(Yahoo!) - After legendary public fights with his brother/ex-bandmate Noel, scraps with photographers, and heated arguments with rival musicians, volatile vocalist Noel Gallagher is now being accused of being a deadbeat dad.
Liza Ghorbani, a 39-year-old New York-based writer, has filed a suit against Gallagher for $3 million, claiming that he is not taking responsibility for helping to raise their daughter.
Forsaking the cardinal rule of journalism — that is, not to get too close to one's subjects —Ghorbani allegedly had an affair with the singer after she was assigned to write a story for the New York Times column "A Night Out With." Ghorbani detailed the experience bar hopping and wandering through the Big Apple in a glowing article that came out in May 2010, but she seems to have left out some major details.
The New York Post reported that Ghorbani and Gallagher entered into an affair that lasted until three months after the birth of Ghorbani's daughter, who is now seven months old. Gallagher allegedly dumped the scribe when she threatened to sue him for child support.
The New York Post also noted that Ghorbani is considering undergoing DNA tests to confirm Gallagher is, in fact, the baby daddy. And the paper added that Gallagher acknowledged to an unnamed source that he’s the father: "Liam admitted the child is his in an e-mail, saying she is a beautiful child because she has 'rock star genes,'" the source said.
