Liam Gallagher and Nicole Appleton granted 'quickie' divorce
A decision is reached in 68 seconds after Gallagher admits to adultery
As Gallagher admitted adultery with US journalist Liza Ghorbani, the hearing at the Principal Registry of the High Court in London took just 68 seconds, according Daily Mail. Neither party was in attendance.
The case appeared as Appleton N M v Gallagher L J P in a list of 12 undefended cases heard by Judge Anne Aitken.
In court papers, it was revealed that Gallagher had admitted adultery to Appleton prior to the story appearing in newspapers. She said she found it "intolerable" to live with him following the deceit. Gallagher replied "yes" to the question of whether he committed adultery, and said he did not intend to defend her petition. He agreed to pay his wife's "reasonable costs".
The couple married in London in 2008 and have a 12-year-old son, Gene, together. It was reported in July 2013 that Gallagher impregnated US journalist Ghorbani in 2010.
