David Lee Roth Denies Nuts Story

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."

When Ontario Provincial Police pulled over a driver "wearing a little silk scarf and flashy clothing," they didn't know he was Van Halen rocker David Lee Roth.

But they did know that the man – who they had stopped for speeding – was in the midst of a medical emergency. Roth, 53, was taken to a local hospital, where we was treated for a severe allergic reaction to nuts, reported the Toronto Sun.

Van Halen played in Quebec City on July 3 as part of the city's 400th anniversary celebration, according to local media reports.
