Roth Puzzled By Allergic Reaction Story
Van Halen star David Lee Roth is puzzled about reports he suffered a near-fatal allergic reaction to nuts recently - because the incident didn't happen.
Two Canadian police officers claimed they helped to save the rocker's life last month (Jun08) after finding him suffering from anaphylactic shock in a car by the side of a highway in Ontario.
The Jump singer had reportedly suffered a severe allergic reaction to a nutty snack. One of the cops, Chris Thompson, told reporters he had no idea he was dealing with a rock star when he and his partner helped to calm Lee Roth down until paramedics arrived.
But Lee Roth insists the cops have the wrong guy. He tells TMZ.com, "I was in Canada only from July 1st through (to) the 4th for a performance at the Quebec City Summer Festival. I had no encounters or incidents with the police (and) the only thing I'm allergic to is criticism."
The rocker's representative confirms Lee Roth is not allergic to nuts. (KL/WNWCMZ/MJ)
