Liam Gallagher fathered a mystery love child with NY woman, not Chris Martin

Over the weekend, Bedhead sent around a link to a blind item/gossip story in The Sun about an unnamed “British rock star” and his secret American love child – you can read The Sun story here. It was a pretty juicy story, and the most obvious suspect was Chris Martin. That’s who Bedhead guessed and that’s who Michael K also theorized. The basic gist of the story was that the married British rock star was trying to keep everything on the downlow so his wife wouldn’t find out, and that the mother of this love child was threatening to tell his wife if the rock star didn’t pay up. Allegedly, the rock star “was spending thousands on lawyers to negotiate with the mother to keep it quiet… The mum — a pretty writer in her 30s — is refusing to speak out while she pursues the singer for a financial settlement.” Well, tell me if you think this is the big reveal:

Former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher is being sued for millions in a New York court by a woman who accuses him of fathering a secret love child with her, sources exclusively told Page Six.

The unidentified woman, who is in her 30s and specializes in interviewing celebrities, claims she had an affair with the rocker and gave birth to a daughter who is just under a year old. Gallagher’s response to the suit was not immediately known.

The mother is suing Gallagher in Manhattan Family Court for a reported $3 million. Both parties have tried so hard to keep this a secret; a court hearing on Friday before Magistrate Matthew Troy was listed under “Anonymous v. Anonymous.” The case was adjourned until later this month.

Gallagher, 40, now frontman for the band Beady Eye, has been married to Canadian singer and actress Nicole Appleton since 2008. He already has three children.

The Sun newspaper on Sunday reported that a married British rock star “is desperately trying to keep his US love child a secret — fearing his wife will dump him.”

The newspaper didn’t name the alleged father “for legal reasons,” but multiple sources have since told Page Six that the “Wonderwall” singer is currently being sued for paternity in the Manhattan court.

The newspaper reports that the woman has requested a $3 million payout. The Sun says the mother is considering undergoing DNA tests to prove her case.

Top Manhattan divorce attorneys Raoul Felder, representing Gallagher, and Bill Beslow, for the unidentified woman, both declined to comment last night, citing the confidential nature of the case. An agent for Gallagher didn’t get back to us.

Ironically, Gallagher once said he wanted to move his entire family to New York once his children had finished school, and last year he bought a $2.5 million condo in the iconic Essex House at 160 Central Park South.

Wait, THAT is the “major” money that the mother is asking for? Granted, I don’t know that much about Liam Gallagher’s finances, but I suspect that he could easily pay the mother $3 million and it wouldn’t hurt his bank account at all. In this kind of situation – where you want to keep everything hush-hush so your wife doesn’t find out – it’s best just to pay the mother of your love child. And really, $3 million isn’t THAT much in the grand scheme of celebrity paternity scandals. Ask Linda Evangelista!

I bet Gwyneth Paltrow is breathing a sigh of relief today. There’s no doubt in my mind that Chris Martin has fooled around on Goop, but don’t you think he would tell her if he fathered a love child? I doubt she would dump him over that either.

    Why do these people get married when they can’t keep in their pants?

  2. JL says:

    Goop would be fine with a love child as long as it was organically conceived in the most natural of ways.

    One set of kids could be apples and the other oranges.

  3. DanaG says:

    I wonder how much money he would have left by now? Oasis haven’t had a hit in years and I’m not sure if this is his second marriage or first.

    • Rhea says:

      His first wife was Patsy Kensit. Nicole is the second one. But it’s not the first time he’s cheating and fathered a child from that. If I’m not mistaken his first wife divorced him because of a situation like this.

    • Apples says:

      Who are all these people willingly having casual sex without a condom?! Even if they’re foolishly not worried about AIDS, what about Herpes which is incurable? Yuck.

      • gg says:

        “In the general population, one-fifth of women and 11.5% of men are infected.”

        So if they’re having unprotected sex, I doubt they’re worried about that – they may already have it. I’d be far more worried about the deadly stuff.

        And this guy is one of the most vile, unappreciative, conceited, narcissist thugs in the world.

    • SageM says:

      He has a new band called Beady Eye. His brother owns the rights to the Oasis name. BE played a set at Glastonbury a few weeks back. They’re quite popular I would say.

    • Gabriella says:

      As an Oasis fan, I can say they’re probably better financially then most of the HW stars we talk about here. They’ve had more hits then you imagine, they have a pretty strong and loyal fan base around the world and they’ve sold out arenas up until the day they split in 2009. Considering they’ve been making big money since 1994, just do the math…

      • Bridget says:

        They had big hits in the UK, but I thought they had a hard time keeping it togwther to actually tour. Its not like they’ve been consistently touring since ’94. Plus he’s got child support for 2 other women, and I’ve always thought that Liam blew through his money for a long time. I would bet that $3 million is a lot cash for him, and part of the challenge is whether or not he can keep himself together to continue touring. He’s a pretty epic dick.

      • Gabriella says:

        True. He’s got that Pretty Green clothing line too, but I’m not too sure if it’s giving him much money. I don’t care, really, I agree he’s a dickhead. I’ve always been Team Noel.

  4. Alexis says:

    Liam also had a chick by a woman who is not his wife maybe a week after he got married to his current wife. I mean I am not one to judge I’d people want open relationships but he should consider using protection or tying his tubes!

  5. fabgrrl says:

    Box of condoms: $5
    Keeping your extra-marital affairs secret: priceless

  6. Ann says:

    I’d totally dump any a**hole who’d have unprotected sex outside of a relationship.

  7. Turtle Dove says:

    Damn. It would have been Gooptastic is it was Henny-Gwennie and Chris. That blind really made it sound like Goop though.

    I say non-scandal. Liam is hardly clean cut.

