Noel Gallagher has denied he rejected a £100m offer to reform Oasis, suggesting his brother Liam made the claim because “someone has a single to promote”.
The Manchester brothers have been involved in a bitter spat since the rock band split up in 2009 – but frontman Liam has repeatedly hinted that he wants the group to get back together.
On Monday, Liam Gallagher told his 3.2 million Twitter followers: “We’ve been offered 100 million pounds for a tour still not enough for the greedy soul oh well stay young LG.”
But Noel, who has rarely responded on Twitter to his younger sibling’s taunts, hit back on Tuesday evening.
He wrote: “To whoever might be arsed: I am not aware of any offer from anybody for any amount of money to reform the legendary Mancunian Rock’n’Roll group Oasis.
“I am fully aware though that someone has a single to promote so that’s maybe where the confusion lies.”
Noel has previously said that an Oasis reunion looks unlikely thanks to his “moron” brother’s online behaviour.
He told the Big Issue in November that every tweet posted by Liam is a “nail in the coffin” for a comeback for the band.
“It’s strange behaviour for someone who is gagging for me to pick up the phone and say let’s do it,” Noel said.
“He’d put his whole life on hold to get Oasis back together.
“But every tweet he sends out, it’s another nail in the coffin of that idea.”
Noel also accused Liam of sending threatening messages to his daughter Anais last year, posting a photo appearing to show a text in which his brother warns the teenager to “tell your step mam to be very careful”.
The message was apparently sent in response to an Instagram post by Noel’s wife Sara MacDonald, in which she described Liam’s solo Glastonbury performance as “a fat t*** doing a tribute act”.
The Gallagher brothers have both enjoyed success since the break up of Oasis, with Liam recording two solo albums and Noel performing with his High Flying Birds rock band.
