Gallagher Brothers Are Heading to Court

The Gallagher brothers have taken their increasingly bitter war of words to court.

Younger sibling Liam, former lead singer of the group who now fronts Beady Eye, issued a statement on Friday confirming he was suing songwriter and guitarist Noel for comments he made over why the band broke up in 2009.

Noel, 44, who made the remarks during a press conference in July at which he was launching his solo career, had no immediate comment to make on the lawsuit at London’s High Court, his spokesman said.

Liam said in his statement: “I have taken legal action against Noel Gallagher for statements he made during the Electric Cinema press conference on July 6 during which he claimed Oasis pulled out of the 2009 V Festival Chelmsford gig because I had a hangover.

“That is a lie and I want Oasis fans, and others who were at V, to know the truth.”

He went on to explain he was “gutted” to have had to pull out of the event, and that the real reason was laryngitis as diagnosed by a doctor and explained to Noel.
