Liam Gallagher is pushing ahead with legal action against his brother Noel, despite the former Oasis guitarist’s public apology over their recent spat.
The warring brothers have been at loggerheads since the Wonderwall hitmakers split in 2009, and their feud escalated earlier this year when Noel claimed the band was forced to pull out of Britain’s V Festival two years ago (09) because singer Liam had a hangover.

Liam was furious at the remarks, insisting he had a doctor’s note confirming he was suffering from laryngitis, and he issued a high court writ against his brother, demanding he retract the comments.

Last week, Noel admitted it was “a fact” that his brother was suffering from a sore throat at the time, and he apologized for his remarks – sparking reports Liam has now dropped his lawsuit.

But on Monday it emerged the legal action is still pending, and Liam is believed to be holding out for a written apology from his brother.

The Beady Eye frontman tells the BBC, “It’s not over yet. There are a few things which need to be sorted out. I didn’t want this to happen. It’s not nice suing your family but like I said, he was telling porkies (lies) for the sake of his mates and journalists to get a wise crack on me… If he listens to his lawyers and does the right thing then it’ll be well and truly over. I never wanted it to happen but it has to happen.”
