Liam Gallagher launches libel action against brother Noel
Liam Gallagher is taking legal action against his brother Noel on the grounds of libel, it has emerged.
According to the Sun, the rock star has issued a High Court writ to his sibling following Noel's remarks regarding the reasons behind their former band Oasis split up in 2009.
The group - who shot to worldwide fame in 1994 following the release of debut album Definitely Maybe - disbanded due to a culmination of arguments and disputes between frontman Liam and guitarist/vocalist Noel.
Recently, the latter claimed Liam had pulled out of a headline gig at the V Festival as he was hungover, but the musician insists the withdrawal was because of medical reasons.
Within the High Court document, Liam said his brother's claims are a "lie".
"I want Oasis fans to know the truth ... I was gutted when I couldn't play the gig because I didn't want to let the fans down," he added.
