Good news for LeAnn Rimes haters! The country singer turned tabloid celebrity is suing her dentist for "compromising" her career. This lawsuit is a gift to those Internet commenters who pass time by deriding her as a "cheating whore" who is "so dumb."

The Grammy winner is going after the dentist who gave her an emergency root canal last July for inflicting a "cosmetic deficiency" on her. According to Us Weekly, the lawsuit claims her "ability to perform as an artist has been and will continue to be significantly compromised until all re-treatment is complete." The court papers also revealed Rimes had eight other root canals since the first one, all of which caused her "emotional and psychiatric injuries."

While I'm neither a lawyer nor a dentist, I'm going out on a limb here and say Rimes teeth don't look particularly bad. They're even, white and most importantly, they're not missing (which Danny Brown certainly can't say for himself). 

But maybe it's the pain caused by those root canals that's affecting her career. That would certainly go a long way toward explaining her bizarre, woozy appearance on The X Factor finale, and why she refused to show any teeth while posing for her school portrait.
