Liam: Noel is 'lying' in his version of Oasis split

Tuesday July 12, 2011

Liam Gallagher has disputed his brother's version of how Oasis split and branded Noel "a liar".

Just days ago Noel broke his silence on why he quit the group. He said it escalated from a row about Liam wanting a free advert in the tour programme for his clothing brand.

But in an interview with Radio 1, singer Liam said: "In my opinion - he's a control freak. He's making up lies to get brownie points."

Noel claimed that Liam had failed to turn up to an Oasis show at the V Festival in 2009 because he had a hangover, but blamed a bout of laryngitis for the no-show.

Relations plummeted and Noel quit the line-up a week later just moments before a gig in Paris.

But Liam stuck by the original story in an interview with Radio 1's Edith Bowman. He said: "I got diagnosed with laryngitis for the V Festival - I wasn't hung-over.

"I do gigs when I've been hung-over. I'm a big boy. I'm not going to cancel a gig because I've got a headache."

Noel said last week that his brother - with whom he has had a rocky relationship for many years - had wanted a free ad for his clothes range Pretty Green.

But Liam has hit back, responding: "I have never, ever had a conversation with him about Pretty Green."
