Rob Lowe cancels appearance at the Straz Center in Tampa

This is *literally* the worst news we could have gotten this morning.

Actor Rob Lowe has canceled his upcoming speaking gig at the Straz Center in Tampa due to a "scheduling conflict," according to the venue.

The show, Stories I Only Tell My Friends, was scheduled for June 21, and was to feature the Parks and Recreation and St. Elmo's Fire star sharing behind-the-scenes anecdotes about his life in Hollywood, from his sex tape and infamous Oscars hosting gig to his roles in projects like The West Wing and The Outsiders.

Tickets purchased with a credit card will be automatically refunded. If you purchased by cash or check, your refund check is in the mail. (May we suggest reinvesting it in seats for fellow Parks and Rec star Nick Offerman in December?)
