is having some trouble with her mouth-and not just when she botches performances on The X Factor! From what we’re hearing, Ms. Rimes has been having some major oral difficulties, leading the singer to sue her dentist! Keep reading for the details!
Not many people really enjoy going to the dentist, but for LeAnn Rimes, the experience has become traumatic. So much so, that she is feeling the need to sue her dentist for not only medical costs, but psychological issues as well!
LeAnn was seeing Dr. Duane C McKay, and appeared to have quite a bit of dental work done over a period of three years. What started as a simple job of veneers at the advice of Dr. McKay (To help with TMJ pain), turned into a whole mouth remodel. After complaining of pain from the veneers, Dr. McKay reportedly performed nine root canals (Including some emergency procedures), bone grafting, a temporary bridge and even physical therapy. In the lawsuit, LeAnn states she’s incurred a “Permanent cosmetic deficiency” which will lead to further work and surgeries down the road. She’s frequently tweeted about the numerous procedures she’s had done, including two surgeries while on tour-one in May and one in July.
the lawsuit claims that the work has affected LeAnn’s “ability to perform as an artist has been and will continue to significantly compromised until all re-treatment is completed,” and she’s seeking unspecified general damages and reimbursement for medical expenses and tacking on “emotional and psychiatric injuries”.
What do you think will happen in the lawsuit? Let us know in the comments!
