Oasis stars 'no longer speak to each other'
Relations between Oasis stars Liam and Noel Gallagher are now so bad they no longer speak, travel separately on tour and only see each other onstage, Liam claimed today.
Just days before Oasis headline the V Festival, the band's frontman said the pair last spoke during a row at an airport which left Noel in tears.
"He doesn't like me and I don't like him, that's it," Liam told NME.
"He hasn't told me what he thinks of anything this year. we've got nothing to say to each other at the moment."
Instead the Gallaghers have been exchanging insults via Twitter and blogs. This week Liam called his brother the "fool on the bill" after the guitarist was pictured on a night out, and accused him of looking like "he had got through to the next round of X Factor".
Noel recently complained that "What'siz'name" was "probably on his man period" during a gig at Camden's Roundhouse last month.
Liam said today that the pair now simply trade insults on the internet rather than face-to-face "to save the f****** tour imploding".
He said Noel wouldn't have the nerve to criticise him in person "because he's a f****** lightweight and he knows where he'd end up".
Liam continued: "We don't travel together, do we ... so I never really see him, the only time I see him is onstage and we're a little bit busy that time to be f****** scratching each other."
The brothers have been feuding for years but hostilities appear to have stepped up in recent years. In a recent interview Noel confessed that his two-year-old son Donovan has never even met his uncle.
Liam said the last conversation ended in a row. "I think it might have been about some f****** s*** support band he wanted to play with us and he didn't ask my permission. So we had a f****** ding-dong in the airport and I think he started crying then - that was it - doesn't travel with me anymore."
During the interview with NME, Liam referred to his brother as 'Parker' because of the songwriter's similarity to the chauffeur from 60s puppet TV series Thunderbirds.
And he said he was unsure about the future of the band after Noel had claimed that he would like a five-year hiatus.
"For the first time in my life I haven't got a f****** clue what's going on with Oasis, you know what I mean? It's pretty confusing but I'm not going to freak out about it."
Liam recently branched out into the fashion business, launching his own clothing label Pretty Green.
