Ni­cole’s shock at Liam’s si­lence

Midweek Sport - - NEWS - By NEIL GOOD­WIN

NI­COLE APPLETON has not heard from Liam Gal­lagher since a US news­pa­per claimed that her hus­band fa­thered a child with an­other woman, her mother has claimed.

The 40-year-old for­mer Oasis star has said he is su­ing over the claims, but there have been fur­ther re­ports that his mar­riage is in deep trou­ble.

For­mer All Saints star Ni­cole, 38, was re­cently seen with­out her ring dur­ing a break in Or­lando, Florida.

And re­ports claim that Liam has also been spot­ted with­out his wed­ding band.

Dev­as­tated

Speak­ing to Grazia mag­a­zine, Ni­cole’s mother Mary was quoted as say­ing: “Liam hasn’t both­ered to call Ni­cole since (he told her of the al­le­ga­tions).

“He phoned her the day be­fore it came out and he hasn’t been in touch since.

“She can’t get hold of him. She’s absolutely dev­as­tated. This is so out of char­ac­ter for the Liam I know.” Ni­cole’s mother spoke to the mag­a­zine last week and her com­ments ap­peared in the pub­li­ca­tion yes­ter­day.

She said that her daugh­ter was “in a ter­ri­ble state”, adding: “It’s been so hard to come to terms with and so sad.”

She said: “I won’t say never to the idea of her tak­ing him back. But at the mo­ment, Ni­cole has no in­ter­est in hav­ing him back.”

Beady Eye star Liam and Ni­cole have been mar­ried since 2008 and have a 12-year-old son Gene.

The rock singer has been play­ing a se­ries of dates since the al­le­ga­tion about him fa­ther­ing a lovechild with a US jour­nal­ist was pub­lished by the New York Post.

Beady Eye are due to play eight dates in the UK in Novem­ber.

Ac­cord­ing to the Sun­day Times Rich List – pub­lished ear­lier this year – Gal­lagher is worth £74mil­lion, mak­ing his bank bal­ance big­ger than stars in­clud­ing The Who’s gui­tarist Pete Town­shend, Gary Bar­low and Kylie Minogue.
