Liam Gallagher told wife about secret love-child over the phone

Liam Gallagher had a relationship with another woman which marked the end of his marriage to Nicole Appleton, a family court judge has said.

Gallagher had told Appleton about the relationship "only when publicity was going to occur", said Judge Martin O'Dwyer.

The judge has given detail of the relationship in a ruling after Gallagher and Appleton became embroiled in a dispute over money following the break down of their marriage.

He did not identify the other woman involved.

"It was only when publicity was going to occur in April 2013 when Mr Gallagher told his wife," said the judge.

"The circumstances were extremely unfortunate.

"The wife was away on holiday and she was informed by telephone by (Gallagher)."

He added: "This unsurprisingly marked the end of the relationship between (Gallagher and Appleton)."

The judge said Appleton had been "greatly distressed".
