David Lee Roth allergic to nuts? That's bananas!

Earlier this week, a Canadian paper ran interviews with two police officers who claimed the Van Halen star went into anaphylactic shock behind the wheel after eating nuts. (They said they then phoned paramedics, who rushed the singer to the hospital.)

But Roth insists it never happened.

"I was in Canada only from July first through the fourth for a performance at the Quebec City Summer Festival. I had no encounters or incidents with the police," he said in a statement released Thursday. "The only thing I'm allergic to is criticism."
