Liam Gallagher Sues Brother Over Oasis Breakup

Liam Gallagher is suing his brother and former Oasis bandmate Noel for disparaging comments made during the band’s messy breakup in 2009.

“I have taken legal action against Noel Gallagher for statements he made during the Electric Cinema press conference on July 6 during which he claimed Oasis pulled out of the 2009 V Festival Chelmsford gig because I had a hangover,” Liam said in a statement earlier today. “That is a lie and I want Oasis fans, and others who were at V, to know the truth.”

“Noel also falsely stated that the demise of Oasis followed a massive row in which he claimed I demanded to advertise my clothing range Pretty Green in the Oasis tour program,” Gallagher added. “The truth is there was no such discussion or row between us. There are many reasons why Oasis split. But it had nothing to do with my clothing range.”

Liam insists that the lawsuit is not about money, but rather about getting an apology from his brother. “I am used to being called all sort of things by Noel and I have in the past said things about him, but what Noel has alleged this time went way beyond rock-and-roll banter and questioned my professionalism.”

According to a representive for Noel Gallagher, the songwriter has no immediate comment regarding his brother’s lawsuit.
