Police question Liam Gallagher over alleged assault of girlfriend Debbie Gwyther


Police have questioned Liam Gallagher over the alleged assault of his girlfriend Debbie Gwyther.

Gallagher denied claims that he assaulted Gwyther by grabbing her by the throat as a tabloid newspaper leaked footage, “I have never put my hands on any woman in a vicious manner,” the former Oasis frontman tweeted at the time of the incident.

Gallagher’s denial was also echoed by his partner, Gwyther, who said: “Thanks for the kind words but you’ll be pleased to know it’s fake news. I can’t comment more than that as we are taking legal action,” she added.

However, a spokeswoman for London’s Metropolitan Police has said that an investigation is underway: “Officers are aware of footage of an incident consistent with assault believed to have taken place in August 2018.”

The police spokesman continued: “The footage has been assessed and inquiries will be made into the circumstances surrounding the alleged incident… No specific allegations have been received at this time.”
