Liam Gallagher rejects criticism after Noel accuses him over messages

Liam Gallagher has brushed off criticism after his brother Noel accused him of sending “threatening messages” via his teenage daughter Anais.

The former Oasis frontman challenged critics to “get things into perspective” and asked: “Since when has telling somebody to be careful worse than wishing some1 drop dead or hoping someone dies of Aids.”

His message on Twitter came after Noel posted a screenshot to Twitter on Wednesday appearing to show a text sent by Liam to 19-year-old Anais, in which the singer apparently warns: “Tell your step mam to be very careful”.

The message was apparently sent in response to an Instagram post by Noel’s wife Sara McDonald, in which she described Liam’s Glastonbury performance as “a fat twat doing a tribute act”.

She added that his set on Saturday, which was dominated by Oasis songs, “is going to look pretty dated after Stormzy”.

After seeing the post, Liam reportedly texted Anais a screenshot along with the short warning.

In response, Noel shared a lengthy message on social media on Wednesday in which he referred to Liam’s new single Shockwave as “Shitwave”.

He also wrote: “So you’re sending threatening messages via my teenage daughter, are you now? You were always good at intimidating women though, eh?”

Liam later apologised to both Anais and his and Noel’s mother Peggy for involving them in the “childish” dispute.

He said on Twitter: “My sincere apologies to my beautiful mum Peggy and my lovely niece Anais for getting caught up in all of this childish behaviour I love you both dearly LG x”

Liam has previously claimed McDonald is blocking a potential Oasis reunion.

But the Gallagher siblings have feuded publicly since the break up of their band in 2009, prompted by a backstage brawl at Rock en Seine festival in Paris.
