Noel Gallagher has reignited his war-of-words with his brother Liam, blaming him for constant rumours that Oasis will reform and accusing his girlfriend Debbie Gwyther of fuelling the speculation.
The two have barely spoken since Noel walked out of Oasis in 2009 following a furious backstage bust-up with his volatile brother, but it appeared Liam had offered an olive branch in March (15) when he seemed to have attended a gig by Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds.
He posted a photo on Twitter.com showing himself with an 'all access' pass to the concert, alongside the message, "Keeping it in the family", and it sparked fresh speculation the brothers were heading for a reconciliation.
However, Noel has now spoken out to accuse Liam of misleading fans because the pass for the concert did not belong to him, and he even suggested Gwyther is behind the reunion rumours.
He tells Rolling Stone, "Well, it wasn't his pass. He wasn't there. It was my other brother's pass. If he had been at one of my gigs, you would've known about it because he'd have made his way onstage and started acting like a f**king gobs**te.
"He's being a bit disingenuous to Oasis fans in the sense that he always gets their hopes up. There was a rumour last week that we've had a gentleman's agreement (to reform Oasis), but that rumour's come from his people. It's a 'source close to him', and I'll tell you how close it is: She probably wakes up with him every morning. It's always left to me in an interview to let the kids down. People say, 'You're breaking these kids' hearts.' Well, what the f**k, man?"
Noel's comments provoked a swift response from Liam, who took to Twitter.com on Wednesday (06May15) to compare his estranged brother to controversial outspoken newspaper columnist Katie Hopkins, writing, "I see Noel Katie Hopkins Gallagher is talking out of his slack a**e again go and polish your SAXAPHONE Ha ha LGx."
