Liam Gallagher has dropped a lawsuit against his brother Noel after he offered an olive branch during a webchat with fans.

The Beady Eye singer began legal action last week after Noel insinuated that Oasis cancelled their appearance at the V Festival in Chelmsford in 2009 because Liam had a hangover.


But on Monday (August 22), Noel admitted that Liam did have a doctor's note to prove that he was suffering from laryngitis, which was the official reason given for their cancellation.

“I'd just like to say that if he gets offended by my opinions on such things then I apologise,” Noel said.

According to The Sun, Liam decided to drop the lawsuit after speaking to their mother Peggy, who had been left upset by the whole saga.

"That was playing on his mind then he had a moment of realisation that Noel wasn't being vindictive - he was just being cheeky,” a source said.

“It was an anger that had built up over two years because he was so angry Oasis was over.”

The insider added: “In the cold light of day he realised his brother was actually being quite calm about it all, and decided a legal battle was a bad idea. Hopefully that will draw a line under it all and everyone can move on."

Noel and Liam's latest spat comes in the same week that Noel's debut solo single, 'The Death Of You And Me' was released.
