Singer accepts his brother's apology and ends legal battle
Liam Gallagher has dropped his planned lawsuit against brother Noel after he apologized over his comments about the band’s cancellation of their headline set at V Festival in 2009.
It was reported on Friday (August 20) that the Beady Eye frontman had filed a lawsuit against his brother after his comments that he pulled out of V Festival due to a hangover, however after Noel apologised in an online webchat for his statement, he has now dropped the action.
A source told The Sun:
Liam had spoken to his mum Peggy and she was upset by the whole episode. That was playing on his mind then he had a moment of realisation that Noel wasn’t being vindictive – he was just being cheeky. It was an anger that had built up over two years because he was so angry Oasis was over.
In the cold light of day he realised his brother was actually being quite calm about it all, and decided a legal battle was a bad idea. Hopefully that will draw a line under it all and everyone can move on.
Liam‘s decision comes after Noel issued an apology during an online webchat with fans. He said of his comments:
Unfortunately there is truth in it. But you know, for the record it is a fact that he was diagnosed with laryngitis and it is a fact that he had a doctor’s note to prove it. But I’d just like to say though, if he gets offended by my opinions on such things then you know I apologise but it’s all getting very silly and a little bit out of hand and it’s not very cool.
