Celebrity journalist Liza Ghorbani has been revealed as the mother of the alleged 'secret love child' of Beady Eye singer Liam Gallagher.

The New York Post has claimed that Ghorbani, a journalist for publications including Elle and The Wall Street Journal, had a fling with the singer after she interviewed him for the New York Times in 2010 and subsequently gave birth to a daughter, Emma, in January of this year.

A source also told the paper that Gallagher had admitted to fathering the child in an email to Ghorbani, when he claimed that the seven-month-old baby was beautiful because she had been blessed with "rock star genes".

The source added: "Liza met Liam when she interviewed him for the Times and they began an affair. It continued until around three months after the birth of the child. He ended the relationship when she told him she was suing him for child support.

"Liza isn’t after millions of dollars, she is simply seeking child support and no amount has yet been set. If they don’t settle on a figure, the case will go to a public trial, like the one recently between Linda Evangelista and Francois-Henri Pinault."

It was revealed yesterday that Gallagher is taking legal action against the newspaper over the allegations. A spokesperson for the singer said: "Liam Gallagher's lawyers are taking legal action against New York Post – further to that we don't comment on gossip such as this."

Liam Gallagher already has three children – 12-year-old Gene from his current marriage to former All Saints singer Nicole Appleton and 13-year-old Lennon from his previous marriage with actress Patsy Kensit. He also has a daughter, 15-year-old Molly, with Lisa Moorish.

Beady Eye are due to tour the UK later this year. They will play eight dates, kicking off in Glasgow on November 10 and ending on November 21 with a show at London's Hammersmith Apollo. In between, there will be stops in Leeds, Newcastle, Wolverhampton, Portsmouth and two Manchester dates at the Academy on November 15 and 16.
