Kim Kardashian facing dentist bill

Kim Kardashian is facing legal action from a dentist over allegations the socialite failed to pay a bill from 10 years ago.

Craig Gordon reportedly obtained a court judgement against Kardashian and her ex-husband Damon Thomas in 2002 for procedures totalling more than $1,675, but he claims the sum was never paid.

He has now filed a lien to recover the debt, which has swelled to more than $3,320, from any money Kardashian makes in her divorce from sportsman Kris Humphries, according to TMZ.com.

The TV star was married to music producer Thomas from 2002 until 2004. She went on to marry Humphries last August (11) and filed for divorce just 72 days later.
