Liam Gallagher appeared in a New York court yesterday (May 5) for a hearing over his alleged 'love child'.

The Beady Eye singer flew to the US in an attempt to finalise child support payments for the daughter he fathered with journalist Liza Ghorbani.

According to the Sun, it was revealed during the hearing at New York County Court that Gallagher has agreed to a temporary financial support arrangement, but a permanent deal is still to be finalised.

Justice Laura Drager told both parties to continue negotiating after they agreed to exchange financial information, stating: "Hopefully it will produce a settlement." According to reports, Gallagher greeted Ghorbani with a smile as they entered the courtroom and instructed her to go first, telling her "After you", but she ignored his approach.

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, Gemma, in January 2013.

The former Oasis frontman was living with wife Nicole Appleton, the mother of his 12-year-old son Gene, when news of Ghorbani's claims were revealed. The couple have subsequently split, and Ghorbani previously filed a £2 million lawsuit against the singer for child support.
