The mother of Liam Gallagher's 12-year-old daughter has poured scorn on the rocker's claims he's "a top dad" - insisting he has deliberately stayed "out of" their child's life. The Oasis star boasted about his parenting skills during an interview with British newspaper The Sunday Times last weekend, telling the publication he takes his nine-year-old son Gene to school every day.
Gallagher admits he rarely sees his daughter Molly, by his ex-girlfriend Lisa Moorish, but is adamant it's "the best way" because the former couple argues whenever they meet. But singer/songwriter Moorish has now hit back - she claims Gallagher, who she has dubbed 'The Man from Manchester', was "very angry" when she decided to go through with the pregnancy in 1997.
Taking to her Twitter.com page, she writes, "In response to an article... involving my daughter; 14 years ago I had a two year on/off relationship with a man from Manchester, as a result of that I became pregnant and had a beautiful daughter. The man from Manchester was very angry that I decided to go ahead with the pregnancy and decided to stay out of her life. I felt sad about it but accepted it. He agreed to pay his way. She is now 12 and the most amazing girl, loved by all around her."
"She is also old enough to catch wind (of) articles which mention her. My only wish is that she has a good relationship with me and her father which is between them and I would NEVER get in the way of that... I've made the best of a bad situation and will continue to do so."
In addition to Gene - whose mother is Gallagher's wife Nicole Appleton - and Molly, the rocker also has a 10-year-old son, Lennon, by his ex-wife Patsy Kensit.
