(Newser) – Celebrity lawsuits generally aren't pleasant, but this one is tough to top: LeAnn Rimes has sued her dentist, claiming that he did such lousy work over the last three years that he caused "permanent cosmetic deficiency" and messed up her career, reports TMZ. The malpractice suit mentions nine root canals, bone grafting, a temporary bridge, physical therapy, and severe pain. She wants unspecified damages, including lost earnings. ABC notes that in October, she wrote that she was trying recover from a "dental nightmare." (She had other tabloid fodder to deal with, too.)

For what ever reason she has, she is obviously upset enough to go after her dentist and she shoud just be well wished in all she does in her life! I signed up just now to be able to comment on this site because of some of the sheer ignorance I saw posted about people in general from the South. @ Dr--zy...I can tell from your lack of class & compassion you for one, are "not" from the South! In typical "Southern" tradition I will pray that you find peace from your sharp tongue & darkened heart I will also pray that you soon be blessed with the ability to educate yourself on the people of the "Deep South". I think if this were to become a blessing that you embrace that you would have no choice but to acknowledge the fact that some of the World's most beautiful, intellgent, well educated & well kept people are right here from The Deep South! I am willing to begin your education right here & now for your blessing to unfold for you...I, my siblings,my parents, my children and Grandcildren have all always found it common place to brush at least twice a day & floss our teeth each time as well ,just like "some" of the Northerners do! So there you have it, the beginning of your new found knowledge of the "Southern" people. With my blessings I bid you a good day!
