He famously has a very tumultuous relationship with his brother and Oasis bandmate Noel Gallagher.
But it seems Liam Gallagher is happy to put any animosity between the pair behind him for the sake of Noel’s daughter Anais.
The famous musician was spotted taking his niece and her mother Meg Mathews for lunch on Sunday to help her celebrate her 13th birthday.
The unlikely dinner companions were joined by Liam’s wife Nicole Appleton, their son Gene and Liam’s eldest son Lennon Francis from his first marriage with Patsy Kensit.
Noel Gallagher didn't appear to be have joined them for the family occasion.
The group, which also seemed to include two of the birthday girl’s friends, happily posed for pictures outside Lemonia, a family-run Greek restaurant in Primrose Hill.
Liam’s two sons both opted for bright coloured trousers to help their cousin see in her birthday, while the rest of the family opted for rock ‘n’ roll inspired outfits.
Meg, who split from Noel over a decade ago, was the only member of the group who wore light colours wearing an interesting striped shirt and trousers combo which looked like they had been inspired by pyjamas.
In 2000 Noel and Liam famously fell out after Liam made a derogatory remark about Noel’s then wife Meg, reportedly questioning whether Anais was his legitimate daughter.
The row was just the first of many for the brothers and in 2005 Noel said: ‘He’s my brother but he’s at arm’s length until he apologises for what he’s done.’
In 2009 Noel alleged that Liam came after him with a guitar ‘like an axe’ while the band were in Paris, resulting in Oasis splitting up.
That same year, Liam said: ‘It takes more than blood to be my brother. He doesn’t like me and I don’t like him.’
But now it looks like Liam is extending an olive branch to his brother by taking Anais out for her birthday and it’s clear Meg has no hard feelings towards the rocker.
Anais is signed to leading model agency Select and last year her mother Meg shared a snap of her taken by famous photographer Mario Testino.
Since splitting with his brother and the rest of Oasis, Liam appears to have mellowed somewhat and has been spending his time on his clothing range Pretty Green.
