Hip-hop star Kelis was forced to cancel a concert earlier this month (03SEP04), when she suffered an allergic reaction to nuts.

The MILKSHAKE singer was rushed to hospital after choking in a restaurant in Zurich, Switzerland.

Kelis had forgotten to tell chefs about her allergy.

An insider says, "Her face went red and puffy and she started spluttering for air.

"It's dreadful to think what could have happened - people can be killed by bad reactions to nuts."
