If you've been wondering what the heck happened to LeAnn Rimes and why she has not come out with a new song, this might help explain. Rimes, is suing her dentist for "career troubles." The country singer claims her dentist's bad work has caused her career to suffer. Rimes claims the dentist's bad work has been the reason her career has been stalled for the past three years. She is seeking compensation for "loss of earnings and future earning capacity," also claiming the tooth troubles have caused physical, mental, and emotional injuries over a three-year period of treatment, according to court documents.

She claims the dental injuries and negligence from her dentist have caused "severe tooth pain, gum inflammation and chronic gum bleeding." She wrote on her website late last year, "I've been living in a dental nightmare for 10 months. I'm getting back on track though, I hope. I've had too many detours this year due to dental issues."

Well, we hope everything in LeAnn's dental department gets better quickly. Who knows, maybe her dentist is friends with LeAnn's husband's ex-wife, Brandi Glanville??
