Noel Gallagher is adamant the break-up of Oasis was “amicable” until his brother Liam began criticising him in interviews.
The Wonderwall hitmakers split in 2009 after a backstage bust-up in Paris, France, and the Gallagher brothers have been engaged in a public war-of-words ever since.

Now Noel has spoken out to insist the rockers remained on friendly terms following the split – until singer Liam spoke to the media about the break-up.

Noel tells British newspaper The Sun, “After I quit, we had to fold because we were all partners in various businesses – not businesses like selling oranges off the back of a truck, but a touring company and the record label had to close, which took a while and all the money needed to be split.

“So there was all that f**king nonsense, but as break-ups go, to be honest it was quite amicable. Then Liam started doing interviews and then it was like… hmmm.”

On Friday, it emerged Liam is taking legal action against his brother over comments the guitarist has made about the split.
