Liam & Noel’s mum tells them to ‘sort it out’

Liam and Noel Gallagher’s mother Peggy distraught over legal battle between brothers

While their temperamental relationship may have played out like a living soap opera for fans, is has been a stark reality for their mother.

But now Peggy Gallagher has told sons Liam and Noel to ‘sort it out themselves’ after the pair became embroiled in a bitter legal battle.

The former bandmates, worth a cool £63million combined, have always been more famous for offstage antics than their onstage performances.

And for those wondering whose fault it really is why Noel left the band in 2009, a 14 page writ lodged at the High Court charting the end of the band, might give you a clue.

Well done: Noel Gallagher, pictured following a soundcheck yesterday, has beaten Matt Cardle to number one with his debut album, High Flying BirdsIn the explosive documents, Noel, 44, reveals the disintegration of the group from its glory years in the early nineties to today.

The Daily Mirror reported Noel’s version of events given in a legal document in response to his brother’s libel action.

When quizzed at her Manchester home over whether she was upset, Peggy simply said ‘yes’.

Noel claimed his brother left abusive voicemail messages on his wife Sara MacDonald’s phone, tried to attack him with his guitar and disrupted gigs after drinking too much.

The legal documents also describe how Noel regarded his brother as ‘spiteful and childish’ for mocking him onstage.

Since Oasis split in 2009 the brothers have been fighting it out professionally and personally with very public spats.

This court case originated after Noel claimed Liam missed the 2009 V Festival gig in Chelmsford because he was hungover.

Even though Noel apologised, Liam has launched a libel action against him which is ongoing.

In the papers filed in his defence, lodged on November 1, Noel makes a string of allegations against his younger brother.

He claims before he quit the band in August 2009, the brothers were not talking after Noel refused to allow ‘free advertising’ for Liam’s clothing range Pretty Green in the band’s promotional material.

Reports say Noel said he would allow free advertising ‘over his dead body’

This spelled the end for the band with Liam starting to wind his brother up and dedicate songs to Pretty Green staff onstage.

Noel claims it was this ‘spiteful and childish’ nature which led him to leave the band he started with his brother.

His lawyers detail 12 times from 1994 to 2005 where Liam allegedly ‘disrupted’ gigs by storming out, being drunk or getting into fights.

But Noel has scored a point against brother Liam, shooting to the top of the Official Charts with his first solo album in October.

The songwriter flew into number one with his aptly-named debut release Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.

Brother Liam’s post-Oasis band Beady Eye peaked only at number three when they released Different Gear, Still Speeding last year.

Last night a spokesman for Liam said: ‘After Noel apologised the matter is now in the hands of lawyers.’

Noel declined to comment.
