There seems to be trouble around every corner these days for X Factor guest star, LeAnn Rimes. And it’s a whole mouthful this time! At least it doesn’t have anything to do with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Brandi Glanville! Instead, the country music singer is suing her dentist for botched dental work. Keep reading for more details.
According to TMZ, Rimes filed a malpractice lawsuit against her dentist claiming he messed up her mouth so bad it’s affecting her singing career. She claims she visited Dr. Duane C. McKay for multiple procedures including crowns and veneers over a three-year period. And while the dentist promised the work would improve her appearance and help alleviate TMJ related pain, Rimes claims it did just the opposite “causing tremendous pain and bleeding.”
In October, the pain was so bad Rimes tweeted, “I feel like I got hit in the right side of the face with a baseball bat.”
In the lawsuit, Rimes claims she had to undergo nine root canals, bone grafting, wear a temporary bridge, and suffer through physical therapy. As a result, she claims she will have a “permanent cosmetic deficiency.” In addition, she claims the dental work performed by Dr. McKay was so bad it has messed up her singing career by hindering her ability to perform. Could this have been the reason Rimes totally botched her duet with Carly Rose Sonenclar on The X Factor?
While we’re uncertain how much money Rimes is seeking in the malpractice lawsuit, we’re sure it’s a very large sum considering she’s suing for physical, emotional, and psychiatric injuries as well as damages for loss of earnings both past and future.
