Liam Gallagher Says Noel Is A 'Little Bitch'

Liam Gallagher Beady Eye MTV Noel Gallagher Oasis The Answering Machine

Liam Gallagher has branded his brother Noel a "little bitch" for claiming he was bullied out of Oasis.

The singer was recently blamed by his guitarist sibling for forcing him out of the super-group with his aggressive behaviour - which culminated Liam attacking Noel with a guitar backstage before a Paris festival appearance in August 2009 - but the Beady Eye frontman insists he is just making excuses for wanting out.

In an interview with MTV Canada, Liam said: "I just know he lies. Noel wasn't bullied out of the band. And then he writes a statement saying 'Oh, I've been bullied out of the band,' and management and all that, and two days later, the people he reckons bullied him, and the people who weren't listening to his little sob story, were around at his house having tea on his lawn. I'm just disappointed for him, and his fans ... I have my [bad days] but Noel Gallagher can be a little bitch when he wants to be."

She said: "I was hysterical one day because I was calling Chaz's answering machine and I realized it was her old voice, and then I said, 'Chaz is there a way I can save it because I will never hear that voice again?' And there wasn't, it was gone.
