Kris Humphries is out a lawyer. The NBA player’s divorce attorney, Marshall Waller, dropped Humphries as a client just before his Friday joint court appearance with estranged wife Kim Kardashian. According to documents obtained by TMZ, Waller says there has been an “irremediable breakdown of the attorney-client relationship.” The reality star asked a judge to order a trial to end her marriage as soon as possible and she got it. Humphries, who plays for the Brooklyn Nets, wanted the case to remain on hold until his season ends.
LeAnn Rimes isn’t smiling over her teeth issues. The country star has filed a lawsuit against her dentist, Dr. Duane C. McKay, whom she claims gave her bad veneers and crowns which led to “severe tooth pain, gum inflammation and chronic gum bleeding.”
Rimes says in the suit that since her procedures she has been forced to have nine root canals, bone grafting, a temporary bridge, physical therapy and suffered a “permanent cosmetic deficiency.” She is seeking unspecified general damages and money for medical expenses and “emotional and psychiatric injuries” and money for loss of wages. No alienation of affection from Eddie Cibrian, we hope.
