Noel Gallagher’s daughter Anaïs has blamed her parents’ lifestyles for people’s preconceptions of her.

The 20-year-old daughter of Meg Mathews and the Oasis star told The Mirror she doesn’t drink because of her parents.

"‘I’ve not got apartments that I’ve tried to rent because of [people’s assumptions],” she said.

"The landlords are thinking I’m going to have mad ones every night. My ex-boyfriend’s family were like, ‘Does she drink a lot? Does she do drugs?'”

The model added: "I don’t drink. Having parents who’ve been a bit crazy made me go the opposite way."

Mathews was married to Gallagher between 1997 and 2001. Earlier this year, she revealed she would regularly spend up to £4,000 a night on drugs when she was in a relationship with the musician.

Gallagher also recently revealed that taking cocaine every night over a four-year period in the Nineties caused him to suffer from panic attacks.
