The star serves a writ on The People...

LIAM GALLAGHER is suing the PEOPLE newspaper over reports last weekend (October 6) that he cheated on fiancée NICOLE APPLETON with an Italian fan.

The Oasis frontman served the writ on the paper over its front page lead with headline: ‘Cheat Liam beds Nicole lookalike’.

“He’s maintaining he did not sleep with the girl in question and he’s never been unfaithful to Nicole,” an Oasis spokesperson said.

A spokesman for Trinity Mirror, publisher of the People, confirmed papers had been received.
