Liam Gallagher drops lawsuit against Noel Gallagher

Singer accepts his brother's apology and ends legal battle

Video: The People Vs Noel Gallagher - Web Chat

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.



It continues:

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.
