Liza Ghorbani is the woman who is claiming to have had a “love child” with Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher and is reportedly suing him for $3 million. Here’s what you need to know.
1. She’s a Music Journalist
Liza Ghorbani is a music journalist who specializes in interviewing celebrities. She has written for Elle, The Wall Street Journal, InStyle and The New York Times.
2. She Met Oasis Frontman Liam Gallagher in 2010
In 2010, Ghorbani met Gallagher when she interviewed him for an article for the Times called A Night Out With Liam Gallagher.
“Liam Gallagher looked as if he’d just stepped off Carnaby Street in London circa 1969,” Ghorbani wrote. “Turned out in a black velvet jacket with an upturned collar, skinny scarf around his neck and hair combed forward all modlike, the former Oasis frontman would have fit in well alongside Brian Jones and Ray Davies in their heyday.”
A source told The New York Post that the two began an affair that continued on and off for three years. The rock star has been married to All Saints singer Nicole Appleton since 2008.
3. They Had a Love Child Together
In January 2013, Ghorbani gave birth to a love child with Gallagher. According to the source, Gallagher even admitted that the baby was his. The claims were confirmed by a DNA test.
“Liam admitted the child is his in an e-mail, saying she is a beautiful child because she has ‘rock star genes’” said the source.
4. Gallagher Called of the Affair When Ghorbani Got Pregnant
“It went on until she told him she was pregnant,” the same source told the Daily News. “He cut it off. He was so paranoid his wife would find out.” the same source told the Daily News.
5. She’s Suing Gallagher for $3 Million
Now, Ghorbani is suing Gallagher in the Manhattan Family Court for $3 million for child support.
“Liza isn’t after millions of dollars, she is simply seeking child support and no amount has yet been set. If they don’t settle on a figure, the case will go to a public trial, like the one recently between Linda Evangelista and Francois-Henri Pinault”
