Liam Gallagher still threatening to sue Noel Gallagher over Oasis split ‘porkies’

Beady Eye man denies reports that legal wrangle is finished

Liam Gallagher has reiterated his threat to sue his brother Noel over remarks the guitarist made about Oasis‘ 2009 split.

A report in The Sun last week (August 24) suggested that the legal wrangle was now done and dusted, with a ‘source’ claiming that the upset caused to siblings’ mum Peggy led Liam to have a “moment of realisation”.

However, speaking about the lawsuit to BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat, Liam declared: “It’s not over yet.”


He continued:

There are a few things which need to be sorted out. I didn’t want this to happen. It’s not nice suing your family but like I said, he was telling porkies for the sake of his mates and journalists to get a wise crack on me.

Liam added:

If he listens to his lawyers and does the right thing then it’ll be well and truly over. I never wanted it to happen but it has to happen.

The singer announced plans to sue Noel ten days ago over his “lies” about the reasons Oasis cancelled a planned headline slot at V Festival’s Chelmsford site in 2009.

During a press conference to launch his new solo project Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds the guitarist claimed Liam had a hangover, while the frontman has always maintained laryngitis was the reason why he pulled out of the show.

Noel subsequently apologised for his part in the spat during an online webchat with fans last week, which you can view by scrolling down and clicking below. He admitted that Liam had a doctor’s note to prove his laryngitis claims, but added that the feud was getting “very silly and a little bit out of hand”.

Meanwhile, Beady Eye made their debut at the Reading And Leeds Festivals over the weekend (26 and 27). Liam couldn’t resist having a pop at Noel during the band’s slot on the Berkshire leg of the event, quipping that his brother was playing a “fucking acoustic guitar” elsewhere on the site.