  8. LAK says:

    i’d forgotten Liam Gallagher was a rock star.

    I didn’t think he had/made as much money as his brother Noel who was the principal songwriter for Oasis.

    I did think it was Chris Martin to when i read the blind yesterday. never thought of Liam.

    I always rag on the implied assumption that contraception is more a man’s responsibility ie ‘he should wrap it up’ BUT in this case, if this is true, i can believe that Liam doesn’t ‘wrap it up’ seeing that he had a baby within a week or month of his first marriage.

  9. Tanguerita says:

    I really hoped it was Chris Martin. Not sure what it says about me…

  10. Tapioca says:

    Oooh! I loved Oasis as a teen!

    I believe Liam actually fathered his first child about a fortnight after marrying the mother of his second! He then knocked up his current wife around the time he was divorcing the first.

    Incidentally, the mother of his second (Patsy Kensit – she was drowned by the bad guys in Lethal Weapon 2) had already been married to two lead singers from rock bands before him and then proceeded to marry and divorce another rocker a couple of years ago.

    Apparently no-one learns from their mistakes anymore…

  11. T.Fanty says:

    Liam Gallagher is *such* a twat. He deserves any crap that comes his way.

  12. Aagje says:

    That’s what you get for being an entitled asshole. Have fun paying up!

  13. Marjalane says:

    I really hate therm “love child”. It sounds so 60′s and sad.

  14. Tulip says:

    He does need to take responsibility for the kid, absolutely. The cynic in me says that I should change my career path and not just have kids, but also get a damn good payout as well.

    “…specializes in interviewing celebrities”. Um, yeah, that description is not helping this woman, she sounds like an opportunist, they should’ve stuck with “journalist”.

  15. Gia says:

    I had doubt about it being CM. The guy doesn’t exactly scream sexual energy…I mean, he was a virgin well into his twenties. I doubt puts sex on a pedestal and would risk his marriage. He just doesn’t seem the type. As for this Liam guy…who cares about an Oasis singer anymore??? He’s hardly on he radio anymore. Poorly written blind :(

  16. Sisi says:

    How odd, wouldn’t the legal cost exceed that 3 million?

  17. grabbyhands says:

    I admit, I’m a little let down. I mean, who really gives a sh** about Oasis or either of the Gallagher brothers anymore? Besides themselves, I mean.

  18. mslewis says:

    I read the blind yesterday and I was about the only commenter who said it was NOT Chris Martin. I just didn’t think he would have sex without protection and possibly give Gwynnie a social disease. I’m not saying he doesn’t cheat but I think he’s too smart to knock up someone. I don’t think Gwynnie cares if he cheats as long as he doesn’t embarrass her with a love child. Glad I have been proven right.

    • Mayday says:

      I didn’t have a guess but I felt like it was in some ways way too obviously pointing to Chris Martin and that made me think it WASN’T him. I never would have guessed liam tho

    • Another Ann says:

      It’s why people have to be really careful about assuming who the answer to a blind item is. I’ve seen lots of people say “but I read that blind item” and they assume that the common guess is correct. Very often, it isn’t.

      That and the fact that a number of blind item sites make up crap and repeat items from other sites that make up crap…

      • mercy says:

        +1000. Most of the blinds read like exaggerated and embellished versions of tabloid stories, many of which were probably never true in the first place, or made up based on common assumptions. Or they’re about people no one really gives a care about anymore and are quickly revealed, like this one.

        Chris Martin isn’t that stupid and he doesn’t have a drinking problem. Can’t say the same about Liam Gallagher. This is his wife’s opportunity to leave and take a chunk of what’s left of his fortune.

    • Mairead says:

      Also I wonder on which universe Martin is a “rocker”.

  19. Malificent says:

    I’m so relieved to know that Liam Gallagher fathered a love child with a mystery New York woman, and not with Chris Martin. I think Chris would have to do a lot of ‘splanin’ to Goop if he was capable of having a child with Liam.

  20. Sarah says:

    Is he the good or bad Gallagher?

  21. Paloma says:

    Guess it’s not a secret anymore.

  22. London lady says:

    This woman has to be a gold digger. Why would you sue for three million other than because you can. For everyone else regular child support would be fine

  23. Mandy says:

    I used to be absolutely IN LOVE with Liam Gallagher. I know he has always been a tool, but GAH, he was so HOT. Not so much anymore.

  24. minimi says:

    I used to like All Saints and Nicole Appleton a lot. I’m sorry for her. He was always a pathetic douche bag.

    • Kittypants says:

      Not to condone Liam’s behaviour in any anyway, but how could Nicole not have known exactly what she was getting into? I don’t know the guy personally but it’s obvious he’s always been a promiscuous cad. He barely hides the fact himself. I think they probably have an open marriage, as long as he keeps his indiscretions to himself and doesn’t embarass her. With that said, a baby is a whole other situation entirely. The shit is most definitely gonna hit the fan.

  25. Itsa Reallyme says:

    I just have one thing to say.


  26. Gal says:

    This story makes no sense to me. “Both parties have tried so hard to keep this secret” – well why hasn’t he just paid her off? She’s considering getting a DNA test?? If somebody was asking me for $3 million I would’ve demanded that from the first day. I’m confused.

  27. Gigi says:

    I’m lost as to why anyone would think it would be Chris Martin. He’s not your average rocker; he’s not a womaniser. A real decent guy from a really stable background. But LG doesn’t surprise me at all.

  28. Mairead says:

    Poor child – having to go through life as part-shaved-ape.

  29. The Original Ashley says:

    I knew it! Liam’s such a douchebag, I was always surprised they stayed together this long.

  30. nakka says:

    it’s going to cost him a lot more than $3 million, when Nicole divorces him and wants a substantial pay out as well. it’s very expensive being dumb isn’t it lol.
