Liam Gallagher has reacted angrily after he was mocked in an interview with his brother Noel.
The former Oasis bandmates' relationship was referenced in the feature published today, with the journalist saying she felt like asking Noel, 48, about his younger brother would be "like mocking the afflicted."
Slamming the rocker, 43, she wrote: "Liam, who once appeared to be living the dream, is now reduced to flogging mugs and bags, among other bagatelles, at his Pretty Green shops.
"Talking about him to his supremely accomplished and satisfied brother - whose dream it was, and who is still living it - would have seemed like mocking the afflicted."
But the father-of-three was less than impressed when he heard about the piece, and called The Sunday Times' Style magazine journalist Julie Burchill an "old tart" who he suggested should snort drugs instead of mocking him, after she admitted she "took loads of cocaine for 30 years."
Taking to Twitter, he raged: "Mocking the afflicted well you'd know all about that wouldn't ya have another line you old tart."
The furious tweet came just hours after he posted a rare selfie to brag about his holiday in Belize, Central America.
Posing topless for the snap, he wrote: "Let it BELIZE"
The former Beady Eye frontman has become increasingly vocal on the social network in the last month and just last week shut down claims he will be following in his older brother's footsteps by releasing a solo album.
He tweeted: "Solo record are you ****ing tripping d***head im not a c***."
But while Liam's been making arguments, Noel's been building friendships, revealing how he ended the Britpop war between Oasis and rivals Blur.
He explained: "We were in a nightclub - I hadn't spoken to him for years, but I hadn't slagged him off for years either. Me, the wife and the kids really liked Gorillaz.
"So when I passed him in the corridor, we said, 'let's go to the bar and get a beer.'
"And he said, 'Well, what was that all about?' And I said, 'Yeah, sorry 'bout that.' It was a bit weird, but it wasn't like two grown me having a weep about it.
"It was more like 'You know what? That time was f***ing brilliant, that stuff was f***ing great!'"
