Liam Gallagher is suing his brother, and former Oasis bandmate, Noel over comments the guitarist made at a press conference in July, according to Reuters. In a statement, Liam announced, that he has “taken legal action against Noel Gallagher for statements he made during the Electric Cinema press conference on July 6 during which he claimed Oasis pulled out of the 2009 V Festival Chelmsford gig because I had a hangover. That is a lie and I want Oasis fans, and others who were at V, to know the truth.” The singer claims that he couldn’t perform the show because he had laryngitis.

Noel and Liam’s relationship has long featured a degree of acrimony. Oasis split up two years ago following an argument which took place between the siblings prior to a show in Paris, France.
