George Michael - George Michael Defends Liam Gallagher

George Michael has defended Liam Gallagher after the rocker walked out of the pop legend's gig in London after just 23 minutes.

The former Oasis frontman attended the concert at Earls Court on Saturday (13Oct12) with his wife Nicole Appleton and a group of friends, but left the arena with his Beady Eye bandmate Andy Bell after just a few songs.

Gallagher's swift exit hit headlines, but the former Wham! star took to his Twitter.com page to insist he wasn't offended by the walk out.

In a series of posts, Michael writes, "Please don't hold it against Liam that he popped off to the bar at Saturday's show... He's a lovely guy and has always been really friendly to me...

"And very complimentary about my music... And anyway he was getting a load hassle from people who spotted him so it's not surprising he went for for a bevvy (drink)..."
