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."

SKEWERED: Don't look for a guest appearance from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (a.k.a. Sarah Michelle Gellar) during the final episode of the WB series "Angel," airing May 19, TV Guide Online reports. Gellar, who initially was slated to appear in the next-to-last episode of "Angel," was unavailable when it came time to shoot the story, series producer Joss Whedon said. And, despite the relationship between Angel, Buffy and the character Spike, the show's creators did not want the appearance of Buffy to overshadow the regular characters on "Angel."
