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.)
