Liam Gallagher is reportedly ''fuming'' after his child support deal with Liza Ghorbani fell through.
The former Oasis frontman - whose five-year marriage to Nicole Appleton collapsed after it emerged last year he had fathered a love child with the New York based writer - is currently paying Liza $5,000 a month to help care for their 18-month-old daughter, Gemma, but she wants to probe the British star's net worth further in a deposition before reaching a permanent settlement.
Following a hearing on Monday (23.06.14), the 41-year-old rocker's lawyer Raoul Felder claimed Liza kept changing her demands and told the New York's Post Page Six: ''She's a very hard lady to satisfy.''
He added: ''This has been a tortuous route.''
A source close to Liam told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''Liam just wants the deal done and to move on. He was fuming they couldn't get it sorted out as it has been dragging on for a long time.''
But her lawyer, Ira Garr, insisted: ''We're still trying to settle.''
A source close to Liza also said: ''Liza is living with her parents, and they are the ones providing for Gemma and doing Liam's job.''
The 'Wonderwall' hitmaker, who embarked on a romance with Liza after she interviewed him in 2010, was not present for the hearing in front of a Manhattan Supreme Court judge, but phoned in from London.
Liza first sued Liam in the city's Family Court, but the case was dismissed.
Another hearing has been scheduled for late September, but Liam may be allowed to phone in to the proceeding again.
The 'Fade Away' singer also has three other children, daughter Molly, 16, with former flame Lisa Moorish, son Lennon, 14, with ex-wife Patsy Kensit, and 12-year-old son Gene with Nicole.
