Liam Gallagher sues The New York Post over 'love child' claim

Thursday 18 July 2013
Liam Gallagher is suing a US newspaper for reporting that he may have fathered a child during a one-night stand.
The New York Post claimed an unnamed woman gave birth to a daughter less than a year ago and is now suing the former Oasis singer in New York for paternity costs of up to $3 million (£2 million) in Manhattan Family Court.
The "mystery woman" is described as a journalist in her thirties who “specialises in interviewing celebrities”. The case is said to be listed as "Anonymous vs Anonymous".
The Britpop star’s spokesman said “We are not going to comment on gossip” but did confirm that Gallagher’s lawyers are taking legal action against the Post for the story.
Gallagher, 40, has three children, and is married to former All Saints singer Nicole Appleton.
