It's tough to find a story any messier than this: In what it is calling an "exclusive," the New York Daily News yesterday reported by way of a source that ex-Oasis frontman (and married man) Liam Gallagher fathered a 7-month-old love child with music reporter Liza Ghorbani. According to the article's time stamp, the New York Post ran a story of its own just shy of an hour later, reporting the same thing via "sources" and adding that a DNA test has proved it. Now the Daily Mail reports that while Gallagher's lawyer refuses to comment on the "gossip," he did say "legal action" was being taken against the Post.

The airing of the names follows the earlier report that Gallagher was being sued by an unidentified woman for $3 million in Manhattan Family Court. But that lawsuit was filed as the less-than-telling Anonymous vs. Anonymous. Per the Daily News, the affair allegedly began when Ghorbani wrote a 2010 profile of the rocker for none other than the New York Times. "He started an affair with her that night, they took a few months off, then started again," says the source. "It went on until she told him she was pregnant. He cut it off. He was so paranoid his wife would find out." The Post's slightly different take: "It continued until around three months after the birth of the child. He ended the relationship when she told him she was suing him for child support." Gallagher, who is married to Nicole Appleton, has three kids—one of which was the result of an affair during his first marriage, the Mail notes. (Read more Liam Gallagher stories.)
