Liam Gallagher claims that 'Noel will sue him' if Oasis footage is included in new documentary
By NME Magazine
"I've just been informed that I’ll be sued by the not so mighty little fella."
The rock icon will release ‘As It Was’ later this year – a documentary that captures his tumultuous years with post-Oasis band Beady Eye and his eventual rise as a solo artist.
But he now claims that Noel’s management firm Ignition has threatened legal action if the film includes archive footage of his formative days in the legendary Britpop band.
“I’ve just been informed that I’ll be sued by the not so mighty little fella and his goons at ignition if I use any footage of me singing oasis yes oasis songs in AS IT WAS,” wrote Liam on Twitter.
“Who’s bitter now eh ps Dya want a hand selling those tickets AS YOU WERE LG x.”
A representative for Noel declined to comment when contacted by NME.
The threat of legal action comes after Liam praised the final cut of the documentary last week.
“Just seen the film As It Was and it’s mega,” wrote Liam on Twitter.
“Well done to all involved. As you were, as it was who are ya want some dickhead LG?”
Although the release date for the film has yet to be revealed, Liam’s fans can see him back on the stage this summer for a string of shows across Europe.
After releasing his solo debut ‘As You Were‘ in 2017, Gallagher has been in the studio working on the follow-up which is due to arrive later in 2019.
